For a grip that mimics nature.
Embrace your inner lizard as you prowl the myriad of desert vistas that Utah has to offer by doing so laced up in the Merrel Men's Chameleon 7 Stretch. Take the tricky routes through canyons and hoodoos and these shoes will help you role-play a reptilian lifestyle. A breathable mesh lining keeps your feet cool and comfortable as you soak up the sun, while the protective rubber toe cap keeps your toes pain-free for canyoneering. Plus, the Kinetic Fit footbed wards of the aches and pains of an all-day adventure.
Taking cues from the chameleon's ability to adapt, Merrell set out to design a hiking boot that offers stability without excess weight. It placed the Vibram TC5+ lugs only where needed, for a 25% reduction in weight. The lugs are combined with the Lightweight FlexPlate, inspired by Merrell's running shoe line, providing torsional rigidity for feather-light performance. The slip-on nature of the 7 Stretch makes it easy to grab and go, slipping it on when you step out the front door or crawl out the vestibule of your tent.

Can't Go Wrong

A fantastic pair of shoes, you really can't go wrong with them. The thing most I love is the breathability in these. My feet perspire a bit much and these definitely are a solution with the right socks as well. Yet there is some leather on it as well to make it look good! Plus I love the easiness of the bungee system being able to get in and out, but getting just the right comfort is really nice. Then comes all together having a really great grip, not letting you go anywhere regardless where you step.

I bought these as a gift for my Dad. He only wears these shoes and swears by them. He said that they are super breathable, have great traction and are very comfortable. My dad not only wears them out and about, but wears them in the operating room as well. He loves them!
