Keep reading because I’ll tell you about Merrell’s history, tell you how to save some money on their products and even give you a chance to win the product of your choice in our Merrell Giveaway.
In 1981, Randy Merrell establish the company to make what his early customers called the most comfortable boots ever. In that same year, Backpacker Magazine named his boots “the most comfortable and functional boots in North America”. Over the years many other awards have followed for Merrell’s comfortable and functional hiking boots, trail runners and minimalist running shoes.
Merrell is still primarily known for their excellent footwear but they introduced an outdoor adventure clothing line in 2006. You’ll find light-weight, packable and quick drying shorts, pants and shirts. Merrell’s clothing goes from active workout wear to comfortable travel clothing.
