For National Parks Week this year, we're excited to announce our partnership with Merrell on a collection of national park-inspired hiking boots for Isle Royale National Park, Katahdin Woods & Waters National Monument, and Vermillion Cliffs National Monument! We all need a lot of fresh air these days and we're so happy to partner with Merrell to provide people with an exciting new way to explore the outdoors (safely with physical distancing in mind of course) in great-looking boots that support independent artists and worthy social causes. We hope you enjoy this story of how two companies, three independent artists and our precious public lands came together to make these beautiful new hiking boots!
