8 reasons to buy

  • Many runners generally liked the color schemes of the Adidas Terrex Agravic.

  • The upper unit’s strong fabric lasted long, according to some of those who have reviewed it.

  • The toe bumper gained some recognition because it was able to protect the foot well.

  • There were those who felt the responsive ‘pop’ of the mid-sole unit, stating that it helped in improving each step.

  • The outsole was sticky enough to cling onto different surfaces, wrote many purchasers.

  • A reviewer reported that the Adidas Terrex Agravic was able to run surprisingly well at moderate to slower speeds.

  • The general durability of this running shoe was praised by many runners.

  • A tester wrote that they remained comfortable even when transitioning from the trails to the roads.

3 reasons not to buy

  • The thin laces caused a bit of premature unraveling and looseness of the fit, noted a tester.

  • A reviewer wrote that the padding in the heel and collar was a bit thin, nearly causing their feet to wobble and come off of the shoe unceremoniously.

  • Some consumers noticed its weight, which, for them, was a tad heavy.

Bottom line

A lot of consumers were pleased with the performance of the Adidas Terrex Agravic. For them, this trail companion was able to deliver on its purpose. It kept them running confidently on technical terrain. They were even able to transition well from the trails to the pavement. Conversely, its weight didn’t sit well with several runners, and there were some who had concerns with a few of its upper components. But this neutral shoe was efficient, according to many.

    It has quickly become a go-to shoe for me on days that I want to go play on technical, muddy, slick trails.

    I really like the sole of the shoe. It's good. It's grippy.

    Fantastic outsole that is pretty aggressive, but should run ok on the occasional harder trail.

    I tried everything to get the Agravic to work for me, including modifying the lacing and upper to get better security and relieved high lacing pressure issues but to no avail.

    The ride is as mentioned fairly supreme, its only weak spot is super hard and flat surfaces that drag on – here the shoe can feel a little ‘slappy’, the overall undercarriage preferring more technical or soft ground underneath.

    With good style (“I felt chic even walking around fashionable France.”), unbeatable comfort, and an airy weight and feel, these are perfect for trail and bushwhacking approaches, easy scrambling, trail running, and travel.

    The all-new Adidas Terrex Agravic enters a highly competitive trail-running shoe market, but even with a price tag of $135, we think it holds its own. It’s a far more serious shoe than the popular Brooks Cascadia 11 and Saucony Peregrine 6, which are lighter but less stable.

    Overall, the Adidas Terrex Agravic shoes are a solid, lightweight trail runner that felt good, looked great, and performed amazingly on a variety of local trails.

    My only gripe maybe was the dirt and wet that ended up in there, but to be fair the conditions I ran in were so loose and wet and the foot moved around and stretched the shoe so much that something was gonna get in.

Updates to Terrex Agravic

The Adidas Terrex Agravic is a trail running shoe that’s meant for runners who want to gain the advantage of strong traction and surface control when tackling the unpredictable trails. It features a modern look that caters to the tastes of contemporary trail blazers. Several color schemes provide more choice in terms of the visual aspect of this shoe.

The upper unit features a single-layer mesh material that’s resistant to abrasion. It’s going to be easier for runners to traverse rocky or dust-filled paths because the debris won’t tear through the fabric easily. A rubber toe-bumper covers the forefoot section of the shoe; it protects the foot from injury.

The platform of the Adidas Terrex Agravic makes use of the highly reliable boost™ mid-sole material, which is made from the amalgamation of thousands of cushioning beads. It carries the foot well and protects it from impact. A top-tier rubber compound covers the mid-sole and shields it from the potentially harmful effects of surface exposure, debris and continued use. Prominent gripping lugs provide more traction.

Terrex Agravic size and fit

The Adidas Terrex Agravic is true to its sizing schemes. Standard sizing schemes were utilized in the making of this running shoe. The available width is medium. It accommodates those with medium sized feet. Its semi-curved shape follows the natural curvature of the human foot.

Outsole

The outsole unit of the Adidas Terrex Agravic makes use of Continental® rubber, which is a high-quality material that’s strong and long-lasting. It holds onto the ground well, and it protects the mid-sole from the unsavory effects of continued use.

Gripping lugs pockmark the surface of this shoe’s outsole. They face different directions. They actually assist in providing more traction to the wearer, thus making it easier to traverse the unpredictable terrain.

Midsole

The boost™ mid-sole is a full-length foam unit that’s made to keep the foot comfortable throughout the running experience. It cushions each step and adds a bit of a ‘pop’ to the toe-off. It doesn’t break down easily, therefore rendering the shoe’s platform consistently efficient, even after many uses.

Upper

Abrasion-resistant mesh makes up the main upper fabric of the Adidas Terrex Agravic. Its job is to cover the foot and keep it safe from environmental debris. It’s not stiff or unwieldy because it easily follows the movements of the wearer’s foot.

Thin overlays have been fused onto the main upper fabric, providing a snug and secure fit that’s supportive and encompassing.

A rubber toe bumper acts as a shield against surfaces and debris that may hit the shoe, therefore sparing the toes of the wearer from getting potentially injured.

A pull-loop in the heel section of the upper unit makes it easier for runners to wear and remove the shoe.
