Summary

These shoes are COMFORTABLE, WARM, and DRY! For those of us who hate treadmills and are called to run outside even when snow and slush are an issue, these shoes are outstanding! Low drop, but with enough cushion for pavement, I would definitely recommend them.

Pros

  • Comfortable
  • Warm
  • Dry

Cons

  • None

Love them for winter running. Ordered them online, and received them Saturday. Wore them all day Sunday. Ran 15 miles in snow, slush, and wet pavement on Monday. Never lost traction. Feet were, COMFORTABLE, WARM, and DRY!

Put in another 5 on dry pavement Wednesday. Am VERY pleased! Low drop (4mm) but still enough cushion for the pavement. Fit was true to size, with roomy toe box. Conventional lacing system with not a lot of extra length. Laces did not come untied or loosened even during a 15 mile run.

Construction is what you would expect from Merrell (excellent), and too early to tell about durability, but I'm confident. Have had them less than a week but, I will definitely order a second pair. These are my new winter Go-to's.

Retailers' Descriptions

Here's what other sites are saying:

The waterproof, minimalist-inspired Merrell Mix Master 2 Cross-Training Shoes transition easily between adventures, from muddy trails to stream crossings to rain-drenched runs. 4mm heel-to-toe drop encourages a natural midfoot or forefoot strike to promote forward momentum and reduce the impact of heel striking. Sturdy uppers are made of light and flexible nylon mesh with synthetic leather reinforcements; toe bumpers boost durability and protection for vigorous outdoor activities. Lacing system is anchored by thermoplastic urethane overlays to ensure a snug, customized fit. Bellowed tongues keep debris out; 360deg reflectivity enhances visiblity in low light. Waterproof, breathable membranes help keep feet dry and comfortable. Polyester mesh linings wick away excess moisture and dry quickly for comfort; AEGIS Microbe Shield(R) antimicrobial treatment helps keep odors at bay. Low-profile Merrell Float(TM) EVA midsoles are thinner than previous Merrell midsoles for enhanced feel and responsiveness; Air Cushion heel pockets help absorb shock. ESS forefoot plates offer torsional stability and protection underfoot, increasing surefootedness on varied terrain and reducing rock bruising. Sticky rubber outsoles feature 3.5mm lugs for good all-around versatility and dependable traction. All-synthetic construction makes the Merrell Mix Master 2 Waterproof Cross-Training Shoes vegan-friendly. Closeout.
