When I took these out of the box, it was love at first sight. I held my breath as I slipped them on my feet hoping they would feel as good as they look. Yes! They are super comfy, warm, and stylish. They are softer than expected, like a sneaker, and require no break in period. I could walk all day in them. I ordered a half size up as I think Merrell runs short. They're perfect.

I am returning these boots because they run very small in circumference around the calf. I do have a bit of an athletic calf from hiking and softball, but not an outrageously large calf. These boots are too narrow at the top & I couldn't even begin to zip the zipper! Shame on Merrell for not executing this boot in a better way to include an elastic gusset or a wider circumference. If you have tiny calves, you might be able to zip this boot & actually wear it.

This is comfortable and seemed warm. I didn't keep them because there was no gusset behind the zipper.

These boots are very nice. All materials were very soft and warm. Sadly, the instep was so low, I couldn't even try them on. I usually wear size 8 and I'm more comfortable in shoes with a wide/flat design (I don't usually need the actual wide size) and I know these would've fit me fine...if I could get them on! I was very surprised. I'm sad to have to return them.

I could not even get them on my feet, as shaft too narrow, perhaps because of relatively high arch. I am returning.

It has finally been cold enough to wear these boots and I love them! Very comfy and toasty. I went a whole size up to accommodate a sock liner and heavy sock.

I love these! Out of the box comfortable and ordered a 1/2 size up and both as previously stated! First day wearing them (only received yesterday) and really happy with how my feet feel! Look forward to many long walks with warm and dry feet! I have very wide feet for my 6 1/2 but, have loved wearing Merrell's for years. I ordered the 7 which fit very well. I will not be able to wear big, thick socks but, with these boots and no need!

These boots are beautiful! Perfect fit right out of the box. Comfortable wide toe box so they are great even with thick wool socks. Deep groove treads provide excellent traction on ice.

I didn't want to love these because of the price, but the minute I put them on I couldn't help myself. I've never had a shoe fit so perfectly and so comfortably, yet be so versatile. They run true to size and are totally worth the money. I'm sending the other, less expensive boots I tried back. Keeping these forever.

I love these boots! I like how they look and more importantly how they feel. I have a wide foot, and a high arch and usually wear a size 9 reg to wide. After reading the reviews about size I ordered a 10 so I could add my orthotic inserts and wear thick socks. The size was perfect for this, but you can wear them without socks and the insert that come with them does give some support. The toe area is nice and wide giving plenty of room for your toes. The padding is very thick and initially I had a hear time getting them on, so I unbuckled them (because of my high arch) and tried without socks, and wore them around the house for awhile. Once the padding was flattened out a little, I could get them on with socks. They are very warm and comfortable and I look forward to wearing them in the snow!

I never write reviews...but I bought a pair of Merrell Winterbelle boots and they were very uncomfortable. They were too tight on the calf and hurt my ankle bone. I returned them for these boots, sight unseen...I was so lucky. These boots are so comfy and warm and look great. They are very true to size. I love the traction on the bottom on slippery surfaces and also they are waterproof. Today, while walking my dog my foot went into a muddy watery hole...almost to the top of the boot, and the water literally repelled off it, and my foot was dry. And they were dirty but not nearly as dirty as I figured. A quick rinse when I got home was all it needed.

I love these boots. When I first tried them on, they seemed too lightweight. I was concerned that they would not give me good foot support over the course of a day, particularly in bad weather. I was wrong. They are super comfortable, and I have hiked in them in New Mexico, where it has been below freezing for the past two weeks. They feel like warm, comfortable moccassins. I have a narrow foot and fairly thin calf and they are great. I recommend ordering one half size bigger than you normally do.

These are perfect for the on the go Urban Dweller who doesn't want to fuss with laces/ huge clunky snow boots but wants a cozy shearling lining and a solidly weatherproof exterior. Warm, comfortable and a bit sleeker than Sorels, a great pick. Easy to walk in, much better suited to winter mess than UGGs and great looking, too!

Great boots! Was looking for something to walk the dog with in the rain and snow, and these are great. Very comfortable and warm. I ordered several other pairs to compare, and these were the best by far. I highly recommend them.

I love this boot! I purchased it in the camel and now I am thinking of getting the black too. It's extremely comfortable. It's padded on the inside and the bottom is lined with fur too. I do have narrow feet, ankles and calves and this boot fits me perfectly so not sure it would work for people who have larger/wider feet/ankles.

Good boot overall. Sole offers great traction on slick/wet surfaces. They are lined internally with faux fur and they are warm, but not as warm as you would want in very low temps. Then again, my feet are always cold. Leather upper feels a bit thin. Toe box is big, but it feels snug around ankle. Getting boot on is a bit of a squeeze. Because of this, I had to order half size up.

These boots are very stylish but I could not get my feet into the 8.5, which is the size I normally take for Merrell. I should have listened to the other reviewers and ordered up a size, but they also felt too narrow so I am not sure going up in size would help.
