Earlier this week, adidas invited us to a showcase of their Fall/Winter 2014 Outdoor line. Adidas Outdoor sees itself as “the athletic brand in the outdoors,” which means a lot of their stuff looks a heckuva lot different from, say, The North Face. Really colorful, aggressive trail and approach shoes featuring Continental rubber, jackets that incorporate all the innovative venting systems from their sportswear and, well, this badass boot, which they playfully refer to as “the basketball shoe you can hike in.”


Along with bold styling, the Padded PrimaLoft Boot is packed with technical awesomeness. Foremost among its features is PrimaLoft Gold insulation, which keeps your dogs warm during seemingly endless winters like this one. The shoe also boasts a comfy, sock-like construction, protective toe and heel caps and a rugged TRAXION outsole. That’ll help you keep your footing when you’re soaring over the snowman in your driveway for a monster jam. Keep an eye out for these kicks this fall.
