MOAB Killers - by , Jun 04, 2020
5/ 5 Stars
I was looking for a breathable, water resistant boot, and these delivered hardcore. Super flexible, no break-in time, and a magical midsole. My Moab 2's are definitely a winter only boot from here on out, since they can't breath as well as these 85's.

Foam cushion tearing along the sides - by , May 27, 2020
2/ 5 Stars
I was excited when I got my shoes. The fit was nice and the cushion added a plush. I decided to take them out for a spin on the Reflection Canyon Hike in Escalante. To make a long story short, the shoe does well on regular groomed hiking trails. Unfortunately, on rock face surfaces and up/down heavy dirt and rock trails the foam can scrape and tear easily. I wish I had a better review, but my shoe is peeling along the outer sides after one round trip hike and I can see that this shoe won't last more than 3-4 overnight hikes. Not the best shoe in my opinion. I also do own the Moab 2 Mid Ventilator shoe which is has standed the test of time.

Great for a day in the woods - by , May 15, 2020
5/ 5 Stars
This boot is comfortable for a full day hiking through the woods. Fits pretty true to size and Being waterproof allows you to go through wet places without a worry of getting the dreaded wet foot. Overall this boot is great. The only knock I have is the laces didn’t grab the eyelets to tighten the boot like I wanted when first wearing them. But after a couple uses they start to hold better. Overall would recommend to anyone looking for an affordable waterproof boot.

Thank you for your recommendation, Steve!

Love these boots - by , May 14, 2020
5/ 5 Stars
These boots are supportive, lightweight and extremely comfortable. I also like their appearance, which is why they haven't been exposed to moisture yet. I would say these run a little small which means I don't have to wear heavy socks in warmer weather.

Very comfortable shoes - by , May 13, 2020

The first time I put my Merrell Ontario's on it felt like I was walking on clouds. The most comfortable shoes I ever bought.

Great boot for discing in Michigan - by , May 10, 2020
5/ 5 Stars
Primarily used for playing disc golf. Already tried and tested in the Michigan spring weather which means MUD. The waterproof feature keeps me dry but my feet do not get too hot like boots I have owned in the past. Finally, i appreciate the higher style that supports my ankles. Really happy with this purchase!!

Grest Product So Far - by , May 06, 2020
4/ 5 Stars
Excellent waterproof mid boot. Size was dead on and comfort is well above average. What really sets these apart from other mid rise boots is the weight. They are feather light compared to other bulkier models. You certainly can feel the ground and rocks below you, and that's the only reason for 4 stars. The sole is made of such light weight and soft rubber, I am uncertain of the longevity of the comfort. So far so good though! I got them at sale price and am very satisfied. Waterproof for sure which makes them a bit less breathable. They broke in after about 5 miles, which was very quick. I certainly would recommend if you are a weekend hiker like me.
