For a company that began by creating shoes meant to fuel world-class athletes, adidas has become just as well known for the Three Stripes design on its shorts and other apparel.

Always a Step Ahead

When Adolf “Adi” Dassler founded adidas in 1949, he envisioned athletes achieving world-class status while wearing his shoes. While he took a big step toward that goal when his soccer cleats powered the German national team to an international cup victory in 1954, it wasn’t long afterward that adidas began to expand its reach.

In 1967, adidas debuted its Franz Beckenbauer tracksuit. This first piece of apparel was designed to help the world’s greatest soccer player train. The zip-up jacket and pants duo was made of lightweight fabric that moved naturally and was easy to remove.

adidas shorts evolved from that suit, giving athletes something they could wear throughout their activities, not just warm-ups.

The classic look is a solid color set off by a contrasting Three Stripes mark down both sides. But adidas adds fresh twists too.

Compression is always on point, whether it’s for support during training or to lend shape to a great look for the streets. And adidas has the bicycle-style shorts to fit any outfit. Some include the adidas Trefoil logo that debuted in 1972 as a mark of athletic excellence but lives on as a callback to adidas’ heritage.

That look endures on adidas shirts as well, an ideal complement to any pair of shorts.

Step Out, Step Up

While adidas already had a long history of excellence on fields and courts, it wasn’t until hip-hop legends of Run-DMC dropped their single “My Adidas” in 1986 that the brand became a staple on the streets.

The trio would stomp around stages and in music videos in unlaced versions of the adidas Originals Superstar. The sleek, low-profile silhouette gives you countless options with a layered upper and hits of color.

adidas is still well versed in signature performance. The Dame collection offers a mid height with a mesh upper that lets your foot breathe while you lead by example, just like Damian Lillard.
