Reliable tractions with the Adidas Supernova Trail outsole

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.

Adidas double feature in the Adidas Supernova Trail midsole

The midsole 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 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.

Contours to the shape of the foot with the Adidas Supernova Trail upper

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 encouraging the best movement of the foot.
