About Merchant1948

Life’s a journey, not a destination; choose your footwear well. We’ve been putting shoes on New Zealand feet since 1948
Footwear is our passion, from the shoe itself through to the complete experience. Merchant 1948 (the new name for Overland) is a proudly New Zealand business, with stores across the country and in Melbourne too; we’re also still family owned and run.

This heritage and pride informs everything we do; family is everything to us, and we run our company like one – with values at our very core and a focus on our people.

Our range of shoes and bags are sourced around the world, from Italy, Portugal and beyond; we celebrate the journey of footwear.
