Annex Trak Low Hiking Shoe
When the trail you're on ends up crossing by a little mountain town, you won't have to stomp your way through restaurants and shops in a clunky pair of hiking boots, at least not with the Merrell Annex Trak Low Hiking Shoe. Designed for adventures from trail to town, this low hiking shoe offers comfort, support, and tons of performance for your next adventure, wherever it is. You've got a Vibram rubber outsole to give you traction on everything from dry and dusty single track to slippery roots and rocks, as well as a leather and mesh upper for breathable comfort and durability. The EVA footbed and midsole offer support and cushioning for long days on your feet, whether they're in the mountains or closer to home. A protective rubber toe cap ensures that unexpected toe stubs don't end your hike early, and natural odor control in the footbed prevents funk from building up after a few strenuous hikes.

- Merrell Sizing Notes:
- Merrell boots are designed to fit like your street shoes.
When ordering Merrell boots, shoes, or sandals, you should reference your normal shoe size.
- What to Expect:
- A snug fit in the heel: In a stride, your foot bends at the ball, and the heel tries to pull away from the boot.
Because of Merrell's precise fit, the upper follows the heel. This prevents the slipping and sliding that eventually causes blisters.
Snug over the instep: Besides preventing the toes from sliding forward when you go down hill, a precise instep fit gives you internal control.
When you're standing on sloping rocks, the boot sole doesn't sideslip underneath you.
Toe Room: Merrell gives plenty of room to the toes. This room, combined with a sturdy toe box, protects the toes from getting bashed by rocks.
- Choosing Socks:
- For Hiking Boots choose heavyweight, thick, dense socks, with or without a liner sock.
For Multi-Sport choose light-or medium-weight dense socks.
- Before You Take Your Merrells to the Trail:
- 1) Try your new boots on over the correct sock combination without lacing.
Stand and push your toes forward so they touch the front of the boot.
You should be able to slip one finger into the space behind your heel.
If there isn't enough room, the boot is probably too small and you should try the next half-size larger.
For boots to be used while carrying a moderate-to-heavy pack, a full finger space is recommended.
- 2) Tap your heel back in the heel cup and lace the boot.
The boot should feel snug across the ball, around the instep, and in the heel.
The arch should be comfortably supported and the toes should be free to wiggle and curl.
- 3) To check the fit in the heel, walk up an incline. The heel should lift a maximum of 1/2 inch (1.75cm).
- 4) The toes should not jam into the front of the boot.
Checkthis by walking down an incline or tap your toe lightly into the floor or against the wall. If the boot fits correctly, the toes should gently touch the end of the boot.
