User Review: Merrell Ridgeline
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $89-ebay
- Like wearing nothing at all
- Difficult to roll ankle
- Grips well on dry surface
- Slips VERY easily on smooth surfaces
- They can get a little hot inside
These are my first Merrell boots and I shopped for the Ridgeline specific. I must say this boot suprised me in several ways. First, they are very light, almost like wearing nothing at all. Second, they are very waterproof but at a cost, it gets warm/hot inside after a while. Third, the Vibram material sticks well to dry surfaces.
So I will get right to it, these are kick a## boots on DRY SURFACE. If you do any creek or river trails be ready to slip frequently. Slick logs, non-porous wet rock or anything with algae will pose problems. I really expected more from these boots. I have decided that these will be dry surface boots for me.
My advice, buy something with Gore-tex and consider other sole options. I don't want to shoot down the Vibram, because I can't say if it's that or just the Ridgeline's tread pattern.
