Adidas' second season out at OR offered up want'ems in the high end Terrex and the Terrex Swift-for fast pace adventures...both made out of high performance textiles-  Gore-Tex® Performance Shell, Cocona, Climaproof® Wind, Formotion™ -four way stretch and Windstopper® Active Shells----

Admit it-this is the new Dockers® for sure-a brand that has gone waaayyyy beyond casual Fridays---into a cool lifestyle division of Levi'szzr, the parent company.

Women's-Dockers®---take a page from the guys-classic menswear style-fit for a  gal with tapered seams, feminine lines...nice.
