5.0 out of 5 stars Great boots so far (his and hers)
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 17 September 2018
[Update Jan 2021]

I know this review is getting a bit long to read, but it's based on several years of use by myself and my wife of these boots and hopefully helpful for what is an important and relatively costly purchase. Thx.

Just wanted to add that whilst these boots are great in most conditions, they do not have a very deep cut sole. It's good quality but in muddy conditions can clog quickly. Had this yesterday on a muddy chalky walk where I ended up tumbling a couple of times. I'm usually steady on my feet and to be fair I don't know that boots with a deeper cut sole would have been any better. There were lots of marks on the track where others were having the same issue.

Would also like to comment on the reviews that say these are not waterproof. I can say categorically after years wearing them and walking through streams, that they ARE.

If someone gets a pair that are not, just get them replaced. It's a fault with that pair not the design or materials. I had a pair replaced by Merrell after they split (I think on a rock) and this damaged the Goretex.

It's also worth saying that waterproof boots (or clothes) can still feel wet. If the outer is soaking wet you'll still feel some cold and damp even if no water has actually gotten in. It can feel like socks are damp (my wife notices more than me).

Try with a piece of tissue inside to check whether they are actually leaking or not. We only notice this if wading or walking though long wet grass (i.e. not really in rain).

It's still worth having because a) it's a short damp feeling and b) the outer will dry out quicker than if the inner and your stock was soaked.

[Update November 2021]

My wife has continued to use these boots for our walks near home and last year for a few months in France (waterproofing not really required for either). We’ve just got back from a week in the Lakes where we did a lot of walking on flooded paths, bogs and the usual quite stony terrain etc. Both her and my boots stayed dry throughout (we do usually wear waterproof gaiters covering part of the upper), but that’s to protect trousers from mud rather than because the boots need it. Both her and my boots remain comfortable and are mostly holding up well (soles linings etc). My wife uses custom insoles, but I have the standard Merrell in (despite having used more supportive insoles in other boots).

The only additional negative I’ll add is that the trim on the uppers (I.e the leather-look strappy bits over the mesh) has not held up well. The upper surface has just flaked and peeled off on hers. Seems to happen when cleaning (even if just sprayed with a hose). Unsightly, but does not affect performance.

[Update: Dec 2018. Were managing to get at least one walk in a week since buying these averaging 6-9 miles now. Both of us find the boots supremely comfortable. My wife had some minor pressure under one toe on an 11 mile walk, but nothing major. We've not been out in downpours but wet grass and the odd stream splash has not been an issue. I would add to my review below that the soles are good and grippy in most conditions, but not as stiff as a heavier boot, so you will feel a rocky surface through them slightly. Not a problem, just trying to give a better impression of what these are. We have not done any walking with more than a day sack so far and only short easy scrambles.]

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 :-) ).

4.0 out of 5 stars Great for wide feet
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 8 October 2020
I have the worlds most difficult feet. They are wiiiiiiide, and flat with narrow heels. A bit like a duck. So good walking shoes are not easy to come by. I hadn't tried Merrel before having tried some on a few times with no luck. But this time I was after a lighter weight pair of walking boots that i could wear around town but also get away with a major hike in fair conditions. They aren't waterproof, but are really good boots. Very comfy. I ummed and arred over the fitting and went for a half size bigger in the end. I'm glad i did. Love them, would buy again. Happy for them to wear out at this price. EDIT: I'm adding this extra note after purchasing a second pair. They don't last very long so don't pay too much for them. And they are only waterproof a bit at the start, but wear soon looses this (even with waterproofing and good treatment). I bought a second pair as i find it hard to get boots that fit well and they are good, but one of the lace loops broke after just a couple of months (Amazon refunded some of the cost, thanks) so be aware of poor manufacturing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredibly comfortable. Order half a size up.
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 18 January 2021
These are great! I took on board the previous reviews and ordered a half size up. I'm glad I did; it leaves me with about a centimetre from my big toe to the end of the boot. I also need to wear wider fitting footwear (bunion unfortunately) and these are perfect.

These boots have been amazingly comfortable from the minute I put them on. I've been able to wear them out on several muddy dog walks with having to 'wear them in' first. They were a little tight around the back of the ankle to start with (I seem to get this with all boots that come up and over my ankle), but that only lasted a few minutes.

The tread is great; I feel safe in them (very wet and muddy ground is quite slippery!). I just rinse the bottom of them with the hose when I get home as its much easier than letting the mud dry and then getting to clean it off. Occasionally when doing this I can feel cold where the water splashes on the top of the boot, but so far my feet haven't gotten wet.

All in all, I'm so pleased. They are bloody brilliant, really comfy and do exactly what I wanted them to do.
