Rated 4 out of 5 by Cm15 Merrell Hike shoes
This is my second pair of these shoes, they are very comfortable and I love them. No break in needed. Out of the box and ready to wear. The only issue that I did have was that the plastic toe piece on my first pair pulled away and ripped the fabric, LLbean was great and allowed me to return them, and I am hoping that that was just a fluke occurrence. I loved them so much I was willing to try again.

Rated 3 out of 5 by LDMom Hurts the top of my feet bone
I wore these shoes inside my house for about 2 hours and it started to hurt the top of my feet bones. I'm returning it and trying another kind. I'm a 6.5 and ordered a 7 and this was a little too big but I don't think it would have made a difference. It's the way it was made. Too bulky on the top part.

Rated 4 out of 5 by pondish Love these!
Light weight but sturdy. Breathable but don't get soaked in wet grass. Attractive, not garish. These are my 2nd pair after wearing out the first pair I bought in a Bean store a couple of years ago. I was happy to find this same style was still available. I got them a half size larger this time and they are slightly too long but fine - better than slightly too short as the first pair was.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Redwoodturtle SO DISAPPOINTED
Love Merrell shoes, can fit my narrow foot most of the time in a med in this brand but this time they ran true to med and foot slipped with heavy cotton sock. Could not find another low top hiker so have to return rather than exchange. Great quality.

This is an outstanding shoe. True to size for me. My foot is on the narrow side. Wore the day I got them for two mile walk. No break in time necessary. Love Merrells. My size is 8 1/2 or 39. Oh, they're also good looking, more of an iron gray than olive.

Rated 5 out of 5 by UVMshopper comfortable, sturdy and great color
My new hiking boots look better in "real life". They fit perfectly, are suitable for walking, hiking and fitting into my snowshoes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by formersouthernmainah nice hiking shoe
Really nice hiking shoe. Seems very durable. I usually wear 7 or 7.5 for all my shoes but decided to order an 8 based on other reviews. They fit perfectly with lighter, summer socks with plenty of room for heavier socks come fall.
These shoes may be slightly narrow- but I have long/narrow feet so this is actually a plus for me, I'm not a fan of shoes that are too wide.
I love Merrill shoes and these are no different. The sole is solid but flexible enough to not be clunky. The colors are great too- the pop of pink is a great touch!

can not wear heavy socks with this shoe, wish it came in a wider width, fit is too tight, even with lighter socks.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Sazzia Great dayhiker but order a size up...
I'm a size 8 (US) in all regular shoes, but I'm familiar with Merrell and knew to order a half-size up since the brand typically runs a little small. Even ordering an 8.5 I've run into problems in the toebox, so I am returning for a size 9. Otherwise the shoe is terrific - excellent grip and stability, no blisters and is super comfortable...once you figure out the right size for your feet.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Avidhiker29 Broke first day of my honeymoon.
Have worn this particular shoe in the past with no problems. However, bought this pair to hike in Yosemite on my honeymoon and they broke the second day wearing them. The islet broke off and therefore the laces could not be tied properly. Very disappointed.
