Merrell’s Agility Collection Trail Running Shoe Combines Technical Support With Comfort
Trail running shoes are all about providing support and agility in un-even terrain. Merrell’s Agility Collection, however, adds another design element that includes comfort. According to Kelley Ballou, at Merrell, the incorporation of the company’s Flex-Connect Technology, allowed them to create a shoe that avid trail runners would appreciate, but with added comfort and shock absorption that will be especially helpful on long trail runs.
The trail running shoe has a unique sole that mimics the metatarsals of the foot, which according to Ballou, helps to provide a better connection to the trail. While the shoe provides upward flexibility for running up hills, Merrell also added downward flexibility and a hyper-lock heel for added stability and fit. The shoe also has features such as a slightly wider toe box which allows feet to splay out a bit and adds to the overall comfort of the shoe.
