This boot is a favorite, bought the black, then went back for the brown. I'm a size 11 with a narrow heel and small calves. Can be worn dressy or casual. I have stepped in some puddles and feet remained dry. I'm not a good judge for warmth because my feet are basically always cold. This is the toe shape that I look for - no pinching or scrunching. The leather is wonderful and good quality. A little tilt of the foot helps get into the zipper that seems to give some reviewers a problem.

I love these boots! They are more of a winter boot - way too hot for the summer.

I wanted a particular style of boots and looked all over the internet for them. Zappos was the best price by far. Their checkout process was easy and tracking the progress of my purchase was even easier. The boots arrived as planned and I'm delighted! I'm always nervous about buying online but Zappos was great to deal with.

I love these boots (I also have them in dark brown). Super comfortable and very easy to break in. I get tons of compliments whenever I wear them.

I bought a pair of there Merrell Captiva Strap boots for my adult daughter as a surprise gift when she had broken the heel off her beloved brown boots from another maker. I hoped she would like them. Turns out they are the brown version of her beloved black boots she has worn for two years. (she's big on boots, and puts them through quite a workout!) The brown boots seem well made and fit true to size. They have a roomy toe box, and moderate arch support ~ although she wears orthotics, that fit well in the boots. The 2 year old black boots have lost some of the waterproofing especially around the zipper, but still clean up well enough after knocking around construction sites and chicken coops to wear out to dinner, and with a dress. I feel as if this is money well spent for the hours of abuse I know they will handle.

Definitely love this boot, was looking for something stylish to wear when it rains/snows and these work great! I wear them all the time to and from work and find them extremely comfy. They did take some breaking in, like many reviewers commented I had the same problem, very hard to get on at first, then fit great once on. The reason is the zipper doesn't go down far enough to make them more water resistant, which in my experience the only time my feet have gotten wet in 40+ wears was when I stepped in slush above the zipper. They did break in after about 2 weeks of struggling to get them on and off. I did order a half size larger but found those, although easier to put on to be too roomy once on. Again I love these boots now that they fit well. They do look a little worn after only a few months, but I really do wear them all the time and they've kept me warm through the harsh, and always changing, New England weather.

I needed comfortable and durable boots for an overseas winter work trip...as I was expecting a lot of walking on pavement and potential inclement weather. I purchased and returned two other boots before lucking out with the Merrell Captiva. Not only are they fashionable, but they so comfortable! They kept my feet warm and dry in heavy rain, freezing sleet and light snow. I only had a couple days before my trip to break them in (I thought I might have issues with the boot poking the back of my ankle, but I forgot about it after day 2), and wore them on my 13 hour flight without any regret. My new favorite winter boots, and the best purchase I've ever made on Zappos!

Love! I recently had arthroscopic knee surgery on both knees so needed flat supportive boots with a stable cushioned sole and heel where there was enough room to accommodate an orthotic. These do just the trick. I usually wear a size 5.5 but bought a size 6 to accommodate an orthotic insert plus tights. Perfect. So, perfect, I bought the same boot in both black and brown.

These are really cute, really stylish, and really comfortable. I normally wear size 7-1/2, but in Merrell shoes I wear a 7. The 7 worked for me in the boot. Many boots have big, sloppy ankles, but these have shape at the ankles and make your legs look good. I have received many many compliments. I wear them over jeans and leggings, and with skirts and dresses. I would have bought the brown ones, too, but I do not care for the shade of brown.

Awesome boot! Wore them for five days straight after opening the box. I am on my feet all day and they have remained comfortable, no need to break them in.

These are fantastic! I have large calves and always have a difficult time finding the perfect pair of boots. This pair accommodate my calves, are trim at the ankle, and are very comfortable. I wear these over tights or with skinny jeans tucked in. The style is comfortable, but they are tailored enough to wear with skirts. The material makes them easy to clean as well.

I love these boots! I have been searching for the perfect pair of black tall boots for almost two years. I can't even count how many pairs I have ordered and sent back. These are The Ones! The waterproof construction and grippy soles are great for wintry weather, but they are not overly insulated, so I can see wearing them in late spring or early fall just as easily. The strap at the ankle is a nice detail that keeps the boots from looking too plain. The toebox is neither too pointy nor too rounded, just shaped like an actual foot with room to wiggle the toes. They are trim through the ankle and can feel a bit tight as I put them on, but once the boots are on and zipped, no problem. Speaking of size, I am generally a borderline 10 or 10.5. I ordered these in a 10 expecting I might need to send them back to size up, but they actually fit perfectly (even worn with socks).

I just received these boots today. When I picked up the box, I thought they had gotten my order wrong...surely a pair of boots would not be this light! These boots are wonderful! I have flip flops that weight more than these! They wear like a pair of moccasins. I'm totally wowed by them! One note, I broke one of the zipper pulls the very first time I put them on. They need something a little more substantial to hold on to when zipping. I'm probably going to fix this with a piece of leather lacing, but Merrell might want to consider this. I got a compliment on them the very first place I went into. Great boot Merrell! Service from Zappos was excellent!

I have severe knee problems due to arthritis so these boots are awesome for me! I live in NYC and I walk alot. I purchased these boots in both the cinnamon and black colors and I wear them with everything. They are indeed waterproof, kept my feet dry during the unpredictable rainy weather hitting the city lately.

Wish the zipper went down all the way as they are a little hard to get on. Once they are on, they are quite roomy...good boot for blue jeans as they are casual.

These boots are stylish enough for everyday and incredibly comfortable for extended wear. I walked for miles in them this week, bike rides too, with no foot pain. I usually wear orthotics due to past foot surgery and I didn't need to with these! A side plus is that they are not large and clunky. Even my big feet feel petite. And they truly are waterproof! I love them!

Excellent boots! I bought these for a holiday trip to NYC. I walked around all day in the city and was comfortable the entire time! When it began to snow and rain, my feet stayed warm and dry. I get a lot of compliments every time I wear them. I highly recommend.

I was told about this brand from a friend and I needed some boots for trip to Seattle in January. They are so comfortable out of the box and I couldn't be happier with them (even after walking around the city all day in them). I have huge calfs and these actually fit my legs so that's a huge bonus.

Awesome waterproof boot. Walked in a foot of snow, my feet were totally dry, cold because they're not insulated, just wear good socks. Buy these boots. Look great too.

These boots are so fantastic! Super comfortable footbed with a traction sole. I love to wear them with skinny jeans or skinny cords tucked inside. They have been comfortable since the first wear. I get a lot of compliments from colleagues as we are all on our feet all day and everyone is looking for a comfy boot/shoe. This boot is a perfect cross of style and comfort! Love them!
