The Merrell Brand

The company began over three decades ago when Randy Merrell was designing and manufacturing handmade custom boots for a small group of outdoor enthusiasts. It started with a custom pair of cowboy boots and from there, Randy made the switch to crafting handmade boots. Over time, he started making hiking boots and word of his work spread rapidly. In 1981, Randy teamed up with Clark Matis and John Schweizer. His craftsmanship paired with Clark and John’s industry experience and athletic instincts created a perfect team. Together, they began to design a more affordable model of high-performance hiking boots. And just like that the brand Merrell was born. See all of our Merrell styles here.

Merrell Sizing + Fit

Merrell uses standard US sizing. The Choprock is available only in a medium width. However, this “shandal”, shoe sandal hybrid, can accommodate a wider foot, bunions, and even a custom orthotic. Just be sure to not get it wet!

Men’s: 7-15

Women’s: 5-11

For both men’s and women’s, we offer two color options. Check them out here.

These fit pretty true to size, with room for adjustability. The synthetic mesh upper allows for adjustability, while the webbing loops offer a secure fit. The shandal itself weighs 1lb 12 oz. Overall, it’s pretty light and easy to slip on and go.

It contains a synthetic mesh upper (water friendly!), a rubber toe bumper (for toe protection), webbing loops (for a secure fit), a molded thermal polyurethane heel counter for security, a hydro-morph midsole with channels that are porous allowing for water evacuation and ventilation, a kinetic-fit base with removable EVA insole, a compression fit EVA midsole, and last but not least – a Vibram mega grip 5mm lug.
