The Merrell Capra Bolt Mid Waterproof hiking boot offers a lightweight boot with heavy-duty support. The lugs measure at 4mm and offer great grip in rock-filled terrain while protecting your foot-bed from direct impact. The bellowed tongue prevents dirt, water, and debris entering at every single encounter. The Tester experienced a comfortable fit along with predictable support and appreciated reliability. Capra Bold Mid offers a sporty design built for rugged performance. They can carry you from the summit to the city. Optimal lace length, fashion forward color schemes in both men and women’s as well as brand dependability. Tired of the same old brown hiking boot? Try these.
The Merrell Capra Bold Mid Waterproof hiking boot offer you supportive structure, fashion-forward color options and, while weighing 1lb. 8ozs., an incredibly lightweight footwear option. Extending a valued protection to the ankle safe-guarding against loose debris and physical injury. The Merrell Women’s Capra Bolt Mid WP boot worked well for a 3-day backpacking trip in a lightweight sock. These boots were tested during summer weather when a lightweight sock is preferred. The Tester experienced zero hot spots, foot pain or discomfort during use. Tester would suggest you purchase a ½ size larger than normal allowing the shoe to be worn with a heavier sock without compromising the fit of the toe box or disrupting foot ventilation. We did not experience the need for a break-in time as these boots felt good and fit well right out of the box.
