Merrell and Vibram: Artic Grip for Winter Conditions

A new type of technology has been burning up the scene in the footwear industry – regarding cold weather functionality. The ArticGrip technology from Vibram is engineered to give you a more stable grip and traction in one of the worst conditions you encounter while walking; wet ice. Several of Merrell’s new fall/winter footwear lineup has this Vibram sole integrated in and ensures an upgrade while walking, compared to your regular winter-boot.

How ArcticGrip Traction Technology Works:

Deep lugs are shaped from a rubber compound featuring an advanced filler system for maximum stability on all kinds of cold surfaces. Ever wonder whether it’s dropped below freezing while you’re out in the wilderness? Just check the tell-tale, color-changing thermochromatic lugs on the bottom of these waterproof snow boots – when they turn blue, the ground temperature has dropped below 32 degrees. From sopping-wet surfaces to slippery inclines and frosted, rocky terrain, the waterproof snow boots with ArcticGrip outsoles from Merrell are field-tested to make ice obsolete – whatever adventure awaits.
