Do you know who loves the outdoors and helping good causes as much as we do? Merrell shoes! We enjoyed our first collaboration with them so much we did it again – introducing a new line of trail running shoes inspired by See America posters of our nation's most celebrated through-hikes, the Appalachian Trail, the Pacific Crest Trail and the Continental Divide Trail. One part inspiration and one part commemoration, our new shoe collection helps support Earthjustice organization. Integral to the collection are amazing poster designs the shoes were inspired by, from artists Brooke Fischer, Jonathan Scheele and Annie Riker. We really hope you love reading the story of how this project came to be. Our heartfelt thanks to Merrell for always being down to party with us in support of a worthy organization!

Fellow hikers and trail enthusiasts will know that nothing compares to the majesty of U.S. national parks, and that some of the longest hiking trails in the country, like the Continental Divide Trail, the Appalachian Trail and the Pacific Crest Trail, are equally amazing. These three trails were chosen to inspire our new See America trail running collaboration with Merrell, and the resulting Nova 2 trail running shoes for both men and women came out great! Styled after the vintage vibes reflected in the iconic See America poster series, the limited-edition Merrell Nova 2 lets you take a piece of the three most famous trails in the United States with you wherever you go. It's the perfect escape vehicle for when you’re ready to answer the call of the wild.
