When Adi Dassler registered his company “Adi Dassler adidas Schuhfabrik” on August 18th, 1949, little did he know that, 60 Years later, the brand with the 3-Stripes would be one of the most famous and successful global brands. This year, adidas celebrates its 60th anniversary with a look back on the greatest moments in its history.

It still seems an unlikely story: a modest shoemaker from a small rural town in Germany develops a range of sports products so original and so perfect that they are sought by athletes from all over the world. As he indulges his passion for sport and for innovation, he creates a brand as great as any in the world. An unlikely story, but not impossible. To adidas, Impossible is Nothing.

May it be Nadia Comaneci’s perfect 10, Bob Beamon’s jump into the history books, the Miracle of Bern or Stefanie Graf’s Golden Slam – adidas was always a part of the greatest moments achieved on the pitch, the court and the fields around the world, displaying the same passion and innovative spirit Adi Dassler started the company with all those years ago. And it is these stories that still inspire adidas 60 Years later - and will continue to do so for the decades to come.

“Adi Dassler’s interest and passion for sport were the focal point of his life. He regarded it as his task to help all athletes perform better by providing them with the best possible product. adidas has remained true to this mission for six decades and has thus become one of the best known and most popular brands in the world. The motivation of our company founder and his close association with sport will continue to shape our path in future on our way to becoming the world’s leading sports brand,” says Erich Stamminger, President of the adidas brand.

Adi Dassler died in 1978, at the age of 78, but his ideas, his efforts and passion still live on today. With new innovations, new divisions and new developments, adidas still relies on its founder’s motto which is now represented by the brand’s attitude: Impossible is Nothing.

shearer, I would say you should read my piece on orange shirts on DesignFootball.com. It didn&#039;t stop &#039;em last time.<br /><br />I can&#039;t believe I&#039;m gonna say this but...whilst it&#039;s totally wrong and it should never be made, it looks really cool.

No mention of the split with his brother Rudolf, who, of course, founded Puma? I\'m surprised. It\'s fairly a interesting and important part of the adidas tale.

Long may the greatest and most innovative brand continue.
