Purple. I love them.
The greatest item of footwear in history.
I've just bought a pair of these, which I'm rather fond of: http://theawesomer.com/photos/2013/01/adidas_x_jeremy_scott_js_p_letters_t.jpg
adidas by miles
especially the vintage series
The founders of Adidas and Puma were brothers and they were both Nazi's
and tomato is a fruit. well done
gonna say naaaaaaah
but it's an interesting story:
Rudi (the Puma bro (Puma originally being Ruda)) convinced his brother Adi (of adidas fame) that the two of them should sign up to Hitler's wehrmacht as an act of patriotism (but really as a ruse to take over the business). When Adi reluctantly filled in the papers Rudi then binned his own application and sent off Adi's.
By a strange twist of clerical error Rudi ended up being called up and Adi didn't
it was after the war that Rudi set up his rival shoe company
at least that's how the legend goes
I'm being glib of course
Adi Dassler made the first pair of spiked running shoes
For Jesse Owens
For the 1936 Olympics
He approached Owens specifically, telling him he was clearly the best runner and wanted him to represent his brand
they were lifelong friends after that
Adi Dassler genuinely seems like one of life's good guys
Simply for innovation and design and the Air Max 90s. Look how beautiful these are: http://www.peepculture.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/07/nike-air-max-90-neutral-grey-white-midnight-fog-total-orange.jpg
Also the Flyknits: http://footpatrol.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/Nike-Flyknit-Collection-14.jpg
Although the Air Max 90s have gone a bit shit recently in that the edges of the soles are painted if they aren't white and after a few wears they start cracking. Really not what you expect from a pair of £95+ trainers.
What's next: Blur v Oasis?
not even close
i have some adidas stuff and it's nice, but nike has the really special stuff.
and paid her $35 for the work
oh i miss them so much
adidas shorts and shirts are more my cup of tea as well
as i only really care about football stuff, adidas hands down beats nike
("designed" some football boots) they sent me loads of stickers/key rings/badges/ and stuff.
great bunch of lads
Adidas stuff works far better in casual situations too, no competition.
Bought both World Cups and Copa Mundials (the Copas ended up being more comfortable, just) and they crippled me. Nike boots and astros seem to fit me much better. Shame as World Cups are lovely to play in.
used to have green (kiwi?)/black f50s
currently got some orange and black Preds.
always loved these Preds...
first boots were Reebok Sidewinders, though :)
