The story of Merrell shoes began in 1981 in the Utah Mountains, where Randy Merrell, a cowboy boot manufacturer, decided to diversify by adding hiking boots to his shoemaking activities. The same year, Clark Matis and John Schweizer, new arrivals from Rossignol, ski aficionados and passionate about outdoor pursuits, decided to involve Randy Merrell in their business venture — and the Merrell Boots Company was born. Over the years, the Merrell shoe brand diversified its product range. To complement the hiking boots, Merrell also launched shoes for trail running, water sports and other outdoor activities. Merrell broke down all the barriers and regarded the outdoors as it would a day full of discoveries and freedom. Living outdoors brings adventure and intense joy but also a better knowledge of oneself. Merrell is a leader in design, innovation and the production of products reflecting its modern vision of the world outdoors. Just as the needs of outdoor enthusiasts have changed, Merrell has adapted its approach. Its modern vision for the outdoor scene now encompasses all types of activities and environments.
