Is it non slip or not - by , Jan 31, 2020
3/ 5 Stars
product clearly labeled as Merrel select grip on bottom but nothing listed in description. Just order a pair and I need to know before I can wear them safely. Mens Ridgepass mid boot are labeled same way but list it as oil and slip resistant M Select Grip 2 in description and I have worn those and know for a fact they are non slip.

So far so good! - by , Dec 29, 2019

Boot fit perfectly right off the bat. I’ve been wearing Merrells for over 10 years now and I have not been disappointed. I’ve had a pair of hikers for 8 years but have recently lost 120lbs and figured I should get some new ones that fit better. Even though my old ones didn’t have any rips or tears in them at all. Very nice boot.

Comfortable and light - by , Dec 10, 2019
5/ 5 Stars
Disclaimer, I've put in my high arch inserts, making these all-day-don't-want-to-take-off comfortable, but even before the insert, they were very nice. The boots are incredibly light, but feel well built (for the price). The toe box is nice and open, but not so wide that a slim foot will feel loose. These boots were made for walking and hiking for sure. They're stylish. They dry relatively quickly. Merrell's got a new regular customer.

comfortable, but began to come apart - by , Aug 30, 2019
3/ 5 Stars
I bought these and immediately loved them. Great comfort & kept my feet really warm. I wore them on and off over 4 months in south america, a bunch of different terrains and then -- the sides on both feet began to come apart from the sole, only 4 month of wear and they still looked like semi new shoes but were falling apart? they were not waterproof anymore and I was disappointed. they should at least last a year or two.

Great boot but, every step squeaks and after 10 min it's quite annoying.

Not Waterproof - by , Jul 11, 2019
2/ 5 Stars
I bought the women"s forestbound and found them to be very comfortable but not at all waterproof. My first day hike in them was in the snow, on a packed trail and my boots were soaked through by the end. On a positive note, my feet were warm!

leakiest shoes I ever owned - by , Jan 23, 2019
1/ 5 Stars
bought these for the rainy winter in Vancouver BC - as I needed a pair of warm, rainproof boots to walk to work and back. But even in a 15 minute walk to the train station these boots are soaked and your socks will have wet spots in multiple areas. I'm actually surprised how a boot like this can let this much water in. A huge disappointment.
