Great lightweight hiker - by , Jan 03, 2020
5/ 5 Stars
The sole does not look trail worth upon opening the box, but by god does it do well once it’s asked to work. I’ve had it on snow, ice, and mud, and only lost traction going down a steep grade on mud. I could probably jog the trails in these and be comfortable. They are comfortable like a shoe but work like a boot. I have a different setup for mountain hunting (doubt these would hold up), but for general hiking they are lightweight, true to size, and feel great! It is of note I use molded insoles for plantar faciitis and cannot comment on the stock insole. Thanks Merrell!

The Ontario Mid was better than expected - by , Jan 03, 2020
5/ 5 Stars
The Ontario Mid is lighter than expected, the leather quality is top notch, and they are even better looking in person than they appear on the online store. These shoes are very comfortable, I can't wait to actually get out on the trails and give them a test run.

Great boot! - by , Jan 01, 2020
5/ 5 Stars
I found these boots to be true to size, comfortable right out of the box and quite light in weight. Although ice can be hazardous with any footwear, I was more than pleasantly surprised the amount of grip these boots have on ice. In addition to fast service, Merrell packed an extra pair of laces in the box (nice touch).

As usual, they fit great right out of the box. Although I ordered the wrong pair, I'll keep and order the ones I wanted. Cam never have too many Merrells.

I purchased the light brown color ones and put red laces in them. Really a sharp looking shoe. Fits good and comfortable.

Light yet sturdy - by , Dec 08, 2019
5/ 5 Stars
Little tight in the toe box. Other a surprising combination of light weight with a sturdy feel. Next time I’ll get the wide width. Will be a next time as Merrell’s quality has not let my down yet.

High marks all around - by , Oct 12, 2019
5/ 5 Stars
Just completed a section of the Appalachian Trail in these boots. It rained most of the time so the rocks were slippery and ground somewhat muddy in places but the boots gripped well and my feet stayed dry and comfortable. The light weight made the trek much easier than with heavier model Merrell boots I had used before. I would highly recommend these for at least 3 seasons - I haven't yet tried them in winter. I loved the soles on the rocks - no slippage at all. I will get them again when I need to replace my currentl pair.

Poorest possible quality of materials. - by , Oct 10, 2019
1/ 5 Stars
The Merrell Ontario fails in: (my intended use was to be daily, light, non-hiking) 1) Material - Advertised as leather; feels of particle composite (paper); 2) Fit - Sizing and general fit is odd. Fit is never correct when mfg. recommends upsizing....why can't they get it right. Foot bend is not correctly placed. (Upper feels "crunchy"....similar to the box the shoes shipped in. Merrell really needs to up its quality component. Consider the negative impacts/resource drain associated with shipping product round world in addition to distribution from warehouse to customer and return. Build them right the first time.
