“The best hiking boots ever made” – that's what Randy Merrell's American customers were saying in 1981. The U.S. publication ‘Backpacker Magazine’ named Merrell boots "the most comfortable and functional boots in North America."
That's just the beginning of our history. Word spread, and - like all legends - ours grew. Today, we're much more than just boots. We're the gear that gets you out there – from city streets to mountain trails (and everywhere in between).
