adidas has enjoyed a long and successful involvement in motorsport through the manufacture and supply of performance race boots and racewear for drivers competing at all levels. Performance race boots, like other technical footwear innovations developed by Adi Dassler, came about as a result of a direct collaboration with athletes. Adi developed the very first “fireproof” race boot in 1974 and thereafter the highly successful Monza race boot  became the choice of champions including Mario Andretti, Walter Röhrl, Nigel Mansell, Nelson Piquet and Ayrton Senna. adidas continues to work in cooperation with some of the world’s leading drivers to provide them with high quality technically advanced functional race-wear and footwear that exceeds FIA/SFI homologation requirements while incorporating cutting edge design.
