Dedicated hikers deserve footwear dedicated to their hobby. Nasty weather, rugged terrain, and long distances are standard when it comes to serious trekking. With Merrell 86232 Women's Outventure Chameleon Wrap Gore-Tex XCR Hiking Shoes you can be sure that your feet will have the protection and support they need to last as long as you do.
These Hiking Shoes feature waterproof pigskin leather uppers enhanced by breathable defense mesh panels to give you protection from water and elements and a ventilated, easy fit. A padded tongue softens the feel around your ankle and a toe bumper and contoured rand add abrasion-resistance and durability for long-wearing performance that lets you go off-trail with confidence. Vibram Chameleon Sport outsoles offer claw-like gripping for sure-footed, oil- and slip-resistant traction on a variety of terrains. An injection-molded nylon shank gives you lightweight arch support that lessens fatigue when the miles start to add up.
Now, let's get to the guts of this pair. Inside you'll find a Gore-Tex bootie the best waterproof protection you can ask for. Gore-Tex works just like your skin perspiration and moisture can escape, but water can't enter. The billions of tiny holes that comprise this fabric block the larger water molecules from entering to give you a secure, waterproof fit for dry, comfortable wear, no matter where your trek takes you. The XCR in this pair stands for Extended Comfort Range. This innovative system, in combination with Gore-Tex, works to suppress humidity in order to deliver optimum climate comfort and maximum performance during strenuous activities.
Action comfort comes easy as well. The technologically-advanced Merrell Air Cushion midsole absorbs shock and increases stability by compressing when the heel strikes the ground and keeping it centered in the shoe for running-shoe comfort with backcountry control. To make things even easier on your feet, ladies, Merrell tailors this pair specifically for women. Their Q-Form technology combines properly sequenced cushioning with a supportive and naturally aligning midsole to compensate for the stresses placed on the feet from the specific makeup of a woman's body. This alleviates discomfort and reduces the wear and tear on your shoes for a long-wearing, personalized fit designed to let you step easy even when the going gets rough.
Specially designed for your specific on-the-trail needs, Merrell 86232 Women's Outventure Chameleon Wrap Gore-Tex XCR Hiking Shoes are dedicated to making your next trip, no matter how challenging, easy on your feet. Pick up your pair today for the comfort, control and performance you need to stay sure-footed on your next adventure.

I wanted these shoes in the worst way, but I usually buy a wide width. On the advise of the customer services person, I ordered a half size larger than what I usually wear. Well, she was right, the shoes fit wonderfully and are so comfortable. I am now ready for my woman's retreat in the Ozarks where there will be lots of fun and outdoor activities.
