As the UK weather flits from warm to cold, rain to sun, snow to hail and so on, just how should the discerning gent prepare his footwear choice accordingly? It’s a conundrum that will forever perplex. The trusted boot is one solution but what if the comfort of a trainer is desired instead? With the Adidas Terrex Free Hiker boot the versatility is there.
Combining the beauty of a trainer with the sturdiness of a hiking boot, these lace up are built of the toughest of terrains or the busiest of commutes. Featuring a water repellent Primeknit upper that provides sock-like fit and comfort as it stretches to the contours of the foot but also changes as the foot expands during longer hikes. Weighing just 385g, the Free Hiker has the versatility to survive the most hectic of hikes or help you navigate the commute better.
On the outside, the Continental rubber outsole provides the grip for any terrain whilst the Boost midsole gives lasting cushioning when required the most during long hikes. The Free Hiker is available in black / grey tones highlighted with a flash of colourful hue that are either orange or purple.
The move by Adidas to launch the Free Hiker is perhaps in response to the growing “urban hiker” trend that has already seen huge spikes for high performance wear for brands like Patagonia and The North Face. Fashion is continuing to merge with high performance and this will certainly continue well into 2019, if not longer.
