Who We Are

Merrell exists to share the simple power of being outside. We believe the trail is for everyone. Our goal is to provide thoughtfully designed, rigorously tested products that over-deliver on performance, versatility, and durability.

Our History

OUTDOOR HERITAGE, QUALITY & PERFORMANCE

Merrell was established in 1981 when two executives for the Rossignol ski company, Clark Matis and John Schweizer, decided to launch a new maker of hiking boots. Since 1997, the company has been a wholly-owned subsidiary of shoe industry giant Wolverine World Wide. Today, as the global leader in outdoor active footwear with the Moab hiking boot and Jungle Moc, Merrell is focused on merging performance, styling, and comfort to empower all people to confidently explore the outdoors.

Our Purpose

At Merrell, we believe in sharing the simple power of being outside.
No matter who you are, where you came from, who you love or how you move — Everyone should be welcome in the outdoors and wherever life takes us. We strive to inspire everyone because, together, we can help protect the trail we love.
