Updates to Adidas Supernova Trail
- The Adidas Supernova Trail is a trail running shoe that strives to excel on rocky and uneven terrains with its responsive dual-density cushioning and stable support. The structure of this shoe boasts of ruggedness and durability that performs significantly on off-road adventures.
- Some consumers may be aware that Adidas has offered a similarly named shoe in the past. But while both shoes target the same terrain, each one has its set of features and technologies that are different from the other.
- This version of the Supernova Trail features a mesh upper that includes a seamless waterline design, which works as a defensive unit against getting the shoe wet. Meanwhile, the midsole is a dual-density cushioning structure that yields a balance of stability, comfort, and responsiveness. The stability shoe sits on an outsole made from a combination of Stretchweb and Continental™ rubber compounds for the ultimate traction.
Adidas Supernova Trail size and fit
The length and width of the Adidas Supernova Trail are of a standard running shoe’s, and it is also available in assorted sizes. It has a moderate structure that will fit up to high foot volumes, and its shape follows the anatomical foot figure. The Supernova Trail could be purchased in men’s and women’s medium width.
Adidas uses a combination of rubber compounds to create the outsole of the Supernova Trail, promoting both traction and durability.
The Continental™ rubber is formed from the same material as automobile tires, which immediately makes it durable and high-endurance. In this shoe, the Continental™ outsole works by gripping the runner’s terrain no matter the condition.
On the other hand, the Stretchweb technology gives the outsole its webbed appearance. It is the same outsole technology used in the popular Adidas Ultra Boost. This pattern allows the shoe to flex optimally, with the aim of reducing the impact from footstrike. As the pressure against the foot lowers, comfort is enhanced, therefore improving the running performance.
The midsole of the Supernova Trail features two of Adidas’ proprietary cushioning materials: The adiPRENE and the boost™. The adiPRENE® covers the length of the shoe, providing overall cushioning and shock absorption. Its durable structure guarantees long-lasting comfort. Meanwhile, the boost™ midsole found in the arch aims to correct pronation, as it delivers an energized stability for smooth transitions.
In between the heel and forefoot is the Torsion System, a thermoplastic unit that allows the front and rear of the foot to move independently and flex more appropriately, thus reducing muscle strain. While this happens, torsion is produced, enabling the midfoot to adjust to the ground and stabilize the rest of the foot.
A respoEVA sock liner completes the midsole. It is capable of molding according to the underfoot form to give the optimum instep comfort.
A breathable mesh serves as the upper of the Supernova Trail. It has a flexible structure that works by contouring to the shape of the foot, thus lessening skin irritations. The top also displays a waterline design that brings the shoe its water-resistant quality.
Runners are ensured heel support with the Geofit collar. Made from memory foam, the Geofit wraps around the heel and ankle to supply additional comfort and backing, especially during indoor runs.
The Achilles Fit System of the shoe provides a better fit and reduces slipping issues. A Fitcounter supports this system by securing the heel further and encourages the best movement of the foot.
