-The Merrell Choprock Strap, the sandal sibling of the Choprock hiking shoe, is designed to address the needs of trail lovers, especially around water. It comes equipped with a Vibram outsole for surface traction.
-This water-friendly hiking sandal is built in such a way that prevents debris from getting stuck underneath the wearer’s foot. It is also engineered with a toe rocker for enhanced walking comfort on flat surfaces.
Merrell’s Choprock Strap is a hiking sandal for men and women. It has a slightly raised rear border to prevent heel slippage. Hikers may adjust its fit to their preference via the footgear’s three-strap closure system.
Where sticking to virtually all types of terrain is concerned, owners can rely on the Choprock Strap’s Vibram Megagrip outsole (also used in the Merrell hiking shoe Moab FST 2). This component offers multi-directional grip on a variety of surfaces, be they wet or dry. It comes with aggressive lugs, all of which are 5 mm in depth, and multi-sided grooves to help hikers remain surefooted on loose soil. The ridged construction of its heel zone delivers additional maneuverability during descents
A compression-molded midsole is what promises a stable and sufficiently cushioned ride in the Merrell Choprock Strap. It is capable of absorbing shock upon impact thanks to its brawny yet supple heel. Nested on top of this springy midsole is a non-removable contoured insole (footbed), which also has a compression-molded construction. Its engineers gave it a heel-securing border and a textured surface to prevent the foot from sliding out of place.
The strappy upper of the Choprock Strap is a combination of webbing and water-friendly synthetic textile. It has a soft liner that provides extra breathability. Making up its lockdown system are three adjustable straps and a set of metallic buckles. Every strap is engineered with hook-and-loop fasteners.
Taking good care of the Choprock Strap is a great way to keep it in tip-top shape for longer. The tips that follow can help improve its lifespan.
- Use a soft brush to scrape away dirt and debris from the shoe after each use.
- Wash a muddied pair in warm water with some mild soap. Rinse thoroughly.
- Dry the Choprock Strap with its straps undone somewhere breezy yet shaded. Do not expose it to direct sunlight.
