Adidas was founded in 1948 by Adolf Dassler, following the split of Gebrüder Dassler Schuhfabrik between him and his older brother Rudolf. Rudolf later established Puma, which was the early rival of Adidas. Registered in 1949, Adidas and Puma are both currently based in Herzogenaurach, Germany. The company's clothing and shoe designs typically feature three parallel bars, and the same motif is incorporated into Adidas's current official logo.[4][5] The company revenue for 2012 was listed at €34.48 billion.[2] History[edit] An Adidas Store Conflicts[edit] Christoph Von Wilhelm Dassler was a worker in a shoe factory, while his wife Pauline ran a small laundry in the Bavarian town of Herzogenaurach, 20 km (12.4 mi) from the city of Nuremberg.

María Mérida — @WinonaMF — "Una verdadera superestrella conoce la importancia de la individualidad. No tiene que ver con seguir al resto de la manada, o decirle a otra persona qué llevar. No puedes imponer un estilo a una superestrella –ni una tendencia o color–. " Este es el manifiesto que ha inspirado la colección adidas Originals Supercolor, una colaboración muy especial orquestada por el polifacético Pharrell Williams –que lo mismo diseña que compone el temazo más bailado y cantado de la última década– y que tiene como objetivo versionar la clásica silueta Superstar a través de un espectro de 50 colores diferentes. Así pues, mediante la combinación de ese concepto de individualidad y la libertad creativa de Williams, la colección adidas Originals Supercolor Superstar ofrece una cantidad infinita de opciones para todos los clientes.

KANYE WEST's Yeezy show has ruffled more than a few feathers at New York Fashion Week. Having announced when it would take place just five days in advance - upsetting two other designers, Anne Bowen and Naeem Khan, who were scheduled to show at the same time -rumours have today emerged that he angered the models who walked for him by asking them to sign non-disclosure agreements (NDAs). Related Show "Kanye's hacked off some really high-profile models by asking them to sign the agreement, particularly because it stated that he could sue them for up to $10million if they spoke out about him," a source told The Mirror of the NDAs, which allegedly prohibit the signees from talking about the collection, Kim Kardashian West and her family, and the designer himself.

"He's not considered a great talent - everyone knows his show is just a media frenzy, so some girls would rather not be associated with him," continued the source. Kanye West Leaves Nike for Adidas and a Reported $10 Million. Kanye West has reportedly closed a $10 million deal with Adidas after severing his creative partnership with Nike. Last week in an interview with Hot 97, the man behind SPIN’s Album of the Year explained that Nike had failed to offer him decent royalties on his Air Yeezy shoe, while in his recent Barclays rant he said the iconic brand had also delayed the release of his new Red Octobers in order to convince stores to order additional less-desirable stock.

During West’s heated Shade 45 interview with Sway, he had words for Nike’s CEO: “Mark Parker … I will still accept an investment in DONDA. I’ve got some more ideas that don’t involve shoes [so] if you guys are investing in the arts … I am standing up and I’m telling you. “Adidas” is the answer for the time being, it seems. “For 2014, we welcome to the adidas family one of the most influential cultural icons of this generation, Kanye West,” Adidas said via statement, lowercasing their own name in the presence of his mighty genius.

Analysis - Adidas marketing push an uphill battle against cool Nike. BERLIN Sportswear firm Adidas (ADSGn.DE) probably thought it had hit the marketing jackpot when Adidas-sponsored Germany beat Adidas-sponsored Argentina to win the Adidas-sponsored World Cup.But arch rival Nike (NKE.N) may have stolen much of its soccer branding thunder with quirky videos, innovative boots and amusing Tweets, not to mention the odd sponsorship coup of its own such as signing up hosts Brazil.Adidas said it had secured “victory on and off the pitch” at the soccer tournament, providing the highest-scoring boots and generating 22 percent more discussion on social media than Nike.

But more than half the players displayed Nike's brightly-coloured shoes and it was one of Nike's new lightweight "Flyknit" boots worn by Germany's Mario Goetze that volleyed in the winning goal. While Nike has encroached on Adidas's home territory, the German firm has failed to make serious inroads in North America.

How Adidas Is Learning To Be More Like Kanye. Brash. Opinionated. Egotistical. Atonal. Polarizing. And Adidas, the German-run athletic wear company known for its bland European appeal, is refocusing its efforts through the lens of all things American. "The biggest thing for me is that [consumers] will have to make a conscious decision that they’re part of this brand," says Brian Foresta, head of basketball design at Adidas. A New Leader In a call with investors last March, Adidas CEO Herbert Hainer appeased nervous shareholders with a futuristic vision of the company. At the heart of this plan sits Paul Gaudio, the company’s 10-month-old global creative director. "My personal feelings, being an American and having spent lots of time working professionally in this market, it’s really where things start," Gaudio tells Co.Design.

An Aggressive Reorganization But to capture American culture in their product, Gaudio would need to reorganize Adidas to function more like an American, design-led company.
