Adidas X9000L2: Stylish and versatile Adidas running sneaker

Inspired by gaming culture, the Adidas X9000L2 features a futuristic, eye-catching design. The tread pattern on the outsole aims to provide grip while the textile upper ensures a comfortable fit. The stylish design also makes Adidas X9000L2 a good shoe for casual walks and city runs. 

Data-driven and bold design

The Adidas X9000L2 is a modern casual kick with bold visuals and computer-generated design.

  • The data-driven tread pattern aims to deliver excellent traction on various paved surfaces.
  • The small triangles on the upper and the supportive underlays give the shoe a bold look without compromising durability and support.
  • The Adidas X9000L2 makes use of the Bounce midsole foam that gives flexibility and high-rebound cushioning.

Good to know

  • Aside from the Adidas X9000L2, the Adidas X9000 collection also includes the X9000L3 and X9000L4. Both models feature a modern look and equipped with a data-driven design for a comfortable running experience. But instead of the Bounce, the X9000L3 and X9000L4 make use of the Boost midsole that gives users a responsive ride.
  • The sockliner of the X9000L2 is an algae-based EVA foam. It is part of Adidas' commitment to a healthier planet.
