    I , personally, favor one much more over the other, but I want the public's opnion, as part of a project, and will respectfully obstain from voting, to hide my favor and not to tip the restuls.

    That's good to know. Most people like one and despise the other. I'm a little in the middle. More like a supporter, but not moderate or extreme.

    Generally, I like Adidas' style more. Plus, they make sweet shoes. I buy my tennis clothes from ShopKo though. You'd be surprised...

    i like Adidas, they make nice products. But Nike is the best sports manufacturer in the world. Their clothes are so much nicer.

    "Adidas" is short for the name of the founder of the company, Adi Dassler, a German, and the company is based in Germany, so yes, it's a German company.

    Depends what you asking about. Adidas shoes are better overall than Nike particularly in terms of durability but Nilke clothing is much more stylish than Adidas.

    I don't see why it's one or another. I hate some Nike shoes and some Adidas.

    I like the Nike style, but I like shoes from Adidas much more and don't mind the style of their apparel.
    Also for some reason, I find better deals and a little more selection at the Adidas outlet stores I got to. At the Nike outlet stores, the tennis section is barely one rack for clothing and I have to dig deep just to find tennis shoes.

    Adidas.

    Nike have jumped the shark in recent years; too many spurious clothing 'innovations', way more than any of their competitors.

    And I can't forgive them for making Nadal look like the pool boy in a gay porno movie (ahem, not that I, you know...)

    I like Nike apparel styling , but Nike has gotten this weird idea in their head that Flagship shoes are meant for people with shorter toes & narrow feet - a little wide & You can't buy most top nike shoes . Barricade II fits me perfect & I also like the ADIDAS new line of apparel but voted NIKE caz I've been using their apparel for last 15+ yrs & never been dissatisfied ( a bit over-priced though ).

    Nike.
    After buying my first pair of Adidas shoes last year, I am seriously thinking about going back to my 8 years old Nike ones. And not to mention how Nike has 1000 times cuter designs.

    I had that problem with Nike. Same size and an inch difference in waist. I'm not exaggerating. It was a whole inch. I was furious.
    But I still prefer them to Adidas. Cause with Adidas I have a greater problem..they don't make tennis shoes my size.

    Haha..it's not a matter of having too big or too small feet. I'm just in the middle of 2 Adidas sizes. I wear 40.5 Nike tennis shoes (actually that is a bit big for my height :)) and the trouble with Adidas is that 40 is too small, and 40 2/3 is too big (which I figured after playing in them).

    Funny. Barricade II is probably the most narrow shoe I've ever worn, and I have narrow feet.

    I have to go with Nike. Their clothes are just SOOO much better looking. To me addidas is more towards the soccer kind of person, not trying to be stereotyping, but that is how I think of it. I just like Nikes style a lot better(I'm a basketball player, love Jordan)

    fila

    I wear fila because I am totally against both. Adidas too sporty and Nike too American, popular, expensive and basketbally. Hell even at their outlet the shoe are expensives. Fila while not always the best shoe is still a very good shoe and very stylist. Filas have a more slick image. and being that I grew up duing the 70's when fila prices were still more expensive then than they are today, their is some what of an revenge on the company being that you can get shoes and shirts, each for $25-$35, when in 1977, fila shirts were $60-$80 and shorts were $50.
