Adidas Terrex Eastrail Mid GTX notable features

-The Terrex Eastrail Mid GTX has an upper made of synthetic materials that offer a high level of resistance against damage and abrasion. Inside is a Gore-tex lining - a waterproof fabric designed for all-weather use.

Size and fit

This hiking boot from Adidas is a mid-cut model with a lightly padded tongue and collar for a comfortable fit. The mesh upper is reinforced with rigid textile overlays that hold the shoe up. It also features a traditional lace-up closure for a personalized fit.

Outsole

The Terrex Eastrail Mid GTX has an outsole made of quality rubber. It features an exclusive lug design called "Traxion" which was originally used for football shoes. The hexagonal lugs have a wide, narrow profile for improved grip and traction. The wide spaces between the lugs help with the easy release of mud and debris.

Furthermore, the Traxion sole offers high resistance to slippage, which makes this shoe highly suitable for wet and slippery surfaces.

Midsole

For the midsole, this model uses EVA - a lightweight polymer known for its superior cushioning and shock absorption. However, since ethylene-vinyl acetate has a structure with lower density, it compresses over time which means that it will start providing less support after significant wear. Nonetheless, this material is highly touted for its superior lightweight cushioning.

Upper

Meant for light hiking in the summer and during moderate weather conditions, the Terrex Eastrail Mid has an upper made of synthetic and mesh fabrics. Lining the shoe interior is the Gore-tex membrane that seals out rain or water. This keeps the foot dry even when traversing severely wet grounds. Tough synthetic overlays and additional support structure around the collar enhance the boot's resistance to wear and tear while the pull loop at the back helps with easy slip-on-or-off.

Nice to know

-The Eastrail Mid GTX is part of the Adidas Terrex collection. While these shoes vary in design, cut, and upper, all Terrex shoes feature lightweight cushioning made of EVA, and a high-traction rubber sole using the Traxion compound.
