Nigerian man who designed ‘danfo-themed’ sneakers gets chance to work with Adidas


A Nigerian man whose sneaker design sketch made rounds on the internet has finally gotten an opportunity to work with German multinational corporation, Adidas.

The young man on the microblogging platform, Twitter,  @Shutabug went viral after he drew a canvas and painted it in popular Lagos danfo colour.

It is safe to say that the sketch might just change his life for the better.

The last 72 hours have been crazy. My sketch was meant to be a joke, but people pushed it and now I have a chance to send a proper pitch to Adidas. I can’t thank you all enough…

This is where the hard work starts. It’s one thing to post a sketch and have it go viral and it’s another thing to actually get a shoe designed and put into production. Please understand that this might fall through and be nothing more than a viral sketch at the end of the day.

Nevertheless, I promise to give this my absolute best and learn from the experience. Thank you so much for all your help. Please keep me in your prayers.
