Price Paid: $100
The best hiking shoes whatever I had. They are perfect for 20 km of challenging trail or for urban walking.
I’m really upset, because Merrell discontinued this model.
Use: rough trail hiking
Break-in Period: long breakin period. Never a blister but hard and inflexible.
Weight: light enough to enjoy wearing
Price Paid: $45
These hikers are the best. The ankle support and rugged sole support and protect your feet in the worst conditions. They take awhile to break in but it's worth it. I wore these boots occasionally about a year before I started hiking in them. Now two years, and many miles, later they are still going strong. Their grip in mud and slippery hills is unrivaled. I'm a real Merrell convert and have a pair for every occasion. These are so comfortable that I was looking for a second pair to keep nice for casual wear.
Materials: leather, plastic, rubber
Use: hiking, backpacking, everday use
Break-in Period: 1 month, on and off
Price Paid: about $70 on sale
I have had these shoes for three years. I originally bought them for backpacking in the mountains. They break in very fast and are very comfortable. I wore them in the mountains and many days after. The only problem I had was the tread wear is fairly fast. As of now, three years later, they are pretty much worn down. Other then that they are great. The materials they are made out of are very durable and do not skuff or rip easily.
Break-in Period: minimal
Price Paid: $80
I've absolutely loved these shoes from day 1. I actually getting ready to buy my second pair. These shoe are very comfortable long walk or the short trac up a hill. I would highly recommend these shoes.
