Get Outside This Summer With Merrell Shoes

Published: Tue Jul 06 2010

With the British summertime blessed with clear blue skies, brilliant sunshine and soaring temperatures, there’s never been a better time to follow the Merrell motto and Get Outside.

"Merrell is all about going camping with your mates, walking the dog and generally enjoying your surroundings, whether they’re urban or rural", explains MD Luke Barlow. "And at FitnessFootwear we’ve been wearing and selling Merrell shoes for as long as we can remember. They’re very much a part of our company culture."

The Hertfordshire based retailer has been keen to promote the health benefits of walking in summer, not only for exercise, but also for an essential source of Vitamin D.

"Garden parties and barbeques can leave you feeling full up and when the heat makes you tired as well, the last thing you want to do it exercise," said Luke. "But, going for a stroll to walk off a big meal is nice and easy."

Because walking is an endurance exercise, it uses all the essential muscles, providing the perfect way to stay in shape this summer, no matter how many plates of barbequed meat someone can eat!

Secondly, cardiovascular exercise combined with exposure to sunlight helps to produce more Vitamin D in the body, which better regulates calcium and phosphate in the blood for healthier bones.

Walking, sunshine and Merrell footwear makes a great combination for the summer, with many of the Merrell shoes on sale combining casual comfort and style with active outdoor features.

Merrell Chameleon Wrap Slam trainers are some of the best selling Merrells of all time while Merrell Intercept shoes are hard wearing multi-sport shoes designed for all manner of outdoor pursuits.

"I have a pair of each," added Luke. "I’ve had the Wrap Slams for two years and they’re still great trainers. My Intercepts have been pretty well worn, but they’re still my favourites for walking and running off road. I’d definitely recommend both to someone trying Merrell shoes for the first time."
