adidas sneakers, clothing and accessories with their instantly recognisable three stripes count among the leading sportswear brands in the world. From high-performance running shoes and soccer boots to casual streetstyle winners, adidas is at the top of their game. The sportswear giant is closely associated with soccer, having become internationally famous after sponsoring the German team's boots in their victory over Hungary, a team that hadn't lost a game in four years, in the 1954 Football World Cup final. In fact, in 1970 adidas added another sporting victory to its name when it supplied the official FIFA World Cup football in 1970. Made up of black and white panels, the adidas Telstar was the first ball to sport the famous black and white panels we know today.
