Kicking through crisp, brown leaves on a relaxed weekend date; striding to the tube station on a frosty workday morning; strolling to a hot new pop-up on a cold evening - your footwear always needs to be on point. Flip-flops and delicate bright-white trainers simply aren’t going to cut it at this time of year.
You want something durable, stylish and versatile that reflects your sense of adventure as much as your fashion sense. That's why this season is made for Merrell.
The brand best known for its market-leading hiking boots is equally at home at, well, wherever you are. The Merrell Heritage line – highlighted by the Eagle boot (opens in new tab) and Solo trainer (opens in new tab) on sale now at schuh.co.uk (opens in new tab) – is the ultimate footwear collection for men this season, and that’s clear just from looking at them. So just imagine how great they look and feel once you actually try a pair on.
All that famed technical know-how the experts all admire from Merrell placed into an urban style collection: it’s a real two-for-one. They encapsulate the spirit of the outdoors with the style of the street and can be worn in any environment. They’re as functional and practical as the best hiking boots but as street-smart as anything you have in your wardrobe.
The classy Eagle (£80, above) comes in dark green, light grey and grey, and is inspired by the high-performance hiking boots Merrell made its name with back when the company was founded in 1981. The Solo (£70, below), available in light grey and dark green, is a trainer with timeless Eighties style in abundance that won’t look out of place anywhere.
Both the Eagle boot and Solo trainer have a suede upper that is both durable and stylish, a breathable mesh lining to keep you feeling fresh and the famous Merrell Air Cushion in the heel will maintain your comfort at all times. And let’s not overlook the contrasting details that ensure the accent colours really pop on these urban classics.
Merrell Heritage is the best of the best and the best of both worlds. It's comfort and cool; town and country; modern and retro. Everything you need this season. Because adventure and the great outdoors are wherever you happen to find them.
