As part of the new collection with same name signed by MERRELL, the Capra shoe has its strength in the grip provided by the Vibram® Agile sole, which makes it ideal for wet terrain and the most extreme conditions. But there is more: the Merrell Unifly midsole for example, which is thicker under the heel and thinner at the toe, improves the feeling and agility when walking. Instead the design with lacing up to the toe provides huge stability up and down hill.
Created exclusively for Merrell, the Vibram® Agile sole has a wide surface area at the toe to emphasise grip on rocky ground, while the grooves on the shank favour the traction on broken terrain. The design of the tread features the Vibram® Hexa-Base lugs, developed to improve stability and traction. The sole is created using the exclusive Vibram® Megagrip compound, which ensures excellent grip in the wet. This compound, combined with the design of the tread characterized by a host of channels to drain water, contributes to enhancing the sole's safety and gripping properties on wet ground.
