    Merrell Chameleon 5 Waterproof Hiking Shoes - Men's is rated 4.4667 out of 5 by 15.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Solid Shoe I used these shoes to walk the Camino de Santiago on a path that was about 320 km. I averaged 30 km a day. My feet swelled and I ended up getting blisters on my outer toes. The shoe didn't fit so well with swollen feet. Next time I would have bought half a size to a size bigger. Otherwise its a great shoe. Doesn't breathe particularly well, so next time I would have gotten the non-water proof shoes. The one time it rained wasn't worth the waterproofing... but thats a choice you'll have to make depending on your conditions.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable Shoes Comfortable shoes that lasted me over a year wearing them every day. Good waterproofing shoes that can go anywere. Very happy with these shoes and would buy another pair tomorrow.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very comfortable Tried on several competing models in store, these fit my feet the best. Often times I take a shoe home, and within a few miles they are no longer comfortable, but that is not the case here. My first outing with these was a 6.5 mile hike on moderate trails with a few rocks and stumps carrying a 30lb pack load. The shoes felt light on my feet and were very comfortable. After the hike, I wasn't in a rush to get them off, I could wear these every day. My only complaints are as follows: Sole is a little on the flexible side, but I'm a big guy carrying a heavy pack, so not so much the shoes fault. Toe room is a little on the snug side. Easy to tie these too tightly and cut off circulation.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Devil in the Details I had high hopes for the Chameleon as a replacement for my Ventilators, and to serve as an all-purpose lightweight hiker throughout SE and S. Asia this fall. My local REI did not have the shoe in stock, so I ordered from the website. Everything looked great and reflected high-quality workmanship--until I put them on. Potential buyers will note that a rubber support band has been added to the outside of the shoe for stability. However, it is anchored from inside the shoe at exactly the place where the upper boot-lace hole is located. This causes a 1/2 inch protrusion of liner fabric into the interior of the boot and, as a result, digs into both left and right ankles. Very heavy socks will help compensate somewhat, but then, because the shoe is waterproof, you end up w/ feet-on-fire. It is annoying that the designers of this boot seemed to have discounted the comfort factor--something Merrill products are usually very good at preserving--in how they haphazardly positioned the rubber support. This has been a good lesson that ordering online without examining or trying on a hiking boot is always a hit-or-miss endeavor.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Don't buy if you expect them to last If you wear them every day they will wear out in less than 6 months. Kind of like a soft car tire, great traction at speed and braking, but expect to replace them often. The waterproofing goes away fairly quickly and they start to look rough.. Customer service replaced mine because of this issue but really Merrell could do much better in the durability area!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bought my 2nd pair of Merrells. Love em. I needed new shoes for a pinched nerve in my foot, caused by arthritis. These were just the ticket, replacing a well known, nationally recognized, but worn out pair. I could not be happier with the REI service, the Merrell quality, or the fit, wear, and support.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Waterproof! These shoes are extremely comfortable from my 1/2 mile walk from parking to work location. I no longer arrive to work with wet socks on rainy days from my worn out trail running shoes. I cannot comment on their trail use as I am loyal to my lighter-weight trail-running shoes.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best shoe ever built This is my eighth shoe in the Merrell Chameleon series. They fit my feet perfectly. I add a Superfeet Arch Support and it is an amazing combination of comfort, a feeling of fitness, never having problems, durability and ease of use. It is my everyday shoe that I can go hiking in. I rarely am in other shoes. The one negative is the Vibram soles can be slippery on wet, smooth rock.
