Trail runners will be able to carve easily through wet and muddy tracks and even more challenging terrain in the new Merrell Allout Rush trail running shoe.
The shoe is designed to encourage a more natural stride combined with exclusive new traction technologies to deliver superior responsiveness and protection.
High tech ‘foot wrap’
Developed in conjunction with the Rebound Physical Therapy Lab led by Jay Dicharry, the technology promotes natural running form and reduces stress on the body while increasing power and effectiveness through a contoured UniFlyTM foot wrap that is in continuous contact with the three main arches of the feet.
Continuous contact with the arch acts to relax the foot, conserving energy and allows for a larger and more efficient contraction and recoil on each and every stride – resulting in increased mobility.
UniFlyTM technology then extends into the sole system with two impact protection zones of ultra-resilient, strategically placed foam ‘shock’ pods ensuring a stable take offand soft landing, distributing impact and providing great feedback from the ground.
Grip and control over all terrains in all weathers is then provided by a unique outsole that incorporates a circular rubber lug design that allows each lug to move independently, providing multi-directional contact and increased surface area for a highly agile, slip-free ride.
A combination of work in-lab and with athletes in the field has allowed Allout Rush to match as closely as possible the natural shape and movement of the foot. They are available in a range of colours including black and lantern for men and black and paradise pink for women. Stockist: Cotswold/ Blacks / www.merrell.com
