Merrell footwear can be purchased by men or women to be worn for outdoor activities. The Merrell Company was established two decades ago in Utah. As the needs of outdoor enthusiasts have changed over the past 20 years, so has the design of Merrell shoes. Merrell now makes shoes for a variety of outdoor activities and for many different types of terrain.

Merrell Footwear Features

Merrell footwear features an anaconda strapping system which makes it easy to tighten shoes and also provides a custom fit. This system wraps over, under, and around the foot like a web. Merrell uses leathers and mesh for shoe constructions. Leathers include full grain, pigskin, pittards, nubuck, split, and reverse full grain leather. Merrell uses an aerospace mesh that is made from polyester for their Primo Breeze mocs and slides.

When you purchase Merrell footwear, you should make sure to regularly care for your shoes. For leather boots or shoes, you can use a conditioner to protect the leather over extended periods of time. You can use a soft brush to whisk away surface dirt from any style of Merrell shoes. You may want to wash your shoes with a mild soap and warm water if they become soiled or dingy.

Merrell shoes can be purchased in all standard shoe sizes. Each Merrell shoe style is designed with a specific type of sock in mind. You may decide to use light or medium weight socks for multi-sport shoes and heavyweight, thick socks for hiking boots. Both types of shoes should be tried on with the socks you will be wearing with them. Merrell shoes feature a snug fit in the heel that prevents it from sliding and developing blisters.
