No break in period needed on these boots. Ordered my regular size, wore them with medium weight boot socks and they were perfect. No pinching or rubbing. Nice arch support too, which is super important to me due to a history of plantar fasiciitis. Would definitely recommend these to others.

Rated 2 out of 5 by fromthe802 disappointed in the quality
after researching and trying on many styles of hikers - I chose these Merrells. They FIT GREAT! Super comfortable and I have gone on two nice hikes here in the Rocky Mountains.
Unfortunately, only after having them for one month the toe on the left boot is now separating ... the rubber is pulling away.
I will work with Bean customer service - they are great - but it still puts me in a position to have to take some sort of action. Send these back and wait for a new pair - wear them around the house for a few days and then go hiking. It will be at least two weeks before I can go hiking.
I have been an LL Bean customer for decades and I am a big fan. The quality of these boots is not there.

I ordered these boots specifically looking for reviews that shouted comfortable and the reviews did not lie. My husband and I went camping and it rained most of the first evening. These boots kept my feet dry. They are sized perfectly. I could not be more satisfied with my purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LongtimeHiker The most comfortable footwear I own
These boots felt great the first time I put them on - I could not believe it. They are the most comfortable footwear I own, and I typically wear Teva sandals and clogs, not spike heels. I walked for 90 minutes in total comfort the first time I put them on. I wanted lightweight, waterproof footwear for an 8-day trip of moderate hiking, and I am DELIGHTED with these!

This shoe incorporates the natural motion of your foot. So you don't strike with one particular part of the foot.
Had worn inserts for many years, have been able to wear these shoes without them, much to my delight. Can't seem to take them off...

I was worried about the hiking shoes not being fashionable for this girl but utility is the main objective with hiking shoes. From the moment I put the shoes on, I felt the stability and comfort in the shoes. I love them. As far as the looks, I think they fit the purpose for which I bought them. They make me look like I know what I am doing on the hiking trails.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MotoFoto Finally, just right!
I've searched for boots to replace my 12-year-old light-hikers for months. Ordered and returned several pair. Too rigid or too bulky were the most common flaws. This boot felt "broken-in" the minute I put it on. Played disc golf in these for two hours as the break in period and it felt like I'd worn them for months. Feet stayed dry and not one sore spot. So light-weight and flexible! Excellent boot.
