As the weather starts to improve, the sun rises that little bit earlier and gradually sets later, more and more of us are inspired and encouraged to get out and enjoy the extended days. It’s Merrell that tells us ‘Let’s get Outside’ and thanks to their latest addition to the range of Merrell walking shoes, it’s easier for everyone to enjoy the outdoors.
Merrell footwear started life as a hiking specialist by manufacturing a range of top quality boots at a premium price, but soon switched to manufacturing a more affordable high-end boot and later a range of lightweight shoes. So understandably, it makes sense that when searching for the perfect shoe or boot for walking, Merrell shoes are the first choice.
One of the latest shoes to come out of Merrell HQ is the Merrell Avian Light Sport shoe, a lightweight and durable walking shoe that offers comfort and protection for a wide variety of walking levels and terrain. Available in variations for both men and women, the Avian Light shoes may look like a stylish and simple shoe but they certainly pack a punch when it comes to footwear technology.
Merrell walking shoes for men and women take the most up-to-date features and introduce them to their footwear range in a way that works in harmony with the Merrell ethics. The Merrell Avian Light Sport shoes feature a superb lightweight Vibram sole that offers stability and comfort and the Merrell air cushion in the heel for shock absorption and additional stability. Inside, these Merrell shoes take comfort and cleanliness seriously with Ortholite anatomical footbed, and revolutionary antimicrobial protection from Aegis Microbe Shield, an antimicrobial barrier against bacteria, fungus and other microorganisms.
Furthermore, Merrell understand the importance of recognising the difference between men and women’s feet. Ladies have wider hips which affect their angle with the knee and so causes the woman’s strike to be concentrated on the outside of the foot. They correct this by shifting weight towards the inside of the foot which in turn can result in pain and discomfort. To combat this way of movement Merrell introduced the QForm Comfort midsole into their Merrell women’s walking shoes – something that the Avian Light Sport shoes benefits from.
Merrell’s Avian Light shoes are also available in a GTX sport variant with GORE-TEX® Performance Comfort footwear lining for dryness and protection, and a mid boot for enhanced stability and support while tackling tougher terrain.
Merrell support the outdoors and have done for some time by supporting likeminded organisations that encourage the exploration of the natural world. Merrell footwear has always had walkers in mind and is committed to manufacturing footwear to keep you going for years to come. Get the latest styles at FitnessFootwear.com.
