First Look: Merrell – The Rubato

Here’s a very quick look at the Merrell Rubato trail shoe. We will be putting them through their paces very shortly to see how they perform.

Merrell say: The Rubato is a zero-drop max-cushion trail running shoe featuring light FloatPro™ foam that is claimed will provide lasting comfort for miles – even on the most rugged terrain. It’s a perfect option for runners looking to try trails and find quieter paths this month.
