Description

We created a special pair of shoes called ‘Odds’ that had a pair of 2 lefts or 2 rights that para-athletes could choose from.

Execution

We created a special pair of shoes called ‘Odds’ that had a pair of 2 lefts or 2 rights that para-athletes could choose from. So instead of giving them one side of the shoe that’s useless, the unique shoe box had another side of the shoe they really need. Odds could’ve also been a pack of 1 shoe priced at 50% less but the idea was to give them one more and not remind them that they have one less. TV/ Digital/ Activation/ Radio/ Print/ outdoor was used to promote the campaign

Outcome

Odds became the most talked about campaign during the Paralympic

People started participating in the discussion about the need to even out the odds. Besides bloggers, digital communities and media, even sports stars and celebrities took part in the conversation. With over 5 million views in a week. 1.5 millions likes. Generating PR worth 9.5 million dollars for free. Creating over 27 million media impressions globally. Website saw a 24% jump, Adidas plans to globally introduce odds as a variant for all their products.
