Merrell boots are designed to be worn for outdoor activities. They are available in standard shoe sizes for men and women. When trying on any style of boots, remember to wear the type of socks that you would normally wear with hiking boots. Hiking boots usually require thicker socks as opposed to sport-style shoes which would require light or medium weight socks. The type and thickness of your socks may make an impact on the type and size of boot that you will choose.

Qualities of Merrell Boots

Many people prefer to use Merrell boots as opposed to shoes for hiking and similar activities. Merrell boot styles have many special features including the Merrell Flex Insole System. This system provides a long-lasting insole that is unaffected by moisture, protects the feet, and will not break down. The insole is three-dimensional, injection molded, and contoured to the bottom of the foot, so it is very protective over your feet during strenuous activities.

The insoles of Merrell boots make a large impact on your performance. With each step or jump, the insole helps to stabilize your foot. This also prevents injuries and twisted ankles from occurring when you are performing on uneven terrain. Even stronger insoles are used for the heavy duty Merrell backpacking boots. This tapered injection-nylon insole helps to provide added stability for carrying heavy loads on different types of terrain.

Merrell uses a variety of leather materials for their boots. Leathers include nubuck, pittards, full grain, reverse full grain, pigskin, and split leather. Each type of leather has its own features and level of strength for use in different types of climates and for different outdoor activities. The strongest leather is the reverse full grain leather because it is very thick and super-resistant to abrasion.
