Over three decades ago, Randy Merrell began designing and manufacturing handmade custom boots for a small group of outdoor enthusiasts. Even back then they were calling them, "The best hiking boots ever made" Backpacker Magazine named Merrell boots, "the most comfortable and functional boots in North America."
Since then Merrell has come a long way – a journey that has helped shape its products, its people, and its purpose to become one of the world's top manufacturers of outdoor equipment. From Merrell's very first custom made hiking boots to its latest product innovations, Merrell makes all of its products with four core values in mind: Comfort, Durability, Design, and Versatility. It's all about removing the barriers to enjoying the great outdoors.
