I have to say originally I loved these shoes. The fit was good, they were comfy and they kept my feet dry. But after a year they were useless. I had come to expect more from Merrell considering the amount of money I spent on them but literally eleven months after buying them (and not everyday and I didn't wear them at all in the summer) the leather started to flake away and they were definitely not water tight. I will be looking for a different more rugged shoe.

This shoe is sturdy, comfortable and good grip for short hiking. It was a little short in the toe so I worry about a longer hike.

I bought these just for winter walking and running. I put orthotics in them, and I love them. They are waterproof, as touted, and they are comfortable as well. I am very pleased.

I definitely recommend this shoe after a year of putting it through the wringer (snow, heavy rain, mud, walking all day, travel). It is comfortable, flexible, and always waterproof. I have very high arches and very wide feet, and the only time I had any issue was once I used them to do a brisk walk 5 miles for exercise and found they weren't quite wide enough (I bought the "wide" width), but other than that one time I find them very comfortable, they have been wonderful on several hikes of 4 to 5 miles and of course great for work (I do walk around outside for work) and weekends. In summary - a 5 star all-around shoe but if you have very wide feet use tennis shoes for long distance walking/running on paved paths.

I love this shoe so much I ordered a second pair after totally wearing out the first one. They look great on the foot. They feel wonderful and give the best support I have had in any athletic shoe. I have some pronation on one foot and it totally corrects that when I have them on. I also love the color combinations that they come in. Lynn Buhaug

Brands I'd also recommend: I like the Keen brand also

These shoes rock! I have worn them hiking, repelling down waterfalls, rafting and zip-lining. They dry quickly, keep feet dry (when not submerged in water) and look great after having them 2 1/2 years!

I need a great shoe for walking on vacations. These are tight and rub on the outside below the little toes. Hope they will stretch because I love the color and style. I didn't want white or black with jeans!

Very comfortable while walking in the rain. Bought it to use for our trip to Whistler in few weeks, anticipating sloshing around in the village. I'm sure my feet will be happy and dry.

I love these shoes! This is my second pair. They are so comfortable and durable. They are water proof and a good alternative to a snow boot. They did need a little break in period.

I bought these for an upcoming vacation that will require alot of walking on asphalt. I'm wearing the shoes daily to break them in. I find that the insoles are not soft, but somehow they are very comfortable. They seem to reduce strain on my feet, legs and back. I believe these will be perfect for their intended use. Added bonus: I really like the appearance of these shoes. I normally prefer ballet flats, but they would be impractical for the amount of walking during this trip.

Really happy with these shoes. Comfortable right away, without having to break them in. Light weight so not bulky. Did buy a half size larger than my usual size, fits great.

These are great shoes. I have worn them every day for at least an hour of walking in an urban area. They are also stylish. I ordered one full size above normal and they fit great.

Just received these shoes and am very very satisfied with them. I need a 9.5 but with most shoes must order a 10 because I have a wide foot; usually this means sometimes shoes can fit not so well for me. No problem this time; great fit. This is my second pair of Merrells. Came back to this brand after trying a pair of North Face trail shoes that within a year the upper material was pulling away from the sole. Decided to come back to what worked and think it will prove to be a good decision.

These shoes are comfortable and sturdier than I thought they would be. No breaking in period required! These are supposed to be waterproof, due to the Gortex, but I haven't worn them in the rain yet, so I can't address that. They give plenty of support and are a great walking shoe.

Best shoe ever! I got these a month ago and I think I've worn them every day since. I love them. They molded to my feet like gloves in just a few days yet provide really nice support. And the waterproofing got put to a serious test this weekend and they passed with flying colors. All weekend in buckets of rain and mud and my feet stayed 100% dry. I'm going to order more in case they ever stop making these.

We found the same shoe at a similar price elsewhere, but they didn't offer the range of colors offered by Zappos. We appreciate having more choices, easy ordering and prompt delivery. Thanks!

I ordered this 1/2 size larger than my usual after reading other reviews and they fit perfectly. Since I just got them I can't comment on long-term wear, but I have high hopes. I'd previously tried a pair of Keen waterproof hikers, but they were too big in the heel and just plain clunky looking. My order arrived on a Monday afternoon after ordering on Saturday and I live in the far NW corner of the country -- Great service Zappos!

Love these shoes! But, listen to other reviews, I have low ankles and the tongue of the shoes rubs them around where it ties. This isn't a huge issue for me, however, I still love the shoes. They are casual and comfortable and so far waterproof, but I haven't tried them in the snow yet.

Love these shoes...the second day I wore them I went on our son's 6th grade class field trip and hiked 3 miles in wet grass and trails, I had dry socks when it was over. Very comfortable and easy to break in.

I had an old pair of the Merrell Siren's for 5 years and was so impressed with the amazing quality of these shoes I decided to give them another go-around, this time with GORE-TEX. Love, love, love them and I knew they would fit like a charm. I wear them everyday at work where I have to stand on my feet all day. They are also awesome for hiking. Don't know where I'd be without my Sirens.
