Adidas, can you help my one footed friend?

Adidas: Great for everyone! Including one-footed people


Hello people of Adidas!

I was talking to a friend of mine this weekend about trainers, and naturally, the Adidas brand came up! He had an accident about two years ago when a fridge fell on his foot, not only did it really really hurt, but after a week of treatment, he sadly lost the foot. On the plus side, almost the entire contents of the fridge was redeemable - save for a few eggs and a yoghurt.

So, he finds that when he buys new trainers, he has to always buy a pair, even though he only actually needs the left one. Shops are rarely sympathetic when he hobbles to the counter to pay, and on only two occasions has he managed to get a discount (once was in Spain).

So I've come up with an idea, perhaps Adidas could run a scheme to put our one footed friends in touch with each other, my friend has eleven right-foot trainers (size 9) that he doesn't require, he's tried eBay to sell them but doesn't get a great deal of joy. I've even come up with a name, we could call it the "Adidas Best Foot Forward" scheme!! (catchy huh!)

Anyhow, hope you like my idea, I'd recommend my friend to be an ambassador for the scheme but to fair, he's not the most photogenic of people, in fact babies tend to cry when they see him, and sometimes their mothers, but it's personality that counts and I can certain say that Leftfoot Lennie is a top guy!

Hope all is brilliant! Keep up the great work!!

Vince.

What about a similar scheme for people with two left feet?

Hummm, that could be good. I'm guessing I'd have to write to Bruce Forsyth to find that out. It's always been my dream to talk to Brucie!!
