Bought for my wife after I bought a men's pair. Both of us found the boots comfortable out of the box. My wife has quite a wide forefoot and a bunion on one foot, but no problems so far. I bought mine after having to give up walking for a while because I developed an issue with my heel rubbing in my (well-known major brand name) leather boots meaning I had to pre-pad or put Compeed on after about a mile on the trail. I spent ages travelling to specialists (Alt-Berg/George Fisher) trying to get a solution. Different lacing, socks, insoles did not help. I tried all the boots I could in store but no one could tell me whether or not I'd be OK with them.
Rather than wasting a pot of cash on boots like that, I went for these as they were a little bit less of a financial disaster if they were no good. Glad I did as I've had no problem with the heel in these.
We've just got back from a few days in the Lakes where we used them everyday for moderate walks over mixed ground including some rocky sections. Did a great job. I developed a slight pressure on one little toe towards the end of an 8 mile walk on which I'd done some sections as fast as I could over all terrains. I'd say that's not bad at all.
My wife mentioned some damp feeling on one boot after crossing a shallow stream, but we're not sure yet if there was any leak of if this was just the damp cold feeling you can get with most Goretex when the outer gets wetted out. Being a fabric/mesh I suppose this is more likely to happen quicker than a well-treated leather. There doesn't seem to be any kind of DWR on the outer on these.
But there's always the Gore-tex guarantee to lean on if needed. We both found the soles made crossing rocky sections quite comfortable, easy and fast. So far so good - will update if any issues (I do actually update my reviews if things change ratehr than just say it :-) ).
It was in that vein that I undertook my usual days of research and bought what I thought would be the best pair of Merrell ladies walking boots available outside of specialist snow, ice & crampon range ie professional or winter boots.
These boots appeared to tick all the boxes but after day 1 of her wearing them on a short 10km trial my good lady wife simply said, “ These are the best pair of boots I have ever put on my feet. I love them. I will never buy anything else ever again!”
So after much reading of reviews I decided to buy these. Although I am an average every day person and actually would never dream of paying almost 90 quid on some shoes for myself. I decided to bite the bullet. I walk 4-5 miles daily with my dogs and wanted something to keep my feet dry and comfortable. After reading all the reviews I got half a size above my usual size 5. Also purchased some waterproof spray.
I used these the very next day they arrived and have been amazed. They are very comfortable and my feet are wider than normal. I used the waterproof spray so dont actually know if they are waterproof but my feet have been bone dry. I've not had a single solitary blister and have worn these almost daily since I got them. I actually doubt i will buy another make now. So its 5***** from me
I have long, narrow feet, so needed a size up from my usual shoe size and this meant no bruised toes. During the rainy part of the trek, my feet stayed dry and they felt light to wear. I'd totally recommend these boots for comfort, waterproofing and grip and they're a great choice if you don't have time to break them in.
