The Adidas AX2 is a versatile men's and women's hiking shoe that currently costs in the region of £60.
The standout feature of the AX2 is it's TRAXION outsole; you can see the TRAXION text printed in red on the outsole of the shoe shown above. TRAXION is a technology developed by Adidas that provides hikers with a high-traction rubber outsole that gives optimal agility and grip in every weather condition and activity. The AX2 features a lightweight upper made from mesh and synthetic fabrics; this has ensured that the shoe only weighs 310 g for men's size 8 (UK); which is a similar weight to Adidas' running shoes. The inner lining of the AX2 features a moulded sockliner: that helps to improve comfort and to lower the 'bed-in' time when the shoe is new. The midsole of the AX2 - placed in-between the mesh upper and TRAXION outsole - is made from EVA: helping to cushion the foot on easy trails. Adidas describe the AX2 as a versatile hiking shoe that is suitable for multifunctional use.
