Remember Merrell? That American outdoors brand is back to help you take on the rough terrain or an urban landscape in equal measure. Back in 1981 when Randy Merrell produced the first Merrell hiking boot, he modelled it on believe it or not, the leather Cowboy boot. Fast forward to today, and not only are they producing excellent rural footwear but they’ve stepped onto the streets and pulled out some urban delights.

The brand is always looking to innovate by rethinking the way your footwear fits functions and interacts with your body. However, they’ve dipped right into the archives and pulled out two 80s classics. Welcome back the Merrell Eagle boot and the Solo trainer.

Solo Trainer

Don’t think that just because they’re a few decades old that they’ve skimped on the comfort of a new wave Merrell shoe – no no both have got that breathable mesh lining treated with M Select™ FRESH, made to reduce shoe odour (ideal for a day trekking the city streets). Not to mention they’ve also got the signature Merrell air cushion in the heel to absorb shock and adds that stability you’re looking for in a solid everyday shoe.

You know how you can often get a bit of slippery pavement sometimes and those plimsolls aren’t cutting it? Look no further than a pair of these with the M Select™ GRIP that tunes each outsole with durable traction that grips when and where you need it to.

Know what would really complete the urban outdoors-man look? Throw on a Herschel beanie (and look like the gent below), as well as a little Eastpack or Herschel backpack. Ideal.
