 “Our production landscape is 90 per cent Asia-based. I do not believe, and it’s a complete illusion to believe, that manufacturing can go back to Europe in terms of volume,” Kasper Rorsted said last week adidas stan smith during his first trip to Asia after taking the helm of the German company in October.

A riposte to political rhetoric about the return of manufacturing after a decades long move to Asian outsourcing, his comments also contrast to those of his predecessor Herbert Hainer, who told the Financial Times last year production was “coming back” to Germany.

Adidas does plan to ramp up production at fully automated “speed factories” in Germany and Atlanta staffed adidas stan smith zwart by robots, and this month announced a partnership with Silicon Valley start-up Carbon to produce trainers with 3D-printed soles at faster speeds.

But Mr Rorsted said: “I don’t see full automation in the next five to 10 years,” adding that Asia’s semi-automated manufacturing is still significantly faster than any 3D printing technology. The automated plants will manufacture about 1m pairs of shoes annually — a tiny fraction of the 360m pairs the company sells globally each year.

Exclusive to JD Sports in the U.K., this striped Adidas NMD_XR1 is heading to Finish Line stateside.
The adidas stan smith zebra retailer confirmed a release for next week on its Instagram account earlier today, though specifics weren't announced. It's unclear whether or not any of the other colorways that dropped at JD will also be available at Finish Line.We'll update you as soon as more is revealed in the coming days.

Adidas made Kanye West's next sneaker official this week, confirming an April 29 release date for the "Cream White" Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 V2. In addition to announcing the shoes, the brand has posted a store finder tool listing the spots that will have them.Adidas has made a habit of posting these sort of adidas stan smith dames lists around Yeezy releases, but they aren't always totally accurate. Anyone making plans to buy the sneakers at any of the stores listed should contact them first to confirm stock. The shoes will be available directly via Adidas, through big box stores like Foot Locker, and at boutique accounts.
