Grade A Boot I own lots of expensive shoes. These boots are as comfortable and as sure footed, as any shoes I own. Don't buy a pair and go for an expedition. They will take a half dozen or more 3 or 4 mile walks before they conform to your foot. These boots are as comfortable as my Swiss kid leather loafers. My pair is older. They were made in Italy. I can't imagine that Merrill would ever allow the quality to slip on the U.S.A. boots, because this is their flag ship product. I wish I had bought two pair.

Very Comfortable Great boots got them in brown. Only took 6 hours of use to break them in. I did use 3 applications of boot dressing which may have helped along the break in process. Wore them in light rain for about 2 hours and my feet did not get wet. My only reason for not giving it 5 stars is they do seem to mark or scuff fairly easily however after using the boot dressing the marks fade away to almost unseen. However if I were to take these on serious hikes I'm sure the marks that would be obtained would not be so easy to buff out with boot dressing.

Great boot for hiking in rough terrain and backpacing with heavy pack loads I gave these boots a 4-star rating rather than a 5-star rating for only one reason: they are heavy boots. They are the heaviest pair of hiking boots that I own. That being said, these boots are outstanding in every other respect. They are comfortable, provide outstanding foot and ankle support in rough terrain, and shed water very well. Merrell says it may take a long time to break in these boots, but I didn't have a problem with that. I treated them with Mink Oil before I wore them the first time, and the Mink Oil softened and conditioned the leather just enough to provide a very fast and easy break-in: it only took me three day hikes to break in the boots to a comfortable level, and I did not experience any blisters or pain during the break-in period. They were slightly uncomfortable during the break-in process but the fourth time I wore them they were very comfortable and they have been comfortable during every hike I have worn them since then. I highly recommend these boots.

Georgia to Maine on a Wilderness In 1992 I through hiker the Appalachian Trail on a boot I purchased from Merrell in 1990. For 155 days these boots kept me going until I saw the sign on the top of Katahdin. Best heavy duty hiking boot made.

Stitching issues. First of all I love the comfort and look of the boots, yet I have owned 2 pair in the last 4 years and both of them have had the toe area come unstitched between the leather and the sole. The first pair was the left boot and the current pair is the right boot that has the stitching issue. Both pairs were made in Italy, per the tag. I mainly wore them for hiking the smoky mountains. I do really love the boots. The comfort is indescribable, just rather disappointed with the issue. Not sure if I will be investing in another pair.
