I ran a Merrell/Subaru sponsored mud run and after test driving a Subaru, got a gift certificate for $110 in Merrell Money! (I don't think it is actually called "Merrell Money", but it should be.) Anyway, I've been slacklining for a few years now and have kept the sport strictly to the Spring/Summer/Fall seasons. This year, I want to set up a long line (~100') during a Pennsylvania snow storm (should the weather provide). The only problem is footwear. Although I've seen videos of people slacklining in high-on-the-ankle boots, I prefer freedom of movement in my ankles as I'm still new enough to wobble quite a bit. Sneakers are out for the immediate sock-soak. I wanted something for this application that would also have qualities fitting for moderately difficult trail hiking/climbing. I searched Merrell's site for a few weeks. What a selection. I had it narrowed down to either the Moab Waterproof or the Pulsate Waterproof. Another week went by and I still couldn't decide. Then... as if written in the stars... a NEW shoe popped up in my search. (Or had I missed it all this time?) The All Out Blaze Stretch Waterproof "Look at how low the sides are!" "Love the orange accents." "Huh, a speed hiking shoe. Never heard of "speed" hiking before." "Hmmm... stretch IS good for slacklining." "Oh wow... "cushioning that absorbs shock while firming up for confident take-offs"... what a way to describe a shoe. I want confident take-offs. I'd also like the job of describing gear for Merrell." This was the one. I received the shoes on a Friday when I returned from work. Although I was rushing to catch a train into the city with my bike, I took the time to try them on. Using a shoe horn, I slipped them on my feet and took a few steps around. My typically selective feet quickly fell in love (lust?) with this new footwear. They're like wearing sturdy slippers. Snug without restriction. Weight without bulk. Usually I try to break in shoes slower than this, but I kept them on, grabbed my bike and rode down to the train station. My lady and I rode bikes to the dinner that night. Rode on to a local bar to see a band. Danced a bit. Rode home. Although I felt no pain, I half-expected to find a blister at the end of the night. New footwear can be stiff and unforgiving to a lumpy foot. I found nothing. Since then I've worn these shoes for daily medium-active use. Always with wool socks. They've taken hikes through the Wissahickon Park. They've biked many miles and walked even more. They've slacklined. Wonderfully. They've stood up to a cold downpour. My feet stayed dry and relatively warm. The size after all of this has stayed true. Very little loosening of the structure which I appreciate. There is a small learning curve on the pull-lace tightening system. If pulled too tight, your foot with tell you. If too loose, you'll feel a bit of give. My give was around the sides but I was using them up on the slackline which puts a lot of pressure on the sides of the shoes I'm wearing. I mostly wear them a bit on the loose side and they snuggle my feet comfortably through the day. I couldn't be happier with the pick and I'm looking forward to the first snow storm slackline session. Have fun!

This is the first time I have purchased the BLAZE Model. It fits nicely, but probably will go back to the Chameleon for future hiking shoes. There are no issues and the shoe fits great. After hiking 250 miles using them, I will post another review

I have had these shoes for about 3 weeks now and I love everything about them. I have used them golfing, hiking, walking, exercising, working, and everything in between. I haven't really seen how they hold up to water but I'm sure they'll do just fine. Give them a couple days for breakin and you should be good to go. I never want to go back to laced shoes again - the stretch feature is the absolute best! They stay tight all day long and very pleased with how they have held up. Hoping to get a year or two out of these. This is the shoe I wear everyday, all day, and for everything. Also, the customer service was amazing, seriously. I had some issues with a previous stretch-version shoe and they were able to help me out with this replacement pair. Fast response and great service. Thanks!

This is the best Merrill hiking shoe that I've had so far. It's lightweight, comfortable, waterproof, and performs excellent. The grip on these shoes is superior. I do a lot of hiking and these shoe are awesome. I wore them on my roof to install an antenna and I had no slippage on a very steep roof. Because they are waterproof I can use them for Golf as well. Great shoe and I highly recommend it.
