 Shoe Patent

Now I had patented that design, but first thing I knew everyone started to copy it. All Manufacturers. But we did a lot with it. You had to sue them and we didn’t have that much money. We were a small company, see? Cost you and dragged on for 2 or 3 years. By the time the trial comes up the style is all gone, over. Wasn’t worth it. After a while I stopped patenting styles. It didn’t pay.   – Ben Benjamin

Crumbling Soles | Buenos Aires, And A Collection Of Old Adidas Trainers.

November 22, 2014 § 1 Comment

A cobwebbed window in a ramshackle store located in a nondescript Buenos Aires suburb. Adidas expert Gary Aspden animatedly recounts the moment a friend emailed him this photograph. “The shop window was stacked floor to ceiling with old blue Adidas boxes. Stuff from the ’78 Argentina World Cup and before. I started having palpitations.”

Read the full story by Rhik Samadder at The Guardian here.  It’s also the subject of a short documentary: Sole Searching In South America.
