Store Marketing Activations Expert - Adidas
At adidas, every day is a chance to flip the script. An invitation to take everything we know and re-invent it. Do it better. Never settling for good enough. Every day we get up, invent, adapt, improvise, find new ways to collaborate, and do the unexpected. We’re creators, makers and doers. Helping athletes make a difference, not just in their games, but in their lives and in their world. It’s an obsession.
We’ve been doing this for more than 65 years. With an unmatched history and tradition of creating iconic products, consumer connections and experiences, we’ve been defining sport culture since the beginning. And we’re never done. Come be a part of shaping the future together with us.
Innovation is in the DNA of adidas Originals. Our founder Adi-Dassler constantly strived to evolve his creations. Nothing was ever too sacred, too set in stone to be reexamined, rebuilt and redefined. The trefoil embodies that same spirit – our past empowers our future. We are a work in progress brand, committed to learning, growing and evolving. Through the lens of Originals, we pride ourselves on forever challenging the status quo – through culture, product and our commitment to the consumer.
The time has come to set a new benchmark for retail in the footwear industry, and no other brand is placed like adidas Originals to do so. We will redefine what a brand store can be, with spaces truly created for the Streetwear Hound and Sneakerhead. A space that invites them to create with us. A space that reveals something new and yet honors the past – a fitting location for the product that attracts the Streetwear hound and Sneakerhead to the brand, generation after generation – a store like no one but adidas Originals could create.
