Merrell 1Six8 Lace AC+ History

More than three decades ago, Randy Merrell an expert in producing well-made cleats rose to fame amongst outdoor fanatics because of his excellent handmade cleats. These cleats were specially made to endure nature's roughest terrains. As a result, Randy's dedication in creating high-quality cleats earned him the recognition for the "best hiking cleats" by the Backpacker Magazine.

Merrell, after a few years, decided to widen their expertise from hiking and custom-built cleats to introducing their first ever cross training pair in 1993. From then on the company has been manufacturing footwear that is more casual and lightweight than their previous products. Today, Merrell is directed towards releasing more lifestyle-based products without stirring away from their core values.

One of the brand's latest offering is the Merrell 1Six8 Lace AC+. This shoe is a women's exclusive release and could be found under the brand's 1Six8 collection. The 1Six8 collection houses the more casual footwear with mesh uppers and more lightweight construction.
