I saw the many reviews remarking sole separation early on in the boot life, but decided to go for the Wilderness anyway. I'll have to wait and see how my pair fairs since they arrived not long ago, but so far I can say I'm very pleased with the build quality and craftsmanship of the pair I received. While they're stiff out of the box, they are no where near as uncomfortable as I know non-broken-in, all-leather boots can be; these are immediately wearable. I've taken them out for a romp several times and no blisters or sore points. Very warm. A real joy to wear. They're solid, provide great support and I imagine them wearing in very nicely. I'm looking forward to many paths ahead with these boots.

These are very comfortable boots. Instead of going on and on, I will just summarize the basic points: The out of box comfort is excellent. They will still need a some breaking-in for climbing (remember, just walking around town is not the same as climbing). The grip seems fairly good. They did not pass the torture test on wet granite (I am not sure what boots would, though). The flexing point is not as far forward as some other boots, which works well for my feet because it does not put as much stress on my injured big toe joint. I wanted a stiff sole, so I like it. The heel collar is as comfortable as you can get. I normally wear a 10, but I needed a 9½ in these boots. They are slightly wide. I wish they made a narrower version. The toe room is excellent. No banged-up toes for me. The heel hold-down is good. The temperature is warm, but on par for boots of this type. And not intolerable like my Keen shoes, which are like ovens. The lacing/tongue is simple and effective, unlike some of the overly-complicated designs of modern boots. I have not had them long enough to tell about durability. The insole is mediocre. Get your own. They are not light, but once on my feet I do not notice the weight. The brown ones scuff very easily so be careful when trying them out. I also tried the Danner Mountain Light II which were funky boots that did not work for me. The Alico Tahoe which were beautiful boots for a very low price at Sierra Trading Post. They did not quite work for my feet, but are worth trying.

Extremely comfortable except for the somewhat stiff sole; short break-in there. Superb quality; Coupled with Zappos, it doesn't get better. Merrell shipped me a second set of laces in Blue. True to size.

Great pair of boot. These boots could easily last 10 years with active use, then get resoled and go on for another 5. That being said, they are a heavier construction and do take a bit of wearing before the leather breaks in. Do not expect to buy these and go on a heavy trip after just a few days of break in. Made in the old fashion style of Goodyear welt with good quality leather. Also, seems like sizing is done to accommodation multiple and or heavy socks. The size was around 3/4 size larger than its comparable competitors. Serious backpacking/mountaineering boot. I think the next step up would be to a synthetic or plastic boot for crampon/ice climbing.. Although, once broken in they could be used for just about any outdoor activity. Just may be a little warm or heavy for day hiking, especially in warmer climates.

I'd also recommend: Asolo
