Targhee II

rated 1 of 5 stars Soles started falling to pieces after only a month or so. This is my second pair of Targhee IIs. My first pair were worn most days for 2-3 years, including much wilderness hiking as well as city walking. I ended up replacing them when the wear on the heal became obvious—they were great. The new pair are at the other end of the spectrum as far as quality. It seems that the glue used to hold the layers of the sole together was substandard. Part of the tread started peeling away after only a few… Full review

Targhee EXP Waterproof Mid

rated 4 of 5 stars I really like these boots. I agree totally that they are only water resistant. If it pours all day (even with gaiters) the boots will start to take water. You will also feel hard sharp rocks under your feet when you have a heavy load. Great grip and super comfy. Could walk for weeks with these. Very durable and warm and cozy. They do get hot in the summer. Cheers. Full review

Voyageur Mid

rated 3 of 5 stars Lightweight, not waterproof, soles separate. After ditching Merrell because they turned to very poor quality, I switched to Keen.

rated 1.5 of 5 stars I had similar issues with these sandals last summer. I've barely worn them since. My biggest issue is the blisters caused by the cordage that makes contact with the skin.

The "shock-cordage" that makes up the 'body' is brutal on bare skin. Full review


rated 0.5 of 5 stars Bought a pair wore them 3 times a have them away. Parachord is ment to be on a persons foot caused blisters and burns on feet. If your feet get wet from sweat or crossing a stream these aren’t the shoes to have on. will not recommend for anyone but a couch potato. The guy I gave mine to has since given them to someone else.
