    Overall, the sole has a good solid yet comfortable feel while running. The heel is very stable and quite soft when descending but I would prefer if it was slightly narrower.

Updates to Terrex Skychaser

The Adidas Terrex Skychaser is a sleek-looking running shoe, which makes use of high-quality components and technologies. It delivers breathable coverage, comfortable cushioning and precise traction over the uneven off-road paths. It even has a mid-sole support unit that stabilizes the foot and supports it throughout the running session.

A breathable mesh makes up the main upper fabric of this running shoe. It keeps the foot cool and dry while also protecting it from debris and other objects on the trails. A mix of stitched and fused overlays adds more strength and structure to the upper.

The speed lacing construction allows the runner to adjust the fit easily and quickly. There’s no more need for unnecessary tying of the laces. The thin lacing wires help in reducing the overall weight of the shoe.

The heel section of the mid-sole features a thin TPU film, which provides additional medial and lateral stability. It’s a helpful mechanism because it supports the foot even when it’s tackling uneven terrain. It doesn’t let it wobble in place, acting like a solid foundation that keeps the platform stable and secure.

Terrex Skychaser size and fit

The Adidas Terrex Skychaser has a standard running shoe length. It comes in sizes that follow the regular measurements. Its semi-curved shape adheres nicely to the natural curve of the human foot. The available width is medium, which means that it accommodates those with medium sized feet.

Outsole

Continental™ Rubber is a sturdy compound that’s meant to provide sure traction and protection. It shields the mid-sole from the abrasive nature of the trails. It holds onto the ground well, keeping the runner safe from slippage, especially when handling slippery or challenging terrain.

Gripping lugs that face different directions hold onto the surfaces like teeth. They dig into softer ground, sinking into the soil to add more traction. They also act like hooks on harder surfaces, basically clinging onto the surface with sureness and efficiency.

Midsole

Boost™ is a full-length foam that’s poised to deliver responsive performance to the wearer. It is comfortable underneath the foot and it doesn’t break down easily. It gives a ‘boost’ of energy to each step, making the running output more energized and enabled.

The Pro Moderator™ is a thin TPU material placed in the rear section of the sole unit. It basically acts as a support module that stabilizes the foot and keeps it level while inside the shoe. It’s particularly helpful when it comes to traversing uneven and unpredictable terrain.

Upper

The air mesh is a fabric that allows environmental air into the shoe in order to maintain ventilation for the foot. It’s lightweight yet durable.

Abrasion-resistant welding adds more structure and strength to the upper. They’re mixed with stitched overlays, working together in order to maintain a snug and secure fit at all times.

The speed lacing construction utilizes a thin lacing wire that doesn’t require tying. The runner only needs to adjust the fit by manipulating the wire once and securing it via a locking mechanism.
