adidas calls all creators to reinvent their place in history by continuing the support of LGBT equality. This month, adidas will release four exclusive styles throughout Pride Month and continue to support the Rainbow Laces charity.
(June 2017) – Celebrating the spirit of creators, doers and people who overcome adversity, re-imagined and wrote their own stories – adidas Originals has updated the classic EQT, Superstar, with adidas Running updating the UltraBOOST and adidas Basketball updating the Crazy silhouette with a brand new tertiary palette. Taking inspiration from the evolving LGBT community – adidas looks to grow beyond the rainbow and its primary and secondary colorways with a tertiary palette that is representative of the inclusivity of the many identities that make us bold and vibrant.
In line with Pride Month, adidas will continue to support The Rainbow Laces campaign with a charitable donation. The charity commits to making sport everyone’s game by promoting equality for lesbian, gay, bi and trans fans and players in sport, while also raising awareness of the problem of homophobia, biphobia and transphobia – building support for LGBT equality in all sports, at all levels.
