Adidas Partners With Parley To Make A Sustainable Ultra-Comfy Hiking Shoe

Mar 4, 2020

When it was first announced back in 2018, the Adidas Terrex Free Hiker made some pretty big waves in the outdoor world, as it marked the very first time a cushy Boost midsole was put into hiking-focused footwear. And while the original is still a spectacular sneakerboot, the brand has just unveiled an even more enticing version made with sustainable materials.

Everything we loved about the original is still very much intact. That includes its lugged Continental outsole — great for grip on any terrain — as well as (of course) the Boost midsole and more. The difference, however, can be found in the PrimeKnit upper — which is still as stretchy and breathable, but now features upcycled Parley Ocean Plastic. That means this $200 hiking shoe will help you get out and enjoy our natural spaces while serving to be a good deal more environmentally-friendly in the process. And that’s a big step in the right direction.

Purchase: $200
