Too often are basic running shoes used to battle off-trail conditions. The result? Outsoles that are embarrassingly worn into the ground and an upper that is a shell of its former self. Instead, Merrell wants you to hit any trail with confidence in the latest iteration of the Moab Speed. Whether intended for the great outdoors or the city streets, the sneaker is primed to endure the elements through its sturdy, breathable and lightweight construction.
Available in a variety of options — from Black, Granite and Black/Asphalt, to flashier, more trail-inspired hues, such as Black/Multi and Tangerine — each iteration sports a GORE-TEX waterproof membrane with mesh and recycled TPU reinforcements across the base.
Additional details include 100-percent recycled laces, Merrell’s FloatPro Foam™ midsole offering a comfortable and lightweight fit atop of Vibram‘s ECOSTEP recycled rubber lug outsole. The Merrell Moab Speed is available to purchase in both a low-cut and mid option for £135 GBP / $165 USD and £145 GBP / $177 USD, respectively. Please visit the Montreal-based label’s website for more information.
