Named after its founder, Adidas AG is a multinational corporation founded and headquartered in Herzogenaurach, Germany. The company designs and manufactures shoes, clothing, and accessories.

Started in 2000, MiAdidas was an online customization platform that allowed customers to create personalized colorways of best-selling Adidas shoes like the Superstar, Stan Smith, and Ultra Boost.

MiAdidas allowed customers to choose from a range of shoe styles, colors, and materials. They could also personalize their shoes by selecting different laces, outsoles, and accents. After designing their shoes, customers could order online, and Adidas would then manufacture the shoes according to their specifications.

In 2019, Adidas decided to shut down MiAdidas. The company no longer offers a service allowing customers to design and customize their Adidas shoes.

“We’ve made the strategic decision to close our custom footwear business, MiAdidas. We believe that the future of customization lies in co-creation, and we’re working diligently to offer a new experience for the consumer who wants to join in the creation of our products at a deeper level. Thank you for being a fan of MiAdidas, and we can promise an even better digital experience in the future,” the company said in a statement about the shutdown of its online customization service MiAdidas.

While MiAdidas is no longer available, several other companies offer similar mass customization programs for sneakers. Some well-known alternatives include Nike by You, Converse by You, and Vans Customs.

These programs empower customers to design and create unique sneakers by choosing from various styles, colors, and materials.

Olivia Culpo Pairs Trendy Nylora Unitard With Adidas Originals Pro Model Sneakers

It’s remarkable to see that the athleisure trend is still going strong! Bodysuits and biker shorts remain prominent in the fashion world, and unitards have become a recent sensation among celebrities and fashion influencers.

In September 2021, Kendall Jenner was spotted wearing a sleek unitard while attending her Pilates class alongside Hailey Bieber.

Adding to the unitard frenzy, Olivia Culpo was photographed wearing a similar chic ensemble as she exited her Pilates class in West Hollywood.

The then-29-year-old beauty queen displayed the fruits of her labor in a black Morton suit from the activewear label Nylora.

Founded in 2018 by designer Carolyn Jang, a graduate of the Parsons School of Design in New York, the brand is known for its attention to detail. Nick Jonas’ ex-girlfriend wore it over a white “Rubio” ribbed tank top.

Keeping a sporty look, the Miss Universe 2012 winner hid her brown tresses underneath a white Vetements baseball cap.

She pulled her hair back into a low bun with a scrunchie and left a few loose tendrils to frame her minimally made-up face.

They also have a lightly padded tongue and collar, soft mesh lining, padded footbed, and a herringbone traction rubber outsole.
