Merrell Shoes: Why we love them and you will too

Shoes by the company Merrell are the most comfortable shoes Al’s Army Navy carries. Many of the sales associates wear these shoes, and the owner is a huge fan as well. If you want a lightweight, waterproof shoe or hiking boot that is great for outdoor activities, look not further than Merrell.

It was founded by Clark Matis, Randy Merrell, and John Schweizer in 1981 as an American made hiking boot. Over the years, they have perfected their craft even further by offering more options.

You will feel comfortable enough wearing these shoes around town or on a trail. They offer men, women and kids sizes, as well as clothing for every occasion. Train for a competition in these shoes or simply walk around the neighborhood.

Merrell shoes and clothing are quality pieces that stand up to years of wear and tear. It’s why we carry them in our stores and wear them in our down time. Come in to our stores and see what all the hype is about. We can also order you anything we don’t currently stock by Merrell.
