  • The Merrell Cham 7 Slam Luna Leather is a lightweight shoe made for day hikes. Its full-grain leather upper comes in two variants, Amber Ale and Porter, both of which are inspired by the different shades of premium beer.
  • The shoe’s ethylene-vinyl acetate (EVA) midsole provides cushioning while its Merrell Flexplate technology grants full-foot stability. Traction on most types of terrain is achieved through the footwear’s Vibram outsole.

The Merrell Cham 7 Slam Luna Leather is a low-cut hiking shoe that fairly runs true to size. It is available in standard width for male adventurers. It is offered in whole and half sizes. The fit can be customized through the hiker’s closure system.

Enabling the Merrell Cham 7 Slam Luna Leather to grip on various types of surfaces is a Vibram outsole. It features strategically laid out pods which deliver traction, underfoot protection, durability and stability. Moreover, the front section extends upward to prevent stubbing.

This hiking shoe is equipped with Merrell’s Flexplate technology for lightweight stability, underfoot protection, and rigidity. The plate itself is made of varying densities, making the one end stiff and the other flexible. It houses an EVA midsole which grants cushioning to the wearer.

The brand’s patented Air Cushion feature is found at the heel to reduce shock. The shoe’s Kinetic Fit Base removable footbed is contoured and provides a kind of support that’s flexible and intuitive.

This Merrell product has an upper made of sturdy full-grain leather. It contains a mesh lining for improved breathability. The forefoot section features a rand, making the shoe more durable.

The Merrell Cham 7 Slam Luna Leather’s closure system uses a series of eyelets and two metal hooks and round synthetic laces. Donning and doffing the footgear is made easier through the pull tab at the heel. Its collar and tongue are padded for a plush feel.

  • The Merrell Cham 7 Slam Luna Leather’s colors are inspired by the Founders Brewing Company and the beer they produce.
  • An additional set of laces comes with the package.
