What happened? I have 4 pair of Chameleons and love them...soo...I bought a pair of the new black ones; they look great. I had to take them back due to the narrow fit! My older chameleons fit great, nice wide toe box and in step....not the new ones though....instep and toe box are horrible. I was fortunate that the store let me return them....Merrell needs a redesign on the width....I really like the new look and would buy multiple pairs of them if they were wider (both instep and toe box).

Poor sizing I have exclusively worn Chameleons for years of successful hiking, usually keeping at least 2 or 3 pairs ready. Was very unhappy to see the model discontinued. Just bought a pair of the new reissued product on line.. Unlike all the previous versions, this new Chameleon is much tighter in the toe box. Instead of having a lot of room for hiking sox (like all the previous models), this version is noticeably and uncomfortably too narrow in the forefoot. Unless you're intending to issue a special wider version for each size, I think you've made a bad decision and lost a loyal customer. I will be taking them and searching for a different brand.

Odd Fit and Uncomfortable For years I've heard others that I work with gush over Merrell's. Well I figured it was time time give them a try, especially since my pair of ~decade old (The) North Face boots were finally starting to fall apart. I had very high hopes for these considering everything I had always heard. Unfortunately, I was very disappointed. The Chameleon 7's have a very weird fit and were just plain uncomfortable. The toe box is very narrow and my toes were cramped even with just a single pair of thin socks on, BUT at the same time I felt like I was going to 'step out of the shoe' with every step. They felt like they were just too shallow around the heel and ankle. Fortunately Amazon has a very generous return policy and I can send them back for a refund. I am going to try a different model(MOAB 2 GoreTex) and give Merrell a second chance, because I don't think all of the people that say they are great shoes are neccesarily wrong, but I do think that this particular model is not good.

Love these waterproof shoes! My husband bought a pair of Merrell hiking shoes this past fall and loved them so much he wears them almost everyday but they are not waterproof and we felt that was important for some activities we have planned so I ordered this pair. He has worn several times and he says they are comfy and the fit is perfect!

I think this is going to be a good shoe. I definitely had to go up one half size. I guess I have tried every Chameleon model from the beginning. Have always worn 10 1/2, but this time had to move up to 11. This model seems to be improved over the previous one. Weight is good and the toe box is a little bit wider. One reason these work for me is that I have very narrow feet. Have not been able to evaluate the S-Dry yet. Have always wondered why Merrell when selling a shoe of this price could not just use a Gore-Tex liner other than the cost which is obvious. So far I am enjoying this model.
