Merrell is a top provider of high quality performance and casual footwear. The company started in 1981 with a hiking boot which was then called "the most comfortable and functional boots in North America" by Backpacker Magazine. That's just the beginning of Merrell's history. Word spread, and like all legends, theirs grew. Today, Merrell is much more than boots. Its the gear that gets you out there—from city streets to mountain trails and everywhere in between.
