User Review: Merrell Men's Radius Mid Waterproof
Price Paid: $120
I like Merrell for the fit for me. I bought a pair and wore out the cloth eyelet in a few months. The disappointing part of the boot is that the eyelet rips from normal stress and wear from tightening the laces.
I bought a second pair thinking that it was a defect but I just wore out the second pair the same way after three months. Top eyelet rips and the lace frays on the top hook and becomes "stringy". A bit disappointing as they are comfortable and really keep your feet dry. I wear them for work on tundra and unpaved gravel road areas. I now choose metal or plastic hooks on the lacing system.
Too bad. Great boot, good price, poor lacing system.
