User Review: Merrell Men's Switchback Gore-Tex
I bought these boots and wore them around town for a couple of days to start breaking them in. I took them on their first hike on moderate terrain and found them to severely rub the back of my heels on uphill climbs. The worst part of all is the materials and construction of these boots. I had mine decently tight to hold my foot, and the shoelace ripped though the metal mount at there different locations. Whether I had the laces too tight or not, THIS SHOULD NEVER HAPPEN in a pair of boots. I will never buy another pair of Merrells after this experience.
