Asking what is the origin of Adidas is an interesting query. In August 18, 1949, Adidas registers as a company. The name Adidas comes from 'Adi' from Adolf and 'Das' from Dassier. In 1954, Adidas creates the first soccer boots with removable studs.
In 1996, apparel sales increase by 50% with the company dressing 6,000 Olympiads from all over the world. In 1997, Adidas AG acquires the Salomon Group along with Taylormade, Mavic, and Bonfire. The company is renamed Adidas-Salomon AG.
