These shoes are top quality as expected from Merrell. They fit as expected. I checked an older pair I have and ordered the same size online which worked out great. The color is lighter than I expected based on the online image though. I would have preferred darker for work. No test for waterproofing yet as I have only had them for a week.

This is my son's first pair of hiking boots and I was worried he would find them too difficult to walk in and uncomfortable. The exact opposite has been his experience! He says they are very comfortable and he wears them all the time. He has even climbed trees in them! Amazing!
The big test will be how long they stand up to a young boy's activities! Time will tell and I will come back to report.
Meanwhile, I highly recommend these. They are attractive and comfortable. The fit is, also, right on.

Rated 3 out of 5 by lowercase1 comfortable, wore quickly
at $175, merrill boots don't come cheap, but that's why you shop at beans. these boots are comfortable, fit well, and did their job for a period. these boots lasted me one summer and i am bringing them back due to wear. the back of the boot features rubber that wraps around to the sides(which ripped within a day or two). the front rubber seal from a proclaimed waterproof boot is beginning to peel, allowing water to get in.

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.
