adidas look designs

In the current Adidas war on stripes, a Kansas shoe company were fined by a federal jury for trademark violation of the adidas three-stripe design. Adidas AG earlier this week won a $305 million award from a federal jury in Oregon for trademark violation of its three-stripe design by the company that operates the Payless and Stride Rite shoe-store chains. The verdict is unusually high for a trademark case, lawyers say.

"It is very satisfying for the three stripes to be recognized as a strong trademark after the court heard detailed evidence over more than three weeks," an Adidas spokeswoman said in an email. The German company is the world's second-largest sporting-goods maker by sales after Nike Inc.

Northampton Town unveiled their new away kit for the 2008/2009 season, modelled by Danny Jackman

Northampton Town unveiled their new away kit for the 2008/2009 season, modelled by Danny Jackman. The kit, which sees the Cobblers revert back to black for a change kit after the popularity of the 2005/2006 away strip, is once again manufactured by Vandanel.

Northampton Town was founded in 1897 after meetings between the town’s schoolteachers and local solicitor A.J. Darnell. At the time schoolboy football was strong in the county due in part to the enthusiasm of the local teachers. They were however dissatisfied with the current arrangement of arranged friendlies between schools preferring to teach the boys through practical examples and they felt this could be done by forming a town team.

At the same time A.J. Darnell travelled to Leicester with the local Rugby team and whilst there witnessed an exhibition football match between Leicester Fosse and Notts County. This gave him the desire to start his own club in Northampton.
