Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these boots I have been trying to find boots above the ankle for over a year. I could not find any that were comfortable or didn't cause blisters on my heels. I had resorted to low top Merrells for the last few years. I bought these and admit that i didn't take them out of the box once until my recent trip to Canadian Rockies. I was prepared for painful breaking in and even brought moleskin, duct tape and second skin. Well, we hiked 4 days and I never had any issue!! I will say I have narrow feet, and particularly narrow heels and ankles. I did put the Superfeet insoles in as soon as i bought them so I'm sure that helped. I wear an 8.5 in street shoes and 9 in most sneakers and I got a 9 in these.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable and functional These boots are light and comfortable and waterproof up to the ankle. They do run a little small. I normally wear a 9 1/2, so I usually buy 10 in boots and running shoes. I had to get 10 1/2 in these for the right fit. They are warm because of the waterproof functionality, so I wore them in the warmer winter months for outings.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Didn't need to break them in! Purchased for an upcoming week-long camping trip at Colorado Bend and Palo Duro Canyon in Texas. I probably ended up hiking: ~8.5 miles the first day wearing them. Some short jaunts of steep climbs, but not very difficult trails. Feet felt great at the end of the day, but I'm glad it was easy terrain to make sure they felt good and break in if necessary (it wasn't). ~4.5 miles the second day. This day included shallow river crossings at Colorado Bend, and my feet stayed completely dry. Probably up to the bottom lace was fully submerged in water, and I felt nothing! ~6 miles the fourth day. Majority flat desert walking of the Lighthouse Trail at Palo Duro, but did the additional climbing part and potentially unadvised bouldering to the top of the adjacent formation. Traction on these shoes is excellent! ~5 miles fifth day. Rockier terrain, shoes still performed up to my expectations! Never too hot (My feet have never had a sweating problem in any shoes I've ever owned, though), no blisters, good traction, waterproof, and held up to cactus-scuffs well.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Comfy but... So comfy but at the end of a wet day the toes of my socks are soaked! Can't recommend this pair of shoes. These are a miss, Merrell.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extremely Comfortable Bought this a few months before my spring break trip to Zion. Spent maybe 10-15 days breaking them in over a month. The boots were perfect for my week at Zion. We hiked 4-6 hours a day and I only got a blister on our last day which was a 14 mile hike. Would buy these all over again if I had the opportunity!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from comfortable but not durable Comfortable, without a break in period needed, but mesh along the side and seams at the toe tore after a year and the boot is no longer waterproof.

What type of socks do you recommend wearing with these boots? Any and all suggestions and advice welcome (brands, blends, styles, etc)!! Thank you in advance! :)

Asked by: Penny Lane
​Merino wool socks are a great choice for use with these boots. Merino wool is great for wicking moisture, breathability and temperature regulation. Smartwool and Darn Tough both good choices for brands.

Would these be supportive enough for a weekend of backpacking or are they mostly meant for day hikes? Thanks!

Asked by: mrsSkidmoor
For a quick weekend backpack trip these boots could work just fine, so long as your pack is not overly heavy and you do not require extra support. Excessive use backpacking will cause these boots to deteriorate faster than normal. If you require extra support for carrying weight or because of a foot condition, you should consider a different pair of boots.

How would these do on the Tour du Monr Blanc in June?

Asked by: JessGutlay
These boots are very comfortable and would be a good choice for long days covering long miles. However, if you will be carrying a heavy pack, you may want to consider a backpacking boot instead as they offer much more support:
