Merrell collaborates with Trail Sisters on women-specific trainers
Trail Sisters, a women’s trail running community and online journal, has partnered with performance footwear brand Merrell on the design for two women-specific trail running shoes.
The shoes, called the Antora and the Banshee, will feature a print designed by artist Sarah Uhl. Gina Lucrezi, founder of Trail Sisters, is said to have asked Ms Uhl to make the image “as loud and proud as possible”.
With the launch of the collaboration, Merrel debuted “Ripple Effect”, a short film that celebrates the centennial of the 19th Amendment of the US Constitution (which gave American women the right to vote).
