Who should buy the Adidas Terrex Fast GTX Surround

The Adidas Terrex Fast GTX Surround is a footgear worthy of the trail despite missing the mark in the width category. It is a solid option if you:

  • Prefer a hiking shoe that is built extra lightweight with a level of flexibility to give adventurers a speedy performance in their hikes.
  • Prefer a hiking shoe with a breathable membrane to pump out heat from the inside with every stride.

Excellent grip on the trail

With its hardwearing rubber outsole—a component made in collaboration with Continental—the Terrex Fast GTX Surround gets to provide hikers with enough grip on the trail come rain or shine.

Excellent traction

The outsole’s ability to dig in deep to the softer or looser side of the terrain is thanks to its multi-directional lugs. It extends slightly to the tip of the toe box, serving as the shoe’s bump guard.

Delivers stability on uneven surfaces

This hiking footgear mitigates shock on-ground impact and delivers stability on uneven surfaces with its heavily built midsole. It comes engineered with channels that expel heat, giving the shoe improved breathability.

Supportive and comfortable underfoot cushioning

Adidas designers coupled this cushy layer with a removable sock liner from Ortholite for added support and comfort underfoot.

Provides defenses against scrapes and scratches

The Terrex Fast GTX Surround’s upper is made of abrasion-resistant fabric. It is crafted with protective weldings to bolster the shoe’s defenses against scrapes and scratches. There are also weldings that form the Adidas three stripes on the lateral and medial sides.

Waterproof yet breathable

It has 360-degree waterproofing with adequate breathability all thanks to Gore-Tex’s Surround technology. At its rear end is a sturdy heel clip made of TPU for extra support. Over at its forefoot, on the other hand, is a toe rand for additional bump protection.

Fast and convenient lace-up configurations

Its front closure uses a speed lace system to make lace-up configurations rather fast and convenient. The remainder of these laces may be tucked under the horizontal band located at the shoe’s instep.
