As consumers, we often see products online or in stores without thinking about how they got there. For Hoa Ly, the Senior Vice President for Sourcing at adidas, she's made this part of the supply chain her career focus for over two decades. Growing up in a small town in Vietnam, the 3 Stripes brand was already infamous with everyone referring to their sports shoes as 'adidas'. Now living in Hong Kong, Hoa and her team are determined to turn design dreams into the real-life products we know and love.
