This autumn winter season we have an exciting new brand joining the Simply Hike line-up; Merrell. A global leader in rugged footwear, Merrell are renowned for their high quality boots and shoes designed for all your outdoor adventures.
Founded in 1981 in Vermont, United States by Randy Merrell and Clark Matis, the brand originally began by creating custom handmade boots for a small group of outdoor enthusiasts. Since then the company have maintained a 'no compromise' approach to their footwear ensuring their design, manufacture and composition will stand the test of time, are comfortable, look great, and are ideal for walking, running, hiking and climbing mountains, or just sitting around! In the words of Merrell;
"Our gear provides high-performance and top-tier technology to help you reach new heights and new personal bests. But it’s also to enable fun. We try to bring a sense of pleasure and play to active outdoor adventures whenever possible. Because the whole point in life is to enjoy it. Do what you love, and do it often with your Merrell gear. It’s made to last."
This season we are pleased to include the new MQM Flex Gore-Tex ‘Hybrid’ Trail Shoe in the first collection available to shop at Simply Hike. These styles are a hybrid between an ultra trail-running shoe and a hardcore hiking boot and are one of the fastest lightest hiking shoes on the market. These shoes are strong enough to help you scale a mountain and stable enough to protect your feet and ankles on the way back down. The lightweight structure won't weigh you down so you can speed through your adventure as fast or as slow as you like with no added weight holding you back. Gore-Tex Invisible Fit technology ensures your feet will stay nice and dry no matter the rain or mud you might find yourself making your way through out on the trail, and the EVA foam midsole with added grooves keep that traction secure underfoot.
Alongside the new MQM Flex Gore-Tex pieces we also have a number of other styles for men and women, whether it be a trail shoe or a boot you're looking for. The whole range for AW18 is now available to shop at Simply Hike.
