Great water proof boots!
I have had the older version of these boots and the bottom lasted a year until it was completely worn off and had to buy new ones. I wore them every day in harsh conditions but stood up great. I am hoping these new boots will do the same. They have a great water proof seal and great tread. The only thing I am worried about is the size it runs just a snug bigger then i hoped but if you ware thicker socks they will be fine. Great boots to ware in the snow or wet environments.

LOVE THESE BOOTS
Last year we bought these boots in a department store and my husband loved these boots!! We went back this year to purchase another pair and they said they don't sell them anymore so we just bought a different pair of boots. Big mistake!!!We searched the internet and found a couple of web sites offering these boots! We went with this website because they offered a better price!! He loves these boots because they ARE waterproof,they have a nice arch,they are true to size and they last in his line of work!!

smart looking non clunky boot
I bought these boots to use at work. I am a security officer at a local hospital and i needed a boot that is waterproof and warm. We have frequent helicopter landings where we are required to stand out in all weather for an hour at a time. We also have to walk about 5 miles a day inside using only the staircases. I did not want a real heavy boot so I chose the Merrell. So far so good today was the first day I wore them in snow and slush, feet stayed crispy warm. Hope it lasts.

Great boots, order full size larger
Bought these shoes for my father so that he could take the dog out during inclement weather. They are excellent quality; my father reports that they are as waterproof as the description suggests and walking in them is a pleasure. The only downside, as the review title suggests, is that if you normally wear a size 10 - be sure to order size 11. Altrec is great for exchanges (and this is a boon for sure). The other issue he speaks of, and this is a matter of perspective (quite literally), is that the sole is quite tall and that takes a little getting used to. I think that's the nature of boots in general and an advantage in keeping your foot out of the muck, but if fear of heights is a big issue take notice.

Great looking shoe and fits very well even with wide fit. Plan to use this show for hiking and as a snow shoe. Great multipurpose design. This is my first pair of Merell shoes and will definitely buy more of their products.
