Founded by brothers Adolf & Rudolf Dassler in 1929 as the Dassler Brothers Shoe Factory. They quickly made a mark in the athletic footwear industry with their developments in spiked footwear for runners.
It was famously named adidas (with a lower case 'a') after Rudolf left the company over a breakdown in his relationship with his brother. Who subsequently went on to found Puma. Since then the brand with the 3-stripes has grown into one of the biggest streetwear companies on the planet.
The adidas city series epitomises that retro look. Whether its seen on the feet of those in the football terraces or those on stage. The minimalist design of the Hamburg has been on the feet of greats across a variety of backgrounds. The design hasn't changed much in the last 40 years, but new updates in the sole and materials mean that you get the same classic look with an updated design.
