Rated 4 out of 5 by NCNative0220 Great Hiking Shoe
I read the earlier reviews about the short length of this show. I'm glad I did. I bought a size larger and they fit very well.
They are light weight and ready to wear. No "breaking in" necessary.
This is the first time I've purchased a mid-cut boot and I'm having to get used to it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by citygrrl sturdy, beautiful boots run short
These boots came today and were beautiful. I ordered 1/2 size up from 8 1/2 to 9 because Merrell's always seem to run small, but that wasn't enough. My toes were still jammed too close to the front. I would have exchanged them for a 9 1/2, but the tops of the boots rubbed my ankles in a very irritating way. I could foresee a lot of painful ankle rubbing in the future, so I had to return them. Now I'm wondering if it's safe to order only 1//2 size up on other Merrell boots, especially the insulated ones. I'll try going one whole size up the next time. This is the worst part of shopping for shoes without being able to try them on before purchasing .

Rated 5 out of 5 by Floridia88 Great fit and warm!
I usually wear 6.and 1/2 wide shoe. Usually cannot find boots in half sizes or wide size. The size 7 fit great! The shoes are very warm. I wore them all day in 33 degrees Fahrenheit weather with one pair of socks. Highly recommending these boots. It you wear 1/2 size, go up the next size. Did not require breaking in either.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jeepsie Great pair of boots that fit!!
I was delighted when I saw these boots for sale in the catalogue. I bought a pair like them a few years ago that finally just wore out after taking me on hikes around the US and along Hadrian's Wall in northern England last fall. I also wore them with my snowshoes and they kept my feet nice and dry.
I put this pair on and went off on my daily three mile walk and they were comfortable from the get go. I expect to wear them snowshoeing as well when the snow comes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by AdirondackChris Love Them !
Love these snowshoes. I purchased a full size larger than my sneakers. They fit both with a heavy sock and thick hiking socks. They did not require any break-in. They were comfortable right out of the box. They are very warm both while shoveling snow and walking the dog. I also slipped into a 4 inch puddle while hiking and my foot remained dry. I highly recommend these snowshoes!

Rated 5 out of 5 by FLshopper2014 Great new boots
This is my first new pair of boots in 20 years. I have trouble with fit so waited until I could actually visit the store to purchase them. They run a little short so I bought a half-size larger. I wore them while walking on rocks, trails. and roads in Maine and am very satisfied. They are lightweight, comfortable and did not require breaking in. I am very pleased and look forward to many years of wear from them.
