I'm giving this shoe a 5 star review! The fit was perfect, 7.5 true to size. Walked for miles on trails and they were warm on a really cold day. I love the rounded toe shape. The soles had great grip. The backs didn't slip on me at all and there was no ankle rubbing. Very happy with them!

Okay, I'm going to admit right here and now that I bought these trail shoes for that brilliant little pink dot that rests on the side of the shoes right under where your toes hit...and...of course I'm paying for my shameless vanity choice or I wouldn't be reviewing this shoe as we speak! This is an average shoe and wildly underwhelming in the hiking department. Do you see yourself running up a rock face in Moab or hitting the tree trail for a quick and dirty fun run or trudging through the snow in these? I'm thinking you, like me won't simply for the fact that these shoes have no traction. They have no teeth to bite. Yes, they are waterproof. They have that going for them. Merrell is telling us this is a light shoe but it wears weight-wise much more like my Salomon XA Pro Ultra CS/WP's than the fantastically light Salomon XR Mission CS's. This is a pretty unforgiving, heavy, stiff shoe. There is no foot hugging love or support or technical sexy-ness going on in there at all which in this day and age of excellent trail shoes is pretty unforgivable. Think Brook's Cascadia, then think of a kind of square, dense, unformed shoe and you get the picture. I am a true 8 and they were just snug enough that if I were repurchasing I would recommend anyone with toe problems to go up half a size. I don't know what the break-in time might have been on these, all I know is that I dreaded trying to squeeze my tender picky feet into this unforgiving, stiff mess of a shoe. If you're looking for a pretty mediocre trail shoe that costs as much as the best trail shoes on the market and don't really care about comfort or performance, but like me are tempted by the cute pink dot....you have been warned.

These are terrific shoes - especially for an older person whose gait has been compromised by knee replacement, a broken ankle, and consequent arch issues . We all get old. These shoes are comfortable, stable and give me confidence to walk on all surfaces. I would love them in a summer weight, but that may only be possible on Olympus - but they neither age nor wear shoes in the world of gods so are truly missing out.

Very comfortable, able to wear them right out of the box. I like the extra toe room. The purple color is great ands color to my life.

I have worn Merrell shoes for years. My size is always a dependable 8 and these shoes were true to form with one added benefit, comfort. I equated support with heavy, but not this shoe. Light, and secure on my feet. If there is a downside, it's the color. It's the blackest shoe I have ever owned but that's okay given all the above! Thank goodness for the purple accents.
