Rated 4 out of 5 by GordyB from Great look I purchased the fast x high not to long ago and haven't really had a chance to properly test them out but here is my first reaction to the boot. The look of the boot is great and I love the high ankle lace up system for the extra support in rough terrain but my only complaint so far is that the shoe doesn't really cater to a wide foot. This is something I've just learnt to put up with and generally just wear the shoes with a little discomfort until they finally break in for my foot, then from that point on the shoe is amazingly comfortable. It's just unfortunate that I'm usually at the half life point of the shoe anyway so not long till the next replacement.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Eric Rad from Outstanding all-around fast hiker/approach shoe The Fast X High Gore-Tex is a shoe that has won me over as an incredible all-arounder. I have used this boot intensively over the past 3 months during the winter-spring shoulder season in New Mexico, Colorado and New England and found it to be agile, super-light (given it's level of support), and very grippy in a variety of conditions. I have worn the Fast X with Microspikes for surer traction on icy snow---the shoes are easily substantial enough to handle the Microspikes. (The limiting factor, of course, will be their lack of insulation which makes this ordinarily a 3 season shoe--Adidas makes a Primaloft-insulated version of this shoe for colder conditions.) The Continental rubber outsole--as advertised--provides great friction on dry and wet surfaces and, surprisingly, these light hikers are fine approach shoes for moderate climbing/bouldering. The fit is precise, a quality which aids the shoe's sensitivity during hikes/climbs. While the cinching lace-up system takes a little while to get used to, but I have found (with slight modification) that it provides an efficient way for snugging the shoe--a feature which has means that I haven't had to stop and tighten the laces during long hikes. The slight modification I made was to tie an overhand knot 1.5 - 2" from the end-loop of the laces which 1) reduces the over-all length of the laces (preventing them from overhanging the boot) and thus 2) creates a "stopper" knot to keep the lace from creeping out past the lace-keeper, thus eliminating a possible tripping factor with the supplied quick lace-up system. As promoted, the Gore-tex liner works extremely well to waterproof the shoes: after daily use of three months I can still wade ankle-deep into water without any leakage. After this intensive use the boots' uppers have proven to be durable, with little visible wear. The boots are reasonably stone-proof, meaning that they are stiff enough to prevent protrusions on the trail from being felt through the sole system. While not a running shoe, per se, I have jogged steeps and flats in the Fast X's with a high degree of comfort. As with any grippy outsole compound, the tread wear is noticeable after three months--but this level of wear is slightly more durable than. La Sportiva's Frixion outsole. I highly recommend the Fast X's a generalist's fast-hiker, a boot that is supremely adaptable to a variety of trail conditions. The Fast X is also a great single choice for traveling---going from the city to the back country with ease. I have 2 caveats: the sole shows moderate wear after 3 months of daily use, also not a shoe that I would use with a pack load over 15-20 lbs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Phoenix from Superb hiking boot! I recently backpacked about 20 miles over the course of three days in the Ozark Mountains with the fast x high gtx on my feet. We fought almost 6000 feet in elevation change, crossed many streams, bush wacked our way through brush and mud, but at the end my feet were left unscathed. I even made the mistake of not breaking my boots in beforehand. Despite this error on my end the boots worked great! The humid weather, mud, rain, elevation, and many trail miles was not enough to get past the fast x high gtx. My feet felt comfortable, dry, and secure all day. What more can you ask for in a hiking boot? I am especially happy with the lightweight design, solid shoelace hooks, and the grip provided by the continental soles. The boot also fit very true to its size, otherwise I would have suffered many blisters from my trip. Overall it's a very well designed hiking boot!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Corch55 from Looks good! I bought these after first trying the Terrex Scope High Gore-Tex shoes. I found that the Terrex ones were too tight at the toe at my normal Sixe 11 and I couldn't wear thick socks with them. Buying these at Size 11.5, I can wear thick socks and the toes feel fine. I would recommend that people buy a half-size up with these High Gore-Tex shoes ...

Rated 5 out of 5 by Doozie37 from best I've ever bought and I'm picky Very high quality, warm, lightweight, comfortable and very visually appealing! I always spend top dollar on my footwear and these boots don't disappoint! Because of the gortex lining, order a half size up. Short break in period for myself, but they really conform to your foot and get even better as they're worn!

Rated 1 out of 5 by BK AZ from Tough Fit Adidas must have used female lasts for these. Super narrow, especially around the ball of the foot. I've always loved Adidas fit. The Hydro-Pro are the best shoes I've owned. These are built for someone else. Maybe someone with AAA width feet or someone who has been in an industrial accident and lost half the width of a normal foot

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sunny H from very comfortable Bought this book size 12. so far put in about 10 miles on them. For the first mile, they pinched my small toe but that feeling went away pretty quick. I realized that the footbed need to break in a little bit. After that, these shoes are awesome. I am used to shoes with the Vibram soles but these continental soles seem even more grippy. The shoe is very comfortable and I am beyond happy with the purchase. I was considering adding an aftermarket insole in them but for now I am very happy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TRRM from Great lightweight high top! It really is impressive what Adidas Outdoor has achieved with the Fast X High. Typically, when you purchase a durable, waterproof high top, they are heavy and bulky. But, these seriously are in the same weight class a mid level supportive low top hiker. I have had two other Fast Mid/High's, a Fast R GTX Mid and a Fast X GTX FM Mid. Compared to those two, these are a sturdier shoe and but once you break them in, they don't feel burdensome or bulky. That being said, WAIT to judge them until you thoroughly break them in. With every Fast line I have had, you really don't get into the sweet spot for comfort until 30+ miles. After that, they are like absolute butter on your feet! The Ortholite insoles are comfortable and start molding, especially in the forefoot instantly. For a stock insole, they also offer the most heel support out of anything I've used. The continental outsoles are worth every penny in my estimation, are the best outsoles available in any shoe. I absolutely love these and for aggressive terrain excursions at 14,000 feet, these will be perfect for me!
