The Merrell Men's Capra Mid Sport GTX Hiking Boot encourages speedy ascents on long trails with or without a big backpack on. Gore Tex provides waterproof, breathable protection so you can get out in any condition, and the Stratafuse exoskeleton upper fuses the breathable mesh upper with durable synthetic overlays in an ultralight design for gram counting minimalists. M Select Fresh keeps odors at bay after long treks, and the bellows tongue keeps debris out. Underfoot, Merrell equipped the Capra Mid Sport with a Unifly midsole for a surprising amount of impact absorption. Merrell's Air Cushion adds long lasting cush to the heel, and the removable EVA footbed gives you more comfort when you want it. The TrailProtect Pad adds stability on rugged terrain, and the molded nylon arch shank ensures support on the long days. Vibram's reliable rubber uses a MegaGrip design that lives up to its name.
