Adidas designed Boost running shoes to function as shock absorbers for the body. With them the athletic wear giant flew in the face of the minimalist trend meant to simulate barefoot movement, and hit a home run.
But we're talking about street running, tracks, level pathways. With the upcoming launch of the Adidas Terrex Free Hiker, they're ready to take over the hills and deep woods, too.
Adidas has designed the Free Hiker to take on the elements with stretchy, water-repellent Primeknit and a sock-like extension to keep the interior safe from the grit and gravel that can take all the fun out of your explorations.
The Boost cushioning in the sole as well as a rugged rubber outsole add serious grip, which will have you taking on the most challenging uphill climb.
The Free Hiker mainly comes in an anthracite-based colorways with differing outsoles and pull tabs and it's part of Adidas' upcoming outdoor collection.
Pricing isn't available yet, but the Free Hiker drops February 22, just in time to start stocking up for some early spring camping and hiking trips.
