We will talk about some of the features and technology that is built into the adidas outdoor women's Terrex fast X Mid Gtx trail shoe. So the women's terrex fast X mid Gtx is really going to shine for folks that are looking to go light and fast on the trail. Fast packers through hikers, anybody who is doing general hiking or light weight back packing is going to love this shoe because you are going to get excellent traction in a light weight package that is easy to secure the foot. You are going to get some good fit out of it as well as GORE-TEX protection.
The upper on this shoe is made from synthetic leather and synthetic mesh, keeps the whole shoe very light weight, more often good durability and flexibility as well for comfort and adidas outdoor is using a GORE-TEX fabrics so you have got full water proof protection as well as [breathability] in this shoe.
So the lacing system on this shoe is really going to help with fit as well as your comfort level and adjust ability here. You have got lacing system you are going to notice at the base here you have got these two anchor points right at the bottom of the foot which is where a lot of folks have trouble with fit, so it gives you a point to pull here or loosen depending on what you need, you also see on the side here see your traditional adidas with the three stripe logo.
This is built into the lacing system as well, so this is kind of pulling up around the mid foot and giving a nice wrap when you [sync] the lacing system in.
And the lacing system itself offers some interesting [adjustability] it is kind of a quick lacing system where you will see this thin lace is attached to a pull here and you just kind of pull that and it pulls the whole thing into this little cord [block] which has a switch on it and it can kind of release that to let out on it so it give you a quick adjustable fit while you are on the move as well as just general in out of the shoe and there is a little built in bungee lace here that keeps that pull piece kind of attached there so you don’t have to worry about that flapping around or getting caught or anything.
The out sole of this shoe is using adidas traction so this is a very grippy more durable rubber ask it's gonna be great traction on loose trails, rocky trails, you have got a nice long patter here and you can see they're wrapped it up around the shoe and places where most likely it can need more support and more traction. And you have got some breaking bars here on the heel and this brings us around to probably the most unique piece of the shoe which is going to be the fore motion technology built into the heel and I am going to refer to this as a heel hinge kind of reminds me of a hinge piece where all across the bottom of the shoe its kind of been detached from the rest of the out sole so it can move independently from the rest of the bottom of the shoe.
And where this is really going to make sense is in a heel strike most folks when they are walking especially on a down hill they're landing their heel first so this piece being able to move independently from the rest of the shoe just gives you a little bit more support and balance that you'll be looking for on uneven terrain because it can move independently from the rest of the shoe.
