New to HANON for the Fall/Winter season is the latest top tier servings from outdoor specialists Merrell.
Founded in the early 80’s as the result of a veritable meeting of the minds, the company took the expert craft and skills of company namesake Randy Merrell, whom happened to be a dab hand at making western cowboy boots, and the enthusiasm & acumen of Clark Matis & John Schweizer to create outdoor-ready footwear and boots for the then burgeoning past time of backpacking in the USA.
Steadily increasing their scope as time went on by bringing in and mixing footwear technologies to offer a solid and forward-looking range of footwear built for the outdoors.
This season sees Merrell’s 1TRL line arrive at our door which is the best that Merrell has to offer and showcases the brands commitment to design, comfort, durability, and versatility. Scroll down to get acquainted with this season offering!
Merrell 1TRL MQM Ace LTR
Starting with a brand new 1TRL exclusive, the MQM Ace Suede is introduced into the collection. This material-rich iteration of the MQM franchise combines a rich suede upper boasting a strong suit of colour options with a trail-ready outsole for a dynamic alternative to the classic walking shoe.
Merrell 1TRL Nova Traveller JPN
The Nova Traveler JPN is the perfect fusion of outdoor ready style that's suited to day to day wear in urban environments. If your feet are hitting those rainy leaf strewn pavements on the daily, then the Nova Traveller and its EVA cushioned multi-tone Vibram rubber outsole have got your back! A plush suede nap and mesh upper keep things casual and suited to day to day styling.
Merrel 1TRL Jungle Moc.
The humble Jungle Moc is often considered a bit of a pariah shoe. This titan of the comfort game is all you need in these turbulent times as we navigate our way through the confusing states of lockdowns and zones. A shoe that can traverse situations dressing up or down, it goes from lounging in the front room and pottering about the house to trail tussles and ascents up the nearest beauty spot with ease.
A plush pigskin suede upper is offered in a deep black or luxe camel and is paired with a suitably outdoorsy “Squid Inspired” Dual Density Compression moulded EVA sole unit that puts comfort first and foremost. We’d advice pairing these with some baggy fitting trousers and your best fleece. Or for further inspiration, peep the king of streetstyle and champion of the everyday himself Mr. Mordechai Rubinstein (Mr Mort). Mr Rubinstein’s fits in the PAA AW20 show makes a strong case for why the Jungle Moc needs to find a home in your rotation.
