Who should buy the Adidas Terrex Skychaser LT Mid GTX
The Adidas Terrex Skychaser LT Mid GTX is a technical lightweight fast hiking boot best recommended for:
- experienced and novice trail-goers who into recreational day hiking and speed hiking on slick and muddy trails
- outdoor enthusiasts who need a tougher hiking shoe that can handle tough weather conditions and challenging terrains
Impressive level of comfort
Many trail-goers find the Adidas Terrex Skychaser LT Mid GTX immensely comfy. A blogger among them attributes this hominess to the boot’s Boost technology.
The comfort and springy Boost midsole, writes one reviewer, combined with the lightweight construction offers outdoorsy folks hours and hours of comfort without feeling any real fatigue.
Terrex Skychaser LT Mid GTX provides grippy traction
When it comes to traction, this is where the Terrex Skychaser LT Mid GTX shines. The shoe’s outsole provides "solid grip," particularly on slick and muddy inclines and declines, a critic says.
An Adidas Continental sole provides 30% more grip on dry and wet surfaces.
Quite an expensive investment
Owning a pair of this bad boy can be costly. At its MSRP (no discounts applied), it is quite an expensive investment.
But it comes with a reassuring collar. To a footwear pundit, the Skychaser LT Mid GTX has an incredibly supportive ankle zone.
Forefoot section may not for everyone
As far as hiking boots are concerned, this offering from Adidas is among the lightest on the market.
According to a professional gear tester, this boot has a roomy enough toe box. Yet again, the wide fit of the shoe is probably not for everyone.
