Origin and history of Merrell, the American hiking footwear brand:
Merrell was created in 1981 when two passionate executives from Rossignol got into business with shoe manufacturer Randal Ivan Merrell to design affordable hiking footwear that offers performance. The Merrel brand was born and its first model, the Moab was an immediate success as soon as it hit the market in 1982. Ever since, Merrell simply became the leading American brand for hiking shoes and boots and adds models to its catalogue every year. At Glishop, you will find iconic models such as the Moab 3 GTX shoe or the Alverstone for men and women.
