    Default Adidas Badminton clothing and footwear

    Rumor has that adidas is getting into badminton and Viktor Axelsen is one of their first players. Sounds like a huge thing if such a giant really decides to make badminton apparel but I doubt they will also manufature rackets. Anyone got any details?

    They are already sponsoring the Japanese players Ikeda and Shiota for a few years and have their specific clothing and the badminton shoes for which there is a thread here already . These shoes are already available in Germany for years as well but marketed as Handbal shoes.
    Like I said in the other thread (Viktor Axelsen's thread), the article says rackets as well so we will just have to wait and see ...

    Surprising that they want to get into rackets as well. In tennis they have been sponsoring players for a long time but they don't produce rackets or did so in the past (at least not to my knowledge).

    Just read they did produce their first racket in the 70s but I don't think they are still into this.

    I remember Lendl with an Adidas racket? Reading it was at first a simple repaint of his old sponsor and later Adidas bought the mold and slightly modified the composition ... Apparently made a whole range themselves as well besides it.

    Have seen some cheap older Adidas badminton rackets on the local buy & sell websites from time to time as well

    But they seem to have tennis rackets again since a few years and originally was thought then they might try to have Djokovic play with them (I'm reading on a tennis forum) but didn't end up that way: Adidas Barricade http://www.racketsport-experte.de/te...ennisschlaeger

    My friend has seen the adidas badminton line play tested by some top players in Japan - they have rackets - shuttlecocks - specific shoes, everything dedicated to the badminton players - he told me it looks and feel just amazing -

    this is very interesting, lets see what they do, they've just posted a racket close up on their Facebook page not sure if their rackets will be anything special but we can wait and see

    i've done some digging and found these guys are distributers for europe (well, 5 countries or so)

    apparently the range will be unveiled in february at a show in Berlin (says somewhere on that site)

    Looking pretty good . Climacool: check; Formotion: check [although looks tight fitting from the looks of it]

    This is the section for clothing and footwear, rackets belong in the other thread hehe. Besides, Kwun was too late already with posting apparel in the wrong section anyway ...

    As long they can price their apparel at a reasonable cost, i think adidas can have very good sales based on their branding....their designs is always nice as usual

    so far the release design is just a small portion of it. there are quite a lot more at launch. unfortunately i don't have any information on the pricing.

    the design are very Adidas mainly because it was designed in conjunction with the main Adidas clothing designer and the badminton division. the result is a consistent look across the brand.
