Bottom line

With more silhouettes getting lighter and lighter in weight, the Three Stripes brand complied with its promising Racer yet. The Adidas NEO Lite Racer Reborn houses multi-functional attributes and uncontested comfort all packed up into one athleisure vessel.

The classic Three Stripes branding was given a contemporary twist mimicking the form of NMDs and cleatie-constructed silhouettes alike. Coming in hot with bountiful colorway options, the sneaker maintains its sleekness with the white midsole that fortunately is easy to clean.

Good to know

The Lite Racer Reborn by Adidas has laces that offer a snug fit along the mid shank, while a heel pull loop makes it easier for the user to slip it on. The sneaker is made into two classes--one for males and one for females. 

Sporty-looking apparel like these Adidas Lite Racer Reborn shoes should come with a comparably outgoing outfit. Included in this athletic clothing line up are track pants and jogger pants. Fitting them with tight-suited trousers would also suffice. For the ladies, a good pair of leggings should always do the trick. In case of emergency, break the skinny-pants glass and strap down on those old pair of denim jeans.

The almost-chunky appearance was made possible by the combined midsole plus outsole which cradles the tech-forward look of its upper. The almost one-piece upper pays homage to the concurrent trend of mixing slip-ons with casual wear with a dash of Adi Dassler blessing infused on the sides via the Three Stripes.

What defines the Adidas Lite Racer Reborn from all of its sibling Racers is the sleekness of its facade from the back of the heel towards the front. Containing a minimal amount of overlays, the sneaker showcases fused Three Stripes branding on the lateral and medial sides while the heel does not employ a steady heel counter compared to the other Racers.

To give the active portion of the society a chance to cop the latest and hippest trends while not sacrificing much on the price, Adidas conceptualized a subsidiary in 2009. Catering mostly to outgoing teens and fashion-forward connoisseurs, Adidas NEO gave new light to those who are spontaneous when it comes to fickle-minded clothing.

Officially unveiled in 2011, the then-upcoming NEO enterprise started to reproduce stylish footwear that hailed from their iconic counterparts on the Adidas archive. Aside from pulling accents from previous models, the franchise also focused on creating its own design. Examples of these are the Adidas Daily series and the Adidas Lite Racers.

In 2019, a brand new iteration surfaced called the Adidas Lite Racer Reborn which was a fresh new take on the old Cloudfoam-constructed silhouette of the Racers. Also known as the Adidas Lite Racer RBN, the sock-like construction of the sneaker aligns with the prevalent trend of its time as well as its lightweight assembly. With a plethora of ever-changing colorways, the Lite Racer Reborn enlists itself as a staple casual option for everyday wear.

  • The sneaker’s upper is composed of textile.
  • Adding to its heavenly cushioning is an OrthoLite Float insole.
  • The men’s and the women’s have color-specific variations.
