Best: unique color and style, waterproof (they have worked well in snow and rain and kept my feet warm), comfortable. Plus they are just fun to wear. :-)

Of all the boots I looked at I picked these because they zip up, not lace, and I will be wearing them to travel. It was suppose to be raining and cold this holiday so I took them on my trip - nope it was warm out but I did wear them in the morning and can say they fit great, the buckles give you some added adjustment, they were very warm and not as heavy as I thought - I love them.

Y'know how there's that guy that looks really good from afar and then you get closer...and he still looks okay...and then you date and it's like...he's fine...there's nothing really specifically wrong...but he's just not doin' it for ya? That's these boots. They look great in the picture. They look pretty good on. But something...something just wasn't workin' for me. I really wanted to love them, and they are beautifully rendered and designed and all that but...nope. Oh well. Love is fickle.

I bought these boots out of desperation versus love as I had a last minute trip to subzero temperatures. But after wearing these boots for a solid week - I absolutely love them. They are warm, fit well over wool socks, keep your feet dry. They are easy to get on and off.

I asked for these boots as a Christmas gift and I am so pleased with them so far. They don't feel as clunky on my feet as I thought they might. We are experience -0 temperatures with snow and wind and my feet have stayed warm walking in the snow and getting in and out of the car. I haven't really tried them for outdoor snow activities. Many, many compliments on them. Very happy.

Northern NV winters are cold and often snowy. I walk a couple of miles with my dog every morning and wanted a boot that was comfortable and supportive, and would keep my feet warm. This boot has been great! Super cute and comfy, good grippy sole, supportive and warm. They do run a little large. I ordered a half size down and with heavy socks they are comfortably roomy.

Boots are very cute in person and with the side zip, easy to take on and off. I'm and 8.5-9 and ordered 9 which fit perfect. The do seem a bit narrow but I don't have wide feet so it's just fine. 2 things to know - these boots are not fur lined (only the cuffs) and the lining is not removable. I bought these for after skiing as lacing up my clunky Sorels is a nuisance. These boots are perfect for that and warm too!

Though I have other Merrell boots in an 8.5, for these an 8 was better. The heel slipped a lot in my normal size. Otherwise super cute!

Good boots - warm and dry. They are comfortable to walk around in all day. I previously had a different pair of Merrell boots that were a little more stylish in my opinion, but these are cute enough for snow boots. I ordered boots in my typical size and they are big enough to wear thick, warm socks, but not too big that they are uncomfortable if I wear normal socks.

I usually wear 7-7.5 so I ordered both sizes. The 7 feels tight so it has to be the 7.5. These boots are cuter on the feet than by themselves, and they are warm and cushy inside. I love the faux fur. The shape of the toe box is typical of Merrell, round and roomy, but the heel box is a bit too roomy/wide that my heels are moving around too much. I think that's probably why the shaft is rubbing my outer ankle bones so much. Really want to love them, since waterproof winters boots without hideous laces are very hard to find, but they have to go back.

These boots are properly fit for winter wearing, sized to fit a winter sock. They feel warm and comfortable straight out of the box. My only beef is that they look like a boot not a pricey boot and I've sat here obsessing over whether I want to keep them or not, because I don't think they're a great value style wise, though performance wise they feel good. They are "leaner" in person than they look in the photo and that may be some of it....for the cost I want more than a warm ankle boot, which is what these seem to be. Detailing doesn't match the price but I think the performance will. All in all, the best sized winter boot I've found thus far. So many don't have room for decently thick socks, toe wiggle etc that is essential for keeping feet warm.

Super-cute boots, but I had enormous trouble getting my right foot into the boot... and I bought these zip-booties for ease of dressing. So sadly, back they go.

I am enjoying these new Merrell Decora Chant boots very much! I was looking for a nice light weight, waterproof boot with extra grip type sole that was low profile and not as clunky as my Sorel's. This boot was very comfortable for walking all day with good cushion and support. Has comfortable lining for warmth too. Can dress them up or down. These fit comfortably at a 1/2 size larger than my normal boot size.

