Retailers' Descriptions

Here's what other sites are saying:

Rugged, "durable", and "supportive" when applied to footwear often translates to "clunky" and "uncomfortable". With the Merrell Col you can get all of the former and none of the latter. Full grain leather uppers and a nylon arch shank combine with Merrell's famous good fit to make the Col a tough and nimble lowcut hiker. Supportive enough for carrying a backpack, with enough freedom of movement for fast day hikes. Closeout, limited to stock on hand. Merrel Col features: UPPER/LINING Full grain leather upper Bellows tongue keeps debris out Abrasion resistant rubber toe bumper Mesh Lining Treated with Aegis antimicrobial solution Ortholite Anatomical Footbed MIDSOLE/OUTSOLE Molded nylon arch shank Merrell air cushion in the heel absorbs shock and adds stability with an EVA Midsole for cushioning Merrell TrailBound Technology midsole provides cushioned support that's durable over rough terrain 5 mm Sole lug depth Vibram Col Outsole with TC5 Sticky Rubber Compound Men's Weight: 2 lbs 5 ozs.
