This is the most comfortable and sure fitting hiking shoe that I have used on the AT. No slippage at the heel and the comfort is above any other shoe or boot I have used.

I purchased these shoes by Merrell to continue my hiking of the Appalachian Trail this year. Once on the trail, I was so amazed with the comfort and fit of the shoe.

There was no slippage of the heel as I moved along the uneven trail caused by numerous rocks and roots. This was so important to prevent blisters which can slow down or even stop a hike. They are lightweight, dry and easy to put on and remove. The lacing is simple and easy for quick removal during the numerous times I break during a day's hike. After hiking in these shoes by Merrell.

I have found a shoe that is comfortable, fits snugly and leaves my feet in great shape after a long day's hike, ready for the next day!
