If you want to learn about the history of Adidas, where to find them online and why you should choose Men’s Shoe Centre, then keep on reading…

The History of Adidas

Initially started in a wash room, no one would have expected Adidas to skyrocket like it did. Adi Dassler started up his company Gebrüder Dassler Schuhfabrik in 1924 and began his mission to create the best possible shoes for athletes that ever were. Adidas as it is known today was officially registered in 1949, and so the famous three stripes were born. The brand gained much of its success when they supplied studded boots to the German national football team, who went on to win the 1954 World Cup final against Hungary! The 60s saw the launch of Adidas apparel and by 1970, Adidas had revolutionised televised football with the advent of the TELSTAR ball – designed to be more visible on television… The rest of the success is literally history, with Adidas taking the world by storm.

How to wear

Adidas uniquely combine athletic footwear with stylish every day shoes to meet anyone’s needs. We think these Adidas shoes are the best picks for any occasion:

For performing on the sports field or going hard at the gym, we recommend our Adidas Element Race, a sleek and fashionable running shoe with breathable nylon mesh uppers and Cloudfoam outsoles for maximum comfort.

A night out on the town can’t be complete with out some snazzy sneakers to update your look. Our best picks start, of course, with the classic Adidas Superstar, available here, which exemplify the simplicity and ease of the brand. This retro style will never go out of style.

If you are looking for a little more funk, we would like to highlight the Adidas Light Em Up 2, a black and red basketball boot that will elevate any look.

If you’re looking for a casual retro court sneaker, then perhaps the Adidas Seely – get them here – shoes are for you. This style sports suede leather uppers and great black and beige detailing.
