I purchased these shoes after having a entry level trail shoe made by Adidas. Loved the previous shoe, it preformed flawlessly. Only drawback to the shoes is they run narrow in the toe box. I bought them for work. I am a garbage man. I have had them all. Danner, Columbia, Timberland, ect. $250 boots that last 6 months and fail at being waterproof almost instantly. This shoe has a toe guard and Gore-Tex. I wore the soles off the previous shoes without my feet ever getting wet. This shoe is pretty stiff, with great support. I love the true orthotic insole, it helps me fight fatigue since I am on my feet for 7 hours.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Fritz G Replacement Laces?
Great shoes, the speed lace system is impossible to find in ANY stores if you have to replace it. You have to contact the company that makes the shoes for Adidas. This company is AGRON and the number is 1-800-966-7697. They were very good to work with and sent a replacement lace system out free of charge.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Toasted Toad Great hiking shoe
I just completed my thru hike of the Appalachian Trail. I purchased the Terrex Fast X as a replacement shoe in Daleville, VA and finished my journey with them on Mt Katahdin. Great shoe excellent grip on rocks and dry quickly after becoming wet. I would highly recommend this shoe. I will be wearing them on the PCT next summer.

Absolutely the best hiking shoe I ever owned. Came from the Merrel brand, needed something less sneaker like, but not a full blown hiking shoe with all the clunkyness. This thing feels perfect the minute you put in on, no breaking in necessary. Good job Adidas!

Rated 5 out of 5 by MAs World Great performance and looks!
I am a carpenter and occasional hiker.
Got these because they felt real good in the REI store and they looked very cool too ( got the dk green/black), go great with my camo and army green stuff!
The more I wear them the more I like them, they fit perfect (I am an 11-1/2 D and that's what I got and they fit! Great support, but feel very light!
I reach for them in my closet, amongst many other high end boots, they are currently my favorites. The lacing system is very nice, they cinch up evenly with pretty much one pull, and they loosen up for removal very easily too, this is a feature that you appreciate a few days after you purchase these!
Great hiking shoes, I hope they never change them, I'm buying another pair right away!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by J_A_K_E Awesome Shoe!
I love this shoe. I work on my feet all day as well as hike around the trails near my house and this shoe is incredible. I commute by bike in the PNW and my feet have never gotten wet in the rain. Super comfortable. They don't breathe as well as a regular sneaker, but the antimicrobial treatment to the insoles works wonders and they never smell. The reason I', giving four stars instead of 5 is because the laces broke on the first hike. I tied a knot in them and they lasted a little while and broke again. Only on one shoe. They've lasted with two knots in them for a good while now and don't hinder the performance, so I still think they are absolutely great.

Rated 1 out of 5 by jjrjjr2 Don't Buy this shoe! Very painful on your feet!
I can't believe the rave reviews on this shoe. I listened to them, and now I have very expensive shoes I can't wear without pain. I don't have wide feet, but the narrowness of this shoe causes me intense pain. The problem is I didn't notice anything from initially walking around my house. Once I had them on for an hour and had already taken the tags off and walked outside I started feeling the pain. This is a real shame because the shoes look great and other than causing the pain in my feet they appear to be well made. Walk around your house for at east an hour and leave the tags on so that you can return them if you feel any pain. I can't be the only person who has had this problem unless something is defective with this shoe.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Joseal50 Excellent for those who wear orthodics.
I own a pair in black and now I'm buying a pair in green. Great toe protection and solid heel cup. This shoe keeps your foot comfortable and and tight, no foot play.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Tom Terrific Stiched seam in upper digs into side of forefoot
I looked at a lot of different hiking shoes and boots over the last several months. My goal was to find the best, highest quality lightweight hiking shoe/boot on the market. Price was not an issue. I was willing to pay top dollar for a hiking shoe/boot that would allow me to comfortably hike and/or light backpack 20 miles a day, day after day.
I've been wearing Adidas footwear for 40 years - Always liked their running shoes and soccer shoes. I currently own a pair of Sequence running shoes that are extremely well made and very comfortable. When I discovered Adidas also had a light weight waterproof hiking shoe, the Terrex FastX GTX, I couldn't wait to buy a pair and hit the trail.
Well, yesterday my wait was over when I laced-up my new Adidas Terrex FastX GTX shoes and hit the trails at Clifton Gorge and John Bryan State Park. I was elated my first six miles as I scampered over trails in and out of the gorge. But my elation soon turned to concern when I started feeling pain on the right side of my right foot - about an inch from my little toe.
I took off the shoe and discovered that the stitched seam on the textile upper was digging into the side of my forefoot, about an inch from my little toe. I can stick my hand inside the shoe and feel the protruding stitched seam, but can't get to it because of the Gortex lining. I also discovered my left foot is sore in the same place and for the same reason. It's just not as bad as the right shoe.
My poor rating of this shoe is due to the seam stitching issue. I'm going to contact Adidas to see if this can be fixed. If not I will try to return them for a refund.
