A WOMAN believes popular brands of sportswear such as Adidas and Nike are designer clothing.
Office worker Nikki Hollis regularly confuses high street brands with actual designer labels like Gucci, particularly when discussing her favourite topic, ‘scroungers’.
Hollis said: “All the people on the benefits programmes on Channel 5 wear designer labels like Adidas, Puma and Dunlop. They must be rich as kings.
“I work like a slave 36.5 hours a week and there’s no way I could just go into Sports Direct and buy a Nike tracksuit. I don’t know how much they cost but it’s probably £2,000 at least.
“There’s a bloke down the road on incapacity benefit and he’s always flashing his designer Reebok trainers around. I bet his mobility scooter was made by Versace.”
An Adidas spokesman said: “Our products are not technically ‘designer’ because we don’t employ a top couturier like Coco Chanel to make £40 polyester tracksuits.
“Also it’s unlikely that Liz Hurley would have gone to the premiere of Four Weddings and a Funeral dressed as a small-time cannabis dealer from Middlesbrough.”
