Who should buy the Merrell Thermo Rogue Mid GTX
The Thermo Rogue Mid GTX is an astounding Merrell piece whose strengths give trail lovers an edge in their winter excursions. It is a solid option if you:
- Prefer lightweight yet protective footgear specially crafted for day-long adventures in the snowy outdoors.
- Prefer footgear that combats odor and stink.
- Prefer footgear that has adequate weather protection.
Ample surface traction on the trail
Arctic Grip Dura, an exclusive Merrell outsole made by Vibram, is what grants hikers ample surface traction on the trail.
Excellent grip over icy terrain
As its name implies, this grippy layer—with its 5-mm multi-faceted lugs—offers the right amount of grip over icy terrain.
Adequate terrain protection, cushioning, and stability
The Thermo Rogue Mid GTX is equipped with a chunky midsole to give winter hikers adequate terrain protection, cushioning, and stability. It houses a molded arch shank made of nylon for extra medial support.
Comfortable cushioning and excellent arch support
Merrell designers snuck in a company-owned footbed called Kinetic Fit Base in this shoe to help the midsole up its cushioning game. This proprietary component, which is made of ethylene-vinyl acetate, also doubles down on arch support.
This over-the-ankle Merrell hiking boot has a part mesh, part TPU upper. It is engineered with a rubberized toe bumper for additional forefoot protection.
Its defense against all things wet is its Gore-Tex liner which also provides ample ventilation. 100 g of Primaloft Aerogel is applied to its main bootie to shield the foot from the freezing effects of the cold season. Its interior is protected from intrusive debris thanks to the boot’s bellows tongue.
