The sportswear brand Adidas was formally founded in 1949. By that point, founder Adi Dassler and his brother Rudolf had been working together for over 20 years already, making running shoes with spikes on them under a different a name. Unfortunately, Adi and Rudolph had a falling out and their original business, the Dassler Brothers Shoe Factory, dissolved and each brother started their own business - Rudolph began Puma and Adi Adidas. Since then, Adidas has become one of the most popular sports brand in the world. Currently, the brand sponsors soccer players, runners, tennis players, skateboarders, and many, many more. Adidas is known for their three strips, which appear on apparel and shoes and logos alike, which have been an integral part of the brand since they acquired them in 1952. This vintage Adidas shirt has light fading and wear.
