Designer 2: "No way. They wouldn't wear Zubaz shorts."

It is ALWAYS a great day to be a Spartan!!!!
The pants= LULZ
These would be a giant hit with the Walverine crowd though.
Seriously, is Adidas just playing a joke now? Come on.
I have the feeling that if I went up to an Adidas exec and said I liked it, he would look at me confused and ask "seriously?"

I prefer "Shamrock Shake Green"
I'm not sure if the guys in the pictures are trying to look intimidating, or have the look on their faces because they're angry they have to wear those abominations?
Adidas, you are better than this.
I must be crazy to be in a loony bin like this.
Don't they already have a highlighter-Yellow look, head to toe? Or at least jersey to toe? And they've continued to wear the same socks for subsequent games.
My Blood Runs Green.....
THAT would explain a Great Many Things!
Uh, no, they're not
Photo on strike.
We want our damn design back!
The RCMB...is one of the most awful, alarming, inappropriate, disgusting, and offensive msg boards in the history of the internet.
The pants look like swimming trunks.
I don't always advertise for adidas but when I do it's because of their own epic fail.
Ya... no, no I don't think they are because they've been spending the last several years topping themselves in the "turrible" department.
Every single product rollout has been worse than the last.
Is anyone in this thread in advertising or marketing? I'm wondering if someone can provide some insight into Addidas' strategy with these. Obviously they figure they can't take on Nike straight up, so the strategy is to differentiate themselves and get people talking. On that account they're succeeding. However, does this actually translate to increased sales?? Even the Walmartiest Walmart Wolverines aren't going to buy this crap....are they?

Per Sports Business Daily... http://www.sportsbusinessdaily.com/Daily/Morning-Buzz/2013/02/27/adidas.aspx
"Officials at Michigan and N.C. State, two other adidas schools in position to make the NCAA tournament, said they will not wear short-sleeve jerseys, while Indiana said it has not heard from adidas on any special jerseys. Three women's basketball teams are also expected to sport special adidas uniforms during the postseason. "
This is the only possible explanation
I love it when theSpartan comments on Adidas and their failures
You know, Adidas, there's a reason why Zubaz went bankrupt in 1996.
Holy crap I got a gag Christmas gift of pajamas that looked like Norte Dames.
YOUR have been banned from reading and posting on the Michigan Wolverine board.
I love how the models are all trying to look hard. Those look like something a 12-year-old girl would wear to a slumber party.
