Merrell has taken their extremely popular MQM (Move Quickly in Mountains) series and improved it. The second iteration features tear-resistant uppers, cushioned midsole, and a 5 mm lug outsole provide durability, comfort, and grip. A bellows tongue protects again dirt and debris getting inside and a TPU toe cap provides a little extra protection up front. All the features of a trail-runner combined with a hiker into one incredible shoe. Oh, and it's vegan.
