Flew Off The Shelves

FW18 Falcon was one of the most successful campaigns for Adidas. The initial release was sold out within 24 hours in the US and, within 48 hours in Western Europe. It had a total of 3 restocks. For the 3rd time ever, its women's footwear outsold men's footware on Adidas.com, thanks to the FW18 Falcon.

Connecting With The Female Sneakerhead

The FW18 Falcon Campaign successfully reached a generation of young women energized by rebellion, fun, and a desire to shape their own world. This was achieved through multiple touchpoints: Adidas.com, social media, the Adidas mobile app, and CRM.

Visually Engaging & Mobile First

The CLP for both Tease and Launch phase embraced uniques like the slider and selector carousels. Modules were made flexible and easy to navigate especially on mobile devices. As a result, FW18 Falcon CLP yielded 39% more engaging compared to campaign average and attracted more than 84% of CLP traffic from mobile.

The Need For Another Falcon Campaign

With the positive results from FW18 Campaign Season, Adidas wanted us to continue another campaign for Falcon, which was also a successful release.
