Get your pulse up and blaze over trail rubble in the Merrell Men's Pulsate Hiking Shoe. With a specially designed sole that provides excellent grip on variable terrain while also quickly releasing debris, the Pulsate doesn't let sketchy or loose sections of trail slow you down. The shoe's bellows tongue is attached at both sides to keep debris out, and the toe bumper protects the front of the shoe from run ins with rocks and roots. The shock absorbing EVA midsole and air cushion in the heel pad each and every step, while the molded nylon arch shank supports the foot. Inside the shoe, an antimicrobial lining and footbed treatment prevents perspiration buildup and odor causing bacteria, keeping your feet fresher and the shoe lasting through a long season of hard hiking.
