Not really waterproof :( Was very excited about taking my cool looking and super comfortable Capras on my early 2018 winter hikes. Initial experience was that shoes are comfortable and had excellent grip on a challenging terrain. Big surprise came when I realized that contrary to Merrell's claim, they are far from being waterproof. So far I've gone on just 2 hikes along trails covered in maybe 1 - 3" of snow. Naturally some snow gotten on the top of the toe box of the shoe. I paid little attention to this, comfortable in the knowledge that the Surround GoreTex lining will keep my feet dry. To my disappointment that did not happen. I was the only person in our group who ended the hike with cold and wet toes. Same happened on the second hike with even less snow on the ground. Also, after just 3 hikes and total of 33 miles, the white accent threads (apparently introduced for decorative purposes into the mesh of the outside shell ) started to disintegrate along the creases on the top of the toe area. This gave practically new shoes somewhat aged and sad look. I gave the product 3 stars for its comfort and grip. Took off 2 stars for poor water proofing and quality of the external shell. I bought shoes brand new from REI. REI had discontinued this model. I do not know the reason, but suspect they expected better quality at this price point and from a well respected manufacturer. My final verdict, based on the pair shipped to my by REI, that in this particular instance, you do NOT get what you pay for.

A boot that delivers - almost I purchased these boots as soon as they wee available last winter from my local Merrell store (alas it has since closed). Found the boot to be extremely comfortable and the grip on wet rocks has been outstanding but in mud they seem to slip and slide a little more than I would like. I have over 800 miles in them over the last 11 months under all conditions(snow, ice, hot and humid, cool and dry) They are as comfortable today as the first mile I walked in them and the soles have very reasonable tread wear. The one thing that limits my rating is the Gore-tex surround, its not performing as well as I expected, perhaps its due to the overall breathability of the boots. However, given the price point I would expect that to perform better than I have experienced.

A great vegan walking boot I spent a lot of time looking for a vegan walking boot. I bought these online after much consideration. I did not find they needed breaking in much, and then walked in these for 7 days straight up Kilimanjaro - these are amazing boots, I suffered no blisters whatsoever. Super happy with them - if anyone is looking for a hiking boot I would definitely recommend.

If NASA and Bear Gryllis were to make a boot These boots are so comfortable my wife keeps getting me into trouble for wearing them to bed! I wear them in the shower I wear them to play football My daughter wears them to ballet class Puddles fear me! Mountains crumble under my booted feet! I'm going to get these boots tattooed on my feet so when I'm not wearing them (which is never) I'll still be reminded of their mighty power! All my socks want to be worn! My toenails clip themselves in fear of disappointing the boots! These boots made me a better man, my wife loves me again.

Theses are the most comfortable shoes I ever had. Hi just purchased on their canadian site two pairs of the "CAPRA MID SPORT GORE-TEX" J65023, that look identical to theses, after wearing the first pair for a couple of days.. They are amazingly lightweight. How long will they last ? I have not the slightest idea. I had an accident some 25 years ago, that required that one of my ankle be repaired with two steel plates held by 6 screws, that are still there today. Since that accident I need orthopedic soles, that I was able to install without a problem in theses new shoes. I walked a minimum of 5 miles everyday. I am 71 years old, and they have been the most comfortable shoes I ever had
