Merrell's  M Select GRIP+ mechanism in the outsole

The outsole of Merrell Agility Peak Flex employs the M Select™ GRIP+ mechanism for enhanced traction. It actually has a skeletal lugged design, which extends throughout the outsole and is responsible for multi-directional traction and natural foot flexibility. This saves the runner from worrying about the slips and injuries.

Perform well even on roughest terrains with the Agility Peak Flex midsole

The midsole of the Peak Flex has the FLEXconnect™ EVA (Ethylene Vinyl Acetate) compound - a very soft, durable, and lightweight material that performs well even in the harshest conditions. This foam also has flex grooves. These small indentations make the platform more adherent to the natural motion of the foot.

The shoe is also provided with a removable sock-liner called the EVA Removable Footbed. It is used under the foot for additional cushioning. As a result of this sock-liner, the runners get a more comfortable and plush feel while running. As suggested by its name, it can be removed or replaced.

The mud resistant upper of the Agility Peak Flex

The upper of the shoe has the fabric mesh material with TPU coverage, which is not only durable but also mud resistant. The technique prevents the shoe from wear and tear, as well as mud infiltration. The Hyperlock molded TPU heel counter helps in locking the foot in place and preventing it from exiting the shoe accidentally.

The Merrell Omni-Fit™ lacing system helps in keeping the foot in its proper position. It works in cooperation with the padded collar & tongue, and it provides a glove-like fit to the user.
