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

Super stiff, laces annoying

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: Runs large

These shoes were really uncomfortable as soon as I put them on. Very stiff, huge crease going into my instep while heel sloshed around really bad. I saw another review here that mentioned the laces were a pain, but thought that I would like them based on similar lace systems I've used. They were really hard to tighten in the lower part, the tight/stiff cables were hard to even grab ahold of and once tightened would slide back pretty easily. Even though they're stretchy, they're also really stiff and when stretched the outer coloured fibres would have a lot of gaps - that's where dust, dirt and mud would get in and render them very stiff and unable to retract back. If the shoe was more flexible and otherwise felt great, I might have put up with the laces because I wanted to use these to walk to work in, and not really hike. So I don't think dirt would have been much of an issue for me. But man, they were so stiff I had the box packed back up within 10 minutes.

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.
