These don't last!
Usually, I love Merrell Hiking boots. With my last pair I hiked the grand canyon three times! This pair has been a tremendous disappointment only because after 3 weeks of daily use as a K9 Handler the right boot inside toe started ripping, stitching is coming out and had to use Shoe Goo to repair th...

Anyone has experience with these Tempo Flex Waterproof Hiking Trainer Boots from keen? Is it a good beginner boot for camping/hiking?
I hiked over 500 miles of the AT this year and I reccommend Merrell Moab's. They make waterproof and not. It is hands down the most comfortable hiking shoe I have ever worn.

Best Hiking Boots of 2022 - GearLab
The Merrell Moab 2 Mid Waterproof is a comfortable and affordable hiking boot that feels good right out of the box. Testers were blister-free over dozens of miles, and the arch support is some of the best in the category. The insole and EVA midsole provide excellent cushioning, and the padded tongue...

Poor durability. Extremely poor durability.
I have a pair of these I purchased a year ago from a sporting goods store. They proved to be very durable and comfortable but a bit on the small side. In those I had hiked well over 400 miles and perhaps worn 50% off the tread. Other than them being a bit small, fit and construction was stellar. I r...

CAUTION: NOT Waterproof. Sole Separation in under 100 miles.
NOT waterproof. I hiked about 40 miles around the Teton Crest Trail when it was raining on and off, and this boot gets flooded within 2-3 hours. I had wet feet and socks all 5 days on the trail and it was miserable. To top it all off, the outer sole has separated from the rest of the boot after less...

I own a pair of Merrell Moab waterproof boots that up until recently have performed well on all of the hikes I've done - until I took them to the Tetons and Yellowstone last week, and came to the realization that the foot bed is *way* too hard and unforgiving for comfort on anything remotely hard or rocky for prolonged periods (at least on my feet). I live in the Midwest and most of my hikes have been on relatively forested, "squishy" trails, so I hadn't experienced much of this discomfort before.

Only so-so water resistance. Very comfortable.
Size: I wear 10.5 or 11 depending on the brand, and these are definitely 11 on my foot. Similar sizing to Nike sneakers. If you're between two sizes, I would recommend the larger. They are snug but not tight around the foot, and the toe box is big enough. Spot on. Comfort: I don't have a ton of expe...

These things kick butt. I work in the rain a lot, and need something that can hold up to being rained on for like 8+ hours non stop while stepping in water and all the rest. These things have gotten so wet I could swear they would let water through but they have not yet. I also ride my motorcycle wi...

I have Merrell hiking boots (I think the Moab 2 Mid Boots) that I like but am looking into trail runners for a long distance hike. I always see everyone talking about Altras but I’m not interested in the zero drop and figure I may be more comfortable with Merrell since it’s what I’m used to.

Received potentially counterfeit product.
Product I received was likely counterfeit. Instead of the "M Dry Select" metal gem that should've been sewn into each boot, it only said "waterproof". I called Merrell customer support upon seeing this, and they confirmed that their waterproof shoes should always have "M Dry Select" stitched to the ...
