Feet stayed nice and dry. Shoes are a little tighter than my standard FST's, must be because of the liner. I would recommend possibly getting a half size bigger. Felt no discomfort wearing them on the trails for the day. Actually had a dry day to try them out, so with the lack of water on the ground and grasses, I decided to walk into the creek by the trail. Amazing, I could feel the temperature of the water cool my feet, and yet, after a count of 10 seconds everything was still dry. I've tried three different products to try to waterproof my normal FST's, nothing worked. I'm so glad I bought these. The only complaint was it took Merrell two days to finalize the order and three days to ship it, not what I'd call express shipping.

Alas, not for me I have been a long time fan of the MOAB, and was interested in the new FST. I got a pair for myself and expected this newer model to be at least at the same comfort level as my previous MOABS. This was not the case. For some reason the shoelaces are shorter in this model which can potentially limit how loose one can tie the shore... The shoe feels a bit lower on the foot, and the laces, even as loose as I would dare have them, were bothering the top. I am returning this pair, and purchasing the same model MOAB I currently use.

Great Potential It should be noted that I am still getting used to these shoes. With that said, the two things that I like about them are the comfort and support. They basically feel as though the traditional Moab Gore-Tex wide (the other pair I have) was pared down a bit into more of a trail running shoe. The shoe, in my opinion, does feel less structured and firm underfoot than the regular Moab, but it is lighter and seemingly more cushioned, while also providing ample support. Love the nylon arch shank that helps support my feet without the need for orthotics. One of the primary issues I feel could be improved is the heel cup. I'm guessing Merrell was looking to lighten up the classic Moab with this shoe, reducing materials and such. One area this seems to have come in is the heel. Put simply, I wish the heel cup were deeper. It feels as though the cup doesn't come up high enough and doesn't basically, well, cup, the rear of the heel. If it came up higher and perhaps arched a bit more inward against the back of the heel, there wouldn't be the heel slippage I'm noticing. Mind you, I tried on 6 variations of the shoe, 3 different sizes in 2 different widths and the issue with the heel slippage was present in all of them. It's not awful to the point where I can't wear them but I have to cinch them up more tightly than I would prefer to minimize the issue. I find myself drawn to my other light hikers from another company, if I don't need the waterproofing of this pair. As I wrote in my review of the ventilated pair, one of the things I like about these is that the heel feels more stable than the classic Moab, having what seems to be a wider base. Even with the wide version of the classic Moab, the bottom of the heel cup doesn’t really feel adequately supported on the outside. I have a neutral gait and my feet naturally roll out rather than inward. As such, it feels as though my heel is spilling over the edge of the shoe on the outside. Ever so slightly, but noticeable, particularly for a hiking shoe. If you pick up the classic Moab and look at the heel from the rear, the shape of the sole/cushion is somewhat trapezoidal and the outside of the heel appears to kind of bulb out from that. e.g., The heel isn’t sitting down in the sole, it’s kind of sitting atop it without lateral support on the outside. When I saw these shoes at REI, I specifically examined the heel and it looked a bit more boxy, as if the heel would be better supported. Thankfully, this was the case when I tried them on and it’s a big reason I decided to pick them up. So far, I do like these more than the classic Moab Gore-Tex wides that I have. Merrell and other companies seem to have moved beyond the fad of indicating the heel to toe drop measurement in their shoes, but these seem to have less of a drop than the classic Moab, which for me is great and provides a more natural gait. I did try the ventilated pair of these and found the fabric to chafe against my big toe when stepping. The TPU molding that runs over the big toe would basically reinforce the fabric folding downward toward the toe during the step. Given the waffle-like pattern of the fabric, the subtle ridges and valleys of the fabric basically add to the noted issues and made the abrasion of the fabric against the skin more noticeable. It didn't help that the fold was basically rubbing against the transition between the toenail and skin. Having been able to wear the WP ones for a bit, this is not an issue. I believe the inclusion of the waterproof liner and the (non-waffled) fabric liner that sits against the foot basically mitigate the issues experienced with the ventilated version. With that said, having reviewed a number of reviews with lower ratings for this WP version (regular and wide widths), there might be some concerns with the water proofing failing around the toes, which might correlate with the issues noted above.

Overall a good hiking shoe This is a durable, waterproof shoe, but it's not as comfortable as expected.
