adidas Terrex Free Hiker Parley Hiking Shoes

While we will always love the three stripes for their contributions to the world of sneakers as a whole, adidas has done a lot more than just change the shoes we wear on the court…

These 9 Upcoming Products Will Seriously Upgrade Your Next Winter Adventure

Fresh off a couple days of backcountry skinning and sk’riding (skiing and riding) and three days trekking the floor at Denver’s Outdoor Retailer Snow Show, our heads are still spinning. Blame the altitude, the 80-plus meetings we took or 1,000-plus products we saw — or maybe those final night margaritas. Regardless, it’s a lot to process. 

But now that we’re coming up for air, we can take a moment to reflect on everything we saw and start to make sense of it. In the big picture, a ton of awesome stuff will be dropping for next winter. But zeroing in on our favorite upcoming releases, a couple of trends emerge.

The first one is accessibility. From a layering jacket that’s simultaneously warm and breathable to the perfect winter duffel and hiking shoe to snowboard and ski bindings that make life easier on the resort and way off-piste, several innovative new products stand out simply by lowering the many barriers to entry of cold-weather activities. 

The second one, critically, is sustainability. We’re stoked to see that apparel and gear makers are taking more and more steps to make use of existing resources and minimize footprints, be that in the form of solar-powered gear, an eco-friendly hoody or an earth-friendly reinvention of a product most of us rarely think about: ski wax. 

The future of cold-weather adventure can be scary to think about: it’s hard to know how long the powder will last. But as long as the passion we saw this past week remains, you can be sure we’ll be making the most of every flake. Without further ado, here are our Editors’ Picks for the best upcoming winter products. 

Additional contributions by Tanner Bowden and Steve Mazzucchi.

We attended the Outdoor Retailer Snow Show 2020 and covered it extensively. To see all of our product coverage, not just our award winners, you can head here.

Adidas Terrex Free Hiker C.Dry

Adidas proved with the original Free Hiker that sneakerhead-approved style and trail functionality aren’t mutually exclusive. With the upcoming winterized C.Dry version, it’s demonstrating that it can maintain that visual appeal within a highly technical set of features. The Free Hiker C.Dry uses a stretchy Primeknit upper that zips instead of laces, and Gore-Tex’s insulated Duratherm waterproof membrane supports it with weatherproof warmth. Adidas also gave the boot a grippy Continental rubber outsole and its beloved and springy Boost foam.

Black Diamond StoneHauler Duffel

When nearly every equipment maker has added a rugged duffel to its collection in recent years, it takes a lot to make one stand out (let alone win an award). But the StoneHauler does that, thanks to carefully designed features. Inside is an integrated storage bag that cinches shut, enclosing and separating anything that might be dirty from the rest of your stuff. The 35- and 45-liter Pro models even include an exterior-access padded laptop sleeve and the requisite backpack straps. To top it off, Black Diamond made all the StoneHauler duffels with an ultra-rugged fabric that’s 100 percent recycled.

Houdini Mono Air Houdi

It’s a sad reality that the more science progresses, the more we learn about the damage some of our manufacturing processes can do. For example, microplastic pollution in our waters, the byproduct of microfiber shedding from synthetic fleece. Upstart Swedish brand Houdini and Polartec teamed up to do something about it, and this hoodie featuring Polartec Power Air — a microfiber fabric that traps air and generates heat in small pockets — is the result. It boasts the performance of traditional fleece but sheds fives times fewer fibers. It’s also made of 73 percent recycled fibers and can be recycled again. The fact that this slim-fitting, functional garment is as comfortable and stylish as they come is just a bonus.

K2 Clicker x HB Binding

A couple weeks back, we applauded the efforts of CLEW, a German brand that won an ISPO award for rivaling Burton’s Step-On binding with its own innovative tech. Now K2 has leapt into the fray, revamping its Clicker tech with a new system featuring a highback and toe-heel mounts to better mimic the feel of a classic strap-in set-up. Potential advantages over Burton’s approach? K2 Clicker boots can still be used with traditional bindings, and the process of getting in and out may come naturally to cyclists, as it’s somewhat similar to engaging an SPD pedal. Not unlike the Marker binding below, we’d love to spend more time with the Clicker x HB to fully vet it, but our limited exposure has been promising.

