Kit Focus – adidas TERREX Agravic Boa Trail Running Shoes

adidas TERREX Agravic Boa Trail Running Shoes
When it comes to shoes—for running or cycling, fit is 90 percent of the battle in getting a comfortable and injury-free choice. The adidas TERREX Agravic Boa Trail Running Shoes use the unique Boa Fit System most seen on cycling shoes—to give these trail running trainers a precision-level fit. They are fast, featherweight, and offer a comfortable platform for off-road running in dry trail conditions.


I recently reviewed the new Suplest Cross-Country Edge+ Pro Mountain Biking Shoes on lifeinthesaddle.cc. The comfort and performance of those shoes was exceptional—thanks to the clever carbon arch wrap support that the Boa Fit System delivered. With Boa now becoming more widely available on trail running shoes, and after a pleasing experience with adidas TERREX shoes in the past, I decided a pair of the new SS20 adidas TERREX Agravic Boa shoes were worth a shot…

The TERREX Agravic Boa shoes are sold as "light, fast, and stable trail running shoes—with the Boa Fit System for a personalised fit and effortless adjustment. They have a grippy Continental Rubber outsole for impressive traction and use adidas's Boost technology for a fast and comfortable run."

The 7 mm heel-toe drop of the Agravic felt at once comfortable to me—as a heel-striker, the added heel height makes a notable difference to landing and impact. The shoes also felt light and agile straight out of the box—thanks to the lightweight uppers—making them ideal for dusty summer trail runs.

Tightening up the BOA laces shows just how exceptional this design is for giving a personalised fit. The mini ratchet evenly pulls the laces on all parts of the shoe; bringing together the supportive arch wrap that is central to the TERREX design. The result is a fit that supports your arch, whilst not feeling tight or restrictive on any part of the uppers.

Out on the trails, the grippy Continental sole performs well in dry to moderate trail conditions—it is not a super aggressive tread, so would not be the best suited to very wet conditions. The patented adidas Boost cushioning is also every bit as comfortable and springy as its reputation suggests; delivering a stable but well-cushioned landing.

A good fit is the fundamental backbone of any shoe design, and the adidas TERREX Agravic Boa is one of the best fitting trail running shoes that I have run in. They feel snug, supportive, and structured; but without feeling restrictive to your feet.

The Boa Fit System, combined with a superb adidas last and Continental outsole, supply a stable and reassuring pair of shoes for fast summer trails.
