Global – Sports brand Adidas has relaunched its Confirmed sneaker app with a greater focus on community, creativity and storytelling.
The updated app now provides users with access to new drops, alongside the background stories to its designs and collaborative partnerships. Providing specialised sneaker content and sneak peeks into upcoming shoes, Confirmed lets Adidas fans feel part of the brand’s creator community.
‘Whether it’s working with outside partners or coming together internally to produce innovative products, at the heart of Adidas is a deeply collaborative spirit,’ explains Ebru Ercon, design director for Adidas’ statement department. ‘This collaborative ethos extends to Confirmed and we’re incredibly excited that the platform will allow us to showcase our most forward-thinking products that we’ve brought to life with our partners.’
By building this form of microcommunity within the Adidas eco-system, the company is positioning itself as more of a peer and curator than a retail brand. Indeed, consumers are increasingly seeking conversational interactions with the brands they love; in Feedback Frontiers we explore the two-way potential of these relationships.
