Our Brands > Merrell

At Merrell, one motto shapes the design of every product: Let’s get outside!

With the firm belief that life is better in the great outdoors, every pair of Merrell gear has been carefully designed and constructed with comfort, protection and stability in mind.

Created in 1981 by Randy Merrell, the first hiking boot was labelled “the most comfortable and functional boots in North America” by Backpacker Magazine. The brand soon spread its wings as its popularity grew, and is now a leader in performance footwear and apparel.

Merrell strives to make shoes that allow people to view the world as their oyster. Their products are at the forefront of performance, delivering tough, rugged outdoor gear that comfortably goes the distance.

Whether it’s hiking boots, casual lace-ups or summer sandals, every Merrell product offers an easygoing attitude and supportive feel.

Made as tough as those who wear them, Merrell is for life both on and off the trail.

Since January 2010, Accent Group has held the Australian rights to distribute Merrell footwear and apparel. In addition to distributing the Merrell brand through premium outdoor performance and footwear retailers, Accent Group operates 21 mono-branded retail stores across Australia.
