Adidas Sport Perfomance.
In this direction, it produces goods exclusively for training, equipped with advanced technology of the company, using the innovation and also starts the production of “smart things”: watches, fitness bracelets, etc.
Adidas Sport Heritage (Originals).
In this direction of production Adidas company does not present its latest innovations for training and sports. Things that belong to the everyday casual style are produced. The main emphasis is on fashion trends, but not on new technologies. This direction functions since 2001, though before that there were different preconditions of its creation.
Adidas Sport Style (now Adidas NEO).
It is characterized by the fact that all the fruits of cooperation of the German concern with the leading and famous designers in the fashion world are gathered here. It has been running since 2002, but in 2007 Adidas Originals and Adidas Sport Style merged, and the logos of these two divisions are still present on sportswear and footwear.
For instance American singer and actress Selena Marie Gomez a few years ago designed her own collection of clothes called StellaSport. A special place in this direction is the Adidas SLVR collection, whose main concept is convenience, simplicity and practicality – casual style.
Strange as it may seem, but the most popular among the wider population is Adidas Originals. That’s where fashionistas, teenagers find the perfect thing for themselves. However, Adidas NEO and Adidas Perfomance do not lose momentum, remaining as relevant areas of production, as a decade ago.

In contrast to the wide range of activities of Adidas and Nike, Puma is not involved in organizing friendly matches, for example.
