    The Terrex Fast R Mid goes the extra mile … so maybe you can, too.

    The faster you ascend a trail, the more stability and support you need from your boot. The waterproof Adidas Outdoor Terrex Fast R Mid GTX Hiking Boot provides said stability and support in spades with FORMOTION technology and a slew of other tech, such as a TRAXION outsole and speed lacing. The end result is a lightweight workhorse with a sleek silhouette and an obsession for moving quickly.
    • Gore-Tex Extended Comfort membrane maintains breathability while keeping your foot dry
    • Speed lacing stays snug all day and makes tightening easy
    • FORMOTION technology located in the boot's heel adapts to uneven terrain, alleviates pressure on your knees, and reduces sole angle velocity for a more natural step
    • Torsion Bar technology is a lightweight shank that provides midfoot support, control, and protection without adding weight
    • Protection plate protects the forefoot from potential encounters with sharp rocks or sticks
    • TRAXION outsole is lugged specifically for gripping the trail, with speed in mind
    • Item #ADA0013

    Everyday Hiker

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: US 9.5

    I first tried the Adidas Terrex Fast Mid GTX about a year ago and they quickly became my go to shoe / boot for everyday urban hikes. Well made, with a fit about 1/2 size up from my other brands of hikers, the durability, fit and comfort are as good as it gets. Just got my second pair and expect to wear them often through fall and winter here in western PA

    Highly Awesome

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 10.5

    It's hard to write shoe reviews because fit is 80% of the experience you're going to have. That said, if you have a wedge shaped foot like mine, narrow heel/wide toe box fit should be good. Fit aside, the mid height is perfect for those like me that tend to favor low cuts but might want a little extra height for the elements or support. Lacing system is not perfect, it could use a lace lock for the forefoot that is independent of the upper one for better tension control across the whole foot, and the lace is a bit long overall and hangs off the side even when tucked into the loop. Continental outsole seems nice and tacky, and overall grip in loose/mud seems to be above average. Overall they give the feel of being highly supportive without feeling highly restrictive. Going to buy at least one more pair before they change them. Also of note,the blue color looks WAY better in person than the pics. The accents look white in the pics but in reality are grey, much better and less Euro looking than they appear.

    Awesome boot, slim fit.

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: 9.5

    I love these boots, I just wish I had a chance to try them on before making a final purchase; I didn't buy on Backcountry, return period expired, and I was hoping they'd break in enough to not be an issue, but about 6 months later they are still just a little too snug.

    I usually wear a 9 or a 10 depending on the fit of the shoe. I bought these in 9.5 as that is my usual fit size. One of my feet is also slightly larger, which makes shoe shopping a constant challenge, especially when buying online. I would say that these fit a little on the small side. If I wear anything but light/thin socks, then these are just too cramped for my tastes, particularly on my pinky toe and at the widest part of my foot. I will probably try to sell these on Craigslist and go for a size 10 so I can wear thicker socks when desired.

    That said, the Continental outsole provides amazing traction. They really nailed it with this one, freaking incredible. I've worn them on snow and ice, loose gravel, dry and wet river rock, in creekbeds, mud, etc. and I have never had issues with traction.

    I love the quick lace system, it's nice for getting them on/off quickly. They stay tight, never had them slip. The tongue is a little stiff until broken in, but not an issue after the first couple outings.

    Overall these are fantastic boots. Very lightweight, very comfortable yet supportive, surprisingly durable given their weight. I would recommend them.

    Adidas Fast R GTX hiking boots

    Putting the Fast Rs to the test! After a 3 day break-in period I took them to San Miguel Mountain in San Diego. Love these shoes! They do run a bit narrow and you have to find the right tension(lacing system) for your feet. I used these boots with Superfeet Blue inserts and hiking socks from Sports Authority. I would not recommend if you have a wide foot.

    Prior shoes were Salewas and Merrells.

