I need to get a new pair of hiking boots and am looking at the Merrell MQM Ace Mid waterproof hiking boots. I am wondering if these are true to size or if they run large or small?
@Coffroth thanks for reaching out! We have found that, depending on the style, Merrell shoes and boots run either true to size or sometimes a little short. We often recommend sizing up 1/2 size, especially if you're between sizes, to accommodate their sizing, plus socks, insoles (as applicable) and and feet swelling that may occur while hiking. Hope this helps!
My wife loves Merrells and has owned many pairs. She has a small heel which slips in many other brand shoes. She normally wears 8.5 but wears a 9.5 in Merrells to get the length she needs. Hope this helps.
