Shoe Of The Week: Merrell All-Out Flash

The Merrell All-Out Flash has some of the best design elements of minimalism while also offering a softly cushioned ride.

Merrell’s All-Out Flash has some of the best design elements of minimalism while also offering a softly cushioned ride.

A modern minimalist shoe, the All-Out Flash combines soft midsole foam with some “barely there” design elements for a cushioned, lightweight and efficient ride. This flyweight slipper-like shoe fits snug in the heel and midfoot but decidedly wide in the forefoot. The cushy, built-up heel and midfoot is a bit of a departure for Merrell running shoes; the All-Out Flash is ideally suited for a runner who appreciates rear-foot cushioning and impact protection but still wants the low-to-the-ground agile feeling in the forefoot. The seamless upper, which is reinforced by rubbery overlay bands, stretches and moves with the foot, adding to the uninhibited and very nimble ride.

Price: $110
Weights: 6.5 oz. (men’s), 5.6 oz. (women’s)
Heel-Toe Offset: 8mm; 17mm (heel), 9mm (forefoot)
