Merrell Shoes: Perfect for your summer getaway

I’m the kind of guy who likes to try different clothes, footwear and accessories from different brands and just lately, I saw a nice pair of shoes that caught my attention. These pair of shoes is from Merrell, a shoe brand which I realized should be getting more attention after I got myself a first-grade white shoes from them.

Killer-looks

I never thought that Merrell has an attractive line-up of shoes like this one. If you look closely, you will surely love the gray and white combination of colors plus the big brown “M” on its side as much as I did. It’s distinctly bold and very catchy to the eyes. Very striking to wear especially if you have your black jeans on and would like to show off some style. Needless to say, after wearing it last Friday, I found most of my officemates staring down at my feet.

Outdoor or casual gimmicks

One reason I got myself a new shoe is for my summer getaways and travels with friends and families. I think this shoe will be perfect for such events. If you have been following Pinoy Guy Guide for a while, you may have noticed that I go for dual-purpose apparel – one which I can use for two or more occasions, not just one. This kind of shoe in particular is a good example which I can use not only for outdoor activities but also for my weekend gimmicks with friends.

Comfort and performance

I also tried my new pair of stylish shoes this weekend and it feels really comfortable to wear. I think you should try it and see for yourself. Maybe next time I’ll take this with me when I go to the gym.

Anyone here who also has a pair from Merrell? I want to know, how do you find it?

Merrell shoes are my ultimate choice for outdoor activities…reinventing their image also helped them a lot (business wise)…

Merrell is a sister company of Skechers btw.

I’ve always loved their designs.

Pero, hanggang tingin lang talaga ako, because their shoes are waaaaayy expensive compared to my “average” type of shoes, hehe 🙂

Gee, 4,500 pesos? I wonder if buying that shoes at that price will make people stop, turn their heads, and drop their jaws; otherwise, a lower priced quality pair of shoes will do for me.

My boyfriend and I each bought a pair of Merrell shoes for our Pinatubo hike last January. I’d have to say it was money well spent since we didn’t have to worry about the slippery terrain and stepping on rocks. My friend’s Pumas didn’t do so well though.. they fell apart and he had to trek back in his flip flops!

Hahaha!

Good Luck on the white shoes. Among the other product line-ups of Merrell. This one really sucks?

I should know i did bought a pair of white shoes from this brand. Sad to say the white leather and sole becomes yellowish after 3 months of using it. I do frequently clean all my shoes regulary. And all my white shoes are in good condition up to now except for this one.

About the other products of Merrell thumbs up! I do own several boots Like Sawtooth, Chameleon and Water Pro Ultrasport.

So far all these shoes have past my torture test!

Highly recommended for Outdoor Activities such as Biking, Airsoft, Caving, and Hiking.

Hi Fellas,

I’ve been a Merrell user ever since. I have had with me this pair of shoes since 2003 that is starting to deteriorate right now. I bought it for around P4,500.00 pero sulit naman kasi I’ve been using this everyday at work, going out with my family, vacations, mountain treking and all of my activities. You know what, nung bago pa siya. it is so comfortable to wear and it really gives me the comfort na hindi ko naexperience sa ibang shoe brands. Kaya i have to stick to this brand even though may kamahalan. At least yung P4,500.00 ko have lasted for almost 6 years and counting. Kung iba pa yung ginagamit ko cguro naka 3 pairs na ako ngayon. In which mas mahal pa kung pagsama-samahin ang price.

Kaya highly recommended ko ang Merrell. Try nyo lang…

Regards,

quite expensive, pero worth every cent. Yung 4K worth of shoes mo would last for at least 3 years, diba sobrang good deal yon?

Hello, I have two pairs of Merrell sneaker Bought one pair while
living in the Philippines my wife picked them out for me
my pair was white with the black trim. then back in the states, I couldn’t locate them. the same color so I ordered a pair that was
tan and brown, didn’t care for the color. I paid around 3,500 to 4,000
pesos at the time.
