Fashion history lesson for you now – did you know that Adidas and Puma were formed by two brothers as a result of an intense rivalry? This animated video by Great Big Story breaks down the tale of how Rudolf “Rudi” and Adolf “Adi” Dassler (can you see where this is going) were both partners in the same family shoe factory, before a rivalry between them grew during the Second World War that prompted them to form two separate sportswear companies. It’s a fascinating story of sibling rivalry, and incredible that such a simple family feud could spawn two of the biggest sportswear manufacturers on the planet.
