adidas has been synonymous with blending function with style, especially with their TERREX line. Their collaborations have always turned heads, one of the most noteworthy being the and wander partnership. As the anticipation surrounding their releases has grown, fans will be excited to hear about their series's third and final chapter, which is all set for a grand unveiling. This collaboration has constantly evolved, culminating in a design inspired by the very fabric of our universe.
In a marriage of style and sustainability, the reimagined Free Hiker 2.0 is designed with a canvas upper, derived from over half its natural and renewable materials composition. The shoe does not skimp on comfort, integrating adidas' renowned BOOST technology in its midsole, ensuring that wearers have a snug and comfortable experience. The palette and aesthetics of this collection are deeply rooted in the wonders of our world, reflecting the orbits of celestial bodies and designs that evoke feelings of earth and nature. This includes a shadow brown, arctic night, charcoal grey mixture, and a wonder beige, wonder blue, and grey combination.
Carla Murphy, the adidas TERREX Global General Manager, shared some insight: "When we first teamed up with and wander, our goal was to create a multi-season collection that connects our mutual philosophies and allows more people to enjoy the outdoors in style. Our first collection was inspired by human synapses and neurons, focusing on the microscopic elements. The second collection drew from macro elements, with earthy shades replicating the appearance of the earth's surface from space. This final chapter ties everything together, establishing a profound connection with the earth and nature."
The and wander x adidas Terrex Free Hiker 2.0 Pack will be first released on September 15, 2023, in Japan, followed by a global release in October. Available through adidas Confirmed and select retailers online and in physical stores, both pairs will retail for $250.
