Updates to Merrell All Out Crush Light
- Being the newest addition to Merrell’s off-road shoes, the All Out Crush Light features a breathable upper, which is made from woven fabric and TPU materials, make a great exterior. As enhanced with the TPU synthetic materials, this shoe is more durable and easy to clean and dry. The elasticity of the upper also adds a very distinct touch to trail running experience. A toe cap protection is also added in the upper design.
- The midsole of this shoe are composed of the Uni Fly, an integrated EVA foot bed made of ultra-resilient foam, and TrailProtect pad, underfoot guard that protects the foot from sharp objects. Both of these are for comfort and protection on tough terrains, especially on off-road trails. This provides great impact absorption while keeping it soft on landing, thus foot is empowered for a great take off.
- For its outsole, the M-Select Grip is used, which is a compound of soft rubber with tear-resistant property. It has a self-cleaning set of lugs placed around edge, providing lateral movement. It also provides reliable grip on wet or dry weather.
Merrell All Out Crush Light size and fit
The All Out Crush Light comes true to size. Its upper materials are not just for a smart appeal, but for a comfortable fitting as well. The toe area is just at the right width, as well as the mid-foot area so that the foot can move well as it spread out along the stride.
The outsole has the M-Select Grip Merrell technology. This is a rubber compound for abrasion resistance and non-slip purposes. The 5mm lug offers excellent grip and great traction on mud without slipping even on wet grounds.
The midsole are made from soft and comfortable Uni-Fly foam cushioning and TrailProtect pad. These technologies make the shoe more protective and softer with a better ground feel on trails. The impact is properly dispersed and the aggressiveness is heightened for faster and longer performance.
The upper comes with a new design of the combined breathable mesh and TPU synthetic materials. It offers not just the breathability, but the elasticity, durability, and comfort. Merrell also used the traditional lace closure system, but enhanced the toe area with the Toe Protect cap, thus adding protection against sharp objects on tough terrains.
