Believe it or not, Randy Merrell first dipped his proverbial toes in the ocean of footwear by customising a pair of cowboy boots for his outdoor-enthusiast mates.
After tinkering with his designs a bit (and a particularly auspicious run-in with an ex-olympian), Randy set out to make some of the most comfortable, durable and good-looking hiking shoes around.
Thus, Merrell as we know it today was born.
These ones here are from their 1TRL collection. Merging classic hiking shoe details with sleek, trainer-esque designs, these will look just as good when you’re milling about as they will when you’re hitting the trail.
