Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not slip proof but still pretty good I live in the midwest US and have a phobia of ice. I saw promotional info for this product but no previous customer reviews. After bad weather around Thanksgiving left a thick coating of ice on local sidewalks, I went ahead and bought these to try out. These are quite warm although not particularly attractive. I got 'ash' (white with gray) and the gray stripe makes the boots look a bit more like a typical rubber bottom rain/snow boots and a little less like a high tech cutting edge product. I would rate these about 8 out of 10 on ice. I think they have better traction than any other standard hiking or snow boot I own. However on a thick sheet of smooth ice, slipping and sliding is still very possible. However, so is walking - with care - and that is not the case with many types of footwear. For slushy surfaces, partially iced areas, and other snow/ice mixes, I have found these to be very stable. They are also quite warm and have kept my feet really dry even walking in several inches of snow. I typically wear a 7 and these fit true to size with enough space to wear a medium to thick wool sock underneath. For me this is not the solution to all icy surfaces, but to their credit, Merrell includes a tag with some disclaimers and warnings regarding limitations and the need to take care. There is also a warning about the potential for inside surface damage but I've personally worn them on a low carpet with no obvious damage (but maybe I just don't see it yet). I feel a lot more stable with these than without but I am still going to watch where I'm going!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Value Boots Purchased the boots when they were on sale for my daughter, and she loves them. The real test will come shortly, but after wearing them for casual wear she is very happy with the boots.

My feet sweat. The problem I have with "fur" boots is that I can't find a pair that will keep my feet warm without creating/wicking sweat away. Do these fill the bill? THANKS!!!

Asked by: mrselmerfudd
These boots have both insulation and a waterproof/breathable membrane. It is entirely possible that your feet will sweat inside these as well. You might consider merino wool socks. Merino wool does a great job at wicking moisture.

Hello, I live in a neighborhood paved with brick. It is slick in rain and nearly impossible to walk on in snow. Would the Vibram technology help with grip on brick pavers?

Asked by: colkreiss
If the brick is just wet, moss or slime covered, these boots will not provide any more traction than any other boot. The Arctic Grip technology from Vibram is specifically for ice and snow. If the bricks are ice or snow covered, then these boots will provide significant differences in stability and grip.

Which has the better arch support Aurora 6 or Moab FST?

Asked by: WTigger
The Moab FST has a slightly stiffer shank and will provide more overall support.

I deliver for Fedex I'm looking for something warm and slip proof on ice! I spend up to 10 hours treading through snow and I've already slipped on ice and broke my ankle once.. What would you recommend?

Asked by: Jessica9382
These boots are a great choice for you. They are insulated with Thinsulate™ insulation so they are very warm, and they have Vibram® Arctic Grip outsoles to prevent you from slipping on ice.

I went into the REI store and they measured me at a size 9, I have long toes and wanted to know if I should order a size 9.5 or 10. I have the Ashland Vee Mid Boots in a size 9.5, fits fine. I have the Bogs Cassir in a 9.5 and my foot slides.

Asked by: shelly
If your feet were measured with a brannock device as a size 9, we suggest you choose a size 9 in these Merrell boots.

I have a narrow heel and a wide foot. Would this boot be a good fit for me?

Asked by: Cydd
Merrell footwear tends to have a slightly roomier fit than other brands, however we are not offering these boots in a true wide size. It's hard to know if these boots will be a good fit for you based on this limited information.

Would these work for snowshoeing? How much hiking is recommended for them as well? Thanks!

Asked by: trailrunner80
Yes, this shoe is a smart option for shorter snowshoeing excursions of a few miles. They offer enough rigidity and support for an afternoon adventure.
