This is my second pair of Merrell boots and my new favorites. Perfect fit from the first time I put them on. I have bunions and have not been able to wear boots. These are an amazing fit and I can wear them all day. Love them!

I love Merrell sandals so thought I'd give the boots a try. Very comfortable boots and they even fit my wide calves. The only problem I've had is that they do make my feet sweat. The black looks almost blue and the look is not quite leather, suede, or vinyl either. It is so hard to find a good boot that fits. Overall I am quite satisfied.

These are so Euro cool. Very comfortable, and the shaft is just right with slim pants tucked in. I think that I'll be living in them since they are wet weather friendly and stylish at the same time!

Bought these boots because I needed them for snow, warmth but did not want an ugly clumsy looking boot. Love them! So comfy, warm and stylish! You will not be disappointed. I have wide feet and thought they were just perfect. Could wear with thick and thin socks.

But the boots! I bought them for a trip to Paris...in winter. I walked miles, make that kilometers through snow and slush. My feet were warm as dry. The boots are very, very comfortable. I wish they were a little more fashionable, but for sensible hard-working boot, they're pretty cute. My calves are on the "athletic" side as they say and I'm able to where them over pants with room to spare. I couldn't be happier. I bought these because I've always had good success with Merrell hiking shoes.

This boot is so comfortable and it looks great, to boot! I want to wear it every day. It was true to size. The leather is not shiny, but it still looks good with casual skirts, and great with slacks and jeans.

Merrell always fits my feet, and living in the UK I really appreciate the waterproofing as well. This is my second pair of Merrell boots (had to get another pair since I'd worn out the soles in the first ones!), and I highly recommend them. The style is a bit on the casual side, but they are so comfortable I couldn't justify a different boot (I walk 4+ miles a day in these).

Love these boots! Even though they're soft leather, the waterproofing makes them feel a little like suede. They are super comfortable and perfect for wearing over skinnies.

Absolutely LOVE them! I am 120 lb, 5'3" and these fit great around my legs. Enough room for jeans but look great with leggings, too. As comfortable as tennis shoes and the only boots that keep my feet warm! I ordered 2 different sizes to make sure I got the right fit. My friend was over, loved mine so I told her to try on the other pair I was sending back. She loved them so much, she bought them from me!

These are the best everyday boots I have purchased! The fact that they are stylish and waterproof is a bonus. I gave them a 4 for comfort only because they are a little stiff at the ankle but it's only an issue with low socks. I plan on buying another pair in brown.

These boots are amazing. Extremely comfortable right out of the box. I usually put inserts in all my shoes, but I do not need them in these. They have a streamline look and don't bulk around the ankle. I have a wider foot, sometimes requiring wide width shoes, sometimes not, depending on the brand. These are perfect. I wear them with tights and dresses, they have replaced my black Uggs...they are way more comfortable and my feet don't get so hot. I've been looking for a long time for the perfect boots and have finally found them!

Love these! I have lots of boots and these are my new favorites for weekends and casual days at work. They are very comfortable from the minute I put them on. They would only be more awesome for me if the shaft was a bit narrower as I don't have "athletic" calves.

These boots are absolutly wonderful!! Wow! I have a 16" calf and they fit and I can tuck my jeans into them. They are super comfortable too. I really like that they are waterproof too. I have wide feet but did not have to buy a wide. These are so comfortable and very well made. My daughter now wants to get a pair.

I actually really like these boots. They seemed expensive, and I wanted them to be worth it--so far, they are. Warm and waterproof, I wear them with pants and dresses, and they're fabulous for city walking.

This boot has a removable insole and a fairly wide toe box without being too loose in the heel. It was great if you use custom footbeds. It also has a fairly large diameter shaft with some goring. I have athletic calves and it is tight with skinny jeans tucked in, but it works. I tried two other boots that did not. Boot is on the casual side. I wear with leggings and casual sweater dress, or skinny jeans. Very stable for walking in snowy & icy conditions. Ran true to size. Can't comment on arch support because I did not use the supplied footbed.

I bought these boots for a winter trip to NYC and NJ. I wanted to be prepared for snow, while looking like a fashionable boot. These Merrell Captiva boots did not disappoint. Even my 17 year old daughter approved! They are very comfortable for walking and were definitely waterproof. We walked all around NYC in the snow/rain/slush and my feet stayed dry the entire time and never felt tired. My only complaint is that they are a bit wide around the ankles, but this didn't bother me or cause blisters. You won't be disappointed with these boots. Thank you Zappos!

I have wide feet, but these boots are so comfortable that I wore them all day the first time I wore them. I can even wear them with warm medium weight wool socks. They are very cute and casual, great in wet weather, but I would not recommend them as snow boots as they are not insulated. I have gotten lots of compliments.

Love these. I also have the prior year version, which was called Tetra Strap Waterproof. They look the same, but the current year version (Captiva) has 1 extra inch in the calf. They are exactly what I was looking for: waterproof enough to wear in the rain/snow (I don't expect to wade through rivers in them), full zipper, low heel, comfortable for walking, stylish, goes with pants/skirts. I can wear them with leggings, yoga pants, or thin cotton pants tucked in. Regular jeans or boot cut pants have too much fabric for me to be able to comfortably zip them up. The measurements given online were accurate. I ordered my usual size, and wear them with cushy socks (which I what I usually wear with most of my shoes). I ordered the Espresso color (I have the black in last year's version). The color is a little darker than what appeared on my screen. It's more of a rich, dark chocolate color, but still reads as brown and not black.

These boots are comfortable all day long, I could barely tell I was even wearing boots after a full day on my feet. I have owned Merrell before, but these boots are tops. Anyone looking for a stylish boot, that you can wear all day, and all night, without having to sacrifice style is going to love these boots!

I have a hard time finding shoes to fit, and this time was no exception. This Merrell Captiva Strap was the 6th boot I had tried. Thanks to free shipping both ways and Zappos fabulous customer service, I persevered and finally found a comfy boot. It goes on and off easily, unlike the Merrell Tetra Strap. The ankle on the Tetra is so narrow, even if you have skinny ankles like me, it is still hard to get them on. The Captiva has plenty of room to wiggle your toes and is comfy from day one. My 53 year-old feet love them and I think they look cool with skinny jeans or a skirt.

I've already written quite a lengthy review, but I'd forgotten to mention sizing so I wanted to make sure I did. I am usually a 7 to a to a 7 and 1/2. I was concerned I'd need the bigger of the two in order to make sure I had room to wear a little bit thicker sock. I purchased the 7 and they are great. I have enough room to wear a thicker sock if needed, but not so much extra room that they feel too big if I don't.

This boot was exactly what I was looking for. It is a stylish riding boot and has the bonus of being waterproof. Even better, the goring with elastic at the top gives it a great fit tucked in my jeans despite my wider than average calves.

I adore these boots. I have had them for a couple of months now, and I wear them at least a couple times a week. They are incredibly comfortable, from the first minute I put them on. They are warm and waterproof and have good grip, but they don't look like 'winter' boots. They are fantastic. I have never written a review for any type of shoe, and I had to chime in on this one. These boots rock.
