The Merrell shoe company was established in 1981 by Clark Matis, John Schweizer, and well-known cleat maker, Randy J. Merrell. The company intended to introduce more affordable high-performance cleats to the market. Their first shoe release was geared specifically towards the hiking community and was well-received.
In 1986, Randy Merrell left the company to focus on making customized shoes once more, however, the company kept the name which has become synonymous with quality footwear.
In the late 90s, the Merrell company decided to venture into making lighter shoes. They released the Jungle Runner which had a lukewarm reception by the public. However, their follow-up to this, the Jungle Moc became a huge success and continues to be sold to this day. The company later expanded their lifestyle shoe line and added apparel and accessories as well.
