Though best known for its on-the-court activewear, adidas has in recent years increasingly been tapping into the outdoor, hiking, and trail-running sectors — and to brilliant effect — with its Terrex lineup. In 2018, adidas unveiled its Terrex Free Hiker sneaker, though with several years having passed since the model’s debut, the hiking shoe was starting to look a little long in the tooth, ultimately prompting the German activewear brand to return to the drawing board and deliver a new and improved version of the outdoor sneaker.

The new Terrex Free Hiker is made using adidas’ Primeblue, an ultra-high-performance material largely crafted from recycled content including the use of Parley Ocean Plastic. The hiking shoes feature lace closure, water-repellent Primeknit textile uppers with abrasion-resistant weldings, adidas’ energy-returning Boost midsoles, a sock-style fit, and a stabilizing EVA frame. The bottom of the Terrex Free Hiker Primeblue is lined with insanely grippy rubber outsoles made from a proprietary Continental compound that affords ample traction even on wet or slick surfaces or terrains. On top of receiving numerous visual tweaks from its 2018 predecessor, this updated version of the high-performance hiking shoe is also now offered in four different color options. Available now, the adidas Terrex Free Hiker Primeblue Hiking Shoes are priced at $200.
