From time to time we can get some rough winters. The ones that leave sheets of ice around parking lots for weeks. You don’t have to walk in fear of falling anymore with Merrell’s new Arctic Grip Winter Boots. We’re not talking boots with spikes in them, we are talking a regular pair of winter boots with an amazing outsole that will keep you upright and won’t mark up floors when you move inside.
Merrell worked with Vibram for over two years to get Arctic Grip right. The outcome, an outsole that has 3 times more grip on wet ice and slippery surfaces. While most winter boots stop at just using deep lugs, Arctic Grip goes further with an advanced filler system in the lugs to help maximize stability. Notice the blue lug near the front of the outsole? That is a thermochromatic lug meaning it changes color with the temperature. When the lug changes to blue it’s an indicator that the ground temperature has dipped below 32 degrees. Are your boots that smart?
Stop by one of our locations to see the Merrell Moab FST Ice+ Thermo boot. Merrell takes their most popular boot, the Moab, and winterizes it with Arctic Grip outsole and M select WARM lightweight, low bulk 100 gram insulation. These boots will help keep you on the trail no matter what direction the winter goes.
