adidas originals – the adidas brand.
Adolf Dassler dreamed of making the perfect shoe for every sportsman. With this vision in mind, he started to make shoes back in the 1920s and, in 1949, filed an application for a patent on the now unmistakable trademark, the three stripes. In August 1971, the Trefoil was born out of more than 100 ideas. Inspired by the 3-Stripes, it is a geometric execution with a triple intersection, symbolising the diversity of the adidas brand.
