So Merrell read my mind with this shoe. I like to walk technical trails and have been wearing a pair of Siren Sport waterproof shoes in what I can only guess was a half size too small. A recent hiking trip with my 9 year old daughter during which she floated over difficult terrain like a fairy in her Keen sandals while her mother in hiking shoes had to actually bend down and use hands convinced me that my hikers had to go. Tons of searching later and I found these: they are agile, grippy, and have excellent terrain feel (not too little and not too much). If you are not a long distance hiker (I can easily do 5 miles in these) and want something light weight and comfortable, these are it. They are actually way cute too -- great colors, want to wear them all the time. I typically wear a size 9 shoe, size 9.5 in sneakers. My waterproof sirens were too small in 9.5, but the Blaze fits perfectly in 9.5. These are honestly perfect shoes. I don't typically write reviews, but I was so tortured by this shoe search that I had to share. Zappos, as always, was top notch!

I want to keep this shoe. I love the way this shoe looks. I do not love the way this shoe feels on my foot. I had to send these shoes back because I wore them around the house for 5 minutes and the insole of the shoe is so hard and the arch is so high that I couldn't bear to keep them on. I don't have particularly flat feet, but the arches in these shoes were so high that they hurt. As far as I'm concerned, these are the best looking hikers out there. But I can't stand to walk five feet in them.

I love these shoes! I bought these a few months ago when I won a permit to climb Half Dome in Yosemite and was in need of a good pair of hiking shoes. I've worn these out on numerous hikes so far, and have zero complaints. There was a short break-in period during my first hike on one foot; however, that may have been my fault due to not ensuring my foot was all the way back when tying the laces. From the start these shoes felt at one with my feet, but now after many hikes together, these shoes and my feet are practically the same being. They grip really well, I've taken them on granite slabs, volcanic cinders, gravel, wet rocks in a creek and mud, and they've worked great in every situation. The laces stay laced, don't even need to double knot them, they even look good when dirty because of their coloring. I wasn't sure if I should get these or the mid-ankle version but having fairly strong ankles I'm really glad I chose these because on crazy terrain they allow my ankles to move freely and do their job without interference from a shoe. I ordered these in a women's 8 and 8.5 to ensure the best fit. I'm almost always an 8 in shoes, and indeed the 8 was the perfect fit. 8.5 didn't hug my foot right and a 7.5 my toes would've touched the ends. I can't say enough good things about these shoes. I was searching for a non-dorky looking pair of hiking shoes (I looked at tons of shoes before settling on these), and with my Half Dome trip just about here I have high confidence that these will serve me well.

I have had these shoes for about two months and I am both disappointed and completely in love with them. I work in a grooming salon bathing dogs and the waterproofing on these shoes leaves a bit to be desired. If you walk in damp grass, they are fine. But any continuous falling water soaks right in (honestly, it drains down the tongue and gets in the crack at the bottom-major design flaw!). I guess my version of "waterproof" may be a bit unrealistic, but don't expect these to hold up to crazy use and keep out high volumes of water. I am, however, in love with the comfort and fit. I have had two knee surgeries and these provide the support and comfort I need for my knees. The toe on the left shoe has started to peel off, but considering I wear this for 8+ hours each day in a hard environment, I can't really say it is a flaw. I just super-glued it back on to keep it from peeling farther, and am fine with needing to do that. Two months of continuous wear in a killer environment allows for some wear and tear! This all being said, I would hands-down purchase another pair as every-day sneakers/hiking shoes, but not for work. (I am about to spray them down with silicone water-proofing spray in hopes of extending their work-life. They're too pricey to replace after two months!)

These shoes are deceiving. The appear to be a heavy rugged trail walker but they are as light as a feather. Good arch support and after a quick 1 mile walk I could not believe that I didn't have a start of a "new shoe" blister.
