User Review: Merrell Chameleon 3 Stretch
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $120
I bought these shoes to take on a 2 month long trip hiking England, Scotland, and Wales. Before I left the USA I had already exchanged one pair of these because the toe caps were falling away from the shoes. I have had the new shoes for just over a year and a half and they are absolutely trashed.
- Terrible quality
The elastic laces broke on both shoes, the leather sides are split and cracking allowing copious amounts of water in, and the Vibram soles, which i usually stand behind, utterly are worn to nubs. The antimicrobial soles are worn through.
Overall, I stand behind all of Merrell's outdoor gear, but I will never be buying any more merchandise from this company due to the terrible longevity of these shoes. If i spend $120 on a pair of boots or shoes I want them to last at least 2-3 years before I have to consider replacing.
