About Adidas Parkas
Historically lined with fur, or at least faux fur, the parka was originally designed by the Caribou Inuit tribes to stop the harsh and icy conditions of the Arctic from cooling the body. Today the parka, sometimes referred to as an anorak, is much more of a sought-after fashion garment, rather than something that will keep you alive in freezing weather conditions.
Adidas parkas come in many different styles, shapes and sizes, with something suitable for children as well as adults. Some parkas will have pockets on the breast of the jacket, whereas others will have none at all. More often than not, a parka will have a hood, and the ability to zip up the coat at the front. Some of the coats have a military theme, in both colour and style, whereas other parkas will retain Adidas's 'street-style' appearance. Many Adidas Parkas are still designed to keep the wearer warm, with multiple linings and zips to keep out the cold.
Although the parka is sometimes called an anorak, in the strictest definitions the two garments have some considerable differences. The anorak tends to be made from waterproof materials, where the parka often isn't, and the anorak sometimes doesn't have an opening at the front, unlike the parka.
Adidas have been making clothes since 1948, when Adolf Dassler set up the company in Germany to rival his older brother who would eventually start Puma. The company produce clothing solutions for all sorts of sporting activities, including Skateboarding, gymnastics, running, football and basketball.
