Who should NOT buy it

If you're looking for something more form-fitting, skip the Lite Racer and opt for the Adidas Lite Racer Adapt 3.0 instead. Also, you're better off with the supportive Adidas ZX 750 if you need that extra assurance underfoot.

The Adidas Lite Racer in history

Adidas formed the NEO, also tagged as Essentials, in 2011. This sub-branch is directed at providing the younger generation with footwear that is comfortable, fashionable, and affordable. Most of the sneakers introduced under the NEO were inspired by the iterations that came straight from the colorful archives of Adidas. 

Under NEO, the brand was able to launch countless fashionable and budget-friendly footwear, apparel, and various accessories to suit the younger market. This sub-branch has a wide range of sneaker iterations for men and women inspired by multiple sports, such as tennis, running, basketball, soccer, and many more.

One silhouette included in the NEO collection is the Adidas Lite Racer. This running-inspired footwear has the elements—style, comfort, and affordability—that make it the go-to pair by many users.
