Preview: Adidas Terrex Trail Cross 2016

Is this the FiveTen killer?     *shock!*

This shoe probably slipped under your radar didn't it? Well its the Adidas Terrex Trail Cross shoe, the Adidas attempt at a shoe for platform pedals. Im nearing my first month on these shoes, and here are my quick notes;

Surprisingly stylish. Stiff bottom, a hard toe, and ankle section.

Note the bottom pattern, finally a shoe that's easy to climb with as well for those session days, even on rainy days.

813grams does not place it among the lightest shoes, nor the most heavy.

 Adidas owns FiveTen, so they have the right to the Stealth rubber. And the the durable stealth rubber, not the self destructive MI6-rubber found in the new line of FiveTen.

YAASSS!!! Finally a bungee for laces! Mah gawd we can send freaking astronauts to the moon but can't control laces (FiveTen wakeup!)

First impressions are very positive, I will however add that they take a bit to bed in.

So how do these shoes fare, and how do they compare to the platform pedal shoe maker giant FiveTen, well stick around as I write my final review.
