User Review: Merrell Men's Radius Mid Waterproof
Use: rough hike with ultralight pack
Break-in Period: 3 weeks
Price Paid: $120
I bought the Radius Mid for hiking on the Appalachian Trail. After hiking up Blood Mountain, and all over GA section of the AT, these boots are fantastic. Their wet-proof design kept my feet dry, and their lightweight construction was well appreciated. The boots perform flawlessly, and are some of the most comfortable boots Ive used to date.
The boots tend to be a tad on the warm side in warmer weather, and are best suited to fall/winter hiking when the weather requires a wet-proof warmer shoe. I also tested the grip of the sole on wet river rock. It seems to grip just fine.
I wouldn't hesitate to buy these boots again.
