Who should buy the Adidas Terrex Free Hyperblue Mid

The Terrex Free Hyperblue Mid is a sporty-looking urban hiker that naturally reels in attention with its oversized heel collar. It's for you if:

  • You've been looking for an over-the-ankle trail boot that weighs no more than 500 g per pair.
  • Extra-supportive boots, particularly on descents, are what you need.
  • You're a fan of the Boost midsole and the high amounts of underfoot comfort it provides.
  • Hiking boots that look modern and casual are what you collect.

Who should NOT buy it

For $90 less, you can get so much more (waterproofing AND insulation) in the Columbia Fairbanks Omni-Heat Boot than in the ultra-expensive Adidas Terrex Free Hyperblue Mid. And if you're gunning for a sock-like fit, check out the knit Adidas Terrex Free Hiker instead.

The barely-there Adidas Terrex Free Hyperblue Mid

When it comes to lightness, the Terrex Free Hyperblue Mid is, arguably, the one to beat. Case in point: this bad boy weighs only 210 g per shoe! To paint a more vivid picture of its incredible weightlessness, this mid-top hiking boot, compared with most hiking sandals, is 111 g lighter apiece.

Far from being budget-friendly

If not on sale or without a discount, the Adidas Terrex Free Hyperblue Mid's 220-dollar list price serves as a huge deterrent. Also, if you put its MSRP side-by-side with the average cost of hiking boots, which is $196, you'll understand how expensive the shoe in question really is.

Remarkable stickiness

With its chevron lugs and sawtooth-like protrusions, the featured boot's outsole can latch on to varying surfaces with ease. The Terrex Free Hyperblue Mid has also been reported to produce more than enough grip in wet and snowy conditions.