Marker Duke PT Ski Binding

Marker has long been a critical player in the ski binding space, but Salomon earned yards when it released its versatile uphill-downhill Shift binding. Marker’s comeback will finally arrive in the Duke PT, a transformer of a binding with a removable toe piece that lets backcountry skiers walk uphill with 10.6 fewer ounces beneath each foot (weight counters rejoice!). When it’s time to ski down, the toe piece locks back into place and stays there thanks to a lever that engages when skiers click in their boots.

MountainFlow Eco-Wax

Here’s something you probably don’t think about much: all that petroleum-based wax on the bottom of your skis or snowboard slowly sloughs off into the snowpack, and last year, an estimated 2.5 million pounds of the stuff wound up in U.S. waterways when the snow melted. Enter MountainFlow Eco-Wax, an exhaustively researched and tested blend of plant-based waxes and oils that rivals the performance of traditional ski wax and costs the same or even less. We tried it out on some Colorado slopes and hardly noticed it, which is exactly what you want from ski wax. 

POC Cornea Solar Switch Goggle

Taking a bold swing in a snow optics market flooded with photochromic, LED and interchangeable lenses, the Solar Switch is a  liquid crystal lens that changes its tint in response to dynamic conditions, darkening when the sun is bright and lightening in clouds or shadows, quickly adjusting to accommodate everything from bluebird days to tree runs. And because it’s solar-powered, you never have to worry about charging it up or running out of juice on the slopes.

The North Face Summit L5 FutureLight Ventrix Jacket

Never mind its jargon-y mouthful of a name; all you need to know about one of The North Face’s newest jackets is that it combines two of the brand’s most impressive technologies. FutureLight is an incredibly breathable waterproof shell that launched this winter, and the somewhat-older Ventrix is a lightweight and breathable insulation. Combined in this jacket, they work to create a warm mid-layer that can hold its own as an outer layer too. Together, they prove The North Face is thinking creatively about how it mixes and matches its various apparel innovations.

Yakima CBX Solar Roof Box

Like it or not, electronics are part of heading to the outdoors. When they’re at their best, they improve rather than impede the experience. By integrating a solar panel into the lid of its forthcoming cargo box, Yakima is ensuring that happens by letting you charge an external battery or power bank while you cruise to your campsite. Sunflare produced the panel for Yakima’s purposes and made sure that it’s lightweight, thin and can stand up to anything that comes after it, like hail, falling sticks or an errant trekking pole. No surprise, then, that it was named Product of the Year at the Outdoor Retailer Innovation Awards — almost as lofty an honor as cracking our list.

Adidas Pulseboost HD

If you’re into running quite a bit, you’ve probably heard of the Pulseboost already, Nike’s line of excellent running shoes. The shoes have received enormous praise for their high level of comfort. And they’re also pretty responsive, what with the sock-like Adapt Knit upper and Adaptive Traxion outsole.

Suffice it to say they’re the perfect pair for both those who just decided to get into running or have run aplenty and seek good, reliable kicks. The Adidas Pulseboost HD provide plenty of support and grip, ensuring optimum movement and speed, regardless of what surface you chose to grind them on.

Thankfully, Adidas has just made the kicks a little bit better. The Pulseboost HD shoes come with a brand-new midsole that adds another layer of stability to the already impressively spec’d kicks. HD, here, means “high density. The Pulseboost tech this time hovers closer the the ground, ensuring a refined mix of balance and springiness. In effect, that gives you not only increased efficiency, but also comfort and ergonomics.

You can buy the Adidas Pulseboost HD right now; they became available back in July 13. Like the original Pulseboost, though, it’s going to cost you a bit. The kicks are $140, which is a tad bit on the pricey side but is not surprising of Adidas. Other colorways just became available now. Perhaps if the price didn’t sway you then, these new paints will.

This Is the Best New Outdoor Gear, According to Experts

While our team headed to Denver’s Outdoor Retailer to check out all the awesome adventure gear to look forward to in 2020, Europe has its own showcase for innovative products called OutDoor by ISPO, which went off last week in Munich. And amongst 203 items in 28 categories, judges chose just four Outstanding OutDoor Award winners. Here’s what caught their attention and is worth keeping an eye out for next year.

