The Chameleon is the best shoe platform I have come across. I like the waterproof option in something that breathes. The footbed is stable and allows for use in virtually any terrain. On a side note, I have had a set of the chameleon 2, 4, and 5. I am still partial to my 4s, and luckily they are not completely done yet. The toe box on the 4 is less stylish but more durable. I like the sole better on the 5. Overall I highly recommend these Merrell shoes. They are super comfortable and definitely true to size. Hope this helps!

Very happy with these shoes. True to size and quite comfortable. Look good and feel good. Worth the price.

So, as could be expected, Merrell followed suit with so many other shoes companies and took a great hiking boot, and changed it when it wasn't broken. I loved my Chameleon 4's, was excited to try the 5's. They are stiff, require some considerable "breaking in", and don't feel nearly as comfortable and stable as the 4's. In fact, I wasn't really able to ever get the 5's broken in to the point that I liked to wear them. I instead went back to an older pair of Chameleon 4's. Now I have to take some wild stab in the dark and see if there is another boot that will get the job done for me. Gonna try the Moab's next, I guess. True shame that tried to "fix something that wasn't broke." Bottom Line, if you loved the 4's, don't expect to like the 5's.

This review is actually for the previous model, the Chameleon 4 (which is discontinued.) Great shoe, very comfortable, waterproof, wore it for about 350 miles of hiking. BUT the sole ripped/started to delaminate after 350 miles. (That is a lot of hiking - probably more than most people will do.) It is possibly a fluke, or due to e.g. the microspikes I wore on the bottoms, and I liked the shoes enough that I'm buying a pair of these, but I'm kind of irritated. And it happened after 13 months, so do not think that I can return them...
