An extra light antibacterial sole; it is three times lighter than a traditional sole, making the shoe feel better on the foot. They are supremely light, flexible and just as hardwearing and shock absorbing as a heavier sole.
Clarks Unstructured shoes are designed for lightweight flexible comfort. They feature perforated chamois, or comparably soft leather linings, which work with the hidden vents to provide exceptional breathability. The soles are rubber inlays in an EVA midsole, which allows for exceptional flexibility whilst reducing weight and maximising durability.
Active Air with Air Flow offers not only the ultimate in underfoot cushioning, but you also have the added benefit of air flowing under and around the foot. This helps to keep feet cool and comfortable.
Wavewalk allows you to walk for longer with less effort thanks to a curve and pivot point in the sole which allows the foot to roll in a smooth transition; reducing the energy used in bending and flexing the foot. Wavewalk uses the body’s natural motion to help propel the wearer through each step. ‘Walk further. Feel fitter’.
The unique open-cell structure of an Ortholite® high-performance footbed delivers long-lasting cushioning plus breathability and moisture-wicking.

Designed to reduce the impact stress you experience when walking in Ecco shoes. Tiny air cushions absorb some of the vibrations that travel through the body, returning some energy to the wearer. The key thing about them is they reduce the fatigue, or that ‘tired feeling’, making Ecco shoes more comfortable to wear.
Made from an open-celled material; this allows air to circulate the feet, helping them stay fresh. It also has an anti-bacterial effect; by neutralising the bacteria occurring in moisture and sweat, it reduces possible odours. The shock-absorbing effect protects the lumbar region, coccyx and spine. The material is very soft and durable so it follows the contours of the foot when walking, and it doesn’t lose its shape or special effect as a result of use. They are even recyclable too!
A way of making selected ECCO leathers more water tight. During the tanning process hydrophobic compounds like silicone are impregnated into the leather’s structure, this means that it shouldn’t wear off. They are not guaranteed waterproof, Ecco recommend that they will keep water out for up to 8 hours.
This is a proprietary sole unit from Merrell; it is intended for increasing the versatility of performance footwear. To create this Merrell incorporate extra slip resistant materials with their own unique lug designs and depths to provide maximum traction on a multitude of surfaces, whether they are wet or dry.
A shock absorber that provides all day cushioning. Using an air pocket in the heel the Air Cushion absorbs the impact stress of up to 4x the bodies’ weight, whilst realigning the heel for a more neutral gait.
Specifically designed for women, Q-Form aims to improve alignment and comfort whilst reducing muscular/joint pain and helping to prevent foot roll and fallen arches. Generally women have shorter legs and broader hips, which lowers their centre of gravity and increases the angle of the legs by about 5°; to counter this Q-Form has zoned supports which work with these differences to improve motion efficiency. Women also tend to have longer toes and higher, more flexible arches; Q-Form accommodates this by moving flex points and changing the shape and position of the arch supports.
An antimicrobial treatment designed to combat the build-up of odour causing microbes and bacteria; through the use of friendly and reactive microbes that break down perspiration on contact, these microbes will last the lifetime of the product. Merrell incorporate this into a lot of footwear to help keep your feet and shoes feel fresher for longer; great for multi-day trips.
This is a waterproofing technology; an internal membrane prevents rain, snow and water in general from penetrating the shoe. To ensure no water ingress every seam is sealed with specially designed waterproof tape. The outer layer of Merrell M-Select Dry functions as a safeguard in rain and snow whilst blocking wind at the same time, making them very light and ideal for high intensity activities.
