Who should buy the Adidas Terrex Trailmaker Mid

The Adidas Terrex Trailmaker Mid is a lightweight and orthotic-friendly hiking boot best recommended for:

  • avid outdoor adventurers and trail runners who are transitioning to hiking
  • speed hiking and daily walking in rugged and muddy paths 

Adequately rigid heel counter for a reliable support

Designed with speed in mind, the Terrex Trailmaker Mid will propel your every step as if you were in a pair of supportive runners.

With its cushioned yet solidly built ankle cuff and adequately rigid heel counter, you will get double the support in this bad boy.

Terrex Trailmaker Mid deliver sufficient slip 

The lugs on its outsole deliver sufficient slip and skid resistance, while the shoe’s rockered construction makes strides over flat surfaces easier.

It is part of RunRepeat’s most affordable hiking boots.

Not the best shoe for rainy days

The shoe in question might not provide the best protection on hikes in wet conditions. One reviewer said that the Terrex Trailmaker Mid keeps the feet dry on rainy days but only at around 90%.

For such endeavors, look into its waterproof sibling—the Terrex Trail Mid GTX.

Lacks a proper heel brake 

While its Traxion outsole is grippy enough on different types of terrain, its performance on descents might be put into question as it lacks a proper heel brake.

Adidas’ Terrex Trailmaker Mid has another sibling in the Terrex Trailmaker Mid COLD.RDY. This variant is fully insulated with a level of water repellency, making it ideal for winter hikes in mildly damp conditions. 

Supportive around the ankle 

The hominess of the Adidas Terrex Trailmaker Mid is the star of the show among a great multitude.

According to numerous sources, this hiking boot is mighty supportive around the ankle.

Lightweight and sticky outsole

The Terrex Trailmaker Mid is amazingly light, many hikers claim. To several wearers, this boot is among Adidas’ finest when it comes to looks.

Its heavy-duty outsole is pretty sticky, say some of those who have tested it.

Quicker break-in period

It loosens up and conforms to the foot quickly, based on a decent number of reviews.

But the toe room could be roomier around the toe box, a couple of testers say. 

Adidas Terrex Trailmaker Mid is a breathable hiking shoe 

The boot comes with a stretchy ripstop mesh upper that is breathable. This keeps the interior comfy and forgiving as compared to rigid leather construction. 

A welded TPU reinforcement in the shoe ensures durability and lateral support. The mid-cut design of the shoe enhances lateral stability.
