Our verdict

Well made and tough shoe as you would expect from Merrell. Midsole is fairly basic however.

  • Positive
  • Tough and durable
  • Perfect for rocky trail
  • Negative
  • A bit clunky

First impressions

Suited to long days on the trails on rough, rocky terrain, this shoe features a Vibram outsole for traction and durability and a deep dual density midsole for cushioning and support.

Midsole

The midsole incorporates a medial post to control pronation but given the nature of the terrain the shoe will encounter; we’d say it’s more to provide general stability and maintain a generally steady footing. 

Upper

It’s a very well-constructed shoe, with a strong upper, so able to handle rugged mountain terrain with ease. The upper has a bootie construction that fits very well and feels snug and secure from the very first step. 

Sole

The outsole lugs are 5mm deep and made with the Vibram Metagrip compound. They are multi-directional, so work very well as you descend and ascend steep surfaces.

Conclusion

Given the brand’s heritage this shoe really should be very much at home in the hills.
