When the going gets rough, the rough get going.
Only the strong survive. That's the general gist of evolution anyway, and the Men's Merrell Chameleon 7 Mid Waterproof is designed with adaptability in mind. Nowhere is biodiversity more varied and vicious than a tropical jungle, but you've got a leg up on mother nature. Thanks to its M Select Dry membrane and Vibram lugs, you're going to have waterproof protection worthy of a tough skinned reptile and the sticky feet of a crawling chameleon.
Blending stability with lightweight construction, Merrell places Vibram TC5+ only where truly needed, freeing up the rest of the sole to benefit from a FlexPlate that offers torsional rigidity. A breathable mesh lining keeps that swamp you're exploring from developing inside your shoe, and metal hook and lacing eyelets provide a secure fit as you struggle through a forest of vines and carnivorous flowers. A contoured footbed and molded TPU heel provide all day comfort and stability, giving you the strength and stamina to get you out into the sun again in a single piece.
