Merrell Shoes: Men's Proterra Sport J06531 Slip Resistant Athletic Shoes
There’s a thin line between minimalism and design that’s lacking. These Merrell Men's Proterra Sport J06531 Navy Athletic Shoes are firmly in the first camp. You’ll get the streamlined design you want from minimalist shoes without compromising performance or safety.
The uppers on these Merrell shoes are made from mesh and provide a flexible fit, as well as durability that allows your feet natural movement . Bellows tongues are stitched into these navy shoes so you can enjoy all that natural movement without worrying about the outside world getting in. They also have protective TPU rands and toe caps that help give your feet a more comfortable ride.
Despite their comfort, these slip-resistant shoes are minimalist in design. They feature a 21 mm stack height with only a 4 mm drop, so your heels are almost flat to the ground. Their 10 mm of cushioning, however, will make sure that concrete paths don’t rough up your feet. These Proterra Sport shoes also come with removable EVA footbeds, providing even more comfort for your feet.
Give your feet the arch support they deserve with these navy blue shoes. Their molded shank is made of TPU (thermoplastic polyurethane), a material that’s the perfect compromise between a firm plastic and a flexible rubber. TPU has a high degree of tensile and compressive strength. But while it’s tear- and abrasion-resistant, the material of these men's shoes remains bendable. It will also put up a fight against fungi and solvents.
Besides protection, you’ll also receive better performance from wearing these athletic shoes. Their 2.5 mm deep lugs will help you get better traction with each step. Merrell further enhanced these odor-preventing shoes by outfitting them with M-Select GRIP outsoles. You can take these Merrell shoes through all kinds of terrain without worrying that you’ll lose traction as the trek goes on. That’s because M-Select GRIP outsoles are designed to let go of dirt and debris, instead of letting them collect and interrupt your connection to the ground. So take on all kinds of terrain, wet or dry, with the confidence that comes from knowing you have slip-resistant, durable technology protecting each step.
The minimalist midsoles on these mesh shoes are made out of polyurethane. Simply put, there is no better material for midsoles in terms of density, stability, and durability. They were designed by Merrell to maximize contact with the ground and increase stability.
You’ll want to work up a sweat when you put these athletic shoes. Thanks to their M-Select FRESH technology, foot odor is stopped before it ever starts.
While minimalist footwear is a great option for people who want to enhance their cardio workouts, it doesn’t have to mean sacrificing what’s important. With Merrell’s Men's Proterra Sport J06531 Navy Athletic Shoes, you’ll get all the protection, traction, and comfort you need without all the add-ons you’d never want.
