  1. Just a history lesson: Adolf Dassler(founder of adidas) was a high ranking nazi during the war so I thought it interesting having Jesse Owens(an African-American) as their athlete representative during the olympics

  2. actually, not really. He got a membership because if u didn’t u were denied rights. His case was reviewed by the us army and they passed him as a member but not supporter. Also dassler was friendds with owens and even sponsored him making custom shoes. Also his brother founded puma
