- This mid-top version of the Merrell Pulsate 2 Leather features a full-grain leather upper that offers durable protection against the elements and the M.Select DRY impermeable membrane that seals water out.
- The Merrell Air Cushion in the heel absorbs impact for a more comfortable stride and the compression-molded EVA midsole keeps this boot stable. Furthermore, the M.Select GRIP rubber compound in the outsole ensures reliable traction in wet and dry grounds.
The mid-height profile of the Pulsate 2 LTR WP grants ample coverage and support around the ankle. Its leather upper conforms to the shape of the foot while the mesh lining feels soft and comfortable to the skin. This boot uses a traditional lace-up closure featuring hooks and webbing laces for a secure fit. The Y-shaped overlay hugging the heel also has loops that cup the heel and keep it from sliding or slipping inside.
This boot has the M Select GRIP outsole with 5mm lugs for superb traction on uneven surfaces, including mud, rocks, loose dirt, and gravel. The aggressive pattern also ensures an enhanced grip no matter the condition - whether it's raining hard or you're traversing wet trails.
For its cushioning system, the waterproof Merrell Pulsate 2 Mid Leather boots feature a compression-molded EVA midsole that provides stability and lightweight cushioning. EVA is a resilient foam that has a good bounce rate which means it helps absorb the impact on the foot when walking or running. To enhance the structure and further ease the tension in the foot, this boot also integrates a molded nylon arch shank in the midsole. It works by reducing the weight incurred by the wearer's weight and therefore preventing fatigue.
This heavy-duty hiker is built with a full-grain leather upper with mesh. It features a well-padded tongue and collar for more protection and comfort. Inside the shoe is the M.Select DRY waterproof membrane that protects against external moisture. Since this shoe partly uses mesh in the upper, it doesn't overheat even in extremely hot days. The Pulsate 2 Mid Leather boots also feature a bellows tongue for keeping debris out, a toe cap for added protection against the elements, and the Merrell Air Cushion in the heel that works by absorbing shock and promoting stability.
Completing the upper is a traditional lacing system that allows for a customized and secure fit.
