adidas (*aka adidas AG) is the largest sportswear manufacturer in Europe, second only to Nike, Inc. globally.  In addition to The Brand With The Three Stripes, the adidas Group controls Reebok, Rockport and TaylorMade-adidas.

adidas begins in 1948 in Herzogenaurach, Bavaria, when founder Adolf Dassler leaves brother Rudolf and their Dassler Brothers Shoe Factory (*which endures and is now Puma SE).
