Multi surface-optimized outsole

The Adidas CrazyPower Trainer’s outsole is powered by the TRAXION technology for improved traction on multiple directions and surfaces.

The sole’s pattern is different between the two versions: the forefoot treads are protruding in the men’s version while they are concave for the women’s.

Heel ridges

On the other hand, the heel area has a pattern that features inverted Vs and two-columned ridges for the men’s version while the women’s version has simpler lengthwise ridges.

Abrasion protected outsole

The sole’s instep has rope grips installed to improve performance during rope climbing activities while protecting the shoe against abrasions.

Stabilized heel

The Adidas CrazyPower Trainer’s lightweight midsole uses the PRO MODERATOR technology, a 1.55-mm-thick material made of TPU that considerably lessens the overall shoe weight. It provides support that steadies the heel. The shoe’s heel drop of 3 mm provides a low-to-the-ground feel and an equal weight distribution, two factors that improve weightlifting stance.

Roomy forefoot

The upper of the Adidas CrazyPower Trainer has a stiffer construction compared to other cross-training shoes. It is made of textile and synthetic materials to deliver steady support. To further improve the sturdiness during weightlifting, the forefoot has been widened to enable natural toe splay.

An RPU protective cage overlay surrounds the façade of the shoe for improved durability in high-stress areas.

The front area is equipped with a raised toe cap to secure and protect the foot.

Hidden behind the main fabric is a cozy textile lining that staves off skin irritation.

Snug collar

A thin foam is placed in the collar to cushion the top part of the foot and to prevent accidental shoe removals.
