Terrex Swift R3: What the box might not tell you
Describing the featured shoe as “what you see is what you get” can be considered detrimental to Adidas. While there is nothing wrong with being impressed by the Terrex Swift R3’s physical features, knowing its unsung capabilities is worth it. The following points are what we mean:
It keeps your heel in place
With the Terrex Swift R3’s deeper rearfoot zone and extra-supportive stock insole (footbed), heel lift is virtually impossible. This remarkable design also prevents underfoot slippage.
It makes strides smoother
Glide-like strides are yours in this speed hiker, thanks to its moderately rockered heel and forefoot zones. This is especially true on level terrain and packed soil.
It is ascent-ready
The shoe’s reinforced-yet-flexible forefoot and grippy chevron lugs make going up low-angled inclines relatively easier. You can even scramble in it over rocky slopes with less effort. For more daring base mountain climbs, check out our approach catalog.
Nice to know
- The featured fast hiker has a waterproof sibling in the Adidas Terrex Swift R3 GTX.
