When he returned from fighting in World War I , Rudolf was trained as a salesman at a porcelain factory, and later in a leather trading business in Nuremberg. In , Rudolf and his younger brother, Adolf , nicknamed "Adi", founded a shoe factory. The pair started their venture in their mother’s laundry. At the time, electricity supplies in the town were unreliable, and the brothers sometimes had to use pedal power from a stationary bicycle to run their equipment.
The brothers drove from Bavaria to the Summer Olympics in Berlin with a suitcase full of spikes and persuaded United States sprinter Jesse Owens to use them, the first sponsorship for an African American. Owens won four gold medals. A growing rift between the brothers reached a breaking point during a Allied bomb attack.

Hary had worn Adidas before and asked Adolf for payment, but Adidas rejected this request.
