interesting to see the Adidas Puma connection I didn’t realise, and of course you cant beat a bit of retro red, gold and green on your clothing

The first film focuses on Adi Dassler and there is a very short clip of Bob Marley, a fitting tribute to the singer who was well-known for loving football and wearing Adidas. The campaign is the first by Adidas promoting its Originals lifestyle range, which includes retro products similar to that worn by Marley, either casually or when playing football. He is recognised with the Marley Jacket and the Pro Model Tuff Gong Adidas shoes, but there is also the Pro Model Kingston (shoes) and the Kingston zip jacket.

Sportwear giant, Puma’s association with Jamaica is well known through its sponsorship of national athletics, and a product range that now stretches to fragrance. Adidas and Puma, two of the world’s largest sportswear brands, were founded by German brothers Adi and Rudi Dassler respectively.
