Stay fresh and upright on slippery trails.
Get your pulse up and blaze over trail rubble in the Merrell Men's Pulsate Hiking Shoe. With a specially-designed sole that provides excellent grip on variable terrain while also quickly releasing debris, the Pulsate doesn't let sketchy or loose sections of trail slow you down. The shoe's bellows tongue is attached at both sides to keep debris out, and the toe bumper protects the front of the shoe from run-ins with rocks and roots. The shock-absorbing EVA midsole and air cushion in the heel pad each and every step, while the molded nylon arch shank supports the foot. Inside the shoe, an antimicrobial lining and footbed treatment prevents perspiration buildup and odor-causing bacteria, keeping your feet fresher and the shoe lasting through a long season of hard hiking.

- Q & A
Not sized right
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
- Fit: Runs large
- Size Bought: 12
I have been wearing the pulsate mid hiking shoes for the last 2 years , have bought 3 pairs and they are by far my favorite hiking shoe , I was very happy to find them here in a low version . I wear a size 12 and all 3 pairs that I have are a size 12 and fit perfectly , these shoes I ordered here are definitely not the same size 12, they are much wider and overall just a much looser fit , I talked to customer service to find out if perhaps these were a wide and was told that they are not , I took them out hiking today and they are definitely comfortable but I am afraid they are much too loose to use as a hiking shoe . Since they are now muddy and used I can't return them but thats ok , I will just use them as my daily shoes , they are comfortable and well made , it's unfortunate that there is a sizing issue though .
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Fit: True to size
I bought these for my husband, and they're a favorite. Merrell always delivers top quality at a good price. They're exactly as pictured and a great fit. Would definitely recommend these for any guys who are tough on their shoes.
