I'd rather Adidas myself


One of the reasons I have way too many pairs of classic Adidas and Puma trainers is because I never had any when I was growing up.

I remember being devastated getting a no-name brand of sneakers for my 13th birthday rather than the beautiful Adidas Beckenbauers that I really wanted.

I also remember taking to the football field hoping that no one noticed my 'Adidas' boots only had two stripes rather than three.

Many times I contemplated using white paint to add the missing stripe.

Which kinda makes me think that the creatives who came up with this ad for K-Swiss had a similar childhood.

Problem is, I don't think anyone with a pair of Adidas Gazelles would ever wish they were wearing K-Swiss.

Ever.
