I have purchased three pairs. Two for sons and one for me. Purchased around 1990 to 1993. Have resoled mine two or three times. They are great. However, since the wides are no longer made I cannot buy anymore Wilderness boots. I don't understand why Merrell discontinued widths and am very disappointed.

This has been the best for a long time, but alas, as you can see from the web site, they've stopped making them in widths! And since people don't all have feet that differ only in length, my wife (narrow) and I (wide) can't wear them any longer. Thus only 3 stars rather than 5.

Without a doubt the best pair of backpacking boots that I have ever owned. These boots are rugged, old school hiking boots. After a couple weeks break in period on mostly level ground, I have been very pleased with performance, support and quality.

I am not a hike. I am an active farmer/ carpenter. I owned a pair of Merrill hikers 20 years ago, and I hoped these new hikers would be as comfortable. These boots give me the support I( need to be a good worker. The fit is excellent. The comfort is sublime. Even the breakin period was comfortable. These boots are easily the best I've ever owned. I'm considering buying another pair to assure years of pleasure. Outstanding! I'm a 62 year old cynic, that has found Avalon.

I love these old-school hiking boots. Good quality and good comfort. They are holding up pretty well after a couple years.

Hiking, walking in mud and snow etc. I wear them anytime I want something more heavy-duty than the Chameleons or Jungle Mocs.
