An Insight Into The Merrell 1TRL Collection at Urban Industry

Apr 20, 2023

Founded in 1987 by Clark Matis, Randy Merrell and John Schweizer, Merrell has made its mark on the outdoor world for developing high performing hiking boots. In 1997 Wolverine World Wide took over the company , adding athletic shoes, sandals, jackets, backpacks and many more items to their catalogue. 

Introducing new lighter weight lines to the trail running packs, and then later the 'Jungle Moc' shoes, which had a great success from 2009, the wide variety of styles covers every need. Sold in over 151 countries, we're very pleased to have the elevated and directional Merrell 1TRL capsule collection as part of our outdoor footwear offering.

More recently, in 2023 Merrell was rated top for barefoot running shoes and hiking boots for beginners, and that's exactly what our range at Urban Industry aims to provide. 

But it's not all about the performance of the shoes, Merrell strives for inclusivity, their ethos being 'Trail For Everyone', from a recent campaign in 2018. Creating products to allow everyone to explore the great outdoors is their key focus. At urban Industry we support this approach to fashion, and also share Merrell's value on developing sustainable products, the current Merrell President stated 'we exist to inspire everyone to explore the outdoors, we need a healthy home in order to do just that'.
