I spent considerable time looking for a light-weight shoe that would serve me in several different activities (both casual & exercise walking on level terrain, and hiking in varied terranes. Most hiking boots are too high and rub uncomfortably at the ankle, they are also often very difficult to get on and off. These boots are great!! They are very comfortable and are serving me well.

I'm a fan of the fit of Merrell's barefoot line and was looking for a light hiker with more stiffness/support for rocky terrain, with gore-tex for breathe-ability and so I wouldn't have to think too hard about wearing it in wet conditions or taking it as primary travel footwear. This shoe satisfied what I was looking for, but comes up short in terms of tread. I'm an experienced hiker and wouldn't say the traction is as terrible as was described in one review here, but, the sole is only slightly stickier than the typical jogging shoe, without much to offer on ice or loose debris due to the lack of tread. I'd buy this boot again if just for the excellent fit-- lovely room for all of my toes, and a feeling of support while still allowing a flexible sole and connection to the earth. FYI this is a much thicker/stiffer sole than a barefoot Merrell shoe, but it still has some flexibility and little to no heel rise. If Merrell makes a spin off with a better tread I will definitely pick up a pair. Do buy it a half-size up...I did and it fits perfectly.

I'd also recommend: Patagonia, Chaco, North Face, New Balance

I just bought this shoe April 2014 for work. They are comfortable, but they are not water proof. It said they are gortex. If they are, they are not water proof. Very disappointed I need them for work outside. They are no good to me, I spent a lot of money.

As per my orthopedist, Merrell is a very good shoe and I am proud of you for wanting hi-tops. A few months ago, I had a cast for an ankle that had fractured; therefore, I want to use hi-tops...never more casts. These shoes are so light and very comfortable. Best shoes on the market. These shoes are ortho approved. Great for walking and always buy 1/2 size larger...toes can move.

They're super lightweight and the wide toebox is a big plus (it's a hard to find feature in light hikers). I wish they were a bit softer in feel, though. I think they either need more cushioning in the forefoot or a slightly more flexible sole. They're great for going down hill and on rocks - the traction is excellent and my feet don't slip forward in the shoe. But not as thrilled with them on flat terrain - the ball of my feet seem to hit the ground with a slap, which leaves them feeling somewhat battered and numb by the end of a hike. For me, shock absorption in Merrell's has always left a little something to be desired - they feel okay at first, but are hard on my feet in the long haul. If you don't feel that way, these may work fine for you. Style is ok - not one of Merrell's cutest, in my opinion.
