Merrell Freewheel Mesh Style

Merrell, with the release of the Freewheel Mesh, has once more proven that a sneaker does not have to be colorful and flashy in order for it to earn praise and admiration.

This low-top, closed toe and lace up shoe is well-liked for its no-frills yet attractive aesthetics. Created for cyclists, this shoe is available in three colorways namely Black, Beluga and White Dove. Unlike other biking footwear, the Freewheel Mesh is also great for other outdoor activities including long walks and trail hikes. It can also be worn as your everyday footwear and for casual events.

Notable Features

Aside from the shoe’s recognizable upper, the Freewheel Mesh is also known for its rubber outsole that uses the innovative M Select™ GRIP. This technology gives the shoe lasting and highly slip-resistant traction, thereby allowing the wearer to move without worries on dry and wet surfaces.

On top of that, the sneaker also features a CycleTread™ midsole. This, on the other hand, provides midfoot rigidity for increased pedalling power as well as forefoot flexibility for enhanced walking comfort.

Merrell Freewheel Mesh History

Since 1981, the brand, aiming to create the best outdoor gear, has tirelessly designed and developed new technologies as well as apparel and footwear for various types of athletes. This includes cyclists. Keen to satisfy the demands of this growing clique, Merrell released the Freewheel Mesh.

Made with performance and support in mind, this sneaker right away became a popular option for bikers as well as people who are always on the move. However, Merrell did not stop there. Striving to meet the unique needs of every cyclist, the brand introduced various versions which include the Freewheel Moc and the Freewheel Lace.
