Adidas Releases a Color-Changing Sneaker That Reacts to Heat

Samantha Peters

Adidas Consortium has teamed with U.K.-based retailer End. for an update on the 2018 trail running model, the Terrex Agravic XT. Notably, the new iteration features Thermochromic color-changing technology, designed to let wearers know when they hit their peak performance. 

How exactly does it work? Thanks to heat-reflective paneling, the shoe will turn from black to fire red when the wearer’s feet heat up. The shoe also includes a colorful camo print outsole, reflective side stripes and cobranded details throughout.
