Merrell technology means that you get protection and stability in each product. The EVA is a dense foam which acts as an excellent and durable shock absorber in the sole of many shoes. Nubuck Leather is top-grain cattle leather that has been sanded or buffed on the grain side, or outside, to give a slight nap of short protein fibres, producing a velvet-like surface. It is resistant to wear. M-Select GRIP outsoles deliver durable, highly slip-resistant stability on wet and dry ground, over mixed terrain. Groundbreaking Arctic Grip outsole compound lets you tread everywhere in confidence.
