Renders support without compromising flexibility

These low-cut hiking shoes from Merrell use a cushioned midsole and the brand-owned Kinetic Fit Base insole. The latter conforms to the shape of the hiker’s foot to render support without compromising flexibility. This mechanism helps reduce fatigue even after a long hike, thus alleviating the chances of incurring injuries.

Excellent arch support

Thanks to the inclusion of a molded nylon arch shank, underfoot firmness is granted. This element also helps prevent unwanted twisting of the foot over rugged terrain.

Maintain a fresh and odor-free environment

The brand’s engineers incorporated the M Select Fresh feature in this hiking shoe. It helps maintain a fresh and odor-free environment. It utilizes a pro-biotic technology that bonds microbes to the shoe’s lining. These microbes (once activated by sweat or any organic material) break down the odor-causing bacteria. This process, according to Merrell, naturally occurs and is non-toxic.
