The Merrell Thermo 6 is the hands down best hiking boot I've ever worn! The comfort is second to none. I spent a week looking all over town for my own pair after trying on a friend's. I ended up ordering from altrec.com.
After 4 hrs of hiking on my first time out with them my feet felt incredibly good. I brought my North Face slippers for around camp like I always do and found i didn't need them. I wore my Thermo 6's till it was time for bed.
I have owned several other Merrell boots and loved each of them for there comfort but the Thermo 6's are on a whole new level. I am going to buy another pair so that when I wear these out I won't be sad because I can't find them anymore, they're that great!
I have been camping/backpacking/hiking for almost 30 years and boots just don't get any better than this. they will keep your feet warm and dry on the most awful of days. The only reason for the 4.5 is that I don't give anything man-made a perfect score.
