Merrell Nova 2 Mid GORE-TEX Trail Running Shoes
Featuring sneaker-light comfort and hiker-like durability, Nova 2 offers the perfect escape vehicle for when you're ready to answer the call of the wild.
The Merrell Nova GORE-TEX Trail Running Shoe is constructed using a mesh and TPU upper and with a breathable mesh lining; the mesh allows air to fully permeate the upper providing a supply of cool, fresh air whilst simultaneously forcing out hot, muggy air that resides in the shoe during heavy exertion. The bonded InvisibleFit constructed upper offers lightweight, breathable protection that fits and feels like an unprotected shoe, for full protection whilst out on the trail without compromising quick footing. Engineered with a GORE-TEX waterproof membrane, the Nova GORE-TEX 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. A breathable mesh lining works with M-Select FRESH antimicrobial agents to keep you feeling cooler and fresher for longer; the antimicrobial agents reside in the shoe lining and materials preventing sweat and moisture from affecting the freshness of your shoe by penetrating and disrupting the reproduction of the odor-causing microbes in your shoes. The hyperlock TPU Film Heel Counter combined with the traditional lace closure system provides a secure fit locking the foot into the shoe and anchoring to the midsole to reduce in-shoe slippage for quick descents and sharp turns.
Compression Molded EVA Midsole
The EVA removable insole and compression molded EVA midsole provides exceptional stability and comfort, whilst offering the opportunity to insert different insoles for the optimum fit depending on your needs. The compression molded EVA midsole provides stability, agility, and comfort, supporting the natural motion of the foot and providing comfort through the gait cycle and ultimately reducing those harmful shock and impact forces. The molded nylon arch shank provides a supportive structure that resides between the insole and the outsole; diminishing the load incurred on your feet and calves over the course of your adventure the molded nylon arch shank helps to reduce fatigue.
Designed with Vibram TC5+ these shoes are designed for those who want a challenge; with the best combination of traction and durability, these trail running shoes are perfect for slippery and challenging terrain. The high-performance rubber compound offers grip and traction on wet and dry surfaces in the most extreme temperatures and with the outsole design boasting no lugs underneath the arch, your foot is encouraged to flex more naturally with greater comfort – the ideal shoe for demanding activity. Finished with the TrailProtect Pad for additional support when on tricky off-road terrain, the underfoot comfort and protection against sharp debris and rocks prepare you for any challenge that may come your way.
