4. Adidas Sales Diary & Alerts
Now we’ve established that there is a 15% adidas discount for students, but this is for full priced items only. Did you know one of the best ways to save is when there is a big adidas sale on.
We keep our squirrel eyes open so any big sales will be in our fabulous savings section. Take a look and see how much you can save.
The biggest sales happen around the same time each year. Check the dates below as if one if coming up it might be best to hold on.
Adidas Black Friday & Cyber Monday
Adidas go big on Black Friday and Cyber Monday and usually release a voucher code to get 30% off everything. This is double the normal student discount so is really worth waiting for.
Boxing Day & January Sales
There are some big sales on around Christmas. Usually they start a couple of days before the 25th, then on Boxing Day there are further reductions and even bigger ones nearer New Year and January.
We recommend that if there is something you want then get it as soon as it’s in the sale as it might sell out.
Spring Mid-season & Easter Sales
Around mid March adidas have a mid-season sale and also something for Easter too.
We’ve found that they have a good 50% sale on selected items, and then add additional discounts of 20% on sale items so you can get up to 70% off. This is one of THE best times for students to bag a bargain.
Around the beginning to mid June adidas has a big summer sale.
There are some big reductions and they include a lot of stock so we like this a lot.
They also at some point introduce an extra 20% off promo code which is a great way for students to save.
We also like that they have good search filters to make finding a bargain easy. Sort by discount amount, trainers, clothing and sizes too.
5. Store Overview & Buyers Guide
Multinational sports giant Adidas is the largest sportswear manufacturer in Europe and the second largest in the world.
Headquartered in Herzogenaurach, Germany, the brand manufacture, market and sell a vast range of sports clothing, footwear and equipment. The Adidas Group owns a good chunk of household sportswear and activewear brands, including Reebok, Taylormade and Runtastic.
The main focus of Adidas was, for many years, football shoes, clothing and equipment, and the company still own part of the Bayern Munich Football Club in Germany.
The company remains a major supplier of football kits and shirts for various league and international clubs, as well as referee kits through many countries and territories. Adidas have been at the forefront of producing football boots for a variety of surface types and competitions and in 1979 released the innovative Copa Mundial moulded boots for matches held on firm dry pitches – which went on to become the best-selling football boot of all time! FIFA have commissioned specially designed footballs for its World Cup tournaments, and Adidas is now an official sponsor of the UEFA Champions League.
Football aside, Adidas also offer specialist attire and equipment tailored for basketball, cricket, golf, gymnastics, lacrosse, running, skateboarding, tennis and kabbadi (a non-Olympic contact team sport that’s popular in Asia).
There’s also fashion and activewear collections including numerous collaborations with designers and style-conscious celebrities, including Stella McCartney, Rita Ora, Jeremy Scott, Kanye West, Stan Smith and Pharrell Williams. These limited-edition collections often sell out quickly and are usually only available through Adidas retail outlets and online.
As well as clothing and sporting equipment, Adidas are well-known for their accessories. These include the currently very popular slider sandals, known as Adilette, which were first designed by the brand over 50 years ago! There’s even a massage-version of the sandals called Santiossage, with small plastic nubs built into the sole for a foot massage as the wearer walks. Other such accessories produced by Adidas include the miCoach fitness app and tracker, a range of shower gels and body lotions, watches, eyewear, sunglasses, bags and socks.
Adidas is in competition with essentially every other major sporting manufacturer but selling through its own website and retail outlets as well as through other distributors gives it wide appeal. The brand also invests heavily in sponsorship deals in sports teams, individual athletes and competitions; spanning football, rugby union, tennis, basketball, hockey, ice hockey and cricket, all across the world.
You probably own an Adidas item and even if you’re not a sports or fitness fan, you probably should, as the brand is synonymous with quality and style.

History of the Company
Founded in 1924 by Adolf Dassler following his return from the first World War, Adolf made sports shoes in his mother’s laundry room in his spare time and quickly recruited his brother Rudolf to the business.
Originally named The Dassler Brothers Shoe Factory, the pair worked to develop spiked running shoes for athletic events and was the first business to develop pairs with canvas and rubber spikes instead of metal. In 1936, the brothers persuaded US sprinter Jesse Owens to wear a pair of their hand-made spiked shoes at the Olympics that summer; and he won four gold medals! The business’ reputation was elevated and by 1939, the brothers were selling 200,000 pairs of shoes every year.
In 1947, the relationship between the brothers broke down completely and they split their business efforts; with Rudolph forming the brand that’s now Puma, and Adolf Adidas.
The brands were fiercely competitive over the next few years and several athletes swayed back and forth between their endorsements and sponsorship deals.
The three-stripe logo that’s made Adidas into a household brand today wasn’t actually acquired by the company until 1952, when it purchased it from Finnish footwear brand Karhu Sports… and paid 1600 Euros and two bottles of whiskey for it! What a deal. Student Discount Squirrel approves.
Adidas’ main competitor now is Nike, but it remains to grow from strength to strength and is an extremely well-respected brand throughout the world for both sports and leisure wear.
