Among the highly followed, young female influencers, model Kendall Jenner stood out as one who hadn’t signed on with an athletic brand. Her sister, Kyle, has a deal with Puma, Gigi Hadid is with Reebok and earlier this year, Nike announced Bella Hadid as a brand ambassador.
Wearing an Adidas Originals tracksuit and a pair of Gazelle sneakers, Jenner ended her athletic brand independence today when she announced on social media she is now an Adidas brand ambassador.
There hasn’t been an official announcement from Adidas, though it looks like Jenner was on one of the brand’s campuses so perhaps a photo shoot is forthcoming. Jenner hinted at the move a couple of weeks ago when she posted an image of herself as a child wearing an Adidas Trefoil t-shirt.
Model Karlie Kloss, who is also an Adidas brand ambassador, shouted out Kendall on Twitter, writing “Welcome to the fam.”
