The Adidas V Racer 2.0 fits smaller than the usual sneakers in the market. Therefore, it is suggested that users go one half to a full size bigger than their actual shoe size when ordering this kick. It is available in standard sizes for both men and women. 

Adidas V Racer 2.0 Style

As an athleisure shoe, the Adidas V Racer 2.0 is the typical kick that you would want to wear when going out for a walk or running a few errands. It has a stylish running shoe-inspired silhouette with the Three Stripes creating a stark contrast against the almost-plain upper.

This shoe looks great with track pants and a loose T-shirt. Ladies may wear this with their a skater skirt and long-sleeved top. The 2.0 version of the Adidas V Racer is also great with ripped jeans and denim shorts.

Notable Features

The upper of this sneaker is made of nylon with synthetic suede overlays on the heel and toe cap areas. Its signature Three Stripes branding is stitched on both the lateral and medial sides. 

A die-cut EVA midsole and durable rubber outsole are also featured on the Adidas V Racer 2.0 for lightweight comfort and cushioning. 

Adidas V Racer 2.0 History

As one of the longest-running sportswear and apparel companies in the world, Adidas has a plethora of shoes to choose from, not only for athletes but for sneaker fans as well. The company was started in 1949 by Adolf “Adi” Dassler in Germany. 

Adidas was initially known for its athletic shoes, including running, soccer, basketball, and boxing. But as time goes by and trends change, the brand created a sub-brand called the Adidas NEO

Shoes from this collection appeal mostly to the young millennials, but this is not to say that old school Adidas fans cannot wear them.  As a matter of fact, the styles of the Adidas NEO shoes are more aptly described as classics rather than futuristic. 

The Adidas V Racer 2.0 is one such shoe that has a timeless design but with modern twists. This kick sports a running-inspired silhouette in a combination of nylon and synthetic suede upper materials.
