Adidas remains one of the more popular brands among sneaker fans, and it’s mostly due to the footwear offerings from its Kanye West to Pharrell Williams partnerships, as well as the demand for its own best-selling styles like the Ultra Boost and its classic Stan Smith.
For some context, the sportswear giant was created by the brothers Adolf “Adi” Dassler and Rudolf Dassler back in 1924 under the name Dassler Brothers Shoe Factory before the company was officially renamed Adidas in 1949. Since then, It has become the largest sportswear manufacturer in Europe and the second largest in the world.
Here are our picks of the most notable Adidas sneakers that fans can shop right now.
Adidas Ultra Boost
It has been more than four years since the debut of the Ultra Boost, but the shoe remains one of the most popular models from Adidas due to the simple design of its Primeknit upper, which is paired with plush Boost midsole cushioning for maximum comfort.
