Merrell Agility Synthesis Zero GORE-TEX Trail Running Shoes
This winter trail runner with snow-stopping collar grips on mixed winter terrain and protects feet from cold-weather elements – without the bulk of heavy insulation.
Designed to provide comfort and protection, the Merrell Agility Synthesis Zero Trail Running Shoes have been constructed using a jacquard mesh and embroidered upper. The jacquard upper works to provide lightweight breathability and protection to keep your feet safe on rocky terrains. Acting as a lightweight second skin the mesh ensures you are able to go the distance in complete comfort. Perforations in the fabric encourage cool air to circulate, removing uncomfortable heat build-up to create a healthy environment for your foot to thrive in. Embroidered overlays have been strategically placed on the upper to provide durability and support where it's needed the most. The reinforcements wrap the foot in lightweight support to promote a secure fit that resists the risks of wear and tear. The bonded InvisibleFit upper offers lightweight, breathable protection that fits and feels like an unprotected shoe, for full protection out on the trail without compromising quick footing. Engineered with a GORE-TEX waterproof membrane, the Agility offers complete waterproof performance and exceptional breathability; step confidently and comfortably through wet and muddy terrain as the GORE-TEX membrane allows water vapor to escape without letting water droplets in. The GORE-TEX membrane resides inside the shoe; supplying a combination of durable waterproofing and optimised breathability. Sometimes it's hard to stay dry without developing that distracting clammy feeling, but GORE-TEX keeps water on the outside while letting perspiration escape from the inside; keeping sweat to a minimum and you, cool and comfy. The lacing system features a lace lock closure system for quick and secure lacing whilst a YKK zippered gaiter prevents weather and trail ingress.
FloatPro Foam Midsole
Within the midsole Merrell's signature FloatPro Foam has been used to ensure a light, durable ride. The midsole ensures ample underfoot cushioning to reduce the impact placed upon the feet on tough trails whilst remaining as lightweight as possible so you'll never feel weighed down. The lightweight midsole offers supreme cushioning and support to key areas like the arch and heel, holding the foot securely in place for a smoother transition and wear. By supporting these key areas of the foot, the midsole material can also help to offer enough support to help prevent discomfort and possible injury. As well as this, Merrell's signature Flex Connect technology has been used within the midsole to ensure enhanced ground connection. Flex Connect dual-directional flex grooves ensure a secure fit as well as a natural and serious grip to deliver agility and stability on any terrain. Completing the midsole is a removable EVA insole that offers better cushioning, durability, and increased breathability underfoot. The soft foam cushions your feet over long distances and increases ventilation to keep you cool when temperatures rise.
Developed using a Vibram outsole, the Agility Zero provides extreme grip and traction for all surface wear. Developed for extremely slippery terrain, the extremely durable rubber can form a solid bond with the ground to anchor you in place. Despite facing abuse from rough ground, the rubber stands up against this, deflecting the blows and retaining a strong shape and structure. Ensuring multi-directional grip the outsole ensures traction on varied terrain ensuring confident footing on varied terrain. The durable rubber provides a strong grip on the most challenging terrain; it works to protect itself from damage, and protect users from losing control and slipping. As well as this, a rock plate underfoot increases protection by reducing impacts as you strike down on hard, unforgiving surfaces. Completing the outsole are lugs that dig deep into the ground when braking or changing direction. The deep lugs are able to anchor the foot into the wet and muddy ground, securing you into place whilst also forming a solid base to push off from.
