Size and fit

Adidas’ Terrex Fast Mid GTX Surround is a fairly true-to-size boot that comes in whole and half-sizes. It is available in standard width for both male and female day hikers. The boot incorporates a speed lacing system to adjust the fit.


This mid-cut hiking boot is equipped with an outsole made of Continental rubber. Its surface is filled with pronounced lugs that render traction on wet and dry surfaces. This material is used in the construction of motorcycle and car tires, making it resistant to wear and tear. Also, the outsole’s front section extends upward to provide extra protection against stubbing.


The Terrex Fast Mid GTX from Adidas provides cushioning and support using a lightweight EVA midsole. The midsole’s sidewall features a series of air channels to enhance underfoot breathability. Moreover, the boot’s Ortholite open-cell foam footbed provides underfoot comfort and arch support. It’s also designed to reduce odor-causing microbes to keep the user’s foot smelling fresh.


The Adidas Terrex Fast Mid GTX Surround’s upper is made of synthetic leather and textile fabric. This combination makes the footgear lightweight and breathable. A Gore-Tex Surround membrane is embedded within the upper to seal water out and allow moisture to escape.

The footwear’s upper features a thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) heel clip for added stability and protection. The front closure includes speed lacing, combination eyelets and a bungee for keeping the extra lace in one place. It comes with a toe cap to reinforce the area. Its padded tongue and collar promote comfort. A pull loop is found at the back for an easy on and off.
