Updates to Adidas Terrex Two Parley

  • Trail running enthusiasts are the partners of the Adidas Terrex Two Parley, a running shoe that is designed to tackle a variety of activities off-road. The silhouette uses knitted fabric (some yarns are derived from recycled plastic) that has reinforced portions for security. Only the eyestays are graced with printed overlays. A one-piece design screams this product’s sock-like look and feel.
  • Underfoot support is the responsibility of the full-length midsole unit. This industry-standard feature, along with a soft insole, works as a responsive surface that accommodates the natural motion of the foot. Underneath the foam platform is Continental™ rubber, which is configured to handle the unpredictable outdoor terrains.

Size and fit

The sizing scheme of the Adidas Terrex Two Parley follows that of the standard running shoe. However, runners are advised to test the shoe personally and checking out user reviews before buying.

The elements that affect the fit profile are the form-fitting knit upper, the one-piece design that mimics the hug of a sock, and the semi-curved lasting board. The shoe has an overall construction that would accommodate low to medium-volume feet.

Outsole

The outsole unit of the Adidas Terrex Two Parley is made of Continent™ rubber. This layer is designed to protect the midsole from the abrasive nature of the trails. It also offers traction through the traction nodes that pockmark its surface.

Midsole

Ethylene-vinyl acetate or EVA is the material that is used for the midsole unit of the Terrex Two Parley. This feature is a standard choice for many performance footwear. Its full-length construction allows it to support the entire underside of the foot as it transitions through the gait progression. It is touted as a lightweight and flexible piece that doesn’t sag quickly. Many popular shoe series use EVA, including the long-running Hoka One One Bondi.

An insole is placed above the main cushioning unit. This add-on has a thin profile, yet its soft surface allows the foot to experience a smooth and accommodating texture. It can be removed or replaced with a new one if the runner wants to do so.

Upper

The upper unit of the Adidas Terrex Two Parley is made of a knitted textile. This design is meant to deliver a seamless coverage. There are no unnecessary stitched sections which can potentially cause hot spots to occur. Breathing holes permit air into the foot-chamber, thus bringing a cool and dry ride.

Some of the upper’s yarns are made of Parley Ocean Plastic™, human-made waste converted into sustainable cloth-like strands.

A one-piece configuration allows the foot to be fully wrapped. The A stretchy collar grips the bottom part of the leg, preventing accidental shoe removals. The absence of a traditional tongue unit aims to welcome a sock-like hug.

A multilayered weave serves as the ‘overlay’ system of this product. The heel, the sides, and the front have extra layers of yarn to bolster durability and help with the security of the foot.
