. Our mission is to inspire people to "Achieve. Never Settle. Hit the Trail. OUT. PERFORM." Merrell is for seekers of outside challenges, personal firsts and those who seize the outside today–not this weekend. Built on a history and future of employees comprised of outdoor enthusiasts, gear testers and people inspired to achieve outside, Merrell shoes and clothes are high quality and built to be used on the trail–out-of-the-box or off-of-the-hanger.
