Updates to Adidas Icon Trainer

  • The Adidas Icon Trainer was created as a versatile workout shoe. Its upper is made of heather mesh which not only promotes movement but also keeps the inside aerated.
  • The midsole is crafted to be soft and attenuate shock during plyometrics, sprints, and running. It is also made to be low-to-the-ground and dense to offer steadiness and support while lifting weights or doing squats.
  • The underside is lined with translucent rubber. This compound is engineered to be durable and provide traction to the shoe.

Adidas Icon Trainer size and fit

The Adidas Icon Trainer is made to meet the unique needs, dynamics, and shape of men’s feet. It is available in US sizes 8 to 14. As for the width, it only comes in a D - Medium profile. The footgear is designed with a bootie construction which is meant to give a snug fit. 

Outsole

The outsole of the Adidas Icon Trainer uses a translucent rubber compound. This material adds style to the shoes and provides a durable barrier between the ground and the midsole. It has a tread pattern that promotes traction in different directions for a sure-footed feel. The rubber also extends to the front of the shoes, protecting the toes during push-ups, sled pushes, and burpees.

Midsole

The foam midsole of the Adidas Icon Trainer delivers soft cushioning that absorbs shock upon foot strike. It also quickly returns to its normal form to be ready for the next step. Like any other workout shoe from Adidas, the trainer uses a low-profile midsole which allows the wearer to feel steady during weight training and plyometrics.

Upper

The Adidas Icon Trainer employs a heather mesh. Though this type of fabric is tightly woven, it is still made soft to provide pliability. It also keeps the foot chamber well-ventilated. Because this material can easily get damaged, the high-wear areas are reinforced with durable overlays. The haptic print overlay provides seamless and flexible support without adding weight to the trainer.

The model features an internal bootie construction. It gives the inside a smooth and seamless feel to prevent irritation. The collar is designed to fit like a sock while also providing extra ankle support.

The lace-up system integrates with the panels created by the synthetic overlays. When the laces are tightened, the structure is drawn closer to the foot, thereby increasing the support needed during side-to-side movements.
