Merrell has released a range of tactical footwear


Merrell has released a range of tactical footwear offering unparalleled comfort and durability.

The Merrell Tactical range is built for the toughest environments with styles boasting a hard-wearing waterproof leather and ripstop upper, as well as boots featuring side-zips for easy entry and exit.

Warrick Smith from Merrell Australia has been conducting field testing of the Merrell Tactical range and is confident that these boots will provide the support and traction needed for long days in the field.

“We know that those in defense, special forces and security industries are already wearing boots from Merrell – so it made sense to introduce a line that catered to the unique requirements of these industries,” says Smith.

A number of specialist police and military units have been testing the Moab Tactical boot, with unanimous positive feedback about its durability and comfort, one officer commenting: I can’t stop telling the boys in the office to get a pair. They are the most comfortable work shoe I’ve worn since joining the job 9 years ago. It seriously felt as though I was wearing joggers and I was not impacted nor restricted as previously in service-issued footwear. I will definitely continue wearing Merrell.

The Merrell tactical range will include mid and 8″ options in both waterproof and ventilated styles, with a variety of the following leading technologies:

Trusted Traction

Vibram® TC5+ outsole delivers traction on any surface

Easy Entry

Medial side-zip available on most 8″ boot for easy on and off

Durable Materials

Waterproof leather and ripstop textiles built to stand up to the toughest jobs

The Merrell Tactical range will launch in Australia from mid-February 2018 at selected retailers.
