> Additionally, adidas’s Ultra Boost is now the best selling running shoe. According to Deutsche Bank analyst Dave Weiner, “In the past, Nike has dominated the running category with its Roshe and Free platforms,” Weiner added. “So Adidas’ recent encroachment is noteworthy.”
>>10951521 Heard Mayor mention the (at the time) unheard-of AF1 flyknit concept way back in a video interview. They sounded interesting in concept, but the execution was sloppy. This looks like some bootleg china shit.
>>10951702 >that doesn't mean much there are only 35 companies in the the S&P500 over 100B in Mkt Cap >sketchers is such a huge monopoly as well... They are 1/4 the size of adidas(~5B). Monopoly is not the right word to use here. Not even oligopoly. The global sneaker market is highly competitive. Also, sketchers specifically was sued by nike for using flyknit technology, so much for innovation. Finally it is clear that boost technology is a rip from the flyknit. Adidas was able to do it slightly different and avoid a lawsuit. I love Adidas, I love Nike. Irrelevant. But if this thread was made ~2 years ago, or anytime before, the OP would be
>tfw this is what adidas has done so far this year
>>10951521 that,s because nike doesn't let their collaborators have as much creative control. nor do they pic any good collaborators, see ricardo tisci, and errolson ,the only good collaborator they have right now is jun takahashi with gyakuso.
>>10952082 >Finally it is clear that boost technology is a rip from the flyknit. >boost that's a fucking sole you dumbass while flyknit is the woven upper not to mention adidas started to develop primeknits around the same time as nike started to work with flyknits, nike just pushed the sneakers to the market faster probably because they can spend more money to do something like that, it's not a rip-off if anything we will probably see nike do boost rip-off sometime soon considering how fucking popular the sole is and how comfortable they are
