Providing hikers with adequate traction over mixed terrain is the M-Select Grip outsole. Rain or shine, this hardwearing Merrell-exclusive component can produce and maintain grip, thanks primarily to its 4.5-millimeter, diamond-shaped lugs. Outside traction, this grippy layer also provides toe protection with its extension covering the tip of the footwear’s toe box.

It stands up against intrusive debris with the help of the shoe’s bellows tongue. It also has proper water protection as its liner is imbued with M-Select Dry.
