The adidas name dates back to 1948, deriving from the first two syllables of Adi Dassler’s first and last name. A year later, Adi Dassler registered the Three Stripes as a trademark. The adidas Trefoil logo was introduced in 1972 and can be found on early shoe models such as the Superstar and the Stan Smith. Today, the adidas brand effectively consists of three sub-brands; adidas Originals – the ‘heritage’ line (and the very special line we’ll be carrying), adidas Performance – cutting-edge contemporary products for athletic excellence and adidas Y-3, a sports/fashion collaboration between adidas and fashion designer Yohji Yamamoto
