It is best to ignore the message and do not fall into the trap. The message looks suspicious and the company has also not made any official announcement regarding Adidas Free Shoes Women’s Day.
A WhatsApp message has been forwarded many times with a link saying “Adidas Women’s Day gift”. The message claims to be an offer from Adidas stating that the German multi-national company is giving away 1 million pairs of shoes to celebrate Women’s Day.

You have a chance to get free shoes provided by Adidas for Women’s Day.”The WhatsApp link claiming Adidas Free Shoes Women’s Day doesn’t have any content but just pictures.
