Terrex Trailmaker Mid GTX: A big brother to two others
It should come as no surprise that the featured boot is part of a family, thanks to the “mid” in its name serving as a dead giveaway. Yes, the Terrex Trailmaker bunch is actually a triple threat, with the Terrex Trailmaker and Terrex Trailmaker GTX completing the picture.
The former is the lighter shoe, being non-waterproof and all. It is your no-nonsense companion where utmost mobility is your top priority. The latter, on the other hand, trades (a bit of) lightness for weather protection, which should come in handy whenever moisture enters the fray.
Takeaway: The mid option should be the way to go if extra ankle support is part of your hiking equation, rain or no. Otherwise, it is between the two low-cut alternatives, but you might want to slip on the GTX variant just in case the weather turns for the wet.
