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.

disappointed - by , Jan 15, 2019
1/ 5 Stars
I have so many pairs of Merrells and love all the rest of them... Tall black boots, winter boots, other hiking boots, tennies... this pair is a huge disappointment... My feet actually hurt after I wear them... and they are SO stiff... Unfortunately, this didn't come to light until after I wore them a full day - so now I can't return them...I tried about 4x, thinking maybe they had to break in. No luck. I am hoping someone else can get some use from them on Facebook marketplace.

Extremely uncomfortable. Not made well. - by , Jun 25, 2019
1/ 5 Stars
These shoes were greatly disappointing. By the middle of my work day my feet hurt worse. The left shoe was not made correctly, there was material folded and bunched at the left toe area. I had high expectations for these shoes as I have Merrell tennis shoes and they are quite comfortable. I called customer service and am unable to return these given I wore them for 1 day. I will more than likely never purchase another Merrill product. Thank you Merrell for a great product and exceptional customer service.

Run small - by , Aug 15, 2018

These shoes were an investment. I took a really long time to research hiking boots and was really excited about these, but they run small. I'm super bummed now and am stuck because I wore them once and can't exchange them. I feel like I wasted so much money :( ughhhhhhh Merrelllllllll

Comfortable but won’t last the season - by , Jul 25, 2019
2/ 5 Stars
I work in field ecology and got these to replace another brand of boots that had lasted me well over three field seasons, as well as multiple backpacking and hiking trips. They are comfortable and were initially waterproof, though that didn’t last very long. Within a month of getting these boots - in which they were used five days a week for low-impact work - I could see that the coating on the fabric was flaking, exposing the fibers. I continued using them because waterproof-ness isn’t the end all be all for me but after less than a continuous year of seasonal work, each boot has become detached from their sole. Big bummer.

As expected the boots were very comfortable. - by , Dec 15, 2017

I have worn Merrill boots for over ten years. They are great in dry weather or rain and snow. The traction is great and keep you from slipping.

No Need to Break In! - by , Apr 14, 2018
4/ 5 Stars
LOVING my new boots. I was anxious about ordering online, as I've ALWAYS gone to the store to try on and order. This is my first pair of Merrell and they did NOT disapoint. I ordered an 8, as that is what I had in my old hiking boots, which these are replacing. When I received the 8, I didn't feel sold on the fit. The exchange process was SUPER easy, so I sent them back and about 2 weeks later the 8.5 arrived and I never want to take these off. They're amazing. I highly recommend. When ordering half size up is my suggestion, but if it's not exactly right exchange them.

returned because too big - by , Oct 25, 2018

I think this shoe might run a bit large. It's a great boot, but it just didn't fit, so I returned it!
