Merrell Proterra Vim Mid Sport Hiking Boots - Women'sis rated4.5out of5by2.
Rated5out of5byfromHot & Sweaty Feet NO MORE!!I'm going to just state the simple fact about these shoes......AWESOME!! I've been a fan of Merrell for years & decided to give these a try. How to compare? Well....they are definitely not your average hiking boot......very lightweight, cool, quick drying (not waterproof) & awesome ventilation. My hiking boots & Keen sandals have a tendency to get my feet hot & sweaty on summer days so these are a nice cool alternative. If you plan on using these for quick day hikes or short backpack trips (like I do) these would be ideal. I wouldn't put any more than a 20 lb load on them unless you want to start feeling some leg pain. Even though I think these shoes are one of the best, there are a few things to consider which may not make them ideal for everyone. First, ankle support is pretty minimal. Shoes do feel kind of big at first & I debated about exchanging for smaller size, but in the end I was eager to try & kept my 10's. I'm glad I stuck with my usual 10's, keep in mind your feet will expand slightly when they get hot. Lastly.......It may just be me & I kick debris up a lot or else it's the "down to Earth" barefoot feel but I have a tendency to get a lot of trail debris inside these shoes. Nothing to override the pros but the presence of debris can be felt.

Rated4out of5byfromLots of room for my toes!I use these shoes for hiking and some trail running. I love that I have finally found a shoe with enough room in the toe box to accommodate my toes as they spread out when I take a step. I wish they came in narrow sizes as they are still to wide in the heel.
