Less is more.
You don't need all the high-tech gadgetry to hike comfortably when the Merrell Women's Proterra Mid Gore-Tex Hiking Shoe exists. A Gore-Tex ConnectFit membrane helps keep your foot dry on wet trails, and it leaves the shoe highly breathable so your foot doesn't overheat. Its Stratafuse upper offers a glove-like fit for your foot, and Merrell coated the leather with polyurethane for long-lasting durability. M-Select Fresh naturally prevents odor to keep the shoe from smelling up your tent or the back of your car. The mid-height cuff provides a bit of ankle support for overnight packs without bringing the stiffness associated with full-height hiking boots.
A bellows tongue keeps debris out of the Proterra, and you can remove the EVA footbed after extremely dirty trails. Merrell designed its polyurethane-coated midsole minimally for optimized traction and ground contact, and the TPU shank offers all-day stability over technical terrain. Its M-Select Grip sole enhances the shoe's durability and your traction on those slippery slopes.