    Great Shoe

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size

    A recent purchase, these shoes already feel broken in. Quite possibly the best trail shoe I have owned. Great rugged sole with supportive yet light weight uppers. The quick lace adjustment is easy to use and as advertised. Just completed a 20 mile back pack with them and they did great on rocks and creek crossings as well. I have been using low cut hikers for a long time but I just may be changing my tune. Truly comfortable.

    Not completely satisfied.

      Not a dialed in fit as I had hoped. Also the waterproof specs did not meet my expectations. I have trudged through some streams in these hikers and have come out with wet feet, even just hiking in the rain my feet end up wet every time. They are fairly comfortable but they tend to rub the outside of my foot near my pinky toe. Also, the lacing system if convenient and quick but it doesn't dial in the fit as you could do with normal laces. Maybe my feet have the wrong shape for these hikers. I've thought about it and am convinced that I could not go a half size up or down. My foot also moves from side to side on uneven terrain while hiking.

      I hoped for a bit more in this hiker but was let down unfortunately.

      Adidas Terrex FAST R, Italian Volcanos

      Having trouble updating my review, but the FAST R slider lacing system couldn't take the micro-pulverized ash. Locked up the slider. Maybe a manufacturer's defect, not sure. 5 stars gone, 4 stars for now. But, the durability was great as I put them through the wringer and they held up to abrasion and scuffing. Still great traction; best I have ever had!

      Rubbed me wrong

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

      the mid GTX had a very rigid tongue and as i wore it around the house it was very uncomfortable.

      i did purchase the same model but in the low version and it is awesome.

      Wave of the Future

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      Here we go for the Terrex FAST R GTX, as I have had them for three months now, with several hikes in rain, some heat and various terrain.

      -Fit is true to size. I am a 10 1/2, with a mid volume foot. They fit like, well, glove for you foot.

      -Lacing system is similar to lots of other brands. They use a little slider thingy so you can dial in the lacing from the toe box to the top. The little button that depresses in order to slide the "laces" does not work very well on mine. A minor annoyance overall.

      -Amazing traction, in nearly any condition or surface. It's like magic. Down hill braking is excellent, the sides grip well during class 3/4 scrambling, almost like an approach shoe with randing. Excellent on scree, rock, water rock, you name it. Yes, on really rugged trails, you will feel sharp-edged rocks; but these are basically sneakers on steroids and NOT a mountaineering boot, so that is to be expected. But even though I could feel the sharp rocks and stuff, they didn't bother me at all...even after long days, no bruising or sore feet.

      -When I took them out of the box and saw the construction and light weight, I thought they would wear down quickly like my Inov8 360 Para's did. Not so! These are WAY tougher and much better on your feet than those overpriced hunks of junk.

      -Ankle support is good for how light this hybrid hiker is. I found myself not worrying about rolling my ankles...they will hold up, even under a load.

      Overall, I love this "boot", or super sneaker, whatever it is. I find that I go faster and harder for longer wearing the Terrex. No, this is not a Viagra review, but these Adidas do make me feel younger in that 'special way'. I love them. The start of a beautiful relationship...

      Love it!

        I am delighted with this boot. They are extremely light, but provide excellent ankle support and cushion. I am 6-1 and weigh 220 lbs. The soles have incredible grip. It took a while for me to to get used to the wire lacing system, but now I find it far superior to traditional laces. My only concern is what happens if they break? I had to replace the insoles with Super Feet(orange) insoles because I need additional support for heel problems. I have to do this with every shoe/boot I wear. I've had numerous comments too about their appearance: Very cool looking.

        Hey there. I simply cut the slider thingy off after the volcanic ash destroyed it. I then tied a knot on the fixed end that runs through the eyelet....then pull the opposite tight like a normal shoe and tie them. This works actually quite well as the laces are of a material that is striated and therefore stays tied.

        Are these boots going to stretch in width at all? I just recently got a pair and they do run narrow. I'm okay if I leave the laces almost all the way out, but it would be nice if they gave a little over time.

        I see that there is a Fast R (this shoe)...

        I see that there is a Fast R (this shoe) and a Fast X edition of this show. Both seem very similar. Can you tell me what the difference is and if one is "better" than the other?

        Are these waterproof?
