ADIDAS MOVES INTO SOHO: Adidas is readying its third Originals store, which will open in SoHo at the end of this month, an Adidas spokesman said Thursday. The company has a New York showroom in that neighborhood on Broadway and is moving into the 3,800-square-foot space previously occupied by Adhoc at 136 Wooster Street, not far from Stussy. Originals is a combination of replica products and updated versions of classic apparel, footwear and accessories. Last year, Adidas opened Originals stores in Berlin and Tokyo. To celebrate its new digs, Adidas is trying to recruit some Adidas-sponsored tennis players for the opening night bash, which will take place during the U.S. Open.
