Merrell Agility Peak 4 Trail Shoe

Published on

We recently had a look at the Merrell Rubato which you can read here. The Agility Peak 4 is a slightly less cushioned relation and feels more supportive with some well thought out features. We take a deeper look at the new Merrell trail shoe.


What is it?

A neutral trail running shoe with a 6mm drop and a grippy Vibram outsole.

  • Jacquard upper Integrated lacing system for a glove-like fit
  • Padded collar Gaiter D-Ring Protective toe cap
  • Breathable mesh lining Removable EVA insole
  • Rock plate for protection FLEXconnect® dual-directional flex-grooves in the midsole for enhanced ground connection
  • FloatPro Foam™ midsole for a lightweight ride that lasts
  • Vibram® MegaGrip® for the best combination of traction and durability on wet or dry surfaces

Who is this trail shoe for?

Trail runners who are looking for a neutral, stable platform with an aggressive outsole.

How well is it made?

The Vibram rubber provides ample grip on mixed surfaces and it sheds mud quickly with a central channel running under the heel and through to the front of the shoe which reduces build up.

The extra wide lacing system holds the foot snuggly whilst spreading the pressure well over the metatarsal area.

While the Rubato was super cushioned, the Agility Peak 4 is only highly cushioned! More than enough for a comfortable connection with terraferma whilst still giving you a feel for the ground.

The extra wide heel loop makes slipping on the shoes a breeze even with gloves on.

The Agility Peak 4 looks spot on! Agressively styled with bold stand out colours.

Is it worth your money?

Priced at £120 it is a few pounds more than some of its competitors but it’s a solid, well built shoe which is definitely with trying out.
