It goes without saying that trail sneakers aren't always the best looking kicks on the shelves. Hiking shoes are usually designed to be more rugged and durable than sleek and stylish, but there are exceptions, like this EQT from adidas Originals.

Officially known as the adidas EQT Adventure, this hiker pulls inspiration from adidas models of year's past, most notably the EQT XTR, for a brand new sneaker that achieves the rare balance of appearing both tough and fashionable. 

Tech-wise, we don't know very much about these yet, but we do know that the inner bootie is constructed from hardwearing Cordura fabric, so they're definitely built to take a beating.

The EQT Adventure has been spotted in both tan (pictured above) and black colorways, with the latter listed as coming soon on 43einhalb. Take another look below and check back soon for more information on these.
