Updates to Merrell All Out Terra Turf

  • The Merrell All Out Terra Turf was created for running and for casual purposes. It has an eye-catching façade that caters to modern tastes. It also has a low-cut design and a thin platform, both of which appeal to minimalist runners. It’s made from durable materials, thus allowing to last long.
  • The upper unit of this shoe uses breathable mesh to accommodate air flow. Pig-suede leather is also used for the cover system. When combined, they deliver durable coverage that’s snug and secure. Stitched overlays help the fabrics in wrapping around the foot. They connect directly to the lacing system, essentially adapting to the tightening or loosening of the shoelaces.
  • The platform of the Merrell All Out Terra Turf is thin and close to the ground. A removable foot-bed serves as the cushioning system of the runner. This responsive foam lightly cushions the foot to make each step more comfortable. It can be removed completely to achieve a near-barefoot running experience.
  • The robust outsole construction makes this footwear aggressive on the trails. The M-Select™ GRIP technology offers durable protection against wear and tear. It resists slippage, thus enabling it to function well in both dry and wet conditions. Gripping lugs heighten traction on a variety of surfaces.

Merrell All Out Terra Turf size and fit

The Merrell All Out Terra Turf uses standard measurements for its length. The available width for both the men and women’s versions is medium, so it is able to accommodate those with medium sized feet. The natural curve of the human foot is mimicked by its semi-curved shape.


The outsole unit of this shoe uses Vibram® rubber. It’s a durable material that doesn’t let debris or the surfaces cause havoc to the shoe itself. It’s long lasting and it doesn’t peel off easily.

The M-Select ™ GRIP is a slip-resistant outsole that is able to function well on wet and dry ground. It doesn’t allow rocks or other debris to get lodged in between its multidirectional gripping lugs.


The Merrell All Out Terra Turf uses an Ethylene vinyl acetate food-bed to deliver underfoot cushioning. It can be replaced or removed entirely to suit the preference of the wearer.

The thin platform of this shoe is geared towards runners who enjoy a close-to-the-ground performance.


Durable mesh makes up the main upper fabric of the Merrell All Out Terra Turf. It delivers breathable coverage, which keeps the foot cool and dry.

Pig suede leather is layered on top of the mesh material. It provides structure and form to the upper, while also heightening its durability.

The interior lining features breathable mesh, which keeps the foot comfortable and dry. The smooth disposition of this fabric prevents skin irritation.

A toe-bumper made from fused rubber protects the toes from debris and potentially harmful surfaces that may come in contact with the foot.
