Using the most advanced cold weather gripping system ever created by Vibram, Arctic Grip. Offering unparalleled traction on wet ice and slippery winter surfaces.
The Merrell Capra Glacial ICE+ uses a coated leather upper with Merrell's M-Select DRY which seals out water and let's moisture escape so you stay dry when you're on the move. Designed with a traditional lace closure, it keeps the foot secure while the bellows tongue helps keep loose debris out while walking on loose terrain.
Don't worry about getting cold feet, as the midsole is equipped with M-Select WARM which offers lightweight insulation, creating micro-spaces that trap body heat and reflecting it to deliver efficient warmth without the bulk, retaining its loft without sacrificing compressibility for easy packing. For added comfort, the conductor fleece lining ensures added warmth, while the Merrell M-Select FIT.ECO blended EVA contoured footbed provides organic odour control, keeping your shoes smelling fresher for longer. With the use of Merrell's Air Cushion, which is located in the heel, it absorbs shock and adds stability. The Air Cushion compresses on heel strike to absorb shock up to four times the body's weight for unmatched support and comfort. Additionally, it creates a pronounced heel cup which keeps the heel centered and helps stabilise the foot. Lastly, the Capra Glacial ICE+ offers support thanks to the moulded nylon arch shank which offers just enough bend to create a more natural movement in your feet, while providing plenty of support to help ease some stress on your arches.
Equipped with the most advanced cold weather gripping system ever created by Vibram, the Arctic Grip offers innovative technology specifically engineered and designed to perform on wet ice. The outsole is made for low-temperature use and provides improved grip on cold, icy, or snowy surfaces compared to existing Vibram soles. The outsole is designed with a thermochromatic lug on each sole which turns white to blue as the temperature is near 0 degrees Celsius, serving as an indicator to let the wearer know the temperature is low enough for ice formulation.
