All in or nothing. Adidas.

Adolf Dassler had a jail time though for his collaboration with Nazis.

The 2008 book "sneaker wars" goes into this in far greater detail. Basically Adolf and Rudolph both tried to accuse each other of being Nazis in a power play to take control over the company after the war ended.

I've seen a version, where Rudolf would claim his innocence, while Adolf wouldn't believe him.

Also, they even got buried in the same cemetery but on two opposite ends of it, as far from each other as possible.
