For some, the outdoors is more than just the place we’d rather be: it’s a way of life. It’s in the friends we keep and the clothes we wear. And Merrell is a company that understands that. From the weekend hiker, to the backcountry adventurer, they know that nature enthusiasts come in all types.
Founded in 1981 by a bootmaker in Colorado, Merrell is rooted in the outdoors and committed to quality. They are a company that understands the importance of melding form and function into a product that is just at home on the streets as it would be in the mountains.
This is why Merrell offers a wide variety clothing and footwear options. Whether you are grabbing dinner with some friends, training at the gym for your next adventure, or tackling a new technical trail, they have the variety and the quality you need. With a selection ranging from casual streetwear, to trail-specific footwear, you are sure to find the right product.
Over the years, the concept of what is “outdoors” has evolved to include both scenic and urban environments. And as such, the needs of those looking to get outside and have some fun have changed. Merrell has met this ever-changing world by creating products and technologies that meet your demands. Things like air cushion midsoles, Q-Form® footbed, supportive Trailspring® technology, Omni-Fit™ lacing system and innovative sole designs: These are all things that make Merrell the go-to brand for all of your outdoor adventures.
Unlike many Merrells this one run does not run slightly short. Fits 8B perfectly. I did not find the heel too wide although I have narrow heels. Very comfortable, nice amount of support for an everyday street shoe, not bulky, not too sporty. The outsole has some give under the heel so the insole doesn't have to do all the work by itself. The Taupe is a creamy off white shade that gives it that summer oxford look that is fashionable now. I will probably buy the black also.
Very good light and your foot doesn't get hot. You can wear them all day with great comfort. The sole has excellent grip as well. Love the shoe bought them in grey too.
Love these! They're super cute. I get lots of compliments. While they are 'barefoot' shoes, the way the bottom is molded does give your foot a hugged feel. I am usually a 6 3/4s so I buy a 7 but these run a tad big. I wish I had gotten a 6 1/2 but I like them too much to send them back.
This shoe, which was chosen for heavy duty walking is more than I expected. I have been disappointed by the construction of other brands. I have used these for about two weeks and think they will serve me well. I am very please with the price and the quality.
Great shoe, my second pair of Merrells hiking shoe. First pair was smaller in length and wider in width than I expected - wound up with some sore big toes. This time I order a 1/2 size larger & 1/2 size smaller width & they fit great.
