Sturdy multi-directional grip on different surfaces

A rather sticky rubber covers a large portion of the outsole in the Galaxy Trail while the heel and part of the tip of the forefoot have a sturdy carbon rubber.

The forefoot to the heel is filled with moderately aggressive lugs that provide multi-directional grip on different surfaces. Running on grass, soft ground, and small rocks should be no problem with this outsole.

Galaxy Trail offers durability and soft cushioning

The Cloudfoam, which is used in many of Adidas’ entry-level and popular shoes like the Duramo 9, is utilized in this shoe as well.

It does have average durability, but the cushioning is soft and responsive altogether. The full-length coverage means that the landing to take-off movements should be enhanced.

Adidas Galaxy Trail provides style and functionality 

Adidas offers an upper construction that is a nice blend of style and functionality. A very breathable mesh and leather-like overlays form a big part of the upper.

The overlays are strategically placed for maximum comfort and support. One overlay in the forefoot, which also holds the last part of the lace, also makes up the substantial toe protection. A prominent heel tab makes shoe entry and exit easy and quick.

Both the tongue and the ankle collar have sufficient padding, which add to the plush feel of the Adidas Galaxy Trail.
