    Anyone know anything about how they compare to eachother. Has adidas gotten their sizes right or are they still huge?

    I'm 5'6'' but usually wear 17-171/2 shirt.

    Adidas typically run about a size larger than Nike. So if you're a large in Nike shirts, you should go with a medium in Adidas.

    Hope that helps.
    Thanks,

    It's always best to try something on before you buy. I think Addidas runs about one size small. All my Addidas shirts are XL. My Nike shirts are L but you should try it on before you buy.

    I've actually found Adidas to run a little large.

    Yes, I read earlier threads, that's why it would be nice to understand what sizes are the shirts in the photos.

    I just bought couple Adidas Summer Response Court Crew shirts and compare to the Nike Dri-Fit shirts (Large vs. Large), the Adidas shirts do indeed run a little larger with a looser fit. In my opinion, I would not say they are a full size larger, probably half size larger. They are not so dispropionately large that I would go out of my way to return and exchange for Mediums.

    I guess it depends on whether you like a tighter fit or not. I kind of like a little looser fit with my T-shirts (no tight six-pack to show for it... :D ) so this is fine for me. Hope this helps.

    Sorry forgot to mention in the previous post, the Nike and Adidas shorts are the same size in my opinion (Again, Large vs. Large).

    Adidas shirts always run one size too big. I wear a S or M in every other brand, but for some reason, I have to wear a Boys XL usually in Adidas. I'm 29 years old, 5ft6 & definately not 'small' on top either.
