Adidas, whose original name was Dassler Brothers Shoe Factory, was created in Germany in 1924 when Adi Dassler decided to create a model of tennis named after the union of their two names. In 1927 his brother Rudolf joined the business and in 1936, at the Olympic games of the Nazi era, Adi went to the Olympic village to convince the famous African-American sprinter Jesse Owens to wear his sneakers shoes. Jesse Owens was the first athlete sponsored by Adidas.

In 1947 the brothers separated and Rudolf created another great sports equipment company, Puma.
