Who should NOT buy it

The Adidas Soulstride also has its flaws, and one of them is not being that speed-day option. Don't fret though. If you want to trim down your time by going fast, the Adidas Terrex Agravic Flow is a better choice.

Crushes through the road and trails

Sporting a hybrid lugged outsole, trail runners find the outsole excellent on forest soil, dry rocks, light mud and snow, and gravel. And it's not too aggressive; one reviewer says it "works as a cross-over" for both trail and road running.

So if you're looking to hit the road with this bad boy, the Adidas Soulstride is ready to serve that straightforward with a touch of rugged look on the pavement. 

Cheap but bulletproof 

It's only $80, and believe it or not, runners are amazed by how much of a bruiser this shoe is. Contrary to other Adidas Terrex running shoes, the Terrex Soulstride has a thinner-than-normal upper, "but it's every bit as durable!" one verified buyer shared ecstatically.

Another says, "I love these shoes" because they're high-quality; he's even planning to buy 2 more. It's a sturdy shoe overall with a strong midsole and a "brilliant grip;" one wear-tester mentions that it's easy to give it a "BIG thumbs up" (as in all caps). 

The Adidas Terrex Soulstride is uh-mazingly comfy

"COMFORTABLE LIKE CRAZY" perfectly sums up how more than 90% of testers feel about the Terrex Soulstride. So much so that one critic says "you never wanna stop running in these shoes" and another claims that it feels "comfortable like house shoes."

Whether running, hiking, or walking around town, its pillow-like cushioning makes this shoe "like a drug." Even after long hours, your feet and legs will feel comfy. 

Take it easy

As in don't go fast in the Adidas Terrex Soulstride because even if you want to, it can't. Although it has some bounce to it, several can't help but compare it to Boost running shoes in terms of energy return. It just falls short.

Weight: Definitely not a downer 

Some of the most used (if not overused) comments on this include "fantastic" and "very light." Trail shoes have always been thought of as heavy over the years, but the Adidas Terrex Soulstride contradicts this. It's not hefty; it doesn't drag the runner down.

The Soulstride anchors you to the ground

Grip aside, the shoe's wide base makes it easy to navigate the demanding trail terrain. On top of this, reviewers rave about the shoe's supportive midsole. When put together, they create "confident footing, no matter where the trail takes you," shared one expert.

One teacher who's on his feet all day claim that "these shoes were the answer!" to his constant back pain. A big runner, meanwhile, swears he can stand on his feet for 8 hours plus in this shoe. 

Nothing against wide feet

"A+++" is what an elderly runner with wide feet wants to rate the Adidas Terrex Soulstride. The upper is stretchy; it "fits my wide feet with comfort," he expressed.

Doesn't just dig the ground but also the skin 

This is especially true for the heel area. "It will rub the back of your ankle raw," warned one critic. Wearing medium-high socks is a definite must.

A trail beast isn't always ugly 

"They look cracking too!" "attention-grabber," "they look sooo good," and "they are fab" are among the many reviews that describe how visually pleasing the Adidas Soulstride is. 

It's sleek and simple; it looks great even for gym training. And your walks around town? Count the Soulstride from Adidas in. With its design, you can throw in a pair of jeans, and a plain tee, and you're good to go.
