The Falcon Trainer features an upper made of a combination of genuine leather, synthetic leather, and mesh for that looks good but is still light weight and breathable. The adiTUFF strip over the toes reinforces high wear areas with abrasion resistance. The lining is a comfortable textile blend. It has an EVA insole inlay to pad the foot. It has a full EVA midsole to protect the foot from the constant pounding on the dirt. And the outsole is rubber with a hundred little studs on the ball and durable adiWEAR on the cushioned heel. The Falcon Trainer comes in black and white, white and black, red and white, blue and white, and navy and white. It is available in men’s sizes 4-13, 14 and 15.
“Long games and long practices are tough on a coach’s feet too. The Falcon Trainer is a versatile multisport shoe designed for extreme comfort and durability thanks to a long lasting and easy-to-clean leather and synthetic leather mix.” – Henning Haberstroh, Adidas Senior Product Manager for Baseball/Softball
Adidas is one of the largest athletic shoe companies in the world. Go to any soccer match, tennis tournament or golf course and you will see the “brand with the three stripes” well represented. Likewise in boxing rings and wrestling mats, track meets, basketball courts and football fields. But you don’t see a lot of Adidas on softball fields. The Falcon Trainer is a shoe that could well change that. It is extremely light weight and well ventilated. The insole molds itself to your foot in just a couple of wears – you can actually feel the shoe getting more comfortable each time you put it on until you simply don’t notice that you are wearing a shoe anymore. We’ve worn the shoe as a casual shoe, while jogging and while playing recreational softball and like the way it responds to whatever we’ve dished out to it. The look of the shoe’s upper is shiny – the black recalls a patent leather – and it gets dirty quickly, but it cleans up just as quickly using nothing more than a damp cloth; deeper dirt lifts right out with mild soap and a shoe brush. After dozens of wears the shoe still looks new, which is important when the shoe is part of the uniform.
