Continuum

rated 0.5 of 5 stars The boots initially were exactly what I expected, great for wet snow. I only ever wore them in snow. I got them out last year and found the outer molded shell uppers were cracking and splitting in all the points that flex when you walk and the triple sewn skirt between the upper and the lace eyelets were separating from the upper shell. I called Merrell about the performance of these $100 plus boots to see if they would do anything about it and Dave in customer service said "No. Product is outside… Full review

Continuum

rated 0.5 of 5 stars I bought these 3.5 years ago to use on occasional fishing and hunting trips. After limited use and storing them clean and dry in a dark closet, the tops just completely disintegrated. I feel like I got very limited use from these before they completely fell apart. I needed waterproof boots for cold weather fishing trips and very limited hunting—five or six trips per year. When I purchased these, I was happy with them. They filled the bill of being pretty comfortable boots I could wear in wet conditions… Full review

Kopec Hiking Shoes

rated 5 of 5 stars This is the most comfortable and sure fitting hiking shoe that I have used on the AT. No slippage at the heel and the comfort is above any other shoe or boot I have used. I purchased these shoes by Merrell to continue my hiking of the Appalachian Trail this year. Once on the trail, I was so amazed with the comfort and fit of the shoe. There was no slippage of the heel as I moved along the uneven trail caused by numerous rocks and roots. This was so important to prevent blisters which can slow down… Full review

Moab Ventilator Mid

rated 3.5 of 5 stars Moab Ventilator Mids are very comfortable, relatively wear resistant, provide decent foot support, and traction, and dry out quickly. These traits are somewhat offset by the quality of construction, lack of strong ankle support for a mid-height boot, average insoles (typical for many brands), limited lacing options, and potential long term durability issues. They are a decent hybrid between waterproof boots and quick-drying trail runners for those transitioning to lightweight footwear or wanting… Full review

Moab 2 Mid Gore-Tex

rated 1 of 5 stars was looking for a nice waterproof day hiker / weekend trip boot. Great looks, good comfort, reputable brand. However, terrible quality, and even worse customer service. Bought these from Gander Mountain for use on local hikes and some short 3-4 nighters. Love the look and feel of these—fairly lightweight for a hiker this size, and the waterproof claim is well-earned. But the praise stops there. Sadly, these boots have been to the shoe repair shop three times. The very first time I pulled them… Full review
