We are super excited to introduce you to an all new hiking boot and shoe from Merrell. To win the all new Zion hiking boot or shoe enter our social media giveaway now through September 16th. We recently took the Zion Mid Waterproof hiking boot for a weekend trip to the desert for some hiking and camping.
We expected cooler temperatures, so the first thing we noticed about the Zion was the ventilation features. The Zion features a ballistic mesh and leather upper with a breathable lining. M Select Dry is also employed to let moisture escape and it works to keep moisture out as well. The full grain leather is also waterproof.
I’m a huge fan of a mid boot that is lightweight and the Zion really delivers! The Zion is built on a running platform and it fits and feels like a sneaker that is made for casual and tough hiking. Here in Southern California much of our trails are rugged and rocky, especially in the desert, and these hikers move quickly while giving you the protection that you need from rocks, ruts, and peskier elements too, like yucca plants and cactus.
Some other notable features on the Merrell Zion include a Vibram Megagrip sole, lightweight FlexPlate™ technology, Dual-density EVA inserts for extra cushioning, a compression molded EVA midsole for added stability and comfort, Merrell Kinetic Fit™ BASE for flexible support, a protective rubber toe cap, and metal eyelets and webbing loops for secure lacing.
Another standout highlight of the Zion is that it is stylish! This is the perfect boot for hiking and adventure travel and I would totally wear these around town in addition to wearing them on the trail. The Mid waterproof boot comes in three different colors for women and it also comes in a low sneaker style as well.