Vaude Redmont All-Weather Jacket

Judges loved the sustainability touches in this wind- and waterproof jacket. Vaude eliminated pesticides and herbicides from the organic cotton that forms the building blocks of this coat. All the accents, such as the trims and logo, are made of certified cork, keeping with the earth-friendly trend. Plus, the jacket looks great on city streets and the mountainside.

The North Face Futurelight Jacket

Our team is very familiar with The North Face’s newest technology, Futurelight, thanks to an Aspen ski trip this past winter. It’s no surprise that this waterproof yet breathable coat won at OutDoor by ISPO. Nano-spinning technology changes the level of breathability throughout the jacket, keeping it comfortable and waterproof through winter storms and sweaty uphills.

Petzl Mountaineering Belt Fly

Petzl’s newest harness aims to please ski mountaineers. The combination of metal and conventional buckles is both balanced and lightweight at just 90 grams. The comfort foam is removed to make more space for gear loops that will hold your ice axes, ropes, carabiners and more.

Adidas Terrex Myshelter Parley Jacket

This Adidas jacket passes muster with us too thanks to its cowl-like collar and beautifully tapered fit. The all-white three-layer piece is breathable (surprise!) and built to keep you dry during your commute. OutDoor by ISPO judges liked the blend of performance fabric with a lifestyle cut and design, plus the Parley sustainability mission means ocean plastic makes up at least part of this jacket.

The Best New Running Shoes Out This Month

With spring races just around the corner and more hours of sunshine in each day, it’s time to take your treadmill miles to the road. Each month there are a seemingly large number of new sneakers released, whether they’re updates to old versions or brand new models — and it can be hard to figure out which ones are worth buying. We’ve sifted through the noise for you; Here are all the running sneakers we’re excited about that launched this month.

Inov-8 Roclite 275

This light and speedy sneaker is ideal for rocky trails. Despite weighing just 9-ounces, the mesh upper and grippy, lugged outsole are heavy duty and won’t fall apart after 50 miles.

S/Lab Ultra 2

The S/Lab Ultra is for those on the high mileage side of trail running. At $180, it’s not an entry-level shoe, but runners in the know will recognize and put value in the name Françoise D’haene, an ultrarunner who collaborated on the design. He wore these during his record-breaking run of California’s John Muir Trail last October. Salomon’s newest trail runners will handle 50-mile trail races in stride, plus the improved fit means there’s ample room for foot swell.

Mizuno Wave Horizon 3

The newest sneaker from Mizuno is built for those who need stability on their runs. For those familiar with the Mizuno family of shoes, the midsole is the same as the Wave Enigma, Wave Rider and Wave Prophecy. For those who haven’t tried it, the foam is soft and cushioned, so you have a plush feel as soon as you step in.

Adidas Running x Game of Thrones

These unisex shoes, inspired by the television series Game of Thrones, come in six limited edition styles and colors. Expect the same great performance features the Ultraboost is known for like a cushioned feel and a grippy Continental outsole.

Skechers Go Run Razor 3 Hyper

In honor of the Los Angeles marathon (on March 24), Skechers, a title sponsor, released a new colorway of the speedy Gorun Razor. We tested a version of this sneaker and awarded it as one of the Best New Running Shoes of 2018, so we expect this version, which has only had a color update, will also help us pick up the pace and log some speedy meters.

Asics MetaRide

After a brief 20-minute treadmill run in the Asics MetaRide, we can vouch that the rocker technology makes for a seriously different feel. Heel strikers will get the most energy return as they hit the ground with their heel and feel the shoe roll forward (picture a rocking chair moving back and forth), which helps eliminate some energy output on your part.

The 15 Best New Running Shoes of 2018

This definitive guide to the best new running shoes of 2018 explores everything you need to know before buying new running shoes this year, including shoes from Brooks, Altra, Adidas, Asics, Mizuno, Reebok and more. These twelve shoes are worth tracking down this year. Read the Story

Adidas And Game Of Thrones Collab

It’s not typical for Adidas to come out with sneakers that take on popular culture, especially if it’s television. So it’s a delight whenever it does play that game from time to time. And the latest example of that is a line of sneakers inspired by Game of Thrones, perhaps the biggest show on TV right now. A few months ago, the company gave us the first look at its upcoming Game of Thrones lineup, and now it’s back with the Adidas House Targaryen UltraBOOST sneakers.