I bought my wife an older version of these and she loved them to death but it was time for them to be replaced. So I got her this new pair for Christmas. She loves the style and comfort although I will say that the old version had Thinsulate and these are quite a bit thinner. Still, no complaints about cold feet. We live in Colorado, so the weather here may be more mild then in other parts of the States. One word of caution (which is why I am writing this), she normally wears a size 8 and we had to return them for an 8.5. The old Merrells were a size 8 so I thought they would fit the same. When I held the new boots next to the old ones, they physically looked much smaller (most likely due to the newer insulation not being as bulky as the Thinsulate). Anyway, make sure they fit well with a good pair of socks and they should keep your feet plenty warm and stylish. By the way, remember these are waterproof if comparing them to something along the lines of Uggs which are not. You can stomp through the snow with these and your feet will remain dry.

I was in desperate need of warm boots for a trip to Vermont so order these in two sizes, based on reviews I'd read, and the Dewbrook Zip in a size 8. I love these boots! I like that they are taller than the Dewbrook and they have a little pizzaz (if snowboots can have pizzaz!). The 8 (my usual size) was a perfect fit with thick socks so they may run a tad big. I haven't worn them anywhere but around the house yet but I'm happy so far!

I am very happy with these boots. They provide good traction, warmth and they look terrific. Not clumsy like some styles. I ordered half a size up because I plan to wear warm socks. My teenage granddaughter likes them also!

Loved them right out of the box. I'm a realtor in Houston and needed something for those rainy days. They are so comfortable! It feels like I'm walking on 2 little memory foam mattresses. Wore them for 12 hours straight the first day. Got loads of compliments! Not much works with my aching feet, but these were a winner. Wore them again yesterday and it wasn't even raining....just bc they were comfy, just like all my Merrells are.

Awesome. Stylish and comfortable. Good grip; zipper is quality and easy to pull. Waterproof. Warm and nice walking boot - good arch support. Perfect for Chicago winters. I got the gray. I'm an 8.5 and got the 8.5 - tried on with a thick winter sock and the fit is perfect. I wouldn't go up a size - stick to your regular.

These are amazing boots! I tried so many boots looking for comfort, warmth, support, shock absorption, quality and waterproof. These boots have it all plus the convenience of a slip on. I use them daily for errands and four mile walks in the snow. The traction is average and not great on ice, but I did not find any boot that really gripped on ice. I have both lower back and neck issues, so I am always looking for shoes with good shock absorption and these have it. I am using an orthotic for a little extra support. I only started wearing them this season, but so far, they keep my feet warm and dry. I absolutely recommend them!

I wear a size 10, so I wanted a good pair of snow boots that weren't bulky. These fit the bill perfectly. They are really nice looking in person. I love the combo of brown and black! I've gotten compliments from both strangers and my husband! The only drawback, which I discovered two days ago, when I wore them in real life snow - the shaft height is a little short. Snow somehow kept getting in the back of the boot and I had to scoop it out. I'd say these are great city boots, maybe not for someone who lives in an area where they have to walk through piles of snow. Also, they are very warm. Was 11 degrees yesterday and my feet were toasty.

These are awesome boots! They are incredibly comfortable and toasty warm. I wore them in a light, cold rain recently and did a fair amount of walking around all day. They were perfect. I tucked my jeans into them and wore with a pair of lightweight wool socks. Excellent fit right out of the box and no breaking in required. They are beautifully made and the buckle detailing adds fun style. I absolutely love these boots! I am so pleased. I felt good in them all day.

I purchased these for my 16 year old granddaughter who lives in northern Wisconsin. She picked them out because of the other reviews, they were warm...and yet stylish. Her words...not mine. She received them and loves them.

Beautiful well made boots. Even more stunning in person. Great tread, very comfortable. I would choose to order a half size larger then you wear because they run a little small. I had to send my regular size back, they fit too snug- for a half size bigger which made all the difference. Also if you have a wide foot i would suggest looking for a wider boot.
