Among the key innovations of 2019 in the Adidas outdoor collection is a new generation of utility shoes from the Adidas Terrex Skychaser series. According to the developers, the Terrex Skychaser XT Mid GTX version is perfect for both speed hiking and cross-country running, including foothill and mountain conditions. The manufacturer distinguishes in the new product a durable and waterproof upper, high shock-absorbing properties, as well as a durable and tenacious outsole with a universal tread pattern..
To create the upper part of the Terrex Skychaser XT Mid GTX low shoes, mainly reinforced nylon was used, which is additionally protected by overlays of elastic TPU of different densities. The lacing system of the novelty is realized with the help of a pulling elastic cord, as well as two pairs of metal hooks and three pairs of loops made of high-density reinforced nylon fabric. Inside the low shoes, a Gore-Tex Extended Comfort membrane is used.
The second-generation Skychaser midsole features a Continental TPU-blend outsole, a midsole of full-length Boost cushioning foam, a flexible, supportive TPU full-length Pro Moderator shank, and an anatomical internal arch and heel support that is made of shock-absorbing foam and a thin layer of sweat-wicking fabric. The approximate average weight of a men’s pair of low shoes is about 750 grams.
The Adidas Terrex Skychaser XT Mid GTX Hiking Shoes will be available in both men’s and women’s styles in a variety of colorways to choose from. The suggested retail price for the mid-shaft version is $225 or more.
