Size and fit

The Merrell All Out Blaze 2 is a day hiking shoe offered to men and women. It generally runs true to size and comes in standard width. There are full and half sizes too. The front lace-up closure delivers a customized fit to the wearer.

Outsole

The slip-resistant Vibram TC5+  gives underfoot protection and grip. It has a 4.5 mm lug depth which bites on most terrain. The tread patterns create a channel to drive water out, preventing slips.

Midsole

The All Out Blaze 2 combines a compression-molded EVA midsole and FIT.ECO blended EVA footbed for comfort and cushioning. The latter also helps in controlling odor. The Air Cushion Viz feature adds an EVA material on the heel for steadiness and shock absorption.  A molded nylon shank enhances stability and renders arch support.

Upper

With a full-grain leather and mesh combination, the All Out Blaze 2 from Merrell upper is made durable yet flexible. It is reinforced with a protective die-cut toe cap which acts as a buffer against bumps and a bellows tongue that keeps rubble out. Its traditional lacing system comprises three types of eyelets. It is lined with a breathable mesh with M.Select FRESH to prevent the growth of odor-causing microorganisms. A pull tab is added to the heel to assist in on and off.
