  • 86 / 100 | Mile Long Legs

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

  • 85 / 100 | Just Another Runner

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

  • 92 / 100 | Road Trail Run

    This is one durable shoe best suited to rough mountain pursuits where grip is key. 

  • 80 / 100 | Runblogger

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

Updates to Adidas 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.

Adidas 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.
