by fromPoorly made I bought these for my wife for Xmas. She was very happy with the look and fit but the button fell off the back within 48 hours.

by fromFell apart Initially I loved these boots, but the buttons fell off and the zipper broke. Merrell did not cover these things under their warranty. This is the second pair of Merrell's that have fallen apart on me (and I'm not doing anything out of the ordinary--just normal, everyday stuff) Luckily, REI's customer service is much better than Merrell's, and was able to replace them with another brand of boots. Thanks REI!

by fromStylish but Slippery I LOVE the look and feel of these boots. Great with jeans, dresses, skirts and leggings. They were exactly what I was looking for to take on a trip to Europe this winter. However, in wet and icy weather, the soles are quite slippery. Also, I exchanged them once at the very beginning of my trip in New York when I noticed one button was missing. When I got to Europe, I noticed that now two buttons were missing on the new pair. Unfortunately there is no way to get them replaced while in Europe. But once I land back stateside, I will definitely look for something different. It's unfortunate though, as I really love the look of these boots.

by fromGreat for a few years Purchased in brown, these Merrell Captiva Launch boots were comfortable out of the box. My feet are a bit long, a bit wide, low-volume, and these fit great in my usual size. While I've seen twiggier ladies wear them over skinny jeans, the boots fit too close over my cyclist's calves for that. Style is great with jeans or tights and the low heel and rubber sole are very stable. Sadly, these boots just didn't hold up as I expected. The synthetic lining on the shank and heel wore through, and the leather upper looks very sad and tired; they're done after just 3 years of wear. I take good care of my leather shoes and expect better durability than I found with these boots (i.e., Lowa light hiking boots last a decade). I'd rather take time to break in a pair of boots and be able to wear them for years, but if you want quick, easy comfort and style you may be very happy with these.

by fromLoved these boots but not made well. I loved these boots but after having to take them back twice for the same reason I am done with them. The first time I had them a year before the button snapped off. I returned them less than a month ago and REI aloud me to exchange them for the same pair. Three weeks later and I find myself in the same situation, button gone and had to be returned yet again. This time I chose a different boot. The only other thing I was not impressed with was the traction. I live in a snowy and icy environment and these boots are made for holding up to inclement weather but the traction is almost non existent. I was always worried about slipping. Other than those two issues they were good boots. Sad to not have them anymore.

by fromStylish, practical, and Comfy! I had been shopping for a pair of leather boots for a couple of years. I love these boots because they are the best of everything. The leather is soft and durable. The soles have good traction, which isn't too common with stylish leather boots. I love that they are waterproof, too! The only cons I can think of are that the zippers are both on the inside of the legs. They rub occasionally, but not too frequently. Sometimes after wearing them for a whole day (I work on my feet), my feet are tired in these boots- they are pretty flat but more comfortable than most boots. It would be easy to insert arch support.

by frombeautiful and stylish These are beautiful well made boots. My first pair was not waterproof as stated, but must have been a defect because I exchanged them and this pair do fine in wet weather. My big complaint is that my feet are cold in these boots. I changed out the insole for a felt insole and that improved things a bit. I love them mostly because they look great.

by fromcomfortable These boots don't have to be broken in. I will assume because of the name brand, they will be somewhat rugged. I am planning to wear these overseas for a deployment to Afghanistan. I will not be doing any footmarching, etc, but wanted something that would be waterproof as the ground gets muddy, and I didn't want to wear "man boots". I hope they hold up, and keep my feet dry. If anything, they are a nice-looking boot.
