adidas Terrex Agravic Flow 2 Trail Running Shoe Review

, February 15, 2024

Heftier than the Salomon S/LAB but less aggressive than trail shoes from Icebug, the Agravic line from adidas’ Terrex brand serves up a versatile shoe to help runners appease Winter conditions and mixed terrain. The Flow 2 model’s 8mm drop encourages an efficient running form, while providing the amount of cushioning that you would want from a multi-terrain shoe.

The midsole of the shoe is made from adidas’ Lightstrike cushioning, designed to be lightweight and responsive without being overly forgiving. The Continental rubber sole reinforces the connection to German engineering and strikes another compromise: grip is aggressive enough, while the softer rubber holds well on hard and wet city surfaces.

As for materials, adidas’ relationship with Parley for the Oceans has been harnessed. The Agravic Flow 2’s upper is made with a high-performance yarn using c. 50% Parley Ocean Plastic – collected as part of beach cleanups. The remaining 50% of the yarn is made from recycled polyester. (A Gore-Tex version is also made within the Agravic line, not reviewed here.)

Weighing 280 grams (9.9 ounces) for a men’s size 9, the Agravic Flow 2 is a relatively lightweight shoe while burly enough to be an everyday trainer to knock around for training runs throughout the Winter and early Spring.
