Strap on your backpack, and get ready to dig your feet into the dirt with the Sawtooth. These Merrell boots capture the essence of the hike. Built to tackle longer adventures into unknown territory, the hiker contains a Nubuck leather and mesh upper with Ballisticore. This will keep debris out, especially in the tongue region. The insole is built for trekking, and the midsole contains a compression-molded EVA footframe. Air cushioning in the heel helps absorb shock and gives additional stability. The Vibram outsole offers extra traction and control. Pick up the pace, and get outside with the Merrell Sawtooth.
