adidas Terrex Free Hiker GORE-TEX Walking Boots
Move and explore. These lightweight boots deliver next-generation comfort and freedom of movement for hikes long and short. The adidas Primeknit upper hugs your foot for flexible, all-terrain stability, and the responsive Boost midsole delivers endless energy to keep you moving on the trail. A GORE-TEX membrane sheds water while letting your feet breathe.
The upper of the adidas Terrex Free Hiker has been constructed using a waterproof GORE-TEX membrane to keep your feet dry and protected as you take on the trail. GORE-TEX works tirelessly to shed water, whilst retaining breathable properties to improve comfort and airflow. Assisting the GORE-TEX membrane is a Primeknit material, encasing each foot in breathable comfort. Supplying flexible support, Primeknit increases ventilation and eradicates the build-up of sweat which is unavoidable during exercise. Sweat and moisture are wicked away from the feet leaving you feeling fresh and ready to clock up the miles in extreme comfort. The seamless, sock-like construction constructions provide an irritation-free fit. Light in weight and designed with motion in mind, Primeknit adapts to the changing shape of your foot through the gait cycle. The breathable Primeknit construction is also highly water-resistant and works to protect the feet during light showers. The ultra-thin film coats the upper to repel water; keeping you dry and comfortable in a variety of bad weather conditions. Abrasion-resistant reinforcements adorn the upper and ensure a trail-worthy state; improving support and durability, they help to anchor you to the midsole and reduce in-shoe slippage so that you can enjoy smooth, distraction-free strides. The moulded TPU toe cap exists to ensure toe protection against rouged and loose terrain whilst a heel cap promotes a natural fit; allowing for optimal movement of the Achilles while still providing support. Lastly, padding around the heel and ankles ensures an abundance of cushioning that ensures long-lasting comfort.
adidas take cushioning to new heights, with their ultra-responsive midsole: Boost. Tiny TPU capsules are moulded together to form a platform that is different to standard, solid foams; absorbing energy and then expelling it back out for a bounce-like effect. This energy return technology reduces the use of superfluous muscle power, diminishing fatigue and enhancing performance; keeping you going for longer. The plush, responsive cushioning will spare your joints as you sprint down onto hard, unforgiving concrete. Boost also manages to maintain its special function and bounce in conditions as low as -20 degrees, making it a reliable, durable and hard-to-beat midsole. Completing the midsole is a torsion system that exists to provide protection, control and an easy heel-to-toe transition.
Continental Rubber Outsole
The Continental Rubber compound offers maximum traction on a variety of different surfaces. The highly durable compound allows you to grip the ground beneath in both wet and dry conditions to reduce the chance of you slipping. Delivering optimal traction on varied surfaces, the continental outsole uses the ideal combination of specialised rubbers and design. Ensuring the perfect level of grip. the Terrex Free Hiker provides adaptable traction to tackle any rural area. A strong lug pattern works equally well on both hard and smooth or soft and loose surfaces to ensure optimum, multisurface grip.
