When one of the world’s top producers of stylish sneakers sets its sights on a crossover pair of footwear featuring exceptional technology, you’d do well to listen up, pay attention and potentially get ready to buy a pair. Such is the case with Adidas and the Terrex Free Hiker, a new take on the sneaker-boot hybrid styles that have been all the rage for the past few years.
The brand calls it the “pinnacle of footwear performance tech and comfort,” an enviable and hard-to-find mix of qualities in terms of a pair of shoes you can wear all day. The Terrex Free Hiker uses a PRIMEKNIT upper (also water-repellent), combined with the world-beating BOOST technology that’s made Adidas a major player in the global footwear market as of late.
It’s everything you could ask for in a stylish sneaker, and it also delivers on the hiking boots front — these could just be the shoes of the future.
