Adidas and the LEGO Group have announced a multi-year partnership. The partnership will see new co-created products aimed at both adults and children with an interest in sport.
Like the bricks that serve as this partnership’s inspiration, the collaboration fuses two of the world's most recognised and iconic brands and will offer a diverse portfolio of footwear, apparel and hardware.
Fans could already explore the creative ambition of the collaboration with the limited release of the Adidas Originals ZX 8000 LEGO® sneaker in September.
“It’s our mission to inspire and develop the builders of tomorrow and help children be creative and learn the skills they need to thrive," said Julia Goldin, Chief Marketing Officer at the LEGO Group.
“Great play experiences are a fun way to learn and build creative confidence, and so is sport,” Goldin added.
Aimee Arana, SVP General Manager, Global Training at Adidas said “Our goal is to use the power of sport to change lives, grounded in creativity as the vehicle to inspire people of all ages and backgrounds. An innovative partner like the LEGO Group allows us to together imagine up new concepts and products that will spark creativity in an inclusive way, particularly helping the development of younger generations.”
Initial partnership discussions started in 2017, and in 2018 the LEGO Group welcomed the Adidas team to LEGO House in Denmark to let creativity run wild and determine how best to foster a true fusion of the two brands.
That meeting kicked-off what promises to be a dynamic and fastpaced collaboration, with the first products scheduled to drop before the end of 2020.
Products for various sports and an active lifestyle will launch in December and throughout 2021, aimed at both kids and adults.
We believe that information should be free and will therefore never put up a paywall.
