As one of the biggest Adidas team dealers in the country, Stripe 3 Adidas has been outfitting sports teams from Downtown College Park for over 30 years. In 1984, owners Anna and Kevin Lee knew that they wanted to focus on one brand, and they wanted to make it affordable so that every kid could have a chance to play. Since then, this family business has been providing the latest Adidas styles in basketball, soccer, running, rowing, and others, with over 200 models of shoes—at outlet prices. They have partnered with local recreational teams in Prince George’s County and Washington DC, grassroots AAU programs, and Division 1 Universities.
Contrary to other major retail brands, Adidas is taking measures to ensure the sustainability of its brand. Owner Anna is particularly passionate about the Parley collection, which features an entire line of sportswear made from recycled plastic, including shoes and jerseys. By buying a pair of shoes from the Parley collection right now, customers can save 11 plastic bottles from polluting the ocean, and contribute to a more sustainable future. Impressively, the entire brand is committed to shifting to completely recycled polyester by 2024.
No matter what you or your kids’ desired sport may be, Stripe 3’s mission is for everyone to be able to play. With many pieces discounted by 30%-50%, they pride themselves on being able to provide styles for any budget. They also provide custom printing for jerseys and tennis racket stringing; so there’s no reason to travel beyond 7415 Baltimore Avenue to meet your sports shopping needs.
