I’ve never owned a pair of trainers in my life and have always silently questioned the female commuters on who travel on the London underground in fancy dresses and their trainers.

I’m now one of those women.

Not only was it good for us and the site but it brought us into the Adidas world and it was so encouraging to be learning about something new, something which was so on track with what we believe in here at The Explorers Home HQ.

Sophie Radcliffe (Challenge Sophie)

We’ve followed the adventurous lifestyle and encouraging posts of Sophie for a while so it was so good to finally meet her and introduce ourselves properly and away from all the social media hype. Sophie is often pushing her limits and using the mountainous backdrop she has so close to her to challenge her and is so enthusiastic about all that she does. I find her to be absolutely ace and she fills me with inspiration and self motivation pretty much every day.

Shauna Coxsey

Boy has this lass got some strength. Shauna is the UK’s no. 1 Bouldering Champion who last year won second place in the World Championships and is such an awesome spirit. Shauna won my heart during this event by introducing herself at the beginning of her speech as a couch potato, something I can personally relate to, and continued to tell us how slowly but surely she started to enjoy her journey she had with running. She drove her flatmates mental when she started to write words of inspiration all over the place which I’ve since followed. Though mine mainly promise cake.

Alan and I have something in common – food. Though I don’t quite have Alan’s Michellin Star status and tend to just make mean cheese on toast, we also share the love for the outdoors. Alan had us in stitches as he told us tales about the Michellin-Starred Chef industry and how his favourite restaurant is McDonald’s. As well as making better cheese on toast than I can, Alan is also a Double World and European AG Duathlon Champion![/fusion_text][fusion_separator style_type=”none” top_margin=”5″ bottom_margin=”” sep_color=”” icon=”” width=”” class=”” id=””/][fusion_imageframe lightbox=”no” style_type=”none” bordercolor=”” bordersize=”0px” borderradius=”0″ stylecolor=”” align=”center” link=”” linktarget=”_self” animation_type=”0″ animation_direction=”down” animation_speed=”0.1″ class=”” id=””] [/fusion_imageframe][fusion_separator style_type=”none” top_margin=”5″ bottom_margin=”” sep_color=”” icon=”” width=”” class=”” id=””/][fusion_text]Each of the speakers hold their own achievements but all share the same love for Adidas and the outdoors and spoke of these two things very easily, as if it was just instinct. The guys told us what the Terrex Boost is, means and does for them and how they’ve all incorporated this shoe into their daily and bolder activities and how the brand has changed their mindset.[/fusion_text][fusion_separator style_type=”none” top_margin=”5″ bottom_margin=”” sep_color=”” icon=”” width=”” class=”” id=””/][fusion_text]In one hand I grabbed tight of all the motivation I’d gained and in the other, a pair of Terrex Boosts.

Now, I’m not a runner but I have ran and I’ve hiked, and I’ve cycled and I’ve lightly climbed and every bit of physical damage my body has been through this summer, has been boosted by my boosts and I’ve ignored all my usual activity footwear and just gone with these.

Comfort – style – breathability – fit and shape – design – energy. I can’t fault em, annoying really.

I wear a size 5 and the shoe naturally shapes my foot and doesn’t act as a brick like I find most other trainers, probably why I’ve not bought a pair before. I’ve found I benefit from this the most when I’m cycling. The Brompton’s peddles are small and sweet so it’s important that I’m not wearing wide, heavy or horrendously gripped footwear which I did once and was constantly coming off them. It’s important to feel secure in your shoes.

No laces! The shoe benefits from having speed lacing construction which means getting em onto your foot is so quick and easy and the quality of the laces is great. I’ve had no accidents yet!
