Innovative materials used in phone covers for adventure-ready cases

Do life the inspired way with adidas cases

We are proud to introduce adventure-ready iPhone, Samsung & Huawei cases that have been created to keep up with your drive to thrive. Stress-tested under extreme lifestyle conditions, our range of adidas cases look good and stay tough while powering with you through all your urban adventures.

Our R&D team has worked tirelessly to source innovative materials that allowed us to craft cases that offer exceptional protection without compromising on ergonomic style. This includes thermoplastic polyurethane, silicone, hard plastic, leather, artificial leather, fabric, and aluminum.

Here’s why we chose these materials. 

Thermoplastic Polyurethane

Thermoplastic Polyurethane (TPU) walks the fine line between plastic and silicone, combining the best of both. It's flexible but retains its shape, practically unbreakable, repels dust, and wonderfully scratch-resistant.

Available in all colors (even transparent), TPU has allowed us to craft durable cases that can be used for a long time, and protects devices exceptionally well, even when dropped. These shock-absorbing adidas cases are also light-weight and easy to clean with a clean cloth and warm, soapy water. Slide it easily into your pocket and be ready for whatever life throws your way.

The use of silicone as a material in adidas cases provides our team with the ability to craft units that offer excellent thermal stability and low thermal conductivity. This means that these cases are ideally suitable for use in high temperatures on holiday, at home, or on the go in the car. Instead of heating up, silicone radiates heat from the phone through the case.

A dustproof silicone sleeve also minimizes surface dust, dirt, and debris. This very useful property helps maintain the appearance of your phone for a long time.


Polycarbonate is lighter, scratch-resistant, and more versatile than most other materials. It can be crafted into just about any shape imaginable, and is highly protective. Polycarbonate is also easier to recycle, and offer great insulation thanks to its low thermal conductivity.


Aside from its undeniably luxurious finish, leather is a very long-lasting material that has is comfortable to the touch as well as thick and soft. The aesthetics of the surface pattern on many types of leather also adds a lovely design element to items in which it is used. Furthermore, leather is naturally water-resistant.

Artificial Leather

Of course, not every person is comfortable using phone cases or other items that feature real leather, which is why we offer our clientele the option of enjoying the benefits of our innovative designs with the inclusion of artificial leather instead.

Vegan-friendly, versatile, and stylish, this material type is low-maintenance and durable. Due to the fact that it is more cost-effective to produce, procure and include in case designs, it also allows us to bring adidas phone cases to market that come with a more budget-friendly price tag.

From time to time, our design team likes to incorporate a selection of fashion-forward fabrics in the designs of our cases to set it apart from the rest. These fabrics are selected to bring something fun and tangible to our phone case designs that speak to exciting trends or other trail-blazing movements in this market.


As one the most abundant metals found in our Earth's crust, aluminum is relatively soft, durable, lightweight, ductile, and malleable metal that holds a great number of advantages when used in phone cases.

Because it's so light, it allows us to craft cases that don't add unnecessary weight to phones - great for folks who are always on the go and need a phone safety solution that won't weigh them down. Aluminum is also corrosion-resistant, which means that phone case components made from this material will last a long time. 

These are just a few of the benefits of the materials we use in crafting our adidas cases. If you would like to know more about a particular case and how it will help you to live your best life. We do great cases, so you can do life with confidence.
