Adidas, in full Adidas AG, Is a German manufacturer of athletic shoes, apparel, accessories and sporting goods.
The company was started by Adolf Dassler in his mother's house; he was joined by his elder brother Rudolf in 1924 under the name Gebrüder Dassler Schuhfabrik ("Dassler Brothers Shoe Factory").
In the early 21st century it was the largest sportswear manufacturer in Europe and the second largest (after Nike) in the world. Adidas products are traditionally marked with a three-stripe trademark, which remains an element in the company’s newer “trefoil” and “mountain” logos. Headquarters are in Herzogenaurach, Germany.
Today Adidas remains to be one of the largest contributors to the streetwear scene and partakes in collaborations that almost always sell out instantly.
