Performance
Amazing comfort and performance, Questionable durability - by , Aug 16, 2019
3/ 5 Stars
I purchased the MQM Ace's roughly 2 months ago... in that time I have taken them on 5 14er's in Colorado and 1 other 5 mile run. To begin, let me say that these are the most comfortable shoes I have ever used in the back country, you don't feel any rocks under your feet, they have great grip on the dirt as well as on rock and they breathe really well so your feet don't get too sweaty. The only problem I have with this pair of Merrell's is the durability. These shoes currently have about 40 miles on them, with roughly 30 of those miles on dirt trail and the other 10 being on rockier terrain. After 40 miles I would say these shoes probably have another 2 or 3 hikes left in them before they need to be replaced. Now I am 6'9" and about 230 lbs so maybe I am just putting too much weight and abuse on the shoes, but at this price point I hope to get more than 7 or 8 hikes out of a pair. The largest issues I am having is with the rubber on the front toe box, it began pulling away from the shoe itself by the end of my first hike with the shoes, roughly 10 miles... I can probably get away with super glue for now but again who wants to super glue a pair of shoes that cost over $100. Comfort wise, you cannot beat these shoes... Although they perform extremely well, maybe they just weren't designed for the abuse that I am putting them through.

I have two other pairs of boots for the winter, and I am so happy with them. I have to have a supportive shoe and when I spoke to a rep, she recommended the MQM Ace. When I received them the fit was great and so comfortable. Great choice!. I will be getting another pair soon. Merrell is quality made product and well worth it.

Most comfortable Merrell shoes I’ve worn. Right out of the box they fit and feel great. Light weight with plenty of support. Ordered a second pair.

Good but not great - by , Aug 08, 2019
4/ 5 Stars
Good enough that I’ll keep them but not as good as the Terramorphs I also bought. I always wear a 10.5 Merrell shoe and these are longer than any other Merrell I’ve bought. Width is good though. I don’t like it when shoes come up high on my ankle either and these could be a little lower for my liking but not as bad as some. The sole is great and insole is just right. Arch support is just right (I find some shoes way overdue the arch support). These will make a great hybrid hiker/runner and good for hot summer days as they breath well.

MQM Ace best shoes ever - by , Aug 08, 2019
5/ 5 Stars
I am amazed at how good these shoes fit and feel. They are light, supportive and stable. Great for hiking and gym use. They are very well made and good-looking. I've had these for a month or so and plan to buy another pair. I just wish there were more color choices. They are great for casual wear also. You need to buy these shoes! Love them!

This is a comfortable, lightweight shoe that is great for hiking. - by , Jul 09, 2019

I bought these shoes online direct from Merrell. They fit as expected based upon previous Merrell’s that I have owned. So far, I have worn them on a ten mile hike that involved numerous river crossings. The shoes performed admirably, we’re comfortable when wet, and dried quickly.

I’ve been wearing Merrell shoes for 20+ yrs. and never had issues with fit or function. I tend to buy a pair and once I decide I really like them, I buy a second pair to put away in the closet so I have them when the first pair is worn out (typically years). In this case, I also bought a second pair. The shoes are lite and allow air flow through the material which was unexpected but, it keeps my feet cooler than all my other sneakers. I look forward to wearing these out!

I feel like they're a little on the expensive side, but that being said I enjoy the way they feel and the way they fit.
