Adidas Originals x Ninja unlocks an achievement for ESports

ESports are the future and everyone’s keeping up with the program, especially Adidas Originals. Just this week, they signed their first individual ESports partner: Twitch.tv’s fave streamer, Tyler Blevins a.k.a. Ninja.

Ninja made the huge announcement through a 58-seconder video. In the inspirational video, he wore a blue Adidas hoodie with “NINJA” written on the left sleeve. He narrates his journey as a gamer and how he built a career out of gaming against all odds. “No shortcuts. Only long days. Never let anyone tell you that you can’t catch your dreams,” he reminds everyone.