The design boasts an upper of all-white primeknit that’s complemented by all-white side panels and outsoles. There’s a striking metallic silver three-stripe detailing on the side, which add a nice contrast to the overall neutral look. If you’re a Game of Thrones nerd, you’ll love the “Fire and Blood” text with insoles featuring an emblazoned Game of Thrones logo.

If you don’t consider yourself much of a Game of Thrones fan, these kicks are fire regardless. Just look at that clean and simple silhouette and textured sole. Seems it was made from dragon skin, almost. Game of Thrones fan or not, the design is very notable. Moreover, it’s one of the more understated looks Adidas has come out with recently. Needless to say they should go great with practically any streetwear combo.

Adidas has yet to provide release information at the time of writing. However, you can check out the images below to get a closer look at the new Adidas House Targaryen UltraBOOST sneakers. Make sure to check back with Men’s Gear as we learn more.


Tennis HU and NMD Trail By BBC And Pharrell Williams

These shoes were leaked before they’re official announcement, so the kicks you see above might not be a total surprise anymore. Especially if you’re a sneakerhead always round the clock discovering the latest rumors.

But those leaks didn’t include the “HEART” and “MIND” embroidered text throughout the forefoot, so this is technically still the first time you’re seeing Adidas’ Tennis HU and NMD Trail, created in collaboration with Billionaire Boys Club plus legendary producer and style icon Pharrell Williams.

Both the Tennis HU and NMD Trail feature a knit upper with a white base and a stripe motif running across the forefoot. In Particular, the NMD HU features a trail-inspired tread pattern, embroidered text on the forefoot as we’ve mentioned. That and a full-length Boost midsole. And what BBC sneakers would be complete without some BBC branding? You’ll find that on the heel.

Per typical BBC style cues, the sneakers are dressed in a preppy nautical combination of white, navy, red, and yellow. Each boasts bold striped detailing and special gold-stamped hits on the heel. We don’t need to tell you these are some of the most stylish pair of kicks we’ve ever seen. We also don’t need to tell you that you have to act fast if you want one. The overall design draws inspiration from William’s streetwear brand Billionaire Boys Club. Specifically, it’s a manifestation of their motto, “Wealth is of the heart and mind, not the pocket.”

Comprising both the NMD HU Trail and the Tennis HU, the kicks pack is available at Adidas Originals and select sneaker retailers.

Top 19 Rockport Shoes For Men


ake a look back fifty years. If you were looking for a pair of shoes, you would have to settle for a stiff pair of dress shoes or an all-purpose set of boots. Ones that would be just as likely to leave your feet a delightful shade of swampy. Rockport shoes for men in today’s market are proven successes.

The previous set we were discussing was not great for family life, we can tell you. Comfortable, breathable footwear was nearly nonexistent. The “running shoe” as we know it was long away from invention.

One of the major stepping stones in the evolution of the perfect piece of footwear happened to be the rise of Rockport shoes. Founded in 1940, then known as The Hubbard company, they had a quest to be better than the average.

They were tired of deciding between comfort and style, so they wanted to do something about it.

Eventually, they saw a huge gap in the shoe market, so by 1973, they invented a shoe. They’d decide to call it: the walking shoe. Of course, it was given the official name of the “Country Walker.”

It was a revolution when it came to footwear, Rockport’s walking shoe became the prototype for the running shoe that we know today.

Plus, they managed to blend comfort with a stylish shoe.

From there it was only up. The company itself, as well as the production of Rockport shoes for men, was a family affair. They continued to rise up to where they are today. They’d eventually work with companies like Reebok, Adidas, and New Balance.

Through all these partnerships and changes, the brand remains unchanged. Comfort and style, together, remain supreme. Before we discuss the best Rockport shoes for men today, we need to get to some FAQs.

What should I check for when buying Rockport shoes for men?

When thinking about whether or not to buy Rockport shoes, there are a few questions you can ask yourself. You spend a lot of time earning your money, so when it comes time to buy new footwear you want to make sure that you’re making the best choices that fit your lifestyle.

