Bottom line

Banking on its comfort, aesthetics, and its budget-friendly price, the Adidas Icon 4 Trainer is indeed a welcome addition to the Adidas baseball shoe collection. With a modern tongueless construction, the pair hugs the player’s foot very securely, delivering a snug fit. However, this cleat is less than ideal for broad-footed players due to its narrow fit.

Good to know

The Adidas Icon 4 Trainer is one of the good ones within the Adidas’ arsenal of baseball trainers. The pair sports a mesh upper designed to bring breathability and durability to its wearers. With its tongueless design, the material hugs the foot, bringing a sock-like sensation. This setup doubles down on foot lockdown and stability. Another source of stability is the cleat’s heel counter. Reinforcing the cleatie-like feel is a central lacing system that also allows for fit personalization. 

For traction on turf courts, the tread of this shoe is designed to adapt to multi-directional movements made during training. This area is created with a rubber material.

A central lacing system has been integrated into the shoe’s construction for foot lockdown as well as fit customization. A tongueless construction creates a sock-like feel for the cleat’s wearers. In addition to this, a lace guard stitched onto the tongue promotes stability. 

The breathable mesh upper withstands abrasion during high-intensity training sessions. With its modern tongueless construction, this cleatie-type design creates a snug sock-like sensation while promoting foot lockdown. Hand in hand with this is a central lacing system that reinforces fit personalization, as well.

A rubber material of the Adidas Icon 4 Trainer is one created for traction and grip in turf courts. Sporting a cubed traction pattern, the tread is well-designed to adapt to multi-directional movements specific to baseball.
