The fit of your shoe is a very important factor in the user experience. We’ve had many people asking us what the best size is for Merrell Barefoot. Should you buy your size, a size down, a size up? To help with any questions, see below for your best bet.
We are pretty pleased with our new Barefoot range of shoes. So far the response has been amazing from both our customers and the industry. Now to top things off - Runners World US, has voted the Merrell Trail Glove as their best debut shoe.
This year, we’re proud to say that Merrell is turning 30. We know that some people get a bit freaked out by milestone birthdays, but for us, we can’t be more excited! You see, we think the fact that we’ve been kicking around (pun intended) for 30 years is something to be proud of. Really proud, because it means that although we think we make great shoes and clothing, you do too.
Barefoot Running University’s Jason Robillard shared his thoughts on the new Merrell Trail Glove. Let’s just say – we were honored!
In 1960 Abebe Bikila was a late addition to the Ethiopian Olympic team, set to run the marathon. When he didn’t like the way his shoes fit before the race, he decided to scrap them and race barefoot, the way he had trained. Two hours and fifteen minutes later, he was Olympic champion, the hero of a nation and the first big name in barefoot running.
