This is something you will not see very often, a collaboration with a top-notch quality outdoor brand who I have seen grow exponentially in my 15 years working at the Z. Merrell is one of those brands I have a ton of respect for and for all the right reasons. The brand stays true to their roots and they continue to create innovative product that will continuously change the game.

The style I’ve been wanting to work with for years was finally made available to me and the goal was to create some timeless classics with the brand. For this release there are three versions of the Wilderness. Made in Italy and priced at $300, the oily chestnut suede, oily beige suede, and dark brown oily leather will be available for purchase this Friday 10am est. at the David Z. flagship (556 Broadway, Ny, 10012, 212.431.5450) as well as online at
