This boot is a new addition to Merrell’s popular Capra range. As the Bolt name alludes this model crosses the boundaries between hiking and trail running.
This is thanks to the rather nifty looking sole which was modelled on a goats hoof – meaning it gives us feeble two legged humans excellent stability and grip.
Earlier Capra models featured a Vibram sole, the Bolt however features a UniFly midsole to give you good bump absorption and to aid cushioning and comfort. The grip is given by Merrell’s own M Select Grip and on our first peek the sole lugs looks like they’ll do the job.
The Bolt will be available in Spring 2016 and RRP prices are: £140 for the boot & £110 for the shoe. Pictured above is the women’s boot.
