If you've ever seen a mountain goat effortlessly perched on a narrow band of rocks, you've probably wished you could do the same. Well, the engineers at Merrell thought the exact same thing, so they developed a line of shoes that incorporate a hoof shaped sole for sure footing in high consequences terrain. Being the light and nimble shoe in the line, the Women's Capra Sport Hiking Shoe is designed for lightning fast ascents without compromising stability. At first glance you'll notice the shoes utilize a lightweight mesh upper that promotes excellent breathability. Stratafuse technology in the upper fuses an exoskeleton to the breathable mesh, resulting in a light and supportive foot cage. A gusseted tongue prevents rocks and debris from hitching a ride in your shoes, while an antimicrobial mesh lining prevents any obscene odors from taking hold in the shoes. Merrell's own UniFly midsole maintains an intuitive trail feel while protecting your feet from rough terrain at the same time. Additional cushioning in the heel comes into play on the descents, and the Vibram sole holds up long after you tick off all the summits on your hit list for the summer.
