adidas Terrex AX3 GORE-TEX Walking Shoes
Designed for rainy-day hikes, these hiking shoes have a lightweight, durable mesh and synthetic upper with a GORE-TEX membrane to help keep feet dry. The Continental Rubber outsole offers secure grip on rugged, uneven terrain.
Mesh and synthetic uppers will encase each foot in durable comfort. Perforates in the fabric increase airflow, promoting a better healthier environment for your feet to thrive in. Synthetic overlays reinforce the shoe's protective, hiking-worthy state; increasing rigidity and defending your feet against roots, rocks and general hazards. To avoid damp feet, and therefore dampened spirits, a GORE-TEX membrane resides inside the shoe; supplying a combination of durable waterproofing and optimised breathability. Sometimes it's hard to stay dry without developing that distracting clammy feeling, but GORE-TEX keeps water on the outside while letting perspiration escape from the inside; keeping sweat to a minimum and you, cool and comfy. Completing the upper is a lace closure system which helps to anchor you to the midsole and reduce in-shoe slippage so that you can enjoy smooth, distraction-free strides.
Lightweight EVA Midsole
A full-length platform of EVA resides underfoot for lightweight, responsive cushioning. Generous, soft and durable, it spares your joints as you strike down onto hard, unforgiving surfaces. Exceptionally lightweight, the EVA ensures long-lasting cushioning to keep you comfortable on long distance days. EVA is extremely firm, which will absorb shocks instantly and effectively, preventing them from causing any damage to the sole of the foot. Energy produced from this will also be returned as a rebound, which will give you an added spring in your step. The midsole ensures you're ready for the unpredictable trails and tough terrain. A moulded sock liner sits comfortably against the skin and provides additional underfoot comfort.
Continental Rubber Outsole
TheTerrex AX3 GORE-TEX features a Rubber outsole from Continental. Their decades of experience with tyres has allowed Continental to develop an elite rubber outsole that allows you to reach unprecedented levels of both speed and safety, whether you are on flats, uphill, or downhill. The winter compounds created by Continental are used on their award-winning tyres, so you can rely on this outsole for outstanding traction and control. An adidas Continental sole gives you 30% more grip on dry and wet surfaces; as you run you can feel this incredible technology working and keeping you safe, whether you are on mud, grass, stone, snow or ice. Lastly, outsole cutouts have been used to reduce the overall weight of the shoe and to provide multi-directional grip.
