Merrell Launches ‘Scrap’ Line


Merrell has launched a limited run footwear collection called Scrap that is built partially using excess materials from the production line. The Scrap product line includes three styles: Jungle Moc Scrap ($125), Moab 3 Scrap ($130) and Moab Speed Scrap ($150).

Each Scrap shoe has a unique pattern, with the uppers made from the brand's individual leftover scrap material that may have otherwise ended up in the waste stream. The scraps are uniquely placed, cut, and stitched onto the footwear.

"The Scrap line's signature feature is the computerized grid stitch to trap all the normally unusable scrap pieces, leading to a unique aesthetic across the collection," said Ian Cobb, senior design director, Merrell. "This was a passion project for our team as we look to merge style with eco-conscious decisions such as making footwear with excess materials from the production process."

The line is being released in honor of Zero Waste Week, an annual international campaign to educate and support efforts to reduce landfill waste, which takes place the first full week of September.
