MERRELL unveils PRETTY STRONG campaign, launches New Collection for Women

October 29, 2013 Leave a comment

Merrell Pretty Strong


Today, more than ever, many women lead active lives. They are driven, passionate, goal-oriented, and influencers in their own right. They are versatile and have mastered the art of multi-tasking. They also excel in their chosen career paths and still find quality time for themselves. They can do anything if they put their minds and hearts to it. Simply put – women are pretty strong.

Borne out of the belief that women are naturally born with an innate strength, leading outdoor athletic footwear brand Merrell reaches out to these women through its Pretty Strong campaign.

Alongside the launch is the introduction of a performance shoe line specially-designed for women. Merrell’s women’s collection aims to keep pace with these active strong women with a line that complements their diverse lifestyles by providing tailor-made features, as well as durability and quality that they well deserve.

Merrell’s women’s new performance collection feature narrower and slimmer profiles. These shoes are made of durable, comfortable materials, and come in different color combinations. The collection is also versatile – great for everyday use, working out in the gym, and hitting the challenging outdoors training, running, and trekking.


For women who are into serious running, Pace Glove 2 is highly recommended with its excellent ground traction and secure fit. For those who are into running and training, Bare Access Arc 2 is ideal with its M-Bound cushioning that assures comfort in every movement.

On the other hand, Mix Master Move Glide is a flexible shoe built for multi-activity use. It is light enough to be worn during road and track runs. Meanwhile, for women who are looking for stable shoes opt for Road Glove Dash 2. It gives you the stability you need without the added weight and bulk.

Merrell’s Pretty Strong campaign reaffirms the brand’s commitment of continually inspiring people – especially pretty strong women – to get outside and see the outdoors in a new light.

Merrell is available at Merrell stores in Trinoma, SM North Edsa Annex, Market! Market! , Festival Mall Alabang, Marquee Mall Pampanga, Harbor Point Subic, SM City Dasmariñas, Ayala Center Cebu, Gaisano Mall Davao, Abreeza Mall Davao, SM Lanang Premier and SM Ecoland Davao. Merrell is also available in leading department stores and sports specialty stores nationwide.

I must admit, I’ve never worn a Skechers. I’ve always seen Skechers as a girly shoes. Case in point, my Nanay and my sister has many pairs of Skechers. From sandals to sneakers to boots to clogs… 
But after reading an article that Meb Keflezighi (Elite runner and Olympic silver medalist) achieved a new personal best time of 2:09:13. And was the fastest American at the 2011 ING New York City Marathon, wearing SKECHERS GO Run racing footwear I’m having second thoughts…

“It felt amazing to beat my previous personal best and 2009 winning time. It was an extremely challenging race with very fast and intense competition, and I am pleased with my achievement,” began Keflezighi.

“I felt strong going into it, training at high altitudes in my SKECHERS GO Run racing shoes, which definitely made a positive impact on my running. I’ve been a heel strike runner my entire life, but SKECHERS’ mid-foot strike technology has helped me adjust my stride to be more efficient. My shoes are my most essential piece of equipment and right now SKECHERS has the footwear I need to succeed. I’m excited to be partnering with this groundbreaking company.” 


from SKETCHERS GO Run press kit

SKECHERS GO Run is an innovative new minimalistic lightweight running line featuring revolutionary mid-foot strike technology and GO Impulse sensors for enhanced sensory feedback. Meb has provided SKECHERS with expert insight by testing and consulting on the design of SKECHERS GO Run as well as other high-performance products currently in development.
The GO Run shoe weighs just 5.9 ounces and has a 4mm drop to promote a midfoot strike. Key technical features include a barefoot last that is wider through the ball of the foot with a lower heel drop that moves the center of pressure forward. GO Impulse circular sensors on the outsole are positioned where impact points are greatest and are designed to provide traction, stability and reaction to the terrain. The GO Run also has a SmartShoe curved bottom that promotes natural motion, proprietary Resalyte injection molded cushioning with memory retention, and an OrthoLite anti-microbial sockliner.





Skechers entry into performance running comes at an interesting time as more people are running than ever before and the success of Meb proves the credibility of Skechers GO Run as a line of performance-oriented running shoe.
For hardcore athletes or running hobbyists, this is definitely a good shoe choice to help improve your run. Skechers GO Run—the way you’re supposed to run.

MERRELL Barefoot

April 10, 2011 Leave a comment

I was recently invited at the MERRELL Barefoot Launch at Market! Market! Although I wasn’t able to try one, I think it has a lot of potential.