Are you spending your money on the right shoe? The right style?

There’s so much more than this that needs to be considered. Here are a few pointers from Men’s Gear about what to check for when you invest in a pair of men’s Rockports.

Foot Support:

Making sure you feel totally supported is one of Rockport’s number one priorities. That’s why they invented the EVA comfort sponge footbed. This makes sure your shoe fits your foot exactly, and one of the key parts to a healthy foot overall.

For those who’d rather go without, it’s also removable. Your shoe, your rules!

Right wrong foot support can obviously hurt your feet. However, did you know it could also affect your back too? It’s true. The lower back can be drastically affected by this. Proper support in a shoe is more than just about your feet, it can be a huge problem for your entire body overall.

Get that proper support, guys!

Shock Absorption:

With truTECH technology, you’re going to be feeling as bouncy as ever when you walk down the street. It doesn’t matter if you’re walking on asphalt or on the grass, the shoes can be excellent for you. Rockport shoes absorb all the energy you make by walking, leaving you feeling fresh and energized.

This allows you to jump or fall a number of feet and not feel that really bad impact that can make landings painful.

Custom Fit:

When you buy Rockport walking shoes online, you’re not just buying a product. You’re buying a full solution for your feet, and what solution would be complete without customization? Every time you shop online through a Rockport outlet, you’ll be asked about the length and width of your feet.

They ask this to make sure they’re as snug as a bug, and you do not have any issues. If you don’t like it, make sure you familiarize yourself with return policies. It’s not for nothing that people keep coming back to Rockport!

Walk in style:

With Rockport’s signature style, you’re going to make an impression whenever you walk through the door. Along with sneakers, Rockport makes wonderful Oxford shoes and obviously the trademark DresSports line is amazing. You could be doing anything in these shoes, really.

Perhaps you’re going for a walk in the park and want to look good doing it.

Maybe you’re pacing the office or taking the dog out for a walk so he or she can do their “business.” Rockport’s got your back with the latest in men’s shoe fashion.


Shopping through a Rockport shoe outlet online is insanely easy. That means making sure you get exactly what you need all in one place is more convenient than ever before! The benefits are undeniable if we’re being honest here. You’re able to find any model, color, or make with these wonderful online outlets.

With large warehouses all over the country, you’re unlikely to find something out of stock.

What are the benefits of Rockports over other brands?

Like any major brand with recognition and success, Rockport shoes couldn’t have gotten as far as they have without having something special to offer consumers.  We’re going to break down some of the reasons why Rockport shoes for men deserve attention.

Of course, this will prove in all likelihood that you’d need a couple spots on your footwear rack to open up. That said, let’s discuss the great things about these shoes.


We can’t say it enough, a sturdy pair of dress shoes or the loose-and-light feel of running shoes each have their own benefits. However, a solid pair of Rockports helps you to find your style while never compromising on mobility or comfort.

Everything here relies on the innovative design that underlies (quite literally) every Rockport shoe.

They discovered a lot on their quest to find the perfect piece of footwear for optimum walking. In this time, Rockport invested heavily in figuring out the biomechanics of the perfect stroll. Seriously, they actually did this.

Using their cutting-edge results, they came up with a design that’s lightweight and easy to pack into an unassuming, stylish shoe.

The end product is a shoe that’s flexible enough to be through a wide variety of contexts and situations. While the average man might have to store a half-dozen shoes in their closet, Rockports do double-time and save space.

Brand recognition:

Rockport shoes for men have a long history of being associated with healthy living. From their initial research into the biomechanics of walking, they went on to design a media campaign that wasn’t only marketing their shoes. Rather, it marketed walking itself as a lifestyle choice.

With the help of fitness icons like Robert Sweetgall, they promoted the “Walk for the Health of It” campaign back in the 1980s. A massive media event, walkers sporting Rockports crossed the country (11,600 miles!) promoting walking as a healthy alternative to running.

Although Forest Gump feels both are useful.

Through it all, Rockport became solidified as the go-to brand for healthy daily choices. By donning a pair for yourself, you’ll be tapping into a long history of conscious, healthy decisions along with a major cultural shift.

Stand out from the crowd:

Rockport shoes have earned their reputation as an icon for walkers everywhere, and they easily surpass other brands for their sheer utility. Some power-walkers might trade in their nice shoes for a pair of sturdy-yet-unseemly runners.

