Hike fast wet or dry as the mesh upper drains moisture and the air cushion midsole allows for amphibious ventures in the Merrell Maipo Waterpro walking shoes.
The upper of the Merrell Maipo Waterpro Walking Shoes is constructed with a synthetic leather and mesh. The synthetic leather provides durability while the mesh ensures ventilation throughout the shoes, enabling the feet to breathe, feel cool and dry. The Waterpro runs and hikes fast either wet or dry and is a prime candidate for canyoneering as the mesh upper drains automatically via ports in the micro mesh upper and in the antimicrobial footbed. The dynamic lacing system provides a support fit while the tongue and collar ensure maximum comfort to the wearer. While it provides comfort, the collar is made with lycra and neoprene, enabling it to stretch which makes it easy for the wearer to get the shoes on and off quickly with no hassle. Equipped with a synthetic leather protective toe bumper that will help keep your feet safe on the rocky trails while also providing integrated drainage ports.
The midsole of the Merrell Maipo features a hydro drainage ventilated footbed which ensures the water can easily escape freely from the shoe which provides comfort and quick drying properties. With an anti-friction lining which is treated to be anti-microbial as well as comfortable for your feet. Equipped with the Merrell air cushion in the heel which provides the cushioning you need for all-day comfort and the control you need for the support in all kinds of terrains. It's been engineered so that each step provides compression necessary to absorb up to 4 times the body's weight, with a pronounced heel cup keeping the foot centered for greater stability. Lastly, the midsole features a moulded nylon arch shank which stiffens the shoe, making the middle portion of the shoe more resistant to torsion and flexion.
The outsole of the shoe is made with Vibram which can go mile after mile, as the high-performance rubber outsole can take on tough terrains with unmatched durability, stability and slip resistance. The sole is designed to provide excellent traction on the widest range of surfaces with it's 3.5mm lug depth, which enables you to get outside and connect to the earth with the Vibram outsole.
The Merrell Maipo Waterpro Walking Shoes are vegan-friendly as they use 0% animal products while providing 100% comfort and style.
