The Merrell Freewheel Bolt Lace has a standard sizing of a D medium that is available for men. Its size ranges from 7-15.
Without breaking away from the usual comfort given by a “Dad shoe” while administering an elegant design, the Merrell Freewheel Bolt Lace demonstrated that a shoe could have both. With its standard pattern of earth tone colorways and some notable exceptions on the side note, the sneaker can be worn when casual clothing is required. Can be easily mistaken for an office shoe, it can also be partnered with either pants, shorts or jeans for the go.
The upper made of a pig suede material dominates the upper up to the tongue with an attached Merrell logo. A stitched Merrell patch at the top heel is preceded by a zigzag patterned textile that weaves through the heel counter.
A visible shank called the Merrell CycleTread™ technology is installed at the mid-foot printed with two abstract gear designs. The Merrell Freewheel Bolt Lace can be seen in a variety of colorways including granite, navy, coriander, granite suede, brown sugar, espresso, and rosin.
For almost four decades of spontaneous customer support, Merrell had proven to be an outstanding company that develops technology focusing on the enhancement of human capabilities and lifestyle. Along with this line of vision is the manufacturing of shoes for outdoor recreational activities, involving biking.
Realizing that the mid-foot is the necessary part of an efficient bike stride, the company developed the Merrell CycleTread™ technology which provides a stable foot pedal power without disregarding flexibility in the forefoot.
Several models of the Merrell Freewheel series were equipped with this Merrell’s technology including the Merrell Roust Fury, Merrell Roust Frenzy, Merrell Roust Revel, and the Merrell Freewheel Bolt Lace.
- The shoe has a breathable mesh lining for comfort and convenience.
- The molded nylon arch shank provides support and cushion to the user.
- A Merrell air cushion is included in the heel for added support and helps absorb impact.
- The product also consists of an M Select™ durable outsole for a firmer grip and traction in all types of outdoor terrain.
- It includes a removable EVA footbed.
