Inspired by athletes and made for you, this hybrid packs all the technology needed for Moving Quickly in the Mountains™ into one fast, protective shoe.

Merrell took on the improbable of introducing a new way to move in the mountains after a few of their athlete ambassadors challenged them to build a shoe that has never been built before.

Inspired by professional mountaineers such as Mike Chambers, Simon Donato, and Jason Antin, the MQM Flex— which stands for “Moving Quickly in the Mountains”—is light and flexible enough to propel you up a mountain, yet stable and protective enough to allow you to charge back down.

The shoes offer a secure fit with a HyperlockTM heel, natural flex with bi-directional flex grooves, and serious grip with a durable, sticky rubber outsole. The MQM Flex comes in mid, low, and waterproof styles, and serves as the bridge between a hardcore hiking boot and an ultra-athletic trail runner, making it the ultimate hiking companion.
