Adidas Shoes – The Adidas brand made its way into the world from the bowels of two siblings. They hailed from Bavaria, Germany. When one of the two brothers (Adolf Dassler) became 20. He created his very first set of shoes, and before 1920. He and his brother Ruduolf had created their own small brand named ‘DASSLER SHOES’, and had already set aims of becoming they best athletic shoe company in the market.
The set of shoes produced by these boys, were done in the laundry room of their mother. And despite being a small dream without any major financial backing. Their company started to grow.
