I have a pair of Phaser's and love them. I have narrow feet and they fit perfectly - med. to thick socks. I have a 2 other pair of Merrell's that have thinner soles that I've about stopped wearing because these are so comfortable. They have survived hiking in East Texas swamps and oil from tractors. I need a new pair for Saturday night dates with my wife.

I got these boots as a gift in 2008 and have only worn them a hand full of times since then - 10 max. They worked well the few times I wore them in the snow at school in eastern Washington. I haven't had the chance to wear them for a while because I moved to Portland, but finally was able to break them out for a 6 day hunting trip in eastern Oregon this past November. The first day we were an hour into an all day hunt and I noticed my toes were getting wet. It was not fun having wet feet for the rest of the day. I ended up rubbing some conditioning gel on some $20 Walmart boots and wore them the rest of the trip with no problems, except they weren't insulated so my feet were really cold. I was going to spray down the Phaser Peak boots with waterproofing but I noticed the cause of the leak was a seam failure in the front where the rubber bottom meets the black part of the sole. Unfortunately I don't have my receipt so I can't take them back, but I'd urge whoever buys these to keep your receipt!

Merrell's Reply:

We recommend wearing your footwear often to keep it in the best conditions. Unworn footwear can break down even if still in the box. We will be in touch with you soon to see how we can help.

  • My Favorite Do-it-All Boot

I actually got a pair of these boots used from one of my favorite outdoor retailers. I have been wearing them for over 3 years now and still love them. These boots are comfortable all day whether you're doing extended backpacking, snowshoeing (with gaiters), day hikes, or just walking around town. They are not as "clunky" as many boots. I have been treating them with a wax based leather treatment which has worked very well. The leather is starting to crack after 3 years of fairly heavy use. All-in-all I am very impressed with this boot and would recommend it to someone looking for a solid boot. A always, you should try them on and walk around in them for a good while. Try different lacing tensions on different sections of the tongue of the boot. Just make sure your feet like them because we all have funny shaped feet.

I literally took the boots right out of the box and wore them on a 2 day, 40 mile trip up to the summit of Mauna Loa (13,677') and back. The whole trip was over lava of differing degrees of size, and sharpness ! Not a hint of any foot hot spots or discomfort the whole way. Given the nature of the terrain, they did take a bit of a beating, but that was to be expected. Definitely the best out of the box boot.
