The need for speed.
The Merrell Men's Capra Sport GTX Hiking Shoe is surprisingly superlight for how supportive it is on speedy ascents. Gore-Tex provides waterproof, breathable protection so you can get out in any condition, and the Stratafuse exoskeleton upper fuses the breathable mesh upper with durable synthetic overlays in an ultralight design for gram-counting minimalists. M-Select Fresh keeps odors at bay after long treks, and the bellows tongue keeps debris out.
Underfoot, Merrell equipped the Capra Sport with a Unifly midsole for a surprising amount of impact absorption. Merrell's Air Cushion adds long-lasting cush to the heel, and the removable EVA footbed gives you more comfort when you want it. The TrailProtect Pad adds stability on rugged terrain, and the molded nylon arch shank ensures support on the long days. Vibram's reliable rubber uses a MegaGrip design that lives up to its name.

- Q & A
Merrell's Are Always Great Shoes!
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
- Fit: True to size
- Size Bought: 12
Merrell's have always been great shoes and again they have not let me down with these. Great support, comfortable, good cushion. My only complaint is that my feet tend to get a little warm in them when I am running around the DC all day. Other than that these are great shoes, you won't regret your purchase!
- Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
- Fit: Runs small
I bought these for hiking, returned them because I didn't like the tread on them.

This is my fourth pair of Merrell shoes. They are alway true to size. They are very comfortable, very well made, supportive and hold up very well. I have a pair for work, trail running, and hiking. They are great shoes.
