The duo — who teamed up earlier this year for a MOAB 2 and towards the end of 2021 for a cozy take on the Hut Moc — have reworked the Long Sky this time around, a silhouette developed in the Merrell Test Lab by famed ultrarunner Anna Frost, winner of the Hardrock 100 and Transvulcania.
That being the case, durability in the Adsum Merrell Long Sky is paramount. Equipped with a grippy 5MM Vibram MegaGrip outsole, the sneaker houses a tear resistant knit upper beneath a series of TPU overlays, which is both breathable and quick-drying, too.
The large reflective transfer curls from the midfoot to the toe box found on the original Merrell Long Sky has been replaced with a reflective Adsum logotype, rounding out a subtle yet highly-technical collaboration.
The Adsum x Merrell 1TRL MTL Long Sky is set to drop via the Adsum webstore on May 3, 11am (EST).
