I love this shoe. It's a great winter shoe because it gives you stability and traction on the icy crud yet still feels quick and light when you transition to dry road. I'm buying a second pair.

    Such a wonderful trail shoe; very light and fast-feeling, with great traction. A wee bit stiff for pavement, but just perfect on trails.

            I brought the men's version of this shoe for my friend and he raved about them. Then I got them for myself and feel the same. These shoe are the lightest shoes I've ever owned. Great traction. I absolutly love them. I can say nothing bad about them. I'm sad that they are not making them anymore.

              I used this shoe on a recent 50-mile trail race. My feet didn't have any issues - not one blister or other shoe-related problem. Of course, after 50 miles they were getting kind of sore on the bottom - which went away a few hours afterwards.

              I'd recommend this to anyone running trails - best suited for maintained trails that aren't super rocky (no rock shield in forefoot). Good traction on the steep downhills too.

              Comments about Womens adidas adiZERO XT 2 Trail Running Shoe:

              I ordered these shoes after several excellent experiences with Adidas trail running shoes. At first, the shoe seemed perfect: nimble, lightweight, monster traction, breathable and well-cushioned, but I had to return the shoe. After about an hour, I developed a bruise on my right big toe knuckle, right where the forefoot bends. The toe box seemed too low. Sending them back felt like a loss, as the shoe otherwise was nearly perfect. I run rugged, muddy and slippery trails with plenty of wood debris (slimy) and never felt like I was losing traction. The shoe also did well on dirt and gravel roads.

                Comments about Womens adidas adiZERO XT 2 Trail Running Shoe:

                Adidas never fails to please with their trail shoes. Great styling, comfort, durability, and ruggedness that you come to expect from them. Grippier lugs for better traction and a cool and convenient little pouch on each of the shoes for key storage (or whatever else you can fit)! The only precaution is that this shoe (unlike my other adidas trail shoes) runs a little bit big. I know the site says to order a half size up...don't do it. Order your normal size even if all your other adidas shoes are a half size up. I ALWAYS wear a 9 in their trail shoes and I ordered a 9 in these. Too much roominess in the toe box area. Had to return them for my true 8 1/2 size. When I spoke to customer service about my return, the rep even said that these shoes do run bigger than their other shoes and that I should have ordered my true size...despite what their comments for these shoes say about ordering a half size up. Other than that the shoes are fabulous for hitting the trails with confidence!!!

                But my foot slid around inside a bit too much. Might need to tighten the laces?

                  Comments about Womens adidas adiZERO XT 2 Trail Running Shoe:

                  After using two others trail running shoes for the last six years I was convinced by the hype for this shoe to give it a try. I am so glad I did, and wish I'd learned about it sooner. It is ridiculously light, cut low to the ground for great feedback, and the traction sole is easily the best I've used (or seen) for the types of trails I run on all year but especially in the winter: snow, ice, mixed mud, hard-pack, grassy areas. The cushioning is sufficient but minimal; I don't use these on the road.

This particular pair were for my 13 year-old daughter to wear for all terrain running and gym class and practically any activity. She had "borrowed" my first pair and loved them.
