micoach is all you need to get the results you want.
Out of the box, the quality is apparent. I discovered they are sized a whole size too big....the shoes for technical running should be fitted in the heel and mid-foot while comfortable with no friction. Once I found the right size, I tested them on a swift 12 mile run in the mountains and was surprised at the flexible feel and suppleness of an otherwise beefy shoe. The forefoot mesh flexes laterally across the top of the foot....giving that extra width when stepping down and springing back to a snug fit when the foot is relaxed. Perhaps they could still make a couple millimeters of width in the toe box. My feet are a standard width. The grip of the sole truly couldn't be better. A++. I could literally step anywhere in a pinch based on the demands of a fast technical downhill and the shoe stuck until my foot lifted off the surface. Perhaps Continental should make climbing shoes. The sole otherwise is surprisingly springy and I feel an energy return from what seemed to be a stiffer and comparatively "heavy" shoe. (10oz) I would recommend these over Solomon, LaSportiva or any of the other True Mountain running shoe. The speed laces stay put. Adidas makes a high quality and thought out product.

The shoe is light but feels rugged. The construction is really good, so I doubt it'll come apart any time soon. (I've worn it for a few weeks now, and so far no sign of wear on it.) It doesn't have the type of cushioning you get from running shoes, but it's not supposed to. It's great for it's primary purpose, which is as a hiking shoe. (Don't use it for sports or training at the gym.) As for fit, the length of the shoe was just right for me. The width is slightly on the wide side, but that's better than being slightly on the narrow side. My feet are not too wide, though, so maybe the width is fine for the average person.
I am a track coach at a New England high school. I needed a sleek, comfortable outdoor shoe that can stand up to early spring weather. The Terra Fast has performed better than expected. It even allows me to perform the occasional demonstration of hurdling and triple jumping technique.
I got this shoe for something to wear in the Fall/Winter weather. One of the best features of the shoe is the styling. There is a lot going on with the design but it manages to stay subtle enough that you can wear it with pretty much anything, but still has a few color highlights with the red and yellow to stand out. Overall the fit is roomy. I would recommend your usual size or a 1/2 size down for this model. The width is standard and the forefoot is spacious. Overall the fit is comfortable. It is well padded around the ankle and tongue. It has pretty deep studs for traction but still feels like a regular shoe when walking on flat surface. The Ortholite insoles make a little noise in the heel when stepping down but it may be because they are brand new. Overall I would recommend these shoes if you are looking for a stylish outdoor shoe with great traction.
