If, by this point, your wardrobe doesn’t at least have some Filson gear in it, we’d wager you’re not equipped accordingly — yet, that is. The Pacific Northwest heritage brand built its fame on rugged outerwear, tough-as-can-be flannel shirts, rugged chore pants and the like, and even with that illustrious history, they continue to look to innovate and add new products into the mix. It’s fitting, in this case, that they’ve turned toward the footwear purveyors at Merrell — masters of comfort and go-anywhere durability — to make a standout pair of trail running shoes to enliven your next off-road run.
The Filson x Merrell MQM Trail Runner features all the essentials: A GORE-TEX waterproof lining, a rugged-yet-comfortable air-cushioned heel, a tough nylon ripstop upper for added protection from the hard-wearing trail. Plus, the color scheme — a rich olive and black — calls to mind Filson’s favorite shades for the best outdoor gear on the planet. You can’t ask for a better combo.
