Beneath the quality 3-mm. Perwanger Nepal leather upper is a breathable and wicking Microguard mesh liner with Outlast for superior moisture dispersal. Merrell's Easy Rollers II stainless steel ball bearing lacing system locks in a secure fit the way you like and a durable and aggressive Vibram Expedition sole with deep 8-mm. lugs inspires confidence in high spaces where you need it most.

Merrell made the Men's Expedition Mountaineering Boots with a close-fitting waterproof leather upper, so you get weather-blocking performance without a lot of bulk. These stiff boots' Vibram Expedition sole has deep lugs for grippy traction on snow, and high-traction rubber at the toe adds leverage on dicey terrain. A mesh and Outlast layer manages moisture as you heat up on the route, and the Expedition Mountaineering Boots' stainless steel double-hook lacing system provides a tight, secure fit. The shock-absorbing footbed on these crampon-compatible Expedition Boots helps reduce fatigue on hardcore climbs.
Merrell®'s flagship mountain-mastering boots take high-performance and comfort to the limit. Ideal for technically demanding ascents. Rugged, waterproof 3mm Perwanger split-grain leather uppers in a one-piece construction for lasting protection and performance. Double tongue design with high scree coverage allows optimal fit across a variety of instep volumes; thick padding relieves lace pressure. Easy Rollers II stainless steel ball bearing lacing system allows maximum pulling power and reduces lace abrasion and wear. In-Line stainless steel double hooks secure lacing along upper cuffs for superb support. Injection-molded thermoplastic urethane stabilizer at heels and full rubber randing offer extra support and protection from bumps and abrasion. Micro Guard nylon lining is backed with Outlast™ for moisture-wicking temperature regulation, releasing stored heat as interior temperatures cool. Removable, dual-density EVA footbeds with wicking topsheets add cushioning and support. Rigid yet lightweight Grade 10 carbon fiber midsole supports with 4mm Poron® performance material for flexion.
