User Review: Merrell Wilderness
Break-in Period: 5-10 miles
Price Paid: $235
I have very narrow low volume feet so my search for a good hiking boot was an exhausting one. I tried on Vasque, Fabiono, and Scarpa all in narrows. None fit. Finally after about a month wait my special ordered Merrell Wilderness arrived. These boots were pretty comfy right out of the box but felt even better after about 10 miles of trail hiking.
I read some reviews in which people say that they will fall apart after about a year and I hope this is not true because this was the ONLY boot I could find that fit me. A friend of mine has had his for several years and many hundreds of miles and has only had them resoled once. So I'm optimistic and I would recommend to anyone with a narrow foot that they check these out.
