Description

The Merrell Zion GTXs are – very deliberately – inspired by a sneaker design and feel, following the trend set by Adidas Terrex and Columbia’s new SH/FT Outdry range for hiking shoes to almost look like a pair of super-cool fashion trainers.

They have a Gore-Tex membrane which, as you will know from the well-known brand, offers waterproof and breathable performance. Accordingly, it’s earned a permanent spot on our packing list for trips when we know we’ll be visiting both towns or cities and wild landscapes.At 816g per pair these feel almost impossibly light in the hands and that translates to a trainer like feeling - at least in terms of weight - on the feet. But we’ll confess to, at times, having been those day hikers that are more concerned with keeping our boots looking pristine than being good trail stewards. For torsional rigidity Merrell have added their FlexPlate™ technology and to keep you stable on all types of terrain each pair finishes with a durable Vibram® Megagrip outsole, complete with grippy with 5mm lugs. So let’s try and cut through this ‘spin’ and analyse whether the technology actually performs out in the field.

Thanks to the GORE-TEX membrane the boot is also waterproof, even in the pouring rain, so the wearer always enjoys dry comfort. This means Royal Mails tracking information is reliant on the international postal company communicating the status of the shipment. Adding to the durability is a thick rubber rand up front to protect against scuffs and scrapes from rocks.

We are also impressed with the lace up closure which includes metallic eyelets, fabric loops and integrated webbing which wraps around the laces to achieve a locked in fit. The Takeaway: The affordable Zion combines the support and performance of a hiker with a stylish trim that’s at home in urban settings.

Unless we’re heading into a swampy forest where we prefer a taller-cuffed boot, the Zion has become our go-to for wet-weather hiking. Garments engineered with GORE-TEX® Active product technology are built for extreme breathability and are ideal for highly aerobic, done in a day activities.

Unfortunately, these qualities make it wear down more quickly, though our pair is still in good shape. Each GORE-TEX® product class consists of a distinct laminate package including specific core technologies such as membrane, production processes and textile choices.

If your parcel is small and of low value, it will be sent via Royal Mail Tracked 48, other items will be sent via courier. I joked with my girlfriend Nic that I’d use them to do a couple of kick-flips, Tony Hawks style, if only I could find my rusty, cobweb-covered skateboard in the shed.

Overall, Merrell claims these have a ‘hiking boots meet sneakers’ dynamic that’s perfect for work or the trail. Most purchases from business sellers are protected by the Consumer Contract Regulations 2013 which give you the right to cancel the purchase within 14 days after the day you receive the item. Megagrip is softer and tackier than many other rubber compounds, making it better at glomming and holding onto uneven and slick surfaces. Garments engineered with GORE-TEX® Shakedry product technology are bult for ultra lightweight performance.
