Improved grip and traction

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.

Highly suitable for wet and slippery surfaces

Lightweight and shock-absorbing cushioning by EVA

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 a 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.

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.

Easy to wear

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.
