Who should buy the Adidas Terrex AX2R
The Adidas Terrex AX2R is a lightweight and breathable shoe recommended for day hikers who:
- Will tackle dry terrain
- Need a shoe that can be worn straight from the box
Patented sticky outsole
The Terrex AX2R uses a super high traction rubber for its outsole coupled with Adidas’ Traxion technology to ensure an aggressive grip on various grounds.
Its Traxion technology features an outsole lug pattern that provides plenty of traction on all soft surfaces.
The Terrex AX2R uses an EVA midsole for lightweight, adequate, long-term cushioning. It has adiPRENE which is an elastic foam material created by Adidas. It absorbs impact and reduces the pressure felt by the foot, allowing softer landings.
Inside, a molded foam sockliner that provides a comfortable in-shoe feel. This footbed is removable and can be replaced with orthotic inserts.
The Terrex AX2R has a water-resistant upper made of tightly-knit textile, webbing, and synthetic to provide coolness and comfort while hugging the foot securely.
Although the lightweight upper is not waterproof, it is breathable and dries quickly. A protective toe rand helps resist abrasions. A heel pull tab also allows easy on and off.
