What People have said about it

  • I found these to be very comfortable shoes, also very light, but with a sturdy feel and good grips. Used them mostly for light walking trips, but i have no rain to believe that they would not prove as comfortable and sturdy on longer walks
  • Not as advertised. Not waterproof, no claim on the shoes or box that they are waterproof but Amazon seem to think so listing it in the product title. Returned which is always hassle free on Amazon. A shame as they were very comfy and a good buy otherwise.
  • Not tried them out on a walk yet but they feel comfortable and fit nicely when I wore them a few hours around the house. I like the colours and their contrast. For the price I got them at I know they will be great
  • Not quite as wide fitting as hoped. No waterproofing at all although advertised, they actually feel like sponges sucking any available moisture from the ground. When dry, their fine.
  • Nice and lightweight. I cant see how they are waterproof though as there are breathable holes in them. Overall pleased with them at this price.
  • I had these walking shoes at a real bargain during the prime flash sales. They fit perftectly and as the descrption says are waterpoof.

What People have said about it

  • I found [these shoes] to be a great all-round basic trekking shoe – for hot/cold climates, for modest terrain from hill tracks to mean streets. Decently serrated sole for rough ground; exceptionally comfortable – supportive and nicely cushioned and a good price. Go for the slightly more expensive Gore-tex version if you’re buying for wetter ground rambling in countries such as the UK.
  • I’d have paid ten times the price for shoes as comfortable as these.
  • Try these shoes for size in a shop before buying. They work out about 1.5 sizes too small for UK feet.
  • I contacted merrell and they confirmed their products are made in both China and Vietnam – the ones made in vietnam feel better
