I can assume you mean because Adidas was founded by a nazi. The nazi brother of the founder of Puma.
Let it go man, let it go.
"Failure is my greatest fear. Yours is probably heights or spiders or some silly shit."
I gotcha now.
That may have been the impression of the story but I disagree from my experience with them. I had a chance to go to their Oregon campus through work and was blown away by everything there. We got to see the design process and I was impressed by the science going into their shoes.
A small example, Nike has never been a big competitor in the running shoe market versus Asics and Brooks. However last year they decided they were going to use the Lunar Glide 4 to get back into the market and compete with those long established running brands. The shoe win numerous awards and recognitions from running publications. It goes to show what they can do when they choose to attack something aggressively.
I think it's hard to talk about something in terms of shoe comfort in absolute terms though. Personally, I can't wear Adidas or Under Armour shoes. They are too narrow for me. No cleat or shoe will be comfortable for everyone.
You'd be wrong.
Well then you should know they don't compare. And I'm talking about the high end adidas jersey, the stretchy one
The Nike one is definitely weird, I'm not arguing that. It's heavier. I just don't think it matters once you are on the field. I don't think it'll make a performance difference.
Jerseys and stuff are secondary to the shoes though. Adidas is on this super light shoe kick. It leads to issues for athletes ie Derrick Rose and having to redesign his crazy light shoes.

The adidas cleats were terrible when we first switched. They're very good now. They've come a long way
At least they're learning.
Like I said earlier, I'm a Nike snob and sneaker head. That's a bad combination when it comes to talking about Adidas lol.
man i highly doubt the show had anything to do with his ACL injury. it was just a freak of nature accident.
see for me its UA all the way. i prefer their cleats than Nike or Adidas. also like UA's shoes in general better. better flip flops, better shorts, and better shirts. but thats just me.
Did our jerseys suck this year? Were our players and fans excited about the black jerseys and helmets? It will be interesting to see what happens. Nike is king, but Adidas stepped up big time this year. Sumlin might actually fox with it for a bit.

Adidas was also responsible for these last year...
Go Blue & Gig Em'!
Not one recruit likes Adidas over Nike. Not one. HTH. Lock thread.
I say that I was an equipment manager to validate my opinion. I'm glad you like Nike, but I've actually worked with both Nike and adidas equipment and I've heard the players opinions on both
Who cares shermanager? Go look at the NCs... What do they wear?
Sorry, I'll fall into line because Nike is prettier. I'll quit trying to give an opinion--I accidentally thought this was a message board
Cat - Can we be the first to break that trend? Jokes Jokes
Auburn sure looked good in those Nike jerseys when they beat NikeU... Oh wait.
You kids need to understand the status symbol is the block aTm on the helmet they wear. That's where it begins and ends.
The Nike v Adidas debate is so old. Who ever pays us the most cash wins the bid. It's that f'ing simple. Do you really think our brass cares about what apparel company Matt Davis' desire?? Hahahahaha. Dude is wearing his Adidas kicks and smiling just being a part if TEXAS A&M. Get it?