Below is the article given to those who attended the launch…

Let your feet lead you on a Merrell barefoot adventure!

There’s a new sports craze that has running magazines, websites, and bloggers talking – barefoot or minimalist running.

Barefoot running is not as far-fetched as it sounds. This running technique is so effective that it has enthusiasts and serious athletes trying out “barefoot” or “barely there” running shoes.

This type of footwear allows people to get back outside and reconnect with nature every step of the way. Its lightweight yet protective design allows wearers to get a feel of their surroundings and develop better flexibility, balance, and awareness. No more waiting in line at the gym or fancy equipment for a day of fun and adventure outdoors.

Merrell’s Barefoot collection is comfortable enough to let you run and play outside with the kids, cruise the farmer’s market, or complete an urban road race. Merrell also partnered with Vibram to ensure that each Barefoot shoe model is durable and gives that unique feeling of being almost barefoot.

Unlike other minimalist footwear styles, the Merrell Barefoot collection is super lightweight, flexible, low profile, beneficial, and stylish. Its ergonomic designs also strengthens feet and legs, realigns posture, and stimulates the senses. All of these benefits in one pair of shoes.

Go on a Merrell Barefoot adventure now. Try the Merrell Barefoot collection at Merrell concept stores and outlets nationwide.


Merrell Barefoot Collection: Let your feet lead you

In 1960 Abebe Bikila was a late addition to the Ethiopian Olympic team, set to run the marathon. When he didn’t like the way his shoes fit before the race, he decided to scrap them and race barefoot, the way he had trained. Two hours and fifteen minutes later, he was Olympic champion, the hero of a nation and the first big name in barefoot running.

Almost 50 years later, Christopher McDougall publishes Born to Run, a book on the Tarahumara tribe in the remote mountains of Mexico and the unique yet efficient barefoot running style. Slowly, people started notice barefoot running and its benefits.

With these in mind, Merrell partnered with Vibram® to produce an exclusive Barefoot Collection for the outdoor category. Minimalist, lightweight, versatile, and efficient, the Merrell Barefoot Collection allows feet to grip authentic natural surfaces and lead sports enthusiasts into their preferred outdoor activities.
This new footwear style helps create a more natural stride because it encourages a forward momentum and mid-foot landing. It also provides a lower impact and an aligned and effortless gait. The Merrell Barefoot Collection is designed to stimulate different muscles, strengthen the core, and improve agility.

Walking, running or going around barefoot is usually a unique and pleasurable experience for everyone. People love being barefoot because it creates a connection with nature and what they’re doing. But since most people aren’t willing to go to work, hike a trail, or ride a bike completely shoe-less (not to mention most restaurants and shops won’t let you completely barefoot), this new shoe styles are ideal for people who are looking for that connection.

The Barefoot Collection for men includes the Trail Glove, True Glove, and Tough Glove. All three styles are extremely lightweight and versatile and can take you from the trail to walking around town.

Ladies will take a liking for the Merrell Pace Glove, Power Glove, and Pure Glove. All shoe models follow the Merrell’s credo “Performance Made Beautiful,” because they fit well and look good at the same time.

Try the Merrell Barefoot Collection now at Merrell concept stores and all leading department stores. Go outdoors with the Merrell Barefoot!

Gone Na’vi

December 23, 2009 8 comments

Na’vi what?

From the movie AVATAR, The Na’vi are a race of sentient extraterrestrial humanoids who inhabit the lush jungle moon of Pandora. Humans are known to refer to them as “Blues”, “Savages” or “the locals”.

About an hour ago I have no idea what a Na’vi is if it wasn’t for Tim. Thanks bro!

But let’s not talk about the movie… I haven’t seen it yet.

Here’s why the name Na’vi came up.

hello… my name is Na’vi
orig price: P5,495.00

I bought the shoe… err, Na’vi yesterday. While lurking at shoutbox, I followed a conversation regarding a shoe store in Makati selling Nike Lunarglide+ for 3K+.

As I’m not a fan of overpriced shoes, I thought “wow, 40% off!!!”. I searched for the shoe store’s number and gave them a call. I inquired about the shoe and the sales lady told me that it’s their last pair for men’s. I asked about the size… lo and behold it’s 10.5!!! woot!!! My size!!!

I used my afternoon break time to check out the shoe. Reached the store, immediately tried them on, paid for it, then zoom back to the office.

Haven’t break in Na’vi yet. But checking on reviews by Vener, Sam and Natz, I know I made a steal. =D

Now, where can I get a compression tights that has the same colors…
