September saw a global announcement of the adidas Athletics category and on 14 September the reveal of the hoodie with hundreds of key global and local athletes posting images on their social media platforms donning the Z.N.E hoodie. As the essence of the athletics category and range of apparel is a “pitch/field-to-street” style, one of the tactics to really have an impactful reveal was having Man United and the All Blacks, and on a local level Orlando Pirates and Ajax all wearing the hoodies as they walked on to the field for their respective games which took place around 14 September.

With reveals of this nature and adidas athletes and influencers across the globe (including SA) all posting images of themselves “In the Zone” wearing the Z.N.E hoodie, it quickly became a very desirable item.

We chat to Brett to find out more.

Tune into Biz Takeouts every Thursday from 9am-10am live from the 2oceansVibe Radio studio in Cape Town as we discuss the topics that matter in Marketing & Media.
