adidas Mahomes 1 Impact FLX Review

The adidas Mahomes 1 Impact FLX is Patrick Mahomes’ first ever signature shoe and we’re excited for what it can offer. Only a handful of football players have ever had signature sneakers, let alone training-focused ones. Adidas wants these to be your go-to for the gym or any other sport-specific training. And, with how they feel, they just might be

adidas D Rose Son of Chi Review

The adidas D Rose Son of Chi may not be the next signature D Rose model, but it feels like it’s going to perform well nonetheless. With the reinstitution of Bounce, which almost got phased out, we are looking forward to a solid on court basketball shoe. We’re also glad that Derrick Rose is finally getting back that signature athlete

Boost is life became a common expression among sneakerheads circa 2010. And the fact is that Boost is one of the best cushioning systems to hit the market in recent years. Check out our full breakdown of this revolutionary cushioning system.

adidas Exhibit A Performance Review

The adidas Exhibit A, the brand’s latest team basketball shoe, has landed. Thanks to the power of the internet, I was able to grab a pair for testing and a timely performance review. Is this “successor” to the adidas Pro Boost worth the time of players with an interest in the silhouette? Time to share some thoughts and experiences. Traction

adidas Ozelia

adidas Ozelia Review

The adidas Ozelia is a new, nostalgic-looking sneaker from the three-striped brand. On first look, people may mistake it for a new Yeezy, and it definitely has elements of that, but you might be surprised by its price and comfort. Hype is created by people to drive resell values through the roof. We’re glad this doesn’t have any of that

adidas DON Issue 3 Review

The adidas DON Issue 3 is next in line for Utah’s main man, Donovan Mitchell. After an incredible season with the Jazz finishing as the top team in the West, we hope for more of the same from his signature sneaker. And we have reason to believe that could be true. There are elements from the previous two releases, but

YEEZY QNTM BSKTBL Frozen Blue

Our adidas YEEZY QNTM BSKTBL Frozen Blue video starts with a retraction. Why? Because the differences between the YZY QNTM and YZY BSKTBL are not clearly delineated by adidas, YEEZY brand, or Kanye West. We never got straight answers. The result? Some of Chris’ assertions in the previous adidas Yeezy QNTM video were incorrect. But now that Chris was finally

adidas Yeezy QNTM

The adidas Yeezy QNTM BSKTBL has been the subject of a lot of intense debate. Is it a lifestyle shoe or a basketball shoe? Both the Yeezy brand and adidas haven’t offered any official answers. To add to the confusion, what the various sneaker blogs are saying doesn’t match up.

History of adidas

Adidas is a German shoe and sportswear brand founded and headquartered in Herzogenaurach. Adidas is the largest sportswear brand and manufacturer in Europe, and the second-largest in the world, behind Nike. 

The adidas Group currently owns Reebok, the iconic sportswear company, a small ownership stake in the German football club Bayern Munich, and Runtastic, an Austrian fitness technology company. 

The company was founded by Adolf Dassler and originally operated out of his mother’s house. Adolf’s older brother Rudolf joined him in 1924 and the Dassler Brothers Shoe Factory was born.

Dassler assisted in the creation of spiked running shoes and switched out the traditional metal spikes for rubber, making the shoe lighter and better suited for competition. Dassler actually convinced the great Jesse Owens to use his shoes during the 1936 Summer Olympics.

Then, in 1949, the two brothers had a falling-out and Rudolf left the company. Rudolf would go on to create another shoe brand you might have heard of: Puma. Adolf would end up changing the company’s name to adidas and the brothers would continue their feud for the rest of their lives. 

The adidas logo which consists of three stripes was actually purchased in 1952 from a Finnish sports company by the name of Karhu Sports for the equivalent of $1,897 euros and two bottles of whiskey. Awesome!
