Over three decades ago, Randy Merrell began designing and manufacturing handmade custom boots for a small group of outdoor enthusiasts. Even back then Backpacker Magazine was calling them, “The best hiking boots ever made.” Since then we’ve come a long way – a journey that has helped shape our products, our people, and our purpose to become one of the world’s top manufacturers of outdoor equipment. From our very first custom made hiking boots to our latest product innovations, we make all of our products with four core values in mind: Comfort, Durability, Design, and Versatility. It’s all about removing the barriers to enjoying the great outdoors.
Merrell took on the improbable when a few of our mountain ambassadors came to us with a request: build a shoe that has never been built before. One that was light and flexible enough to propel someone up the mountain, yet stable and protective enough to give someone confidence on the charge back down. These athletes simply feel called to “Moving Quickly in the Mountains.” Out of this came the MQM FLEX, our fastest light hiker to date.
The MQM features the FLEXCONNECT Midsole that flexes with your foot for unparalleled connection, a ballistic mesh upper mapped over high-wear areas for increased durability, and durable M-Select Grip+ rubber provides grip when things get technical.
