Adidas’ New Hiking Sneaker Is Equipped With Waterproof GORE-TEX

Adidas’ established TERREX line has no qualms when it comes to taking on the planet’s most daunting outdoor areas, and over the past year, the brand has promised even greater technical prowess with their upcoming releases. Now, the TERREX Free Hiker GTX — a GORE-TEX-imbued revamp of the famed original — has finally made its debut.

While the GTX’s forerunner certainly wasn’t an ill-advised sneaker devoid of any redeemable properties, the ambitious company has decided to make the contemporary icon all-the-more capable. For this iteration, the Free Hiker will adopt the shoemaker’s signature BOOST technology, GORE-TEX waterproofing, and comfortable PRIMEKNIT upper, helping it to adapt to the wearer’s foot shape. As a result, the GTX is lighter, more breathable, and more capable than its counterpart. Aesthetically, the shoe remains strikingly similar, boasting an attractive mid-cut profile and a slip-resistant Continental rubber outsole. If you’re looking for a quintessential sneaker that successfully bridges the gap between urban style and outdoor supremacy, the TERREX Free Hiker GTX is available now for $220.