However, you’re going to be hitting the pavement in style with Rockport.

Nowhere else are you going to find as perfect a marriage of style and mobility. Thankfully for us, we don’t see a divorce coming anytime soon.

What can I wear Rockport shoes with?

While many brands try to make sure their offerings are as universal as possible, sometimes this doesn’t work. Universality, for us, sounds like a nice way to say ‘bland’. Here at Men’s Gear, we look for the best, and sometimes that means making choices that you can’t just ‘throw on whatever’ with.

You want to put your best foot forward, in more ways than one. Making sure you pair your Rockport walking shoes with the right gear goes a long way to making a solid impression when you need it.

No one buys Rockport shoes so they can look like a slob:

Let’s say this again, “we’re not students anymore.” We don’t need to be wearing whatever we find first on our clothes rack. A bit of forethought makes your personal style all the better. People think that going out for a morning power walk is an excuse to bring out their old, moth-eaten sweats.

They then head on out to meet the world looking like they came out of The Slob Company Catalog. No one’s really watching, right? Wrong!

You don’t buy a pair of Rockports so you can throw on any old thing with it. You buy a pair of Rockports to look great no matter where you are. You’re a man of means, so you’re able to whip out a fantastic set of sweatpants that show off your assets while looking great.

Heading out in the mornings is no reason to look like a slob. You’re here because we’re long past that.

Upgrading your wardrobe:

Rockport dress shoes are meant to make a statement, wherever you are. It’s about making sure that you’re comfortable while on your feet without ever having to compromise your sense of style. It’s about raising your standards.

What better excuse is there to make sure your wardrobe is up to snuff?

Wearing Rockports gives you an excuse to really show what you’re made of. Those cardigans that would never go with your worn-out sneakers? Those stretchy pants that are obviously tailor-made from that East Village outlet everyone’s talking about?

All are great with a pair of Rockports. It’s all about showing yourself at your best, from the shoes up.

Look good, feel great:

The best part about wearing Rockport shoes (and pairing them with a stylish set of clothes) is that you’re never going to feel like you’re too still to go out for a walk. Whatever Rockport shoe outlet you’re going with, you’ll be encouraged to both look good and feel great.

Why choose between health and style? With Rockport shoes for men, you’re going to be living in the best of both worlds.

How do I take care of my Rockport shoes?

Maintaining a healthy lifestyle is more than just thinking good thoughts about getting out there for a walk. Just like your health, having a pair of Rockport shoes means putting in a bit of effort. This is only natural because all good things come with a bit of elbow grease.

Any man knows they get as much out of something as they put into it.

Rockport shoes for men are built for activity. They’re maintained as an important factor in making sure they last as long as possible. Not to mention having them look great too. What’s the point of having a pair of Rockport shoes for men if you’re not able to show off a bit?

Making sure they’re polished before you go out is key to making that great first impression. Keeping them clean is also a big one, especially as you’ll be using them to walk in all sorts of places.

Treat your Rockports like you treat a good friend, and you’ll get lots of use out of them. With that said, we’d like to show you some of our top Men’s Gear picks for Rockport shoes for men on the market today.

Adidas Numbers City Cup Limited Shoes

Do you get the same level of excitement we do when we hear that another exclusive line of Adidas shoes is about to drop? Numbers, a skateboarding brand based in Los Angeles, has teamed up with Adidas Skateboarding to create an exclusive and exciting line of sneakers. One of the highlights of this collection is undeniably the Adidas Skateboarding x Numbers custom City Cup shoe.

What do we love about this shoe? It has a very vintage laidback look and feel to it, with a subtle gray upper made from nubuck leather and double cup for a midsole. The shoe is finished out with an outsole made of rubber.

Internally, the heel is lined with EVA for high quality and comfortable cushioning, while breathability has been factored into the design with the knit collar and mesh lining. Taking the vintage further, there is a reflective trim on both the heel and tongue.

Adidas have released a number of exclusive lines over the last few years and haven’t wrong-footed once yet; that winning track record continues with these stylish if subdued skateboarding sneakers.

Add a touch of cool to your streetwise look with these for just under 100 bucks.
