Adidas Lite Racer BYD History

Passion and vision are all it takes to make a dream come true and the founder of the world-renowned apparel brand, Adidas, worked on just those two values to realize it. Founded in 1949, Adi Dassler’s Adidas entered the sneaker market with its spiked soccer, and track and field sports shoes. This catapulted the brand into the limelight, raging success nipping at its heels.

Today, Adidas stays both popular and relevant by offering the public shoes that boast the right mix of quality, design, and innovation. When it comes to upping the game with sneaker tech, Adidas is at the forefront of the race with no plans of slowing down. One great example of an Adidas technology that many people have taken a liking to is the Cloudfoam. This sneaker technology offers both instep comfort and cushioning at a superior level.

Adidas’ Cloudfoam-integrated sneakers include the running-inspired Adidas Lite Racer lifestyle kicks. Clean and contemporary, the low-top BYD version has a nice and snug mesh build to it that adds to its whole “comfort and style” persona, capping off a decent shoe that performs well and gives wearers everything that they are looking for in a sneaker.
