With nowhere to go in the past months, I’d almost forgotten about shoes.
Until recently, I’d steadfastly ridden the slob-chic aesthetic trend: bare feet completing my pyjama shorts and business casual top combo. But now that vaccines are rolling in, I’ve become determined to finally get back into shape for adventures close at hand.
Evidently, trips nowadays are unpredictable; so, having a versatile pair of shoes is a must. Long known for both its outdoor and lifestyle performance, Merrell proves to be an empowering partner for today’s transitions.
This 2021, Merrell celebrates its 40th anniversary with its Nova 2 Collection. Made up of light and athletic kicks that go from city streets to mountains, this shoe line is certainly set on leading travellers towards the future.
Meet Merrell’s Future 40 Nova 2 Collection
Whether you’re a newbie runner or a seasoned athlete, the Merrell Nova 2 Collection can definitely support your needs. Described as “a line of two lightweight models equipped with hiker-like durability,” Nova 2 supports all kinds of outdoor adventures.
Breathable and lightweight, the Nova 2 in Black and Brick is your best pick for outdoor running. Built with shock-absorbing foam cushioning and TrailProtect™ Rock plate, these models remain comfortable through fast sprints and long runs — even over unpaved trails. Their minimal low-cut design also makes them a multipurpose pair you can wear while casually trotting the streets.
Want a stable pair for conquering mountains all year round? The Nova 2 Mid Waterproof in Black and Brindle boasts a mid-cut structure, ankle cushioning, and Vibram® Megagrip outsole to support hikers through the most challenging terrains. True to its name, the line also sports a waterproof feature to provide protection across unpredictable weather conditions.
Travel and seek adventures with Merrell
Representing Merrell’s Nova 2 Collection, travel personality Angel Juarez considers his Nova 2 Mid Waterproof as his “perfect companion for multi-day adventures across isolated locations.” The seasoned hiker, who has conquered numerous heights — including the Everest Base Camp, affirms that this collection is indeed a traveller’s best friend.
As Merrell celebrates its 40th anniversary as a forefront in outdoor and lifestyle performance, the brand envisions stronger years ahead. Promising to bring travellers to places where sneakers can’t, Merrell Future 40 is surely ready for the future — whatever this may hold.
