Whether it's roaming around town and taking care of errands or kicking around the house, the Merrell Encore Ice Shoes will give your feet so much comfort that you'll begin to wonder what you ever did without them. An upgrade from Merrell's previous Chill brand, these shoes are now designed with classy collar accents added to the sheepskin lined upper. Combined with the Wool Fleece Footbed, these shoes keep the foot warm, lets air move throughout the shoe and provide moisture control underfoot. That means you're feet are comfy and dry all day long. A very lightweight cement construction will help hold the shoe up for all the miles you rack up. Keeping your foot flexing more naturally on each step is the Molded Nylon Arch Shank and the QForm Comfort EVA Midsole provides women's specific stride-sequenced cushioning. The Merrell Air Cushion in the heel absorbs shock and adds stability. The Merrell Encore 2 Sole/Sticky Rubber will maintain traction when walking on wet grass or in slick conditions. The perfect shoe for cold weather comfort, the Merrell Encore Ice Shoes are the ultimate in keeping those toes toasty. Like many others consumers, you can just use them as an incredibly comfortable slipper too!
