I have had these boots for 2 years now, do a lot of outdoor walking in rough terrain. They are durable, light, excellent. Not for a beginner climber or even a hiker. Need to get use to the no flex ankle at first. Overall a great boot with awesome waterproofing..

Merrell made the Men's Expedition Mountaineering Boots with a close-fitting waterproof leather upper, so you get weather-blocking performance without a lot of bulk. These stiff boots' Vibram Expedition sole has deep lugs for grippy traction on snow, and high-traction rubber at the toe adds leverage on dicey terrain. A mesh and Outlast layer manages moisture as you heat up on the route, and the Expedition Mountaineering Boots' stainless steel double-hook lacing system provides a tight, secure fit. The shock-absorbing footbed on these crampon-compatible Expedition Boots helps reduce fatigue on hardcore climbs.
