Who should buy the Merrell Hut Moc

A slipper and shoe hybrid, the Merrell Hut Moc wears its laidback design and coziness up its pillowy sleeve. Your collection needs this, especially if:

  • Your manly OOTD consists of chinos and a short-sleeved shirt.
  • You want to be ravishing in a puffer coat over a pair of tapered pants (women's variant).
  • Merrell kicks that provide extra heel security are what you need.
  • You need something light and low-profile.

Who should not buy it

If you're unsure about the Hut Moc's traction, try the Merrell Gridway, which has no reported outsole issues. Also, you're better off with the Adidas Yeezy 350 Boost v2 if cloud-like plushness underfoot is a big yes for you.

How it all began for the Merrell Hut Moc

Founded by Randy Merrell, John Schweizer, Clark Matis in 1981, Merrell has always been widely known for putting out high-quality hiking shoes. Fast forward to 1997, the company in question was acquired by Wolverine World Wide.

From there, Merrell started to produce kicks outside hiking footwear. Among those that they made initially was the Hut Moc.

Today, the featured shoe is as popular as ever, thanks to its slip-on construction (a.k.a. collapsible heel). Its reeling appeal can also be linked to its unapologetically comfy confines and lounge-around-the-cabin aesthetics.
