Out of the box, these boots felt like "slippers" ... super comfortable, cushioned and supportive. They must be good - after just three day hikes, these boots carried me through the West Coast Trail with a 60-70 pound pack (and not a blister to show for it). (I started out with 60 pounds, and ended up with 70 ... believe it!)
I would highly recommend these boots to anyone 175 pounds and under who likes supportive boots, yet doesn't want to be weighed down. The heel contains shock absorption, similar to a running shoe. Despite poorer comments about other Merrell hikers, this model is superb! The double tongue is very comfy. The boots are waterproof to ankle height. If you need more protection from water, do what I did and buy some Sealskinz. This is my third pair of Merrells - and not my last!
