Rated 5 out of 5 by grandmatoeight Great fit
Purchased these shoes for my son, when he first put them on he thought the shoe was too high in the arch but after reading the other reviews he wore them for just one evening and they seemed to mold to his feet, he says they are the most comfortable shoes he has. He always buys LLbean shoes as he says they are the best.

Rated 3 out of 5 wasn't for me
I thought these shoes looked pretty good when I saw them in the store. I ended up ordering them online to replace my recently fallen hiking boots. I use my boots for day hikes, working outside, and weekend camping trips. After wearing these around the house for an hour it became clear that they are mostly for casual wear. The shoes makes you feel set back and flatfooted, similar to a walking shoe. The tread was sort of overboard, and the exaggerated ripples ended up getting caught on everything. I ended up bringing them back and intend to get a dedicated hiking shoe.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ybill Very comfortable shoe
Other Merrell shoes I have purchased fit like a glove right out of the box. When I first put these on they felt a little tight an thought I might have to exchange for a larger size, That was not the case as after wearing for an hour they fit great. The Annex is now my favorite shoe to wear. Even the color is low key but distinctive. Very happy with my purchase.

Rated 3 out of 5 by MikeRe One thing missing
These boots are listed as "waterproof Gor-Tex" boots. I just received mine and nowhere on these boots is anything mentioned about waterproof or Gor-Tex. Boots looked great and fit well but if these boots were truly waterproof then Merrell would make sure that was on the shoe itself. Use your own judgment.

Rated 3 out of 5 by MikeRe One important thing missing
Nowhere on the boots does it say waterproof or Gore-Tex. unacceptable. We pay too much for Gore-Tex to have any uncertainty about whether or not a specific pair of boots are in fact waterproof. I sent them back immediately. They did look good and were true to fit. Felt good out of the box too. But important info like this should be on the product as well as in the catalog text.
