Merrell AllOut Fuse Review Facts

Only a few things are as pleasant as exercising yourself in a secure and healthy fashion. During exercise your body produces endorphins that make the body feel free and happy. There is no better activity than that which improves health, enlivens and allows the body to become stronger and tougher. To achieve goals and achieve happiness you need three things, a strong will, clear goals, and shoes that are able to withstand the pace that is imposed. That is why there is no doubt that the obvious and most successful choice is the Merrell shoes. Their incredible design and the technology put into manufacture have made them the ideal companions of success.

Outsole
Outsole

Outsole

As we have already mentioned previously, the Merrell line uses a special treatment called Vibram for shoes. This treatment is named after the renowned hiker with the same name. This treatment endows any shoe with excellent resistance; however, it also makes them slippery on wet surfaces, since the friction with the sole is not the most optimal.

For this reason, a different technology has been used for the All Out Fuse, which allows the Vibram to have its enormous resistance but adds superior adhesion without increasing the weight. This design is truly revolutionary and it demonstrates the human capacity for originality. This new concept involves microscopic round studs that make the sole gain incredible grip.
Midsole

Midsole

The technology and design meant for everyday labor has also been applied in Merrell All Out Fuse´s midsole. The style that is used is minimalistic and it matches perfectly with its basic composition. Firm shades and superb designs that are not overloaded with doohickeys, that is one good description regarding the style of these shoes, including the midsoles, intended for good tastes only.
Upper

Upper

The upper of the Merrell All Out Fuse´s have a variety of qualities that make it unique. The combination of leather and textile and the exceptional design make them very attractive. One of the things that is really important in a shoe, but that is often overlooked, is its color. This is a type of functional shoe for both mountainous terrain and asphalt. It is necessary that they have the characteristics of an urban sports shoe. The color in this model stands out, but it is sober, it does not hide. It doesn´t look off or dull; everyone notices that it is alive and that it demands respect.
Weight
Weight

Weight

Regarding weight we just can´t emphasize enough how intimately committed the Merrell brand is with minimalism, lightness, functionality and sobriety. A shoe too overloaded with elements becomes heavy and difficult to walk with, both in mountain and asphalt surfaces. All Out Fuse are pioneers in leaving out materials without losing functionality, which inevitably leads to an increase in the lightness of the shoe and a complete relief for anyone who intends to use it during their training. This is therefore one of the biggest advantages and a vital point that should always be considered with the Merrell brand.
Breathability
Breathability

Breathability

The feet require oxygen in order to keep the balance of the body regulated. The ability to allow the foot to transpire is essential for a shoe. This will always be needed in high temperatures, because of the weather or simply because the body generates heat with movement. The use of light materials in fabrics such as nylon makes these shoes breathe properly. Footwear that does not allow this, such as rubber boots, often generate inconveniences such as a disturbance in milder cases and even infections if you work with them for too long.
Comfort
Comfort

Comfort

Regarding comfort it is necessary to mention that the overall feeling is excellent, the All Out Fuse´s have made a commitment to a design in which the user is in contact with the ground and is able to feel the ground, so to speak. There is an internal padding that offers comfort but the shoe also allows that contact that was mentioned, which means there is a double gain. The experienced runner understands that training on steep terrains is a matter of sensitive acuity. If you know and feel the ground beneath your feet you may be in greater awareness of the area and know what hazards there are and what risks can be taken.
Style

Style

The style is one of the biggest advantages that the Merrell brand has. The minimalist concept applied to these shoes shines at its best when they achieve functionality. This is the case of the All Out Fuse, there is sobriety and elegance and effectiveness. The fusion of color is just impressive and the details give the shoe great presence that cannot go unnoticed.
Durability
Durability

Durability

As we mentioned above, the Vibram method that is applied to most of the Merrell shoes has changed to welcome a new milestone in footwear history. The treatment consisted, in general terms, of a mix with polymers and synthetic materials that served as a coating to the shoes. This new coating provides high protection and also prevents rapid decomposition. The materials used in the new mode of manufacture of the All Out Fuse do not adhere to the shoe, but are part of it. The latter makes it integral and therefore less synthetic, which is something that the environment will appreciate.
Protection
Protection

Protection

However, the advantage of not using polymers does not negatively affect the protection provided. Of course, a shoe designed for mountain or asphalt has an intelligent design intended to protect feet against any burden. The user does not have to worry about having part of his feet exposed or badly reinforced. The flexible band that is located in the fingers allows a greater subjection and reaffirms the footfall, so that it will not suffer from the typical pain after a walk, in the distal and medial phalanges of the foot.
Responsiveness

Responsiveness

Merrell has also managed to surpass itself by obtaining an astonishing flexibility in these shoes. It should be noted that very few shoes could be found out there with a level of sensitivity and recognition as high as the All Out Fuse. The not so thick insole, and the movable entwines with which this shoe has been made, allow an enormous flexibility.
Support

Support

Of course, it should be understood that the firmness of this footwear is slightly reduced due to the commitment to make them lighter and more flexible. The support on the fingers and the support under the ankle are very good, it is also true that these are shoes are designed to run and that flexibility is their advantage.
