ROCKFORD, Mich. – Merrell, the outdoor performance and lifestyle brand, has introduced their Undyed Collection. The Undyed Collection is “Made clean to get dirty” and features all-white undyed uppers made with partially recycled mesh and natural rubber outsoles.
Compared to traditionally dyed shoes, the Undyed Collection employs recycled materials, reduces water use by 80%, and saves 50% overall energy through the production process*.
“At Merrell, we’re dedicated to delivering high-quality, durable performance products that meet the needs of everyone getting outside,” said Shaun Bohnsack, Sr. Director of Performance Product Development at Merrell. “We continue to evolve our manufacturing systems to reduce raw material, energy, and water usage in our commitment to protecting the trail by lessening our environmental impact. This season, we are thrilled to share the Undyed Collection, a line infused with sustainable materials and processes that doesn’t sacrifice the needed aspects of trail-ready footwear.”
The line includes eco-friendly iterations of fan-favorite performance trail runners: Agility Synthesis 2, MTL Skyfire, and Vapor Glove.
The Undyed Collection is now available Merrell.com . MSRP starts at $90.
Merrell® exists to share the simple power of being outside. We believe the trail is for everyone. Our goal is to provide thoughtfully designed, rigorously tested products that over-deliver on performance, versatility and durability.
