Good shoe but not waterproof. - by , May 13, 2020
2/ 5 Stars
I’ve been wearing these daily for two months. I like the look and the athletic feel of them. These are narrower than most shoes. If you foot is on the wide side, definitely go with the wide width. The reason for two stars is because of the claim that they’re waterproof. That’s one of the main reasons I bought this shoe. I take my dog for a walk most mornings on the trails and the grass is usually wet. If I wear these, my socks get soaked and I have to let the shoes dry the rest of the day before I can wear them again. They are NOT waterproof.

Nice midsize boot - by , Mar 05, 2020

The shoe is comfortable and is very breathable I like the way it fits, and I like the color. I also like the way it supports my feet.

Awesome boot - by , Mar 02, 2020

I’m use to wearing beat up sneakers in the woods but needed something more for when I’m out snowshoeing which is a new hobby. These fit perfectly, hold my foot in all the right “sweet spots” and are very functional for all my outdoor uses.

Great fit but poor materials or design lead to premature wear - by , Dec 03, 2019
1/ 5 Stars
Wanted to give these boots a 5 star review. When I put them on, fit like a glove and were the most comfortable hiking shoe I have owned in decades. Very comfortable to hike long distances, decent amount of water resistance, and a very sure gripping sole. Had I reviewed right away, that would be it. However, after only 6 months there are a couple of major issues. The stitching on the sides by the ball of the foot is coming undone. This is where the foot and boot bend as you are walking. The other issue is the orange rubber strip in the middle of the sole is separating from the black rubber of the rest of the sole. This is happening in multiple places on each foot. It appears that the two different color rubbers are made in two pieces and then bonded together. Hower the process, the rubber is coming apart. I have owned much cheaper brands of hiking shoes in the past and have had similar issues with stitching and wear, but that was after many years of use. Very disappointed and not sure I will shop Merrell in the future. Even with much less expensive shoes I have had much better success with materials holding up.

Order a size up - by , Oct 25, 2019

I like the shoe right out of the box, but was way too small. Normally wear a size 12 and these were about a full size too small. Recommend ordering a size up from your usual footwear

Very comfortable, not worth while - by , Oct 16, 2019
2/ 5 Stars
Only six days into using these shoes the bottoms are already falling apart. Its hard to justify my continuing of buying merrell shoes as they only last 3-4 months before completely worthless. I use these shoes for work ( not in extremely harsh conditions) and hoped they would last longer. The shoe itself is extremely comfortable and looks great. Shame the quality isn’t there. Sorry Merrell.

Not Waterproof, comfortable bit about a size smaller the labeled - by , Oct 02, 2019
1/ 5 Stars
Boots fit about a size smaller then labeled. Still comfortable and can wear them all day bit cant wear large warm socks like I planned. Second issue is these boots are not waterproof. My feet got wet aalking through wet grass and I could feel the water entering the boots when I walked through about 1 to 2 inches of water. Very disappointed with the lack of waterproofing.
