The best boots ever made. That’s what Randy Merrell’s customers were saying in 1981. Backpacker Magazine named them “the most comfortable and functional boots in North America.”
Word spread. Like all legends, ours grew. Today, we're much more than boots. We're the gear that gets you out there—from city streets to mountain trails and everywhere in between.
Eagle boots combined running shoe performance with backcountry utility to create lighter and faster footwear for the trail. It was the first of its kind for Merrell, and the beginning of our history for creating groundbreaking multi-sport technologies.
We celebrated our 30th year with the launch of Merrell Origins. The collection brings back top styles from 1981, like our Wilderness, Eagle and Solo footwear—all updated with modern technologies for even better comfort and performance.
Also in 2011, our partnership with Vibram® continued with the launch of Barefoot—a collection of low-profile, 0mm heel drop shoes for all your outside adventures. Coming soon, an expanded lineup of Barefoot shoes. Check back in early 2012.
