I wear them at work. Eleven hour shift at a busy hardware store. Typically log 3+ miles during course of my work shift. VERY comfortable.

Wow! Everything I expected...and more! - by , May 22, 2018

Wow! This boot was everything that I had expected...and more! I was drawn in by its great look but after wearing them I discovered that, in this case, beauty is much more than skin deep. The boot was comfortable and fit like a dream right out of the box. It has proven to be tough, durable and a high performer. The sole grips like s spider on a cedar board. The mid top supports my weak ankles and remains flexible and comfortable. This is my second pair of Merrell boots, and I didn't expect that the new ones could be an improvement over the old ones which I thought were perfect.

Perfect Shoe - by , May 09, 2018

As expected, my Merrell's fit perfect, put them on and left for a 3 day trip to North Carolina mountains. No break in, no problem. I have planters facetious and Merrell is the only shoe for me to wear. I average walking 2.5 miles per day on my job and as long as I wear Merrell shoes my feet are good.

This is my third pair of these boots and I'll keep buying them until they're discontinued. I don't ever have to worry about my feet getting wet from stepping in a puddle or walking in rain or through snow.

Great lite boot... - by , Apr 23, 2018

Very comfortable, great traction, waterproof in steady rain. Basically the quality that you would expect from Merrell.

boot fits well but IS NOT WATERPROOF - by , Apr 22, 2018
1/ 5 Stars
Boots fit well, are of average comfort on the trail. Bought the boots for a couple of photo assignments in Africa. Wore them less than six months and they are leaking like a sieve. Very little waterproof protection after three months. Now six months in I might as well not being wearing a boot. Just walking through grass with a heavy dew gets my socks soaking wet.

Disappointing Quality control - by , Apr 18, 2018
2/ 5 Stars
I spent a lot of time in the shop trying out these boots trying to get the best fit I could as I'll need them in June for a 170km alpine hike and I had hoped for many adventures thereafter. I went with Merrells as they fit my feet best for length, felt quite good initially and I had a pair previously that were a pleasure to wear. I wore them a few times at home after work for a couple of evenings to ensure the fit was good then I took them for a hike outside. However, after 2km on the flat I began to notice the area where the boot flexes in the forefoot pressing down on the back of my left foot. I stopped to adjust my laces, and tried everything I could to correct the issue. Frustrated, I turned for home - not without developing a hefty hotspot before making it back home. I was disappointed to say the least as I couldn't figure out why this would happen. I inspected both boots thoroughly and I've noticed a few differences in the material lace loops on the new left boot versus the new right and my old pair. The central, furthest loop towards the toe on the left foot is noticeably shorter than that on the right and the older pair. Additionally the amount of material appears to be less on the left. This seems to pull the material upper and alter the flex point and the creases it forms as I walk. This is an unfortunate quality control issue. If both boots fit like the right boot I'd happily give these merrells five stars but this has been a huge disappointment. The different toe box volumes is visible in the photo attached but note that the right boot (larger toe box) is placed to the left side in the photo.

Great Boots - by , Apr 03, 2018
5/ 5 Stars
These boots are better than I hoped. I normally wear a 2E wide in my other shoes but the customer service rep I spoke with gave me first hand advice saying that the medium should fit fine. Turns out he was right. The toe box is wide enough while the heel fits snug with no slipping. My MOAB boots have the gore tex lining and is so far performing fine. I've only had them for about a month now but I am very satisfied so far.

Best Hiking boot I've ever had - by , Apr 02, 2018
5/ 5 Stars
I bought mine for riding my quads and for hunting. They are extremely light weight and very comfortable. Some say you lose breathing ability with the gore-tex, but with correct socks, I have had zero issues. There was zero break I time needed. The fit was perfect. (12-Wide). I have now ordered my wife a pair. The only thing I would change is height. I would like to see it just 2 inches taller for full ankle support instead of partial. It is the trade off for lighter shoes though. I am extremely satisfied and recommend to all.
