Adidas Terrex Free Hiker returns with Parley for the Oceans technology
Good for the mountains. Great for the oceans. Transforming pollution into performance, the new Terrex Free Hiker Parley combines signature Boost technology with Parley Ocean Plastic yarn – a material made from upcycled waste plastic intercepted from shorelines and found around coastal areas.
Created for lasting comfort in the mountains and commutes across the city, the Terrex Free Hiker Parley allows outdoor creators to effortlessly step between urban and natural landscapes without leaving a trace.
“We believe that through sport, we have the power to change lives and our latest shoe in the Terrex collection does just that. The Terrex Free Hiker Parley represents both sustainability and performance, empowering you to get outside and challenge yourself, without challenging the environment.” Says Tim Janaway, General Manager, adidas Outdoor.
The Free Hiker is the first hiking boot with Boost technology that offers endless energy-return cushioning and adaptability on rocky surfaces, built to survive the toughest elements. Its water repellent Primeknit upper made with Parley ocean plastic provides sock-like comfort, stretching and flexing naturally to all shapes of foot. Weighing only 400g (men’s) and 340g (women’s), it is breathable and lightweight, while protection is provided by a mid-cut profile and Continental rubber outsole for grip on any terrain.
Designed for positive movement on land. Creating a positive movement for the oceans.
Launching alongside the adidas Terrex Free Hiker Parley is the Zupahike 3L Jacket, which has been made with recycled materials that saves on resources and avoids waste in the production process. It has a hybrid design that repels the wet in some areas and ventilates in others so you can stay warm and dry whilst on the move.
