^^^These have EVA midsoles, which is what most Terrex have (and running shoes have had for 30 years), but if you haven't tried the Boost sole, you really should. The Agravic line uses it and they feel amazing. It's like an anti-fatigue kitchen mat in your shoe, that is still springy and responsive. You can tell its a Boost shoe from that geometric patterned foam (usually white) just above the outsole: https://www.adidas.com/us/terrex-agr...es/EE9570.html

Nike's React midsole (released in 2018) might be better, but I've only owned one pair so far. It's easier to find Adidas Boost trail runners on sale, because they've been on the market for 5 years.

I can vouch for boost comfy-ness. On my third pair of boots running shoes. The cloth like material on those isn't durable but they feel great.

They have goretex and other more durable uppers paired with the Boost, but I do like the knits. I had a pair of Response Trail Boosts for two years, before the lugs on the Continental soles finally wore flat (average of two rounds a week). Only one tear in the knit.

I'll be honest I didn't even see that there's currently a sale code. I think there's always a sale code though

Stopped into DICKS. Grabbed these:

Not waterproof but felt comfy and looked durable while also cheap. I also price matched to Amazon for 48. Deal with it. Should get me by for a bit.

I'm also going to be researching and looking to get a pair of these when on sale or something from the agravic line that has the boost tech. I noticed that the one you linked is the only one that has the description about the toe cap and welded seams (see link I highlighted description here:
http://imgur.com/a/jF3Lyho)

But all of the agravic gore tex line (cheaper ones) look the same to me there. Even on what appears to be the same shoe in black doesn't have that description (is also cheaper). You think it's likely just an omission or is the 170 shoe really the only one with really good toe cap?

Cheers

Not sure, but I wouldn't be surprised if one version had it and the other didn't. For instance, the Response line seems to switch from a Continental outsole to just an Adidas branded outsole every other model.

I normally put a pair of shoes on an Amazon wish list and then wait until the end of the year(ish) and wait for the last few pairs to be discounted.

I got a pair of addias agravic GTX shoes last year for $48 doing this. Back in 2017 I got a pair of adidas kanadia 7 gtx's for $51. I got a little over 2 and a half years out of the kanadias and just switched to the agravics. My goal is to be able to score a pair of the adidas CMTK GTX in the next year for close to the same amount.

I got a pair of merrell's (capra bolt waterproof) for $60 last year as well, but they are pretty uncomfortable, so they live in my trunk as backups.

My shoe size may help with this routine though, as I wear size 14's. Usually those are the first or last to go, and if they're the last one's they'll get discounted. Definitely a slow-go plan though.
