Merrell Burnt Rock History

The Merrell Burnt Rock came from a rich archive of premium quality outdoor footwear. This highly preferred label among outdoor adventure enthusiasts and avid hikers around the globe houses a huge collection of reliable footwear and apparel. 

Merrell eventually went to create light trail shoes fit for the urban setting. It re-engineered its sole to fit the needs of various outdoor activities and create innovations designed to provide comfort to the feet such as its air cushioning in the heel area and patented grip technology for the outsole.

The cleat had a distinguishable air cushioning unit called QForm that were made to provide supreme comfort. All these were incorporated into one of the most likeable lightweight sneakers, a hybrid between outdoor and urban footwear called the Merrell Burnt Rock.
