The Mother Of All Boots - by , Jun 16, 2017
5/ 5 Stars
I've been relying on Merrell for years and they never let me down. I had a pair from 3 years ago that I still love and use, but wanted to try the Gortex version of my favorite boot. So far, so dry! :D

Water comes through without any effort at all - by , Jun 09, 2017
1/ 5 Stars
I have worn Merrell all my life and I swear by them, but I have a really tough backpacking trip coming up and decided to get those boots for it. Since it was going to be in very rainy and wet conditions, as soon as I received them I ran the water test - put them under running water in my sink for about 5 sec. The shoes were IMMEDIATELY soaked on the inside. The only place the water touched the boot was at the toes and it went right through. I am extremely disappointed, I thought a well advertised Gore Tex boot would hold up better. So if you buy those you better be hiking in a dry desert. Or just wear flip flops or something since it will provide about the same level of protection. I will be returning those and sticking to my 8 year old merrells.

Very Comfortable on the first wear - by , Mar 07, 2017
5/ 5 Stars
I got these as a warranty exchange, and I couldn't be happier! They fit perfect and needed little breaking in. I wore them for the first time on a 3-4 mile hike. I had a little discomfort in my ankles, but they didn't have much coverage/support by socks or pants. On my second hike, I went 8-9 miles on the Appalachian Trail with no issues! They were very comfortable for the entire hike. They are very breathable. My feet stayed dry and at a comfortable temperature the entire time.
