Combine Speed, Comfort and Stability with the Adidas Adistar Adapt

Men's StyleWomen's Style
The best trail shoes have it all Ė comfort for a fun run, stability to plow through tough terrain, and flexibility to handle all types of conditions. The Adidas AdiStar Adapt, recently named the Editorís Choice trail shoe for by Runnerís World Magazine, combines all three. This relatively light, low-to-the-ground trail shoe weighs in at 13.9 oz for men and 10.9 oz for women. An improvement upon the Adistar Trail, this shoe is a good match for lightweight runners aiming for speed.

Like most Adidas shoes, the Aidstar Adapt includes adiPRENEģ + to protect the forefoot against rough conditions. Additionally, it contains the Adidas Ground Control Systemô, allowing the heel to move independently of the shoe and adapt to the ground. A mesh layer on the top of the shoe helps provide breathability for a more comfortable run. Though they retail at $110, I have seen them for as little as $79.99 on websites such as, which compares favorably with the Nike Air Cesium. For more information, check out the Adidas website.
