Rated 1 out of 5 by from SHOES FELL APART IN 60 MILES Hi I bought these shoes a few months ago. I have hiked maybe 6 times with them. Each time I hiked about 10 miles. So after a total of about 60 miles of hiking the shoes completely separated. The glue looks like it became useless and the sole started peeling off.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extremely Comfortable These shoes are flexible, breathable, supportive and most importantly, comfortable. They were purchased to replace some older running shoes used to go on long walks with the family on non-technical trails. However, I am sure these shoes will handle whatever terrain you encounter with ease.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smiles for miles I purchased these in January as I am trying to get more out of hiking and to survive more technical/difficult trails. I have used them for a guess of 30-40 miles so they probably aren't even "broken in." Not that it matters because I have never had a blister or chafing even when splashing through streams and puddles. They have incredible grip as I am able to scale rocks and such with complete confidence in my footwear but maybe not myself. I cannot and probably will not be disappointed in these. The next excursion for these will be Palo Duro Canyon this next week.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable right from the first wear I bought these light weight hiking shoes which are a cross between a tennis shoe and a hiking shoe. I wore them 12 hours the first day, hiking the Pacific Rim Trail and never had to change my shoes. No blisters or sore feet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Water tight and carries a load well I really like these shoes, I put on my pack to eat for a 7 day trip and have excellent foot comfort. I've found with other shoes my toes bung when loaded up with a 40lbs bag. Theses shoes seem to be really water resistant, I went into some partial snow mud conditions and my foot stayed dry. Super wet slushy snow to so I'm very pleased. I've also got extra sweaty feet, currently my feet have stayed cooler and dryer from that too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GRAND CANYON PROVEN Merrell has proven themselves to me multiple times that they know how to make a good shoe. I had zero traction issues on the steep trails when hiking the grand canyon and the giant mesh panels allowed my feet to breath exceptionally well while also keeping dirt and debris out

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Moab FST Blue Needed another all around town/trail/city sneak to replace a salomon xa pro and this fit the bill perfectly. Vibram sole should easily outlast my salomons (which I loved) and they fit great and are equally comfortable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for warm weather hiking My foot now requires a man's hiking shoe, and the shoe dept. employee picked out the best possible one and got the best fit I've ever had. These shoes have great suppport and treads.

Struggling to decide between these and the Salomon XA Pro 3D. I'm not a trail runner but do spend time walking on trails which is mainly what these would be for. It would be great to have a shoe that's good for casual wear also. What are the differences?

Asked by: Struggler
The Salomon shoes are designed to be a trail runner while the Merrells are designed to be a hiking shoe, so there are some slight differences in construction. The Merrells have a shank while the Salomon does not, so the Merrells have a much stiffer sole, while the Salomons have a more flexible sole that is better for running. However, they are both very similar in weight. If you are going to be primarily walking in the shoe and not running, the Merrells are probably a better choice.

Do I need to order a size up for the Wide version?

Asked by: LandCruiser
If you need a wider shoe, we recommend ordering the wide version of your normal shoe size. You do not need to size up in length if you just want a wider size.
