Move fast in the mountains.
With the Adidas Women's Terrex Fast R Hiking Shoe on your foot, you can expect greater agility, performance, and comfort on the way up and on the way back down. The elastic adiPrene+ midsole material gives you a more dynamic toe-off on the way up while Formotion sliding plates reduce downhill impact for a more natural strike on the way back down. Better still, the grippy Traxion outsole was developed by the rubber experts at Continental for maximum traction on wet and dry terrain.
- Synthetic mesh upper is lightweight, abrasion resistant, and highly breathable
- Molded OrthoLite sock liner is specifically shaped to fit the female foot for greater comfort and enhanced climate control
- AdiPrene+ midsole material in the forefoot absorbs shock and has high elasticity for a dynamic toe-off
- Formotion midsole utilizes sliding plates to reduce horizontal impact forces, providing a smoother and more natural strike
- Forefoot plate protects your foot from sharp rocks and uneven terrain
- Drawcord-style laces are quick, secure, and won't come untied
- Lightweight construction allows each shoe to weigh just 11 ounces
- Advanced Traxion outsole with Continental Rubber compound provides a super secure grip on wet or dry surfaces

I heart Adidas
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Fit: True to size
I have put these shoes to the test. I hike every weekend and do multi-day trips each month. These shoes are incredibly light and comfortable. I don't think the laces are terribly difficult to master. They stay put and don't un-lace like traditional shoe laces. Also they dry quickly if they get wet. I would rather have this then try and go the goretex route and pretend they are waterproof. I bought a half size larger to accommodate the beating my feet take on the trail.
Great shoe except for the lace system
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
- Fit: True to size
Because of the laces, I would not recommend purchasing this shoe. I loved this shoe for its weight and comfort on a three week trip that included a seven day trek in many hiking conditions (dust, rocks, pebbles, stone; steep ascents and descents; wet and dry) with an 11kg pack. However, the lace system was a significant drawback. On day two of my trek, after the laces had been exposed to a significant amount of dust and dirt, the laces became difficult to use. At one point I thought that I would have to cut them to take my foot out of the shoe. I nursed the problem with some patience and body glide for the rest of the trip.
+ Lightweight. I switched to these from a beefy pair of Vasque Gore-Tex boots. The Fast-R?s were my first experience with lightweight hikers. When I first tried out the lightweight hiker concept, I hit the trail in western VA with my trail runners. However, quickly found that I didn?t have enough lateral support. I compare switching to lightweight hikers to getting a lighter wheel set for my road bike. I immediately noticed and enjoyed the shed weight.
+ No break-in required. I did the unthinkable and bought these the week before leaving on my seven day trek. The only hotspots I experienced were on the outside of my pinky toes during descents. I avoided blisters with moleskin.
+ Dried quickly. After rolling into camp in the pouring rain, I was the only person to start the next morning with dry feet. My other hiking partners had Gore-Tex boots that required more than a night in a cold tent to dry.
+ Stable and nimble. Compared to my hiking boots, I was able to balance more easily on technical hiking terrain. I have a weak left ankle, therefore was worried about lack of ankle support. However, I found that the lighter shoe didn?t pull on my ankle like my hiking boots because I had better control of my foot.
