The Adidas Hoops 2.0 Mid is available for men and women. Its mid-top design provides more ankle support as it is basketball-inspired. The synthetic leather uppers also hold the foot better plus its breathable mesh collar adding comfort. The shoe also has a comfortable textile lining and a lace-up closure to have a customized fit. It is also suggested that one must purchase the shoe in person so that the sizing is not off. 

This mid-cut sneaker is based on a typical basketball shoe silhouette. The Adidas Hoops 2.0 Mid has a modern vibe with its signature 3-stripes on the sides that adds on to its classy appearance. With the neutral colorways available, sneakerheads find it apt to wear these kicks with jeans, joggers, and shorts, specifically with a nice white top.  

One of the noted features of the Adidas Hoops 2.0 Mid is its good-looking upper made of synthetic leather with the signature Adidas three stripes. The shoe also has a thick, white rubber outsole that looks great with any casual outfit. 

Under the Adidas group, the Adidas NEO, a sub-brand is one of the newest labels that offers casual apparel and footwear. Its target consumers consist mostly of the young generation ages 14 to 19 years old. What makes it unique is that the designs are based on how sports and trendy fashion go well together.  

The sub-brand also has an affordable price range as compared to other Adidas products, making it a favorite among its target audience. In July 2008, Adidas NEO was launched in China and the USA which eventually spread to the other countries. Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez were among their brand ambassadors.  

Now known as Adidas Essentials, the sub-brand luckily has the Adidas Hoops 2.0 Mid, which is basketball inspired. It has an attractive synthetic leather upper with a thick rubber outsole giving a sporty and modern look. 

  • The Adidas wordmark can be found on the tongue and heel. 
  • The Adidas Hoops 2.0 Mid has a die-cut EVA sock liner which provides comfort and cushioning.
