adidas 4DFWD First Impressions

Those of you that read my adidas 4D Run 1.0 Review know that adidas’ 3D-printed 4D tech intrigues me. The 4D Run 1.0 was a good casual shoe, but can’t be classified as a true running shoe due to its stiff midsole setup. But adidas continues to use Carbon’s 3D printing technology to experiment and find a midsole pattern that

adidas Top Ten 2000: The Kobe Before The Kobe

The adidas Top Ten 2000, originally released in 1996, was one of the first shoes Kobe Bryant wore in the NBA. Adidas recently released a retro version but it didn’t release in the USA. Chris was eagerly anticipating this piece of history and was only able to snag this overseas exclusive model by browsing eBay. So yes, at WearTesters we’re

adidas Forum 84: The BEST Retro of 2021 So Far

The best retro of 2021 so far is the adidas Forum 84 High. Yeah, we know that’s surprising as most of you were probably expecting something else. Like maybe a Jordan 1 or Jordan 5. But we can’t lie. We can just tell it like we see it. Click play above to see Chris’ full review of the adidas classic

adidas N3XT L3V3L Futurenatural

The adidas N3XT L3V3L Futurenatural is the third adidas Next Level model and features the same midsole/outsole technology as the adidas Harden Vol. 5. As usual with the Next Level series, it’s a laceless shoe. But this time, the Futurenatural construction really changes the fit and feel.

adidas Ultraboost 21

The adidas Ultraboost 21, the latest model in the ultra-popular Ultraboost series, is newly updated with 6% more Boost for 2021. We enjoyed both the adidas Ultraboost 20 and adidas Ultraboost 19 so we’re excited to see what the 2021 version brings to the table. The Ultraboost 21 appears to really focus on runners while also upping its sustainability. However,

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!
