I bought these for my husband because we usually buy cheap Adidas from Kohls and got tired of them falling apart. Yes the price may make you think twice but these are his favorite shoes! He was very impressed with how incredibly comfortable they are. My husband has "feet like fire" as he puts it, so ventilation is extremely important to him--he claims Adidas keeps his feet coolest. I guess I should have bought two pairs because I'll happily pay for his feet to be happy.

I used these on a rim-to-rim Grand Canyon hike and a 4 day backpacking trip in the Sierras. Excellent support, traction, and durability. Did well in the rain, too, although they finally got soaked. I wish they came in a more narrow width.

Great looking and fitting shoe. Get some DC below the ankle black socks to complete the look.

I love the lacing system, super simple and quick. I was worried at first that it wouldn't hold up but I've run/hiked/walked near a 100 miles in these and they have held up. I love the look and the feel. Took me about a day to break them in, simply wore them to work.

Great shoes. I use them as fast hikers. I tried running in them - they were too hard and stiff. I'm not a huge fan of the speed laces, but the fit and construction of the shoe for light hiking is perfect. The toe area is well reinforced and the shape and fit of the shoes is great. Good fit in the heel area and plenty of room for toes.

These are the 4th pair of Adidas "trainer" type shoes I've tried, and all had fit problems of one form or another. Shame, because they look so much cooler than every other brand I've seen. Like several others reviewers have complained, these slipped in the right heel, and had a constricting toe box. Bizarre that a major company would release so many shoes that fit so many people so badly, but I can only guess that they fit others great.

Very good quality shoe. Fits tighter than any other shoe I've purchased from Zappos of same size and width. Don't like the quick close mechanism versus regular laces. Less control.

Bought a pair of these, there was something wrong with the left shoe. Where the seams met inside there was a large bump that dug into my foot. Returned them for a second pair and had the same issue.

There's a lot to like about this shoe. The styling is excellent and the shoe looks as good in person as it does on the website. The quality of the materials used also seems to be first rate from the tongue to the tread. Though relatively light and athletic in its feel, I'd definitely say this shoe is stiffer and more substantial than the typical trail running shoes which are so popular today. I would put it more in the category of a light hiking boot. Unfortunately, one minor manufacturing defect kept me from being able to wear these. The right shoe felt great on my foot. The left shoe, however, created an almost immediate hot spot right where that little bone protrudes from the outside edge of your foot about an inch behind the base of your little toe. Further investigation revealed that the thin upper liner on the interior of the shoe was folded over at that point to match the contour of the upper. That fold and the adhesives used to hold it in place were the culprits. The right shoe didn't have that pronounced of a protrusion and, if anything, my right foot is a hair wider than the left. I even ordered a second pair thinking this was likely a one off defect, but believe it or not, the left shoe of the second pair was exactly the same. Oh well. I can't wear them but feet are so different, it still may be well worth it for you to give a try.

It's a beautiful shoe but narrow around the toe box. Couldn't go a half size larger because it would be too long.

I really wanted to like these. They look great! They have a very hard rubber support on the outside of the shoe at the arch that make these very uncomfortable for me. The 12s were too small. My heel came up on the 13s. They both went back. Too bad...great looking shoe.

I bought those shoes after having had two pairs of Merrells which both suffered the same defect. The glue on the Merrell, on the nose of the show unglued and the leather separated from the rubber sole. That was very disappointing as it happened both times. Anyhow Bough the Adidas Terrex after I had already had an Outdoor AX2 pair which oddly showed defects in the glue that bonds the sole to the upper shell. After the great reviews and the awesome and rugged look. One of the most comfortable shoes I have ever worn - maybe the best, honestly. Strong fabric and indestructible shell.The grip is fantastic and have never had a slip no mater of the surface. Until one day I saw a large, about 3" hole, along the right side between the fabric and the rubber sole - right along the edge where the fabric meets the rubber on the front right side. I was crushed. I checked the hole closely and realized that the glue right there simply was not holding well and inner structure was ready to come out. Only after about 30 days of use! The shoes suffered the same faith as my previous Merrells. I hike often and love the outdoors having gone through ice and desert, rocks and grass around the world. Nothing is wrong with my feet. Since then I have been using only Keen hiking shoes and never encountered such a defect again due the way the Keen is made. They are ugly but super strong and ungluing cannot occur due to the design it seems. But again they are very ugly shoes. I am sorry for Adidas as I really liked them!

Brands I'd also recommend: Doesn't matter….Make sure the gluing is well done…Check it closely!

These are the most uncomfortable shoes I've ever owned. I kept wearing them thinking I would break them in, but after 3 months I just had to stop wearing them. Very disappointed in Adidas!

Potentially great shoe except for apparent production issues with the left shoe in particular. My specific pair had a seriously annoying squeak in the left heel and a 'flat' feeling in the left heel cushioning. Others on adidas.com have complained about this squeak. I also noticed that some reviewers have complained of a protruding nub inside the left shoe that caused irritation, although my pair didn't have this problem. I'm sad to return this show as it feels extremely well built, has great support, and looks great. I'm on the fence about getting a replacement pair based upon the apparent quality control issues.

After 6 months with some trail running, I put mine through the wash machine. There is now a persistent squeak in one sole. Very annoying and I don't know how to fix it.
