If you’re still hoping to do a quick getaway with friends this summer, no need to travel miles away because you can still have plenty a good time exploring in the city! All it takes is an open mind, a little research, and of course, quality gear. Good news on the latter as just in time, global brand Merrell launches just the products for it.
In the brand’s wanderlust-filled Let’s Getaway campaign with new ambassador James Reid, Merrell stays true to its mission of encouraging everyone to enjoy all sorts of adventures.

Whether you enjoy trying out hidden cafes, checking out museums and galleries, or even a pop-up event, Merrell equips you to experience the best of what an urban landscape has to offer with its versatile, tech-filled footwear.
