Since its release in 1998, MERRELL's brand icon ``JUNGLE MOC'' has attracted users all over the world with its "unique comfort" that you will never forget once you wear it. mock)". In recent years, it has attracted attention not only for its comfort, but also for its retro and unique style, which has remained a masterpiece since the 1990s, and has been attracting attention as a "fashion tool" among people of all ages. In the spring of 2023, the new generation model “JUNGLE EVO”, which has evolved with new technology and sustainable materials, will be released. The entire upper structure (upper lining, webbing, footbed) is made of 100% recycled polyester, achieving the highest level of sustainability in Jungle Mock history. For the first time, the midsole uses ``FloatPro TM'' foam, which is used in performance shoes such as trail running and hiking. The ultra-lightweight performance sole with excellent cushioning provides greater comfort than ever before, maximizing the feeling of a memory-like fit to the sole of your foot. Furthermore, the midsole is made with 20% recycled EVA, making it a sustainable structure. In addition, the outsole uses a newly designed outsole that reduces the rubber area to the minimum necessary and contains 15% recycled rubber. By making the entire shoe more sustainable and carefully reviewing its structure, we succeeded in achieving both improved cushioning and an overwhelming weight reduction compared to the conventional Jungle Mock. ``Unrivaled comfort'' has further evolved.
