Should adidas Release an RG3 Training Shoe?

April 7th, 2014 by | 2 comments

adidas rg 3 new logo Should adidas Release an RG3 Training Shoe?

What’s next from adidas and Robert Griffin III? Whatever it is, it will feature this newly revealed logo for RG3, which looks sort of Superman-like if you ask us. Obviously a football athlete’s on-field shoes can’t translate to casual wear in the same way a basketball player’s might, so perhaps it’s time that adidas give Griffin a little bit more shine and whip up a trainer model for the Washington Redksins quarterback. Let us know if you’d like to see that down in the comments after you see the full shot of the new logo and keep it locked with Sneaker News for updates.

adidas rgiii football adidas Football and RGIII Blow It Up

RGIII isn’t worried about that knee. In fact, he’s ready to forget about it. He’s ready to forget about everything that happened last season. This spot captures that attitude, as Robert Griffin III narrates us through his approach of blowing it all up and starting from square one (An approach that results in a very Bane-like literal explosion of the gridiron in this clip). All that matters now is what’s ahead of the Washington Redskins quarterback. Continue reading to get a look at the spot from adidas Football and watch for RGIII to make his return on Monday Night Football next week.

The recently concluded National Football League season was one of the most exciting in recent memory, and not just because of Nike’s new NFL gear.  2012 saw the first signs of a seismic shift in the gridiron game, as dynamic new field generals like Washington’s Robert Griffin III find new wrinkles in the quarterback position.  Celebrating RG3 and rival DeMarco Murray’s shared February 12th birthday, adidas Football issued the adidas CrazyQuick Mid and adiZero 5-Star 2.0 (respectively) in confetti-accented white colorways whose overall composition might remind you a tiny bit of the ‘Fruity Pebbles’ Zoom LeBron IVs.  These are a beast of a different breed, though, featuring new QUIKFRAME construction and a combination of SprintStuds and QuickStuds for superior footing.  Click through to see both, let us know what you think and stick with Sneaker News for updates.

adidas Athlete Robert Griffin III Covers Up Nike Logos During Warm-Ups

September 17th, 2012 by | 9 comments

robert griffin iii jersey adidas Athlete Robert Griffin III Covers Up Nike Logos During Warm Ups

It was considered a major, game-changing achievement for Nike when the Oregon-born brand won the rights to outfit all 1,696 rostered players in the NFL (53-man roster x 32 NFL teams = 1,696, right?). However, some resistance from it’s primary competitor and perennial second-place finisher adidas is still flickering a dim yet irritating light. Washington Redskins rookie QB Robert Griffin III and marquee adidas NFL and Training athlete is making plenty of noise in just the two weeks he’s been in the league, and we’re not just pointing out his impressive 110+ QB Rating; as we just mentioned, RGIII is an adidas athlete and made his devotion known in Week 1 by taking a Sharpie marker to his pre-game warm-up gear in an attempt to cover up the Swoosh logo. With Nike being the official outfitter of the NFL, tampering with the logo is potentially a punishable act, and without surprise RGIII coerced a statement from NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy. His response to the news: “It won’t happen again”.

Only it did. Yesterday, before the Redskins took on the St. Louis Rams, RGIII did his pre-game routine wearing a grey t-shirt above his Nike-branded warm-up gear, completely shrouding any Swoosh logos on his body. Definitely a step up from graffiti-ing via permanent marker, but the effect – and response – was the same; news media definitely took notice and some sort of reaction from the NFL brass is likely to follow, possibly in the form of a dollar penalty. If so, don’t be surprised if adidas picks up that tab, much like Nike did when the NBA fined Michael Jordan for wearing his defiant Air Jordan 1s that didn’t comply with league policy. This fiasco also reminds us of another branding war that involved Nike, Reebok, and the 1992 Olympics; the Olympic warm-up apparel was issued by Reebok, but during the Gold Medal ceremony, Michael Jordan and a few Nike athletes ‘covered up’ the Reebok logo with the American flag.

Bringing the focus back to Robert Griffin III; his actions clearly display his fidelity to his significant other, but are his attempts to display brand loyalty not only futile, but foolish? For roughly thirty minutes that follow the warm-up sessions, the entire nation sees RGIII in his official NFL uniforms with the Swoosh logos on the shoulders and the snazzy Flywire collar below his neck anyway, so his actions clearly don’t send the message as loudly as he intends to (or does it?). Things will definitely get more interesting considering RGIII deliberately ignored the NFL’s warnings and continued his antics for the second week in a row, but we’d like to see things get a bit more hot if Griffin decides to take his mission to his actual on-field jersey. Your thoughts on RGIII making this type of noise off the field? Do you think he should take a page of out MJ’s book and go completely rogue with his on-field uniforms, or will swift action by the NFL cause the adidas athlete to play ‘by the rules’?

While the sneaker is definitely designed to be a beast on the hardwood, you don’t have to be a basketball player to appreciate the adidas adiZero Crazy Light 2. Just ask the likes of Von Miller, Robert Griffin III and Eric Berry who all got the chance to crank out a custom pair via the miadidas process over the summer. Among the three Von Miller seemed to really flex the custom options at his disposal, dropping in his “Eat Greedy” slogan on the back end of the sneaker. Click through for a look at Von’s pair of the 9.5 oz adidas adiZero Crazy Light 2 as well as a video spot featuring all three designs and let us know if you think you can do better in the comments below.
