Rugged, Comfortable, Eco-Friendly, Supportive, Durable
Imagine setting off at dawn, the first light of day cutting through the canopy, the trail ahead rough and ready. You're equipped with boots that are a testament to adventure, a collaboration between icons that embody the spirit of exploration. These are boots that don't just take you places; they challenge you to go further, to push through the rugged terrain with the confidence of legendary heritage at your feet.
The boots embrace the earth, not just in the trails they tread but in their very make-up, with recycled materials woven into their design. The gold-rated leather is not only a nod to durability but also to a style that speaks of timeless outdoor aesthetics. They cradle your feet with a Kinetic Fit™ Advanced footbed, adapting to every contour for a stride that feels as natural as the path beneath you.
Traction is paramount when the ground gets tough, and the Vibram® TC5+ outsole is a promise of grip and performance in any condition. Whether it's a slippery slope after a rainstorm or a dusty ascent under a scorching sun, these boots are steadfast. And when the trail throws unexpected jolts and jags, the Merrell Air Cushion stands ready to absorb the shock, keeping you moving with ease.
The thoughtful inclusion of a protective rubber heel and toe cap means that stray roots and rocks won't slow you down, allowing you to step with purpose and protection. The mid-height design provides that extra support for your ankles, essential when you're navigating the undulating and unpredictable.
These boots, weighing in at a solid 16.3 ounces, are not just gear; they're a commitment to sustainable adventuring, made evident by their 100% recycled laces, webbing, and mesh lining. It's a stride in the right direction, for both you and the planet.
As you weave through the wilderness, the 5 mm lug depth ensures every step is solid, while the 11.5 mm drop keeps your posture primed for the long haul.
In these boots, you're not just walking; you're part of a lineage of adventurers who understand that the best stories are found off the beaten path. The Merrell Moab 3 Mid X Jeep isn't just a boot; it's a call to the wild, to the spirit of exploration that lies in wait. It's an invitation to step out and embark on an adventure that's as enduring as the boots on your feet.
