Adidas Firebird Jackets And Track Tops

There are a lot of Adidas Firebirds Jackets design, but all of them are almost the same as there are vertical lining at the sleeves of the jackets, the lining colours is different but match the full jacket colours.

I think why the Adidas made the jackets name Firebird is because the lining colour and the jacket colours match up like a glowing bird, which is why they called it the Firebird.

I would rate at least 99% for the Adidas Firebirds Jackets!

Adidas Did You Know? - Adidas And Puma Bother Relationships

Did you know that Adidas founder Adolf Dassler's Brother is actually his enemy in business? Rudolf Dassler, brother of Adolf Dassler, is the founder of Puma, a sportswear company that mostly manufactures sport footwears.

Puma is more popular in their football shoes, and have sponsored with a lot of good football players like Pele, Buffon and many more. Since Puma is one of the most popular sports apparel manufacture company in the world, this means that they are also enemy with the Adidas company! But of course the main rival of Adidas is Nike!

Adidas And Reebok Partnerships Contract

Adidas does not only have rivals in business, they also have partners in their business too. One of Adidas partners company is Reebok.

In 2005, Adidas wanted to buy a popular shoe manufacturer company, Reebok for 3.8 billion, but Reebok did not want to sell it to Adidas.

In 2006, the negotitation had ended and Adidas and Reebok decided to merge together instead to compete with the main rivalry Nike Company. This means Nike face another populat footwears company, Reebok.

What I feel that Nike Footwear will have impact since Reebok is a good footwear manufacturer company, but I do not feel that Nike will have much impact on other apparel they manufacture. But Reebok is a very good footwear company from what I feel.

Adidas logo have changed since it was founded.

Take a look at the Classic Adidas Logo and the New Adidas Logo, which one do you think is nicer?

In my opinion, I think the New Adidas Logo is nicer because I think it is much more simple and plain. The Classic Adidas Logo is more complicated I think, so I prefer the new logo, but that is just my own opinion.
