Did you know what ADIDAS means?


Adidas is a major German-based sports apparel manufacturer, producing not only footwear but also bags, shirts, eyewear and other goods, related to sports. The name of the company comes from the name and surname of its founder Adi Dassler. In 1949, he took the first two syllables from his first (Adi) and last name (das) to create the name for his line of athletic shoes.
But there’s only another version referring to the meaning of the word. It’s said that ADIDAS means “All Day I Dream About Sports”. But if we carry out a little investigation on the internet, we’ll find out where this version comes from…
ADIDAS is not only a sportswear company name. It also refers to an American rock band “Korn”, which in spite of this, doesn’t have any connection with the company. On March, 1997, the band released a single, named “A.D.I.D.A.S”. The title is an acronym for the statement “All Day I Dream About Sex”. Slightly modifying the name of the song people with good imagination added another meaning to the word ADIDAS – “All Day I Dream About Sports”, which fully complies with the company.
