Adidas Outdoor unveiled new footwear styles from its Terrex line with mountain-friendly designs made specifically for the outdoor athlete. Whether climbing, trail running, mountain biking, kayaking or on another alpine-inspired excursion, Terrex promises to earn its hashtag, #livewithoutlimits.
The Adidas Terrex line includes the much awaited X-King and Climacool Voyager Water Shoe Hiker, among other offerings.
Adidas Terrex X-King was co-created with Continental – better known for its car, moto, bicycle, truck and tractor wheels. Manufactured like a tire, the rubber compound is heat-pressed into the upper material, reducing weight so the shoe is lower to the ground with a 6mm heel lift. The X-King is made for mountain runs, being protective yet lightweight, and grippy thanks to tire technology.
The Climacool Voyager Water Shoe takes its place as the new Adidas king, made for the lightweight hiker whose adventure takes them through running and water sports alike. With a running silhouette, side vent drainage system and EVA cushioning that is soft in the middle and hardens at the outer rim, the design is a union of fashion and usability. The shoe is also easy to pack for travel.
The Terrex Agravic also offers lightweight stability and protection when trail running but is set apart by its Adidas Boost cushioning technology. Its minimalist design leaves room for swooning over the breathable EVA tongue and Continental outsole – which is really simple but also really to-the-point and comfortable. The lug profile was inspired by the Continental mountain bike tire Der Kaiser 2.4 Projekt, making the gist of this shoe to be performance-driven and tough.
If the Agravic is the Jack, Terrex Solo is the joker – made for the light, fast and flexible trail runner who is always jumping down the track. Designed with Stealth rubber in the forefoot to handle loose climbing zones and Traxion outsole rubber for enhanced grip stability.
Lastly in the Terrex line is the Scope High, Adidas’ high-cut alpine shoe. The ankle protection height with GoreTex membrane is a life saver going through high-mountain brambles and bushes. The heel is cushioned with Adiprene and Stealth rubber makes for great grip on damp or rocky terrain. Also offered in a low-cut version.
