Best Adidas Trail Running Shoes

Sure they've been around forever, but Adidas has more than kept up with trail running technology. The company has solid innovation with obvious input from real deal runners. The result is a collection of comfortably fast kicks. 

MudGear has enlisted the expertise of ThistleRunning to hand out medals to the BEST ADIDAS TRAIL RUNNING SHOES.


Adidas Terrex Two Ultra Parley

Adidas Terrex Two Ultra Parley

  • Pros
    • Great Grip
    • Boost Cushioning
    • Made of recycled plastic.
  • Cons
    • Running small (order up).
    • Not waterproof

Terrex Two Ultra Parley will get our Adidas – MudGear “Gold medal” as best weapon to protect on those long trail runs.

They are lightweight and very comfortable, thanks to a foot-hugging knitted upper, a wide toe-box and plenty of underfoot cushioning that incorporates an EVA midsole.

The advanced Continental™ rubber compound is still behind the traction of these shoes, with a stud pattern that favors more agile movements no matter how rugged or unstable the terrain.



Adidas Agravic Flow GTX

Adidas Agravic Flow GTX

  • Pros
    • Breathable mesh upper with abrasion-resistant fabric
    • Perfect for rough conditions.
    • Waterproof
  • Cons
    • Little cushioning.
    • Toe area wide.

Agravic Flow GTX will get our Adidas – MudGear “Silver medal” as strong everyday shoe when the trails are tight packed, and you need comfort, support and relief.

Against wet and muddy conditions, the engineered waterproof mesh upper and high mud guard will protect our running journey from start to finish.

Designed with wide flat lugs made of sticky Continental™ rubber, the Agravic Flow performs smoothly on the pavement while providing a sticky grip on dirt trails and rocky terrain.



Adidas Agravic XT GTX

  • Pros
    • Premium materials / durability
    • Breathability
    • Lightweight construction
  • Cons
    • Toe area too wide
    • Outsole grip improvable.

Agravic XT GTX deserves our Adidas – MudGear “Bronze medal” as perfect choice for rocky, rooted terrain when we need that extra protection and energy return with every stride (specially now in Winter runs).

This edition of the Agravic XT line has a GORE-TEX® membrane that provides a considerable measure of waterproofing to its mesh upper. A variety of TPU reinforcements arranged along the midfoot which brings an additional layer of protection from injuries and abrasion to your feet.

These trailblazers have the outstanding durability of a Continental™ rubber outsole, whose rugged stud pattern allows the Agravic XT Gore-Tex to devour miles and miles of terrain with ease, keeping absolute traction in all types of weather conditions.
