Merrell MQM Flex Gore-Tex

STORY BY Patrick 27th July 2018

If you’re looking for tough footwear for a short or longer run or hike that doesn’t weigh your feet down, Merrell’s innovative MQM Flex Shoes (RRP £115) are one of the fastest, lightest hiking shoes on the market.

A hybrid between an ultra-trail running shoe and a hardcore hiking boot, Vermont-based outdoor footwear brand Merrell have worked with its team of athlete ambassadors on the MQM Flex Shoe  design.

The company, now the world’s number one brand in this sector, has focused on key elements to allow for a light, flexible shoe that is strong enough to power you up the mountain and stable enough to protect you on the way down.

This amor-like trail shoe protects you from the roughest terrains without weighing you down. The flex offers first class protection for extreme running conditions, resulting in extra support under the foot.

The shoe’s Gore-Tex Invisible Fit waterproof feature is also designed to keep your feet bone dry in rainy runs and sloshy tracks providing excellent traction and support.

The MQM features an EVA foam midsole, a firm sole with added grooves that is both reactive and responsive. The upper part of the shoe includes a mesh and TPU (thermoplastic polyurethane) to help lighten the shoe and increase the breathability, without sacrificing protection.

The shoe’s extra swatches of ballistic mesh acts as a safeguard against seeping moisture and scratches. With a Gore-Tex membrane, you have yourself a winning shoe for any trail conditions.
