At age 20, athlete Adolf “Adi” Dassler set out to craft shoes that would help athletes reach their full potential and avoid injury. His timing was unfortunate: just after World War I, raw materials were scarce. Still, he managed to acquire enough canvas to construct his first pair. After only a few years, his footwear became wildly popular. In 1928, several athletes wore his shoes while competing, with one runner capturing a gold medal and setting a world record.
His real breakthrough came, however, at the 1954 World Cup championship game between Germany and Hungary—remembered in soccer lore as the Miracle of Bern. The field was a muddy swamp, and Dassler outfitted the long-shot German team with screw-in studs, and they won their country’s first World Cup. The studs marked a turning point for not only for Dassler’s company but also soccer teams and pristine grass fields around the world.
I’m not sure how I feel about the condition of the product when I received it! The box was destroyed and I’m not sure if these were used sneakers! I am really disappointed in the product, well the appearance of the product! This was supposed to be a Christmas gift for my son and I don’t think I’m going to wrap them! They honestly look used. He’s only 23, so may not notice but I myself am unsure:(
