Merrell 2014 Autumn/Winter Collection

The new Merrell 2014 Autumn/Winter Collection consisting of new designs of popular favourites along with fresh styles for a wide range of walking shoes and winter boots ready for treks and trails throughout the cooler time of year is now available with us here at Fitness Footwear. 

Merrell MoabOne of the main distinctive changes in this latest range of Merrell shoes and boots which has been applied to the majority of the range is the wet-look oily leather uppers which besides looking stylish offer plenty of climate protection and durability.  Some of the footwear in the Merrell 2014 Autumn/Winter Collection is available with or without other brand components like GORE-TEX for waterproofing and Vibram designed outsoles for lasting reliable grip and traction but there are also models that feature Merrell’s own technologies as well.

The exclusive Merrell tech includes their M-Select series like FRESH and GRIP plus the WTPF waterproof liner all of which have been enhanced recently to provide a greater overall walking and hiking experience.  Included in this latest Merrell range are bestselling designs like the renowned Merrell Moab Rover footwear which this year sees low and mid-profile versions, plus the coveted versatile Moc style.  Other familiar shoes like the Merrell Azura ladies shoes and the Merrell Allout Blaze trainers have the same premier qualities that make them formidable yet lightweight sports shoes but with newer colouring and even cold weather technologies like the Winter Compound on the Azura. 

For those that want footwear that offers a bit more visually for everyday or even for specific occasions the fashion boots style of Merrell Captiva and Merrell Dewbrook boots offer the technical performance and protection you can expect from the brand while looking great.  The Merrell Traveler and Helixes Shoes are the men’s equivalent but rather than appealing as high fashionable styles like the Merrell ladies boots these are more for casual wear so they are subdued but sleek.  However the Merrell Annex walking shoes combine an active sports design with weatherproof and comfort qualities that work just as well walking around town or hiking a trail. 

Whatever your style, preferred trail any time of the year there is something to keep you feet supported and comfy with each foot-strike thanks to the Merrell 2014 Autumn/Winter Collection.

Waterproof Walking Shoes & Wellies

If you love getting active in the outdoors the time of year or possibly even location may not matter all that much; but if you hike in the UK or during the wetter seasons then it may be worth your while to invest in a pair of Waterproof Walking Shoes & Wellies to help keep you dry and comfy on the trail.

Waterproof Walking ShoesAt Fitness Footwear we know that quality is key when it comes to decent boots and shoes which is why our range of Waterproof Walking Shoes comes from brands like Merrell, Salomon, Jack Wolfskin and Keen whose reputation in designing and manufacturing speaks for themselves.  They manage to merge style with practicality by utilising tried and tested fabrics like Nubuck leather, suede and synthetic mesh which look good and can protect from abrasion and have natural water resistance which are complimented by known technologies like GORE-TEX waterproof liners or bespoke ones like Merrell M-Select DRY.

Walking and Hiking shoe interiors tend to have plenty of supportive and stabilising features like EVA midsoles, cushioned footbeds and heel counters plus arch shanks as well so that even after a long enjoyable day hiking your feet still feel comfortable; while the outsoles are built to perform on wet and unreliable terrain with thicker lugs, often Vibram designed and constructed and some have treatment for better grip and traction like Salomon’s Contagrip or Merrel’s M-Select GRIP for wintry conditions.

ww BlackAs for Wellies; you expect them to be waterproof and a little more so than shoes due to being thigh high but the Bogs Wellies we have here are a little bit more impressive than your usual pair.  Bogs Wellington Boots are made with a four-way stretch inner bootie making them pretty flexible and outsoles that rival the grip and traction of the most technical Hiking footwear so they are much more functional and versatile than normally expected.  We also have plenty of the popular and very fashionable Havaianas Wellies as well.

You can find the right type of Waterproof Walking Shoes & Wellies for all kinds of treks, trails or events like festivals here at some of the best prices around online.
