Merrell All Out Blazer Chukka History
The Merrell shoe company was established in 1981 by Clark Matis, John Schweizer, and well-known boot maker, Randy J. Merrell. The company intended to introduce more affordable high-performance boots 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.
The Merrell All Out Blazer Chukka falls into the casual shoe category. It has all the performance qualities and technology from Merrell’s All Out Blaze collection but wrapped in laid-back leather instead. The shoe has a full-grain leather upper, nylon arch shank, mesh lining, and a traditional lace closure.
Merrell All Out Blazer Chukka Style
The chukka shoe can be versatile and is easily dressed up or down. Pair your All Out Blazer Chukka with rolled up chinos and a long-sleeved shirt for casual Fridays, selvedge denim for dates, and laidback cotton pants and T-shirt for lazy Sunday afternoons.
Fit & Sizing
This shoe is available in men’s sizes ranging from 7 to 15. Some half sizes are offered. Based on some reviews, the shoe is said to run a bit large so buyers might need to buy a half size lower than their standard foot size.
The All Out Blazer Chukka utilizes the Unifly midsole technology of the All Out Blaze Collection to give exceptional shock absorption. The midsole disperses the impact and provides a more stabilized takeoff. The M Select GRIP outsole gives the shoe superior traction while the M Select FRESH technology absorbs moisture to keep the feet drier and fresher longer.
- Weight is 11 oz.
- A breathable mesh lining adds a little more comfort in the interior.
