Ex-Nike Designers Officially Join Adidas

Denis Dekovic, Marc Dolce, and Mark Milner

After Nike settled its lawsuit with three of its key designers last summer, who jumped ship for Adidas, the trio has officially joined the Three Stripes.

Designers Denis Dekovic, Marc Dolce, and Mark Milner have taken up senior design leadership positions at the sportswear brand... and expressed their happiness recently on Instagram.

Dolce posted a photo of their badges together on Wednesday (March 30).

• We are inspired, honored and excited to be a part of the amazing adidas FAMILY. During the past year, we've witnessed an incredible transformation which made adidas the brand of choice for today's youth. This transformation was enabled by: /// New partnerships and collaborations with creators like Kanye West and Pharrell Williams. /// Industry defining performance innovation products that captured the hearts and minds of the modern youth. /// Cultural shift to being an open source brand, which through the creation filter of Futurecraft enabled great concepts to allow everyone to take a sneak peak into the future. We've all seen it -- the future is bright! The amazing teams in Herzo, Portland and all across the organization have played pivotal roles in this transformation. You've earned the tremendous respect and admiration for the work that you're doing. The success that you've generated creates the unprecedented opportunity to truly become the world's BEST sport company. This opportunity demands that we do our best work ahead --- and together, we will!
