    Running Pastor

    In the middle of the cold North Atlantic, craggy
    mountaintops rise straight up out of the sea.
    And it’s here, in the rugged Faroe Islands, that
    local pastor Sverri Steinholm runs. For Sverri,
    running is spiritual.

    NATURAL FLEX.
    ENHANCED AGILITY.

    Merrell FLEXconnect™ technology supports the
    natural flexing of a foot in motion to enhance
    agility on any terrain. Anatomically-inspired,
    bidirectional flex grooves allow the foot to move
    naturally on uneven ground, providing improved
    ground connection and stability.
