    Not enough support, not durable

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

    Lasted 2 days of Ticaboo canyons which are admittedly tough on all gear. I've got holes in the sides, the thin laces both wore through and broke mid canyon, and generally these things broke in really fast and are not stiff enough in the sole in my opinion. not suitable for canyoneering or light climbing / descending where you need a stiff shoe, but they are really comfortable and may work in other situations

    After seeing how stoked Expert Brennan K. was on these shoes, and climbing with him i decided i needed to give them a try. I just want to say these went above and beyond my expectation for Adidas approach shoes. The toe box is nice and defined. It also features the sticky stealth rubber which makes you keep you climbing shoes in the bag. At the same time they walk around like a sneaker and for sure pass the bar test. This is my favorite approach shoe on the market. I usually am a size 10 casual shoe size, got the 9.5's which are a bit large. I would size down a full size with these.

    Great shoes for many uses

    • Size Bought: 9

    I got these after a recommendation from a friend that is an Adidas Outdoors Ambassador. I was looking for a light shoe that would excel on the rocky approaches, on the trails to the crags, and day to day use. Yeah I just got them, but have already put them to a decent test. They are extremely comfortable around town and lounging in from the last several days that I have been wearing them. They are light and extremely breathable which is what I was looking for and they have an insane amount of grip from the stealth rubber. From the outdoor aspect, I have some longer trips planned where I wanted to have a lighter yet breathable shoe and these should do the trick. I wore them up the first part of Mt Whitney to the snow line and they did great on the trail, on the rocks, and over the stream crossings. They appear to be constructed very well and I am excited to see how they hold up in the long term. As far as wetness, they did get damp from the snow and water, but they dried out quickly and didn't leave my feet feeling swampy.

    Solid Shoe

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

    I bought these after reading several reviews. Wasnt sure about Adidas in the approach game, but they are super good. I wear them working everyday, and need them to grip and not get torn up. They look great after a year. I would definitely get another pair. Only complaint is the stick seems to have gone away slightly as of late, but still a great shoe.

    Good all around shoe

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

    I am giving this shoe a "C" grade because I had an initial issue with the sole de-laminating. Adidas was great with getting a replacement pair out and so far no issues! I will report if something comes up.

    The tread is great, and the stealth rubber sole are super sticky. Once you dial in the laces you can hike in them all day and are great for more technical sections of trail or scrambles on approach. Also these are great for slacklining with a flat and sticky bottom.

    Great Shoe

      Ordered these before a trip to Vancouver Island. Love the stealth rubber at the bottom. Definitely a plus when scrambling up slick rocks at places like Myra Falls. Did some mountain biking, definitely not a shoe to just throw on for that (I've got the scar to prove it), but it's a great other than that. Super comfy and light.

      Great alternative to Guide Tennies

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

      Comes with the trusty Stealth rubber. The sole is not too stiff, very similar to the old classic greenish grey Guide Tennie.

      Very stable, tested it when hiking to routes in Zion and IC. Felt as comfortable as trainers when walking on the road for miles after missing the shuttle.

      Fairly low profile toe box, sized it up a bit to compensate. (I prefer a looser fit especially after having climbing shoes on all day and don't like to size approach shoes for climbing. If it's hard I'll be wearing climbing shoes anyway).

      Lace issue

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
      • Fit: True to size

      Bought these in Chamonix for easy rock routes and am quite disappointed . Not nearly as sticky as Guide Tennies and the toe block folds as one in holds so does not feel smeary or precise. Scarpa Vit. that my partner was using looked better. The worst I am afraid was on the descent where the material eye loops base sewn into the boot produces a lump which sits over my little toe bone, so after an hours descent is very painful. Not too impressed as I thought they would be great

      No break in!

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      These shoes fit great right off the bat! I ordered the size 10.5 and they fit true to size but if you have a narrow foot it may be a good idea to go half a size down. I took these on a mellow hike up to a waterfall and they held up great through sand, mud, and snow melt! The toe seems tacky enough to accomplish any approach and the Traxion sole was perfect for hoping off rocks on the descent with out any pain. I also like the molded rubber tongue, it was great for keeping scree and sticks out!

      No break in!

      Meh..

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I have had these for a few months and want to like them but there are a few issues. The tounge has a tendency to fold under and it is hard to fit my fat hands inside to straighten it out. The traxion rubber is so-so but nothing compared to the stealth rubber of 5-10. Adidas bought out 5-10 so maybe they will be using some stealth rubber soon. I have used them mostly for biking because I have a better pair of shoes for approach.

      I am returning them for the solo swift, hopefully they don't have the same issue



      These were quite comfortable though

      Great Approach Shoe!

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I have had many approach shoes over the years and I am very impressed with the Adidas Terrex Solo. I have taken them through a summer of long and short approaches in dry and wet conditions and they have performed very well. I like the wide platform, versatile fit options, and the low to the ground ride.

      Unapproachable

        I cannot attest to the durability or break in period of these shoes as I returned them as soon as possible.
        The rubber is far from sticky: as hard as I tried I could not stick to any angle. They seemed quite uncomfortable out of the box due to one of the lasts being slanted down and in. The sizing is also quite off compared to any other climbing footwear. I usually wear a 10.5 or an 11, so I ordered both of these sizes. Neither of them were anywhere close to fitting. I generally climb in 9.5 pre-downsized shoes, so I am accustomed to a tight fit but honestly, I swam in these and there is no way they would have performed satisfactorily while I scrambled and buildered. Lets face it, no matter how nice a shoe is, it isn't nice if it doesn't fit. I would like to give these shoes a second chance, but only under the stipulation that I got them for free. Sorry Adidas, but you missed the mark on this one.

        Best approach shoes I've found

          Let me start by saying I've tried a lot of different shoes for approach, and this is the first pair that I've been completely happy with. I tried New Balance trail runners (squishy sole had terrible grip scrambling), La Sportiva Boulders (unbelievably tight toe, even upsized 2 sizes), Patagonia Karakorams (painfully stiff upper that stubbornly refused to break in), and Merrell Trail Gloves (no underfoot protection for walking on scree). The Adidas fit true to size, have a beautifully grippy sole, stiff enough sole that your feet don't get beat up by scree, and the Adiprene is stiff enough that you keep your footing scrambling up rocks. They took almost no breaking in (I wore them to work 1 day before a weekend climbing). The coolest feature is the foam tongue top... it's hard to explain, but since its shape is fixed, it keeps the tongue from bunching up or sliding to the side. Oh, and the price was hard to beat at $65 on sale!

          Overall, I'm quite pleasantly surprised by Adidas' foray into real outdoor gear.

          From user experience, is this a shoe that could be worn comfortably off trail and indoors? I'd definitely use them for rocky walks to good hammock spots and short hikes, but these would be my daily shoe to the office as well.

          Are these shoes able to be re-soled? Climbing grand teton this summer and the mountain guide co is very picky about what shoes they allow and suggest getting them resoled to their standards ahead of time. Thanks

          I wouldn't be too concerned. Generally they are going to be recommending a vibram sole. However these feature the stealth sole featured on many great climbing shoes, it is a great sticky sole and perfect for either the OS or Upper Exum route they will be taking you on. If you have any other questions on approach shoes or getting your gear list together, please let me know. The Tetons's are my favorite range in the world and I would be happy to help you get ready for a successful trip.



          thanks!
