How to Tell if adidas Sunglasses Are Fake or Authentic
How about a little blast from the past to start with. adidas AG (German pronunciation: [ˈadiˌdas]). adidas founder ‘Adi’ Dassler was just twenty when he started out in 1920. His passion and innovation created a name that is now sought all over the world. The brand name is appropriately uncapitalized, with a lower case “a.”…so please do be tempted to use a caps “A” the next time you spell the brand name. But I bet you probably didn’t know that adidas was founded by Adolf Dassler, following a family feud at the Gebrüder Dassler Schuhfabrik company between him and his older brother Rudolf. Rudolf had earlier established Puma, which quickly became the business rival of Adidas and is also headquartered in Herzogenaurach.
As a fashion writer and personal stylist, I’ll show you how to make sure you’re buying an authentic adidas sunglasses and how to tell the fakes…and that’s probably easier than you might imagine.
Purchasing a pair of original adidas sunglasses is very important because the cheap knockoffs don’t provide any kind of UV protection. We’ll focus more on adidas eyewear, the complete sports collection.
