Our Brands > Merrell
Since 1981, Merrell has been a leading outdoor performance brand, giving you the confidence to head outdoors and go and seek and do, through durable, high quality footwear and apparel.
Carefully designed and constructed with comfort, protection and stability in mind, Merrell exists to give you all you really need to discover the simple, yet profound power of the outdoors.
Created in 1981 by Randy Merrell, the first hiking boot was labelled “the most comfortable and functional boots in North America” by Backpacker Magazine. But that was just the beginning. Today, we’re much more than just boots. We’re the gear that gets you out there – from city streets to mountain trails (and everywhere in between).
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 17 mono-branded retail stores across Australia.
