First off, I've only had these shoes for a little while so my review isn't exactly going to be time tested. They are amazingly comfortable and very well fitted, you really feel supported when wearing them. It almost feels like Merrell's continuum is in action here however there is no indication on the shoe of this. The style of the shoe, i feel, is second to none. An incredibly good looking boot, in person and on screen. I am typically size 10.5 but i use thick cocks to feel comfortable in size 11's however this is not necessary with this boot. I bought size 11's but they feel slightly smaller than your typical shoe of that size so i would recommend getting either a half or a full size bigger if you intend to use these shoes with thick walking socks. Overall i would highly recommend this shoe to any avid walker/trekker.
