    Adidas should make sneakers in the US? Why? It is a German company. Does Nike make sneakers in Germany? No they don't. Sneakers are expensive enough. Be fair, you can't just call one shoe company out like that and not demand the same thing from other companies. And it's not just "African Americans" that made Adidas as cool as they are today. Messi, Stan Smith, Jeremy Scott, Yohji Yamamoto, Alexander Wang, Pogba etc. all do and did great for the Brand too.

    Why does adidas have to be doing things specifically for the black community? They're doing things for the sneaker community. Joe just asked what he throught about them and he says for African American people which had nothing to with anything. And adidas is a German company. More people by adidas in Europe then anywhere else.

    Oh and also wtf is "if it's American sold why can't it be American made?" 🙄 you're losing me usher,there's us product being sold all over the world ,does it mean every country needs to make it "xyz made"? 🤦🏻‍♂️adidas is a German brand. Puma as well. Nike is American. Always been,always will be. But more importantly,who cares?

    Jeez why does race need to be brought into every single fucking topic... "what is adidas doing for the aa culture?"...😒 not everything is going to be a cultural and a racial thing,we're all PEOPLE and that's all that matters. At least that's how I see it. No race,religion,sexual preference etc makes me treat anyone any differently. You're either a good or a bad person to me,PERIOD.

    I understand the fact that it would be hard for another country to bring their product into America and let it be American made but we do need jobs here and I think what he's saying is that the more products made and bought in America the more success poor Americans get by being able to find more work. It's not that we as Americans don't like having an agreement with another country to purchase their product but that the more things that can be American made (cars for instance) the better job coverage and less lay offs and unemployment we have.

    People are tripping because he said he wanted shoes produced in the U.S. Lets be real here you should want any big name brand that has good sales to produce stuff in your country. regardless of where you are from.... thats just being smart... Im an American and wish we produced everything we sale... if i was Chinese id still want to produce everything they sale.

    I'm at a very fortunate part of my life where I can save some money and my parents wouldn't mind lending me some money for sneakers, I get a new pair about every month and would probably have more If i begged but I don't like being like that towards my parents, so I'm very grateful for that 🙂 have a nice day
