For entry level shoes, these are light and the fit is excellent. Perhaps not the shoes to take out on very rocky or muddy terrain, these are more being suited to footpaths and bridal-ways.
Updates to Adidas Tracerocker
- The Adidas Tracerocker is a trail running shoe that caters to those who have a neutral gait. Employing a sturdy construction, this model aims to function properly, even after many uses. The façade has a sporty look, with traditional overlays stitched onto the mesh to maintain overall structure and durability. A subdued, almost monochromatic color scheme maintains a clean and consistent visual aspect.
- The mid-sole of this running shoe makes use of the standard foam, Ethylene vinyl acetate or EVA. It offers responsible cushioning, shock absorption and general comfort throughout the adventures on the trail. A molded foam insole adds a bit more cushioning.
- The bottom part of the Tracerocker was designed to have aggressive gripping lugs. It’s made to allow the shoe to handle the unpredictable terrain with ease and sureness. A proprietary rubber compound is utilized here. It’s durable and able to provide responsible traction.
Adidas Tracerocker size and fit
The Adidas Tracerocker has a standard running shoe length. It follows the regular preferences of runners in terms of size. The available width for the men and women’s version is medium. It caters to those who have medium sized feet. It has a semi-curved shape, so it naturally adheres to the curve of the human foot.
The outsole unit of the Adidas Tracerocker makes use of the TRAXION® rubber pattern, which optimizes the placement of gripping lugs for better traction over the surfaces. The rubber compound used for this model is durable. Aside from providing grip, it also protects the mid-sole from wear and tear.
Lightweight Ethylene vinyl acetate composes the mid-sole unit of the Adidas Tracerocker. This full-length foam provides responsive cushioning and shock attenuation throughout the run. It doesn’t sag or wear off easily, as well.
A molded foam insole is placed right above the main mid-sole foam unit. Its purpose is to add a bit more cushioning for the foot of the wearer.
An abrasion-resistant textile is used for the upper unit of the Adidas Tracerocker. It protects the interior chamber from being infiltrated by rocks and other trail debris.
Synthetic overlays are stitched onto the façade of the shoe. They make the product sturdy and more protected. Strips of overlays also connect to the lacing system. They assist in adjusting the fit to suit the preference of wearers.
The padded tongue and collar give cushioning to the top section of the foot. They also help in keeping the foot in place.
A pull loop in the heel part of the upper makes it easier for runners to wear and remove the shoe.
