ROCKFORD, Mich. (March 6, 2020) — Powerful alone, women are unstoppable together. Merrell partnered with Trail Sisters on the design for the print of two of their women’s-specific trail runners: the Antora and Banshee (launching end of March 2020).

Trail Sisters is a community of women with a mission to grow participation and opportunity in trail running. Gina Lucrezi, founder of Trail Sisters, handpicked artist Sarah Uhl to design the print of the shoe, with the ask to make it as loud and proud as possible.

Alongside the launch of the collaboration and International Women’s Day, Merrell debuted the short film “Ripple Effect”. Shot in Colorado by women filmmakers, the film celebrates the centennial of the 19th Amendment by sharing the work of sculptor Jane DeDecker. DeDecker created a monument dedicated to the women who fought tirelessly to make it possible for women to vote. To help raise awareness, Merrell sent Trail Sisters founder Gina Lucrezi, and Merrell trail running ambassadors Anna Frost and Mirna Valerio to Jane’s studio in Loveland, Colorado.
