In 1985, Adidas came up with a funky idea called the Adicolor program, which allowed consumers to express their creativity by personalizing their sneakers. Adidas particularly marketed all-white sneakers in wooden boxes, which came with a set of colored acrylic paints, a wooden palette, and paintbrushes.

The second part was introduced the following year, a special Color Series, which had the famous 1980s The Muppets characters like Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy plus other familiar icons like Betty Boop, Trimmy, Tron, Mr. Happy, and Muhammad Ali.

More Adidas silhouettes received the upbeat Adicolor vibe in the coming years such as the 2010 ZX Light Run in vibrant colorways; and the 2016 Adidas Superstar in white, tonal red, and blue. Soon enough, the most-favored silhouette by Adidas is splashed with bold color palettes with the unveiling of the low-profile Stan Smith Adicolor in the Spring of 2016.
