Founded in 1981 for the express purpose of crafting high-performance hiking boots and shoes, Merrell has since expanded its offerings to include footwear designed for trail running, work, and training. The company is steeped in technological and design innovation, intent on delivering the best in lightweight, cushioned, ventilated, and, where appropriate, waterproofed and insulated footwear with unequaled traction. The brand’s commitment to designing the most comfortable shoes and boots, designed for their purpose, is likewise unparalleled. Every pair of shoes and boots they make undergoes painstaking testing, both in the lab and the field -- in the same conditions they were created to withstand. The brand’s signature shoe and a smashing success, the Jungle Moc, blends an aggressive outsole originally made for trail runners with a casual leather slip-on upper. The brand has since still further expanded its line to include apparel and accessories. We at Outdoor Equipped are very pleased to offer a wide selection of Merrell products.
