Adidas Outdoor AX2 Mid

Affordable traction and great durability in a pint-sized package

Brand: Adidas Outdoor

Model: AX2 Mid


“I’m spiderman!” exclaimed one boulder-hopping tyke while wearing these kicks in Colorado’s Zirkel Wilderness. The lugged soles, made with super- sticky Traxion rubber, provided outstanding grip on all surfaces—even wet rocks and roots. The boots proved totally waterproof during deluges, thanks to the Climaproof membrane. The mid-height cut boosts ankle stability and the EVA midsole delivers all-day cushioning, making the AX2 ideal for big trips. And a season of hard wear produced only slight scuffs on the reinforced toe—the hand-me-down prospects look good.
