What started in 1981 in the North American town of Rockford in Michigan with the manufacturing of walking shoes, became an institution in the field of footwear in the coming decades.

Whether for climbing, walking or a demanding run - the brand's passion for outdoor sports is evident throughout their range. Merrell constantly have an eye on the demand for high-quality products.

Runner or walker, you're only as good as your footwear will allow you to be. Merrell know this all too well. The brand's ambition is above all to make your outdoor activity as pleasant as possible. Merrell do this by using the latest technological achievements. Thanks to the incorporation of the Arctic Grip running sole, not only a safe footing is guaranteed. With this feature, Merrell winter and hiking footwear ensures total slip-resistance on adverse terrain such as ice or snow. In contrast, the manufacturer's running shoes will pleasingly keep your feet close to the ground. On your next long trail you will almost have the feeling that you're running barefoot. However, you can be totally confident that your feet are protected at all times. Depending on your requirements, with Merrell trail running shoes you can choose the height of your heels - the so-called drop.
In terms of materials, Merrell prioritise quality, adjusting the materials to the requirements of the terrain. In particular, walking on rough ground requires your shoes to provide utmost stability. For this reason, Merrell use robust leather or suede for their outdoor hiking and trekking shoes in combination with breathable, waterproof fabrics. Non-slip rubber soles guarantee a sure footing and protection for your feet. In the same way as sturdiness is essential for use in natural landscapes, endurance tours require a certain lightness. Merrell running shoes are highly appealing thanks to their breathable textiles like mesh and TPU. They help to keep the weight of the shoe down and still guarantee great durability.
