The Adidas Terrex Voyager CC is a low-cut hiker with sizes available for both men and women. Its low-profile design promotes flexibility of movement in the ankle. In addition, it has a four-eyelet lacing system that gives the wearer a snug fit even underwater.
Water hiking can be a little dangerous because you constantly have to deal with slippery rocks and wet surfaces. Thus, your shoes need to have a solid grip and traction. For this reason, Adidas has used the Stealth rubber outsole in the Terrex Voyager water shoes. Widely used in approach and climbing footwear, Stealth is among the leading performance shoe rubber in the world. It’s very sticky, durable, and has a gummy-like texture which allows for increased flexibility.
Much of the lightness of the Terrex Voyager water shoes can be attributed to its midsole which is made of molded EVA - a type of foam that is lightweight but very durable. EVA has a balanced mix of softness and firmness, which creates a supportive and cushiony platform for the foot.
The shoe upper is formed using thin air mesh fabric. Aside from being highly breathable, it dries up really fast so your feet don’t get soaked for too long after getting out of the water. The mesh material has really tiny holes to protect the foot from small dirt and debris. On the sides are synthetic overlays that help keep the structure of the shoe, adding support and stability. This shoe also features a sidewall drain system that prevents the pooling of water within the shoe.
Completing the upper is a four-eyelet lacing system that will keep the shoe from slipping off.
-The Adidas Climacool technology is a propriety fabric innovation that combines performance fabrics, open mesh, and ventilation. This is created to provide a breathable yet protective environment for the foot. It is also used in Adidas sports apparel and similar products.
