We are not, unfortunately, talking about this handshake, or the Arab-Israeli conflict, but about the mysterious falling out between two German brothers, Adi and Rudolf Dassler, who dissolved their successful family sneaker business 61 years ago, set up rival sneaker companies, Adidas and Puma, on opposite sides of a river in the small Bavarian town of Herzogenaurach, and refused to speak to one another for the rest of their lives.
That family feud, which eventually grew into an intense and often bitter rivalry between the employees Sneaker war the two companies, endured for years after the death of the two men, but on Monday the war between the two global sneaker superpowers ended when their current chief executives shook hands and staged a joint corporate event to promote the International Day of Peace.
To this day the exact origin of the split between the two brothers, now buried at opposite ends of the same graveyard, remains a mystery.

Smit writes that one night inwhen their shoe factory was working on behalf of the Nazi war effort, one of the brothers made a disparaging remark about the about the Allied planes bombing their town that the other brother thought was really meant for him: One night, when Allied bombers started to drop their deadly loads on German soil, Rudolf Dassler took refuge in the family shelter with his son Armin, his wife, Friedl, and her sister Betti.
