Rated 5 out of 5 by AvidHikerandCamper Heed the warning about sizing
My last pair of Merrell Sirens were an 8, so that is what I ordered. Had to trade them in for an 81/2. Once I did that, though, I put them on and took a 3 mile walk over wet, rooty and rocky terrain. They were comfy from the start and stayed dry the entire 3 miles. Love Merrells. I have a wide forefoot but a narrow heel and Merrell always fits me comfortably and they hold up well to my hard use.

Rated 3 out of 5 by GeoMom Heed the warnings
After reading the other reviews, I ordered a half size up from normal. I would have ordered a wide width, unfortunately that option does not exist. The shoe was uncomfortably small both in length and width with just a thin dress sock, and I could not possibly have gotten a mid weight hiking sock on. I sent them back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by nadeaumidd Good item
I love the style. Very sturdy with an excellent tread. As stated before though, definitely order a half-size up. I normally wear a size 7 and my toes were touching the end of the shoe and they were uncomfortably tight width-wise. A 71/2 was perfect.

Rated 1 out of 5 by greatguy Squeaky Soles!
These fit very well but the soles made terrific noise when i was walking on hard surfaces. Now, bought my husband a different pair of Merrells AllOut Blaze shoes and no squeaks. The squeaking may not bother everyone, but even my hard-of-hearing husband heard them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Plantnut Nice Hiker - but questionable water resistance
Definitely order 1/2 size larger than you normally wear since the shoe runs a little small. Very comfortable and well built. Unfortunately, I cannot say that they are completely waterproof. Had leak-through recently and will be exchanging shoe for a different style. Possibly only Goretex is truly waterproof. Next pair of hikers will have Goretex.

Rated 5 out of 5 by hikerwomanAZ Merrells are the best!
My second pair now of Merrells. Awesome fit, took them out of the box and hiked 5.5 miles. Felt like they have been on my feet for a long time. I usually buy a sl. larger boot in the Merrells - seems to run a bit smaller than regular boots/shoes. These fit me perfect (bought the larger size). Ultra comfort, fit is perfect. Highly recommend these hikers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by pepsidoodle LOVE THEM!
I have only had a chance to wear these shoes a couple of times, but the fit is great and they are soooo comfortable! I did go by another review about ordering a half size bigger. I would highly recommend them!

Rated 5 out of 5 by fjelly Light weight - good sole grip
Just received these waterproof hikers and was able to wear them right out of the box. Initially ordered 8.5, my usual size, but because the end of the toe box turns upwards slightly, the shoe was a tad short, especially with a slightly heavy sock. So reordered size 9 which fits perfectly. The shoe is light weight and the sole is very grippy. Have worn them on wet and snowy surfaces without slipping. I like & prefer the toned down neutral colors (compared to the bright color details in some other hiker choices). Overall a very well made shoe.

Replaced my decade or more old Merrill hikers with this pair. They were comfortable from the start. The first hike I took with these shoes right out of the box was four miles. Good grip for trails and road. Lightweight, comfortable, and waterproof. You can't go wrong!

Rated 5 out of 5 by mullivan84 Order 1/2 size up
Just tried these on -- attractive and comfy with higher arch. They run a bit small...if you're planning on wearing thicker socks while hiking I'd probably order a 1/2 size up.
