The Merrell Nova GTX Trail Running Shoe is designed to keep your feet comfortable and protected when you're out on moderate trails in wet, muddy conditions. Its abrasion-resistant upper holds up to the rigors of trail running and is reinforced with a Gore-Tex InvisibleFit membrane to protect your feet from the elements. This InvisibleFit technology delivers the same feel of an unprotected shoe but ensures that your feet stay dry on muddy trails and shallow stream crossings. The Nova also features shock-absorbing foam cushioning for comfort through the miles while its TrailProtect pad guards your feet against trail debris to keep you going. Finally, the Vibram TC5+ soles deliver highly durable traction across slick surfaces so you can confidently charge through the miles.
