Boots are comfortable and have worn well. Good in cold weather. But from day one they were not water proof, walking thru dew grass they would become soaked in a matter of minutes.
For a dry area they are a great boot, but look out if you need them in any wet areas.

Maybe it is just me but I found these boots to be terribly uncomfortable. They felt good initially, but after hiking a while they dug into the upper sides of my ankles something fierce. Poor fit for me. They're going back.

At work--outside, checking on a water main repair in the rain--they are waterPROOF. At home, they hold me up, no matter whether I'm mountain biking, walking, or working in the garden. Can't be beat. I've bought other Merrell models, and I've tried on other brands, but I haven't bought anything but Merrells for 20 years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by bootloverjohn boots are great!!!
After receiving the second pair of boots (I ordered the wrong size) I am more than satisfied. They look good and feel very comfortable. The only thing I would mention is that they are fairly heavy. But for a waterproof boot with a thick sole, not bad at all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by terracegirl great, waterproof hiking boots.
So far on short hikes, excellent. Can't feel stones through the soles and they "stick" to rock like gecko feet. They really are waterproof especially with the 1 inch of rubber before you reach the leather and the rubber tips. Comfortable, but hard to dance in. Since they are somewhat narrow consider a 1/2 size larger.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Dave314 Great until you hit water
Boots are comfortable and I liked them a lot until this past weekend on a backpack trip when I got in to some wet terrain. The boots quickly got saturated and became awful to wear. It then got progressively worse to the point where walking through a shallow puddle caused water to flood in a and drain out of the boot in large volumes. I would not at all call them waterproof. otherwise though, a fine shoe.

Rated 4 out of 5 by TooManyToys High arch meant they did not fit me
These fit my narrow foot, but the arch was too high. I own three versions of the Merrill Ventilators and they fit fine. They obviously use a different last for these boots.
