Ready, set, traction
Sneakers look great, but they are usually not made for long walks in nature. These shoes, however, have amazing traction, so you can walk up any mountain confidently. The soles consist of adhesive rubber: material that ensures a maximum grip on the ground. In short: you won’t easily slip away!
Merrell didn’t forget about the planet while designing the shoes. The lace, webbing, lining and the foot bed cover of the shoes are 100% recycled.
The shoes were specially designed to fit your feet perfectly without squeezing them in any place.
The Bravada 2 hiker shoes provide maximum support for your feet and the rest of your body. You can take out the soles of the shoes, so they are a great option for people that need arch support. The air cushions in the heel serve as shock absorbers, to avoid any damage to your joints. And the shoes were specially designed to fit your feet perfectly without squeezing them in any place. Happy feet, happy life.
The shoes come in two fun colors: burgundy and navy. The burgundy shoes have a dark and rich color, pink accents and black laces. The navy shoes are a lighter version with gray accents. Both of them have a modern and sporty look. A waterproof version is also available.
