Adidas Tubular X 2.0 History

The original Tubulars were originally released in the 80s as a basketball shoe. However, it never quite achieved success with the public and was consigned to the archives. Decades later, Adidas’ VP of global Design, Nick Galway, would be going through the repository for a shoe he could use as a base for a new one he wanted to work on. The Tubular’s sole caught his attention. He and his team then spent hours upon hours redesigning the upper to come up with an outline that would be instantly recognizable, and in 2014, the new Tubular model debuted.

The Tubular became highly successful, spawning a variety of iterations and new models in various cuts, from high to low tops. One of these is the Tubular X which debuted in August of 2015. It had the Tubular sole, a high cut design as well as tongue, ribbed midsole, and a woven textile upper.

A follow-up, the Tubular X 2.0, came out on November 20, 2017, which was a lighter and slimmer version of the Tubular X.

Adidas Tubular X 2.0 Style

For men, to get that street style look down pat, pair your sporty high top Tubular X 2.0 with some simple chinos or jogger bottom along with a T-shirt and colorful track jacket. For women, a fitted shirt and a pair of leggings with your Tubular X 2.0 would look good.

Fit & Sizing

The Adidas Tubular X 2.0 is available in both men’s and women’s sizes. For men, sizes range from 3.5 to 13.5. For women, sizes offered range from 5.5 to 10. The shoe’s upper is made of woven material and may lack enough support.

Notable Features

The Adidas Tubular X 2.0 features Adidas’ iconic Primeknit material, which gives the shoe a comfortable and sock-like fit as well as the Tubular tire-inspired sole which provides it with a grippy feel. An Ortholite insole for cushioning nicely rounds the shoe off.

Additional Info

  • The shoe’s forefoot features an X-shaped panel.
  • The shoe has an EVA midsole and textile lining.
