“The health, safety and well-being of the Merrell team, our consumers, and the communities in which we live, work, and play is the most important consideration today and always. As we cope with the ever-changing circumstances related to COVID-19, we believe we have to take unprecedented steps to protect our teams and our consumers, and to reduce the pressure on our healthcare professionals and local communities.”
– Chris Hufnagel, Merrell President
This week we delivered 1,200 pairs of our Merrell Pro and Merrell Tactical shoes and boots to our local hospitals Spectrum Health and Mercy Health, as well as to the Grand Rapids Fire Department and Police Department. We could not be more proud to call West Michigan home and we want to support those on the frontlines working tirelessly to protect the health and safety of everyone in our community and beyond. We hope a new pair of shoes can be a bright spot for these brave people during these unprecedented times, and we thank them for their work and service to our community.

Merrell Instagram Contest Supporting Local Outdoor Retailers
We passed 300,000 followers @merrell! Thank you to every one of you in our Merrell Community. As Merrell Ambassador Will “Akuna” Robinson said recently, practicing social distancing doesn’t mean we can’t connect, we just need to do things differently – outside as well. Merrell wants to help spread joy safely and respectfully outside and on the trail. That is why between now and April 17th, we are giving away 30 gift cards worth $200 each supporting our local outdoor retailer partners (retailers will be chosen dependent on winner location).
To participate, tag @merrell in a post on your Instagram feed and show us how you are spreading good vibes and Merrell Magic on the trail. Winners will be selected randomly and contacted through a DM message.
