Create Your Own Customized Product
Find Your Product
You can find your product by searching either by Men's, Women's, or Youth sizes or by gender and sport (Football, Basketball, Running, etc) on the upper left of the website. When you click on one of the options you will be led to a category landing page where you can refine your product selection further, or you will be taken straight to a product listing page that will give you an overview of the products offered in that category.
Find Product Details
Find Product Details Before You Configure You can find more details about your product (technologies, features, benefits, available sizes, etc) on the product details page which can be reached by clicking a specific product on a product listing page or successful search results listing. The product details page will not only give you product information but will also give you some inspirations that you can choose from to start your configuration.
Find Customization Details for Already Saved Products If you have already saved a product and you would like to review a product’s customization details, please sign in and click on the "saved products" tab on your Account page. Here you will find all your saved products. To review any one of their custom elements, click on "view summary" for the product you are interested in.
Using the Summary Page The summary page shows the complete list of the customizations you’ve selected for your product, including personalization and any custom artwork/graphics. You will also be able to review the Recommended Retail Price (RRP) in the lower right-hand corner of the page. Take the time to ensure the customization is correct so you order exactly what your team needs. If you want to make a change to the product, you can click the “edit” link beneath the product name.
This will take you back to the configurator to make adjustments to that specific product. If an order containing this product has already been sent by your preferred retailer for production, any edits you make to the design will not be reflected in that order’s final product.
The summary page also lets you easily share your saved product via email, Facebook, or blog post. Adding the saved product is just as easy. Just click the “add to order” button beneath the RRP to activate an overlay which will prompt you for the order you would like to add the product to, or if you want to begin a new order, you can enter a new order name to create one.
Configure Your Product
After you have found the product that you would like to customize, select "customize" and you will be taken to the product configurator. On the right-hand side of the configurator site you will find options that allow you to change the colours and features of the product. On the left-hand side of the configurator you will see the product image, which will change angles according to the product options that you select on the right-hand side.
In order to change colors, features, or personalization options, select from one of the options on the upper right or click directly on the product. If you’re customizing a match kit, you will be able to select the part of the kit to design first. Choose from the image of the player on the left-hand side.
Configurator Commands The configurator page allows you to do the following:
Save to Account – Clicking “save & share” in the bottom right of the configurator opens an overlay that will display a summary of your product and allows you to save your design and share it with others. If you choose to save your design you will be prompted to name your creation (this will appear if you’ve signed into your account). You will be taken to the login/ registration page. After logging in or registering, you will be brought back to the configurator and an overlay will be displayed asking you to provide a name for the design (if you are not signed in). Your mi adidas account also allows you to save multiple versions of the same product. Every time you open the Save & Share window, another version of your design is temporarily saved. This is helpful when you want to try multiple designs and share the options with your team.
Share – sharing your design is easy: send it by email, post it on Facebook or a blog, or even print out your creation to pass around.
Start Over – click on this button if you would like to start configuration of the same product from the beginning. You will see an overlay that will pop up where you can choose between the following options: "Start with the original design": Leads you to the beginning of the customization by using the same inspiration that you started with. "Start with a blank product": Leads you to the beginning of the customization with a completely blank product (the usual color is white). “Change the current compliance setting”: Leads you to the compliancy options – choose the setting that’s appropriate to the requirements of your organisation or league. "Cancel": if you wish to continue with the current configuration.

Adding Graphics Certain uniforms and products allow you to add your own custom graphic for an additional cost. To find out if you can add a graphic to a uniform, click on “personalize” in the top right-hand menu of a mi adidas product. One of the options will be “graphics” if the product permits it. Graphic Tees always have this option available.
Upon clicking the “add a graphic” link, a pop-up window will show you the steps involved.
1. Select a graphic
2. Choose a graphic location
3. Select a graphic size
4. Choose application type
You have three options when adding a graphic to your team’s outfit: upload a graphic from your computer, choose a graphic from the adidas image library, or picking an image you’ve previously uploaded to your account.
Uploading an Image Clicking on the first option “upload a graphic from your computer” will immediately open a dialog box asking for you to locate the file on your system. To view the image on your uniform, you’ll need to choose either a .jpg or .png file no larger than 20 MB and then agree to the adidas Terms & Conditions to initiate the upload process. The .jpg or .png allows you to see how your image will appear in the predefined sizes, placements, and application types on the uniform. These options will vary by product, and when it comes time to produce your uniform, you will need to provide your preferred retailer(s) with a vectorized PDF (.pdf) or Adobe Illustrator file (.ai) of your artwork/graphic (see Upload Images).
Your uploaded graphics will also be accessible for other products in your account image library.
Note: all uploaded graphics must be approved by adidas before your order will be accepted.
Choosing a Graphic from the adidas Image Library There are dozens of unique graphics available for use in the adidas image library. Selecting this option from the “graphics” pop-up window take you to a conveniently categorized image repository. Browse through graphics categories, such as: crests, mascots, clubs, etc. until you found the perfect visual to represent your team. Click on the image you want, then click on “use this one” to add the graphic to your uniform. You’ll be able to choose the available size and placement options, as well as the application type.
Retrieving a Saved Image Make sure you’re signed into your mi adidas account. You can do this through “my graphics” option in the “add a graphic” pop-up window which will take you to a streamlined sign-in process. Once signed-in, you will be able to see your previously uploaded imagery. Click on the image you want, then click on “use this one” to add the graphic to your uniform.
Graphics Approval If you added a custom graphic to your uniform, adidas will need to approve the image before your order can be submitted. Once approved, you will need to provide your preferred retailer(s) with a vectorized PDF (.pdf) or Adobe Illustrator file (.ai) of your graphic. This is necessary to get the best possible print quality on your customized products (see Upload Images).
League Rules and Guidelines
NCAA - National Collegiate Athletic Association
NFHS - National Federation of State High School Associations
FIVB - Fédération Internationale de Volleyball
If you live in the United States of America, NCAA / NFHS compliancy of your team uniform will (most likely) be important for you. For all categories that mi adidas covers, we are offering products that are compliant to NCAA, NFHS, and/or FIVB equipment rules.
Choose the appropriate compliancy option when prompted before you begin customizing the rest of your features.
The NCAA / NFHS guidelines differ from one category to another but generally the rules incorporate:
- Branding is only allowed in certain areas of the uniform
- Logos are only allowed once on each piece of clothing
- The 3-Stripes are not or only partially allowed
- Color blocking options need to follow certain guidelines
Numbers on the back and front need to be in specific sizes or have a minimum height and range adidas is doing its best to make products that are NCAA and or NFHS compliant, however it will be your responsibility to make sure that the guidelines are met. adidas does not accept claims with regards to non-compliant color blocking options or features.
To review the exact regulations of the NCAA/ NFHS/ FIVB please visit their websites:
