Lightweight hiker with lofty aspirations.
The Adidas Outdoor Women's Terrex Fast X High GTX Hiking Boot is the answer for ladies who like to move fast on the trail but need something burly and supportive enough to handle technical hikes. It's much lighter than old school hiking boots, yet still offers ample cushioning and support, and it utilizes Gore-Tex to keep your feet dry when the weather turns on you.
Adidas made this boot lower to the ground this year for greater stability and a more natural stride. The Formotion heel unit offers enhanced motion control and downhill comfort, while the high-rebound adiPRENE+ forefoot increases efficiency to keep you moving forward. The molded Ortholite sockliner offers cushioning and a secure, comfy fit. A Gore-Tex membrane keeps water out while allowing moisture vapor to escape so your feet don't get too soggy. It's rounded out with a Continental rubber outsole for extraordinary grip so you have sure-footed confidence wherever you roam.

I was so happy to find these boots! I was looking for solid, synthetic, gore-tex boots for some light winter hiking and snowshoeing. Right out of the box these were comfortable and warm. I took them on a week-long trip to Alaska where they kept my feet completely warm and dry on snowy trails and rainy trails, yet the were light enough to wear casually around town in the rain/snow. Even when splashing through coastal walks, rain, and walking on frozen water they kept me cozy. I was completely impressed! One thing that really let me down however was how fragile the rubber toe of them turned out to be after 1 snowshoe trail. I used them with my Crescent Moon snowshoes that have a very soft rubber binding and somehow the rubber on the toes of these boots got mangled. There are so many scuffs and scratches from just one light (flat trail about 1 mile long) snowshoe use. I was really surprised that the rubber on the boot wasn't more tough--especially since they are so pricey. I absolutely will still use these, they are great overall, but I worry that they will get very worn with any snowshoe use, which is one of the main reasons I wanted these.
