Merrell delved deeper into the trail running space
with the launch of five trail runners. 

“Our SS|2019 collection brings an important milestone in Merrell innovation, uniting years of experience designing for the trail, foot-in-motion science, elite athlete experiences, and additional findings from the Merrell Test Lab. This collection delivers a range of options for all trail runners, including those just starting to discover the power of the trail.” —  Shaun Bohnsack, Senior Product Director, Merrell. 


The MTL Cirrus is a racing shoe created by and for the elite athlete with a passion for Skyrunning. Ultra-lightweight, the TrailProtect rock plate stabilizes a trail athlete footfall during rugged ascents and descents.

Created by studying the foot in motion, the Trail Glove 5 trainer is designed to enhance the foot’s natural ability to stabilize the body during rapid changes in movement. The TrailGlove franchise is a favorite among the barefoot run community since it launched in 2011.

Designed for women, the Antora trail runner with Q Form 2 Stability technology and Vibram outsole performs on moderate terrain. It is narrower in the heel, higher in the arch, and roomier in the toebox.

A men’s specific trail runner, the Nova is built for running on moderate trails with shock-absorbing foam cushioning and a TrailProtect rock plate for comfort on long runs over debris and obstacles.

The Momentous, for men and women, is designed for runs on moderate trails and the right choice if you want to feel connected and have a fast experience with debris and obstacles in your way.
