An amphibious silhouette that you wouldn’t want to wear when walking through water.

After debuting its new range of Hydro Moc colorways for Fall, Merrell 1TRL is back with a new take on the divisive amphibious silhouette, introducing the Hydro Slide.

The Merrell 1TRL Hydro Moc is an interesting silhouette because it’s designed to be used as a hiking shoe that can be worn through water despite the holes that make up the upper construction. Now, as a slide, this is even more confused, as the toe is completely exposed, the throat and mid-panel section feature a littering of holes, and of course, there is no back to this pair.

Formed from single-density injected EVA foam, the slide is shaped to fit the natural arch of one’s foot, providing comfort and support where you need it. Two millimeters of lug depth on the contoured outsole provides traction on loose or wet ground, but subsequently gives the Hydro Slide its signature design that sees pod-like shapes decorate the lower half of the silhouette.

Merrell 1TRL has finished the slide in a white and yellow mottled effect and has stamped its moniker into the lateral side for a final finishing touch.

As expected, these slides are incredibly affordable at just £45 GBP (approx. $62 USD). Take a closer look at the Merrel 1TRL Hydro Slide above, and pick up a pair now from stockists such as Hanon.
