The Terrex Free Hiker dropped today and this is the first time adidas has put their BOOST technology together with their iconic Primeknit into a hiking boot. This is a development that has many people, myself included, pretty excited.
These days, if I’m not wearing the Adidas Sobakov then you’ll find me in a pair of Boosts because they’re just that good. And when it comes to hiking boots I’m EXTREMELY picky. I want ankle support first and foremost but I also want a lightweight shoe with excellent traction.
The Terrex Free Hiker combines all of these features I’m looking for into a brilliant hiking shoe. The water-resistant Primeknit upper is flexible enough to remain comfortable all day and isn’t nearly as heavy as most of the other options on the market.
The cushioned BOOST midsole offers that transfer of energy you’re looking for which will enable you to pound the trails all day and night and stay fresh without all of the shock being absorbed by your knees and joints. The Continental Rubber Outsole on the Terrex Free Hiker is built to give you ultimate traction in any weather, from the dryest desert to the wettest conditions.
Honestly, this is a no-brainer for me. I’ve been hooked on Adidas Boost technology since I picked up my first pair 2 or 3 years ago and I haven’t looked back since. This will be my hiking shoe of choice for the foreseeable future and if you’re about that 3 Stripe Life then it’ll be yours as well. It just dropped today and you can pick it up right now on Huckberry by following that link below!

The Free Hiker will come in several anthracite-based colorways that will be released next week. The Boost technology in the heel is the ultimate shock absorber which means you’ll be able to pound the trails further and for longer than ever before. Keep an eye out for this game changer next week!
