adidas TERREX’s Speed Ultra Trail Running Shoe Can’t Get Much Lighter

Presented by

adidas TERREX has consistently been one of the most impressive outdoor brands for over a decade. Since its conception in 2011, the sub-label has managed to fuse the three stripes’ signature performance elements with trail-ready materials. One significant example of this is the Speed Ultra Trail Running Shoe.

The trusty trail runners feature adidas’ proprietary BOOST cushioning to deliver optimized energy return and responsiveness when taking on your next workout. Uber-comfortable Lightstrike material appears in the midsole to optimize your performance even further, as it provides you with the near-weightless sensation you need to tackle the trails.

What’s arguably most impressive about the new release is its ultra-grippy Continental outsole. This trusty compound delivers up to 30% more traction than your average pair of trainers and has been implemented on over 200 other adidas models. On that note, several athletes who have worn shoes with Continental soles have set marathon world records and even a Guinness World Record — who’s to say you won’t be the next with help from these?

If any of this isn’t convincing enough, take it from Tom Evans. The professional ultra-distance trail runner tested the shoe over two years and provided feedback to assist in constructing the ultimate shoe for the occasion — and this is that shoe. adidas TERREX’s Speed Ultra Trail Running Shoe is available on the performance label’s webshop in three chic colorways for $160.
