Maybe the biggest news to come to Adidas Outdoor is a crossover from their recent acquisition of 5.10 and that is Stealth Rubber. If there’s one thing to know about Stealth Rubber is their tagline, “The best friction on Earth.”
Here you see the Terrex Solo which features an Adiprene mid-sole combined with an EVA moldable tongue. It weighs in at a scant 375 frames. I really like the Black on Black colorway.
Something new is the KumaCross. It’s a mid-weight Gore-tex lined leather hiker. It features the patented Traxion sole and a dual density mid-sole of Adiprene.
Finally, is the Conrax. It’s a winter boot that won the 2011 Editor’s choice award for Backpacker magazine. It incorporates Adidas’ proprietary Climaproof membrane and features Primaloft insulation. The laces are covered with a zippered flap to prevent icing. I like the sped lacing and the temperature sensitive compound in the sole that work as lugs.
