As adaptable as the reptile it’s inspired by, this ventilated hiker features protection, stability, and ultra-lightweight construction. Elastic cord and locking system for quick secure fit. Stretch collar for easy on and off. Merrell air cushion in the heel absorbs shock and adds stability. Lightweight Flexplate protects feet from stone bruising and sharp rocks with an impact resistant and resilient plate that runs the entire length of the shoe. Grippy and durable Vibram TC5+ rubber molded multi-directional ovals for quick-change performance when shifting speeds, sites, and steepness of terrain; lugs are placed precisely (and only) where needed across the smooth Flexplate material to shed mud easily and reduce weight.
