When Bruso co-designed this updated version of Merrell’s sneaker-like Zion boot, she wanted to make sure it offered all the function of a traditional hiking boot along with style and fit for a variety of foot sizes and widths – something not often seen in this category.
The men’s version of the Zion Mid Waterproof X Unlikely Hikers is available in an extended width and offers sizes to 16 (15 in wide, 16 in medium). In her introduction to the shoe on her website, Bruso says the shoe has a naturally wider footbed and that the wide is the equivalent of a 2E.
You’ll also find a lot of the features that help make a good hiking boot great, such as a waterproof membrane to keep out water while letting moisture escape, a bellows tongue to keep out debris, extra insole and midsole support for comfort and stability, and more.
