I tried these because I wanted something light on my foot for hiking in Alaska. I loved everything about them, nice airy feel. Problem was when i thought about what I really needed, a waterproof option made more sense. Sending them back even though I really like them. Going with the Vasque Inhaler II GTX - fits and feels like a hi-top sneaker, but waterproof and sturdy sole.

I LOVE these boots! It is so difficult to find footwear that doesn't exacerbate my plantar fasciitis, and I haven't had good luck with Merrells in the past. But the moment I put these on, I was in love! So comfortable! And they're cute, too, which is an added bonus in my "practical, comfortable shoe" world. I did order 1/2 size larger than I normally would (after reading other reviews). I also removed the insole and inserted a Powerstep Pinnacle orthotic for additional arch support.

Love these shoes. I have had a lot of foot surgery and these shoes are perfect for me. They were comfortable right out of the box. I did buy 1/2 size larger. Would buy these shoes again.

These boots were comfortable right out of the box. No break in period necessary. I usually wear size 7.5 athletic shoes . Based on the reviews advising to go up in size, I ordered size 8. This did not work for me at all. The second I put my foot inside I thought too big! Thanks Zappos for easy return! I ordered my usual size 7.5 and all was good. So for me, they are true to size. Excellent arch support. Big toe box area, which is fine with me. Pleased with the boot.

These shoes are made very well. I bought them for my 8 year old son even though they are women's shoes. They are very little weight and tough. He out grew them before there was any significant wear. He wore them almost daily.

These boots are the best! They are so comfortable. I wore them with out any break-in time. They were wonderful. I ordered a 1/2 size larger to be able to wear a thick sock. They fit perfectly.

I bought these for trip to Yellowstone. I sized up half a size. That was the perfect fit and they are incredibly comfortable! I have bunions but narrow ankles and these did the trick for sure - I am so glad that I purchased them!

This shoe runs short. I ordered two pair, one for my sister and one for myself, sizing up by .5 larger for both of us. Our feet are different in size and shape. The shoes are a perfect fit, supporting ankle as well as foot. We both wear thick hiking socks with our shoes. Very comfortable, very stable.

These are really great shoes. Good value. Lace up is firm and easy. I buy hikers a little bigger so socks will fit and accommodate swelling feet.

I have never been unhappy with a single pair of Merrells I have bought and these boots did not let me down. I did listen to previous reviews however and ordered a full size up. The boots fit me perfectly. I don't have many miles on them yet so cannot comment on longevity but for comfort and traction they meet my needs. They are not waterproof but I wanted a pair of boots for summer hiking and felt a waterproof pair would just be too hot. I would recommend these for warm weather hiking.

I read many reviews before purchasing these. Lots of folks felt thy ran small. In other Merrells I have been a true 5.5 so I went with 5.5. They are perfect for heel cup to room in the toe. With light socks. I bought them for a safari in Africa and think the light weight and mid top with be terrific. Excellent product and excellent service from Zappos. So pleased.

Brands I'd also recommend: Only have purchased Merrells

I should have listened to the people who said it's too small- and not the people who said don't listen to those people. Shoe looks fabulous but even though I take a 9.5 or 10 at the most-- I will need a 10.5 in this shoe at a minimum as one of my big toes touches the top.

I didn't buy mine at Zappos, but I saw a critical review and just had to write my own review. I've owned four pairs of these hikers over the years, and they wear like iron. I've hiked in the Grand Canyon, painted my house, and went a million miles on a treadmill in these shoes. They've been so very comfortable and seem to give my feet the sizing and fit that makes them my choice even for the treadmill. I will add that I use a padded custom arch support insert in most my shoes, so I do use inserts in these as well.

I wore these shoes during a trip to Israel and Jordan last month. They are perfect. Minimal break-in time, lightweight, flexible sole, superb arch support, comfortable ankle support, incredible traction, even on wet, uneven stones in Petra. Every day of my trip, I thanked myself for buying these shoes. I did order a full size up from my regular shoe size. There's tons of room in the toe bed, which is so important when you're on your feet for several hours.

This is my third pair of these shoes. I wear them daily and they support my feet pretty well. I do wish there was better arch support, but that is the only complaint I have. They have held up well and keep me going through my daily walks and working on the farm. My feet suffer from plantar fasciatis, a bunion and Morton's syndrome, so finding a pair of shoes that work for me is little short of miraculous!

This is my third pair of this boot. They are the perfect hiking boot for me. I typically wear a 9 which is what I wear in this boot, and they are roomy enough for an orthotic. I do mostly light hiking in the Midwest but do spend some time in rougher terrain in Wyoming and Utah, and they have been a good boot for that also.

I typically require a wide width shoe, especially in hiking boots. I ordered 1/2 size bigger than usual and these fit perfectly. I've been wearing them for about 2 weeks now and there was no "break-in" time at all. Very pleased with these shoes.

Brands I'd also recommend: For wide shoes I suggest Propet, my favorite hiking boot!

If you have worn Merrels in the past, stick with the size that fits you. Do not go bigger! I took some advice from reviews. That was a bad choice! I wear and 8 not 8½ not 9. My boots are to roomy, will never be good for a hard hike my feet move around in them to much. I doubt adding heavy socks which would cook my feet would help. It would just make it tighter and more uncomfortable around my foot. This is what I get for reading reviews! I cannot return them as I already hiked in them to test out. I am so bummed!

Love these boots. Just came in from a walk in the woods. While they don't give as much support as a boot with a higher upper, I needed this lower boot because I have sensitive shins. Comfortable, warm. Bought 1/2 size larger than usual to accommodate heavy sock and it is perfect.

I love these shoes! They are perfect here in our AZ weather! I got them on a Thursday and wore them on a 6 mile advanced hike without any discomfort or blisters! This hike was steep up and down too! I highly recommend them to others who do a lot of hiking in milder arid climates.

I had an older pair of Chameleons that gave up the ghost after 10 years. These are a deceptively comfortable, breathable pair of boots. I need a narrower heel and wider instep and these deliver perfectly. They felt a little less "cushy" inside than my old boots, but the support and the way they direct weight to keep the pressure properly distributed throughout each step means that they stay comfortable with less foot fatigue all day. One final comment, if you are looking for stiff ankle support, these are NOT the boots for you. The top is a little low and the lacing pattern does not snug the ankle area as well as other mids I've tried. BUT that factor along with the ventilated design means that your feet stay relatively cooler in hot weather.

I have NEVER had to break these in. That's amazing trust me I know. Now I order them before the current ones die. I lost count of how many pairs I've had. They usually "live" for about a year and a half of daily "dog walking" use plus backpacking trips before they "die".
