I have been looking for a shoe that could take me from the campground to being a tourist in town to shorter hikes while traveling. I found it with the Merrell All Out Bold. My shoes arrived yesterday, and I immediately took out on a 5 mile hike to see if they were going to work. No break-in needed – comfortable from the first step, and I love how they look. I was really worried how the strap was going to work because I have a really high arch so was concerned it would be too binding, but it’s stretchable without giving too much. I wore no socks – no blisters. These shoes are a perfect blend of utilitarian in the outdoors and yet also perfect later for trips into town. I often get up early for a quick hike/walk with our dog before everyone else is up, and it’s great to find a slip-on for quick take offs first thing in the morning. I’ll still take my Merrell Moabs for more rigorous, rocky, unstable trails, but it’s going to be great taking only two pairs of shoes on my trips to meet all my needs – the Merrell All Out Bolds and the Moabs. My only problem- I’m going to have to buy another pair of All Out Bolds because I can tell they’ll also be my favorite shoe for home!
