Merrell Ceylon Zip History
As a well-known maker of handcrafted cowboy boots, Randy Merrell thought of putting his expertise to great use by teaming up with Rossignol Ski Company executives John Schweizer and Clark Matis in 1981. The skill of the three fused into making the Merrell company, combining expertise in footwear craftsmanship and business savviness and connections.
In 1983, Merrell launched its first product. Along with it was the launch of the brand’s women’s hiking shoes with QForm comfort technology that is specialized for women’s bone structure, stride, and profile. From then on, Merrell continued to expand not just in footwear but also transcended to apparel and accessories.
Along with its release of the Merrell Ceylon Zip, the brand stayed consistent with its mission of permitting its audience to enjoy the outdoors to the fullest. With that, the values it upholds to-- comfort, durability, design, and versatility, all linked to its success.
