Four old-school hiking boot styles ideal for wearing in the city
Wander along to an OFFICE or Schuh shop and you can try on a pair of the following styles from Merrell’s Heritage Collection.
Two styles – called the Stowe and the 1SIX8 – are on sale at OFFICE. While the other two styles – called the Eagle and the Solo – are on sale at Schuh.
Here’s how Merrell describes them.
Merrell says: “The Stowe shoe is a new outdoor trainer that is equally at home both in the city and the trail. Packed with performance technology, this style will keep feet protected and comfortable. Available in high and low ankle versions in a range of muted khakis or primary pop colours, Stowe will offer you the ultimate modern outdoor design.”
Merrell says: “Did you know there are 168 hours in a week? Get your feet into a pair of shoes you can wear for every one of those hours with Merrell’s 1SIX8 (168) style. This is more than a shoe, it’s a mentality; a way of life grounded in the city but also built to last through any day’s worth of urban and light outdoor adventures. Uniquely styled in a Mid, Lace and Moc style, this synthetic leather and fabric shoe offers a dramatic high-tech look. As you might expect from a shoe designed to be your constant companion there’s a number of useful technologies included such as Organic odour control in the footbed, an air cushioned heel and a high rebound midsole for supreme stability and comfort. Enjoy your 1SIX8 adventure.”
Merrell says: “A fresh, colourful, modernised take on a traditional hiking boot style, complete with lace enclosure and heel air cushion. Practical and versatile, these boots will give you the traction and support you expect from a hiker but with additional retro vintage vibes.”
Merrell says: “Offers bold athletic-inspired construction, with running shoe comfort. Solo combines classic tones with pops of neon for a truly modern, confident aesthetic. With bright contrasting colourways, Solo will be sure to grab you the attention you deserve.”
