Tough Mudder 




Merrell and Tough Mudder teamed up for 2016 to bring out the biggest, baddest obstacle challenge yet! So we geared up the courageous members of our team to take part in Tough Mudder UK!

Tough Mudder is all about teamwork and fun and usually takes on average about 3 - 3.5 hours to complete the course and the obstacles! We kitted up our guys and girls in Merrell shoes - here's what they had to say!

Mim Gardner at Head Office says, "My Merrell shoes are fantastic and lightweight, perfect for the challenge in hand. The minimalist design and flexibility of the shoe enabled free movement of the foot through each stride, without restrictive padding or unnecessary support hindering natural movement. Very responsive to drainage after the water obstacles which is credit to the features! The challenge was fantastic and I would most definitely do it again!"

Paul Regan, Head Office says, "Tough Mudder was dirty, wet, and shockingly entertaining, not as tough as the name suggests but more like a lot of fun. The shoes made a massive difference on the day and whilst it may not look like it, I don't think any of us fell over - highly impressed and I would recommend - they even wash well!" 


Steph from Hereford Robin Elt Shoes stores commented on Merrell Shoes, "They were absolutely fantastic! Considering we only received them on the day and it's generally a good idea never to wear new shoes for an event I didn't even notice I had them on. They fit perfectly, They were unbelievably comfortable and they helped out a great deal in the slightly shadier areas of the course! I personally found that in the mud mile, or when it came to climbing the slippy obstacles, it was largely down to the shoes that I even made it, the grip was excellent and I felt comfortable all day. My proudest fact from Tough Mudder was despite all the obstacles, the mud, the sliding around I didn't fall down once - I think I have my Merrells to thank for that! The challenge itself was an incredible experience, and something I would 100% absolutely take on again, I loved it."

Terry from Leominster Robin Elt Shoes says, "The shoes were so comfortable! On the day, the weather was quite rainy which made the ground much muddier. But, it didn't really affect Steph and I because the grips on the shoes stopped us from slipping over. The shoes were very supportive and they were very breathable, so our feet didn't get too hot. The shoes only arrived the morning of the Tough Mudder so we didn't get a chance to break them in. But they were like wearing a pair of slippers- so comfortable! 
The challenge was so fun but very difficult! The hardest part was the swim through ice water and the electric shocks and it took us about 4 hours to complete. I would definitely do it again!"
