Merrell Continuum

Wish you can see the broken rubber upper of the shoe. It is a real waste of my money. Full review

Merrell Continuum

I spent over $100 on Merrell Polartec Continuum boots about 5 years ago. They were kept in a temperature-controlled home, in a closet, and only worn once or twice per year. I am having the exact same problem as a few other folks here. The toe cap has split, right where the toes naturally bend. The material used at that part of the boot is of cheap quality right where the most stress is. I am VERY disappointed. I called Merrell, only to have them say that their warranty is only good for one year. Full review

Merrell Continuum

Under 5 months old and falling apart. And no response from Merrell. Under 5 months old and falling apart. Full review

Ozark Trail Shoe

These are as cheap as they get, and you get what you pay for. Save your feet. Full review

Salomon X Ultra 3 GTX

These low hikers were an upgrade from Salomon's XA Pro 3D trail running shoes for me that was well worth the extra investment. The shoe provides excellent support and foot protection for a lightweight shoe, and waterproofing has proved to be durable. Grippy soles showed a fair bit of wear after 18 months, and potential buyers should note the speed lacing system. A great all-around light hiking shoe. You will note that this review looks at two pair of this shoe side-by-side. That is because the midsole… Full review

Hilly Hiker

Cheap n' cheerful yet fit for purpose, actually amazingly so. I even found one ultra runner that was wearing them and had had them for three months and thought them a great value as an all round shoe. I had to replace shoes that were worn out and my second pair had to be all round, everyday, go-to shoes. First choice were replacement Merrells for serious work, the second pair were found in a bargain big box company shop called No 1 Shoes.  I chose a pair of shoes recommended by the senior staff… Full review

Merrell MQM Flex 2

I prefer the MQM Flex trail runners for three-season hiking, I have several different styles of Merrell shoes. I find the MQM Flex very comfortable and light. They are my go-to hiking shoe. I also wear them daily throughout the day everywhere. My granddaughter is a big MQM fan too and wears them while playing soccer and other sports. MQM Flex shoes are trail magic to my feet. I don't wear the Gore-tex model or have a pair as I don't hike in snow and prefer the breathability of the MQM Flex shoe. Full review

Danner Trail 2650

The Danner Trail 2650s are a great all-purpose trail shoe that handles a variety of trails and terrain with ease, are comfortable enough to wear all day, and get plenty of positive comments for their good looks. With tons of options available in both men’s and women’s sizes, as well as different leather options, there is a color and configuration for just about everyone. Conditions: For the past two months in the warm and wet spring and early summer, I’ve worn the Danner Trail 2650’s (named… Full review

Lowa Innox Pro Lo

The Lowa Innox Pro Lo is a high quality hiking shoe that has a padded upper that feels like a sneaker, yet still provides under-foot feel when hiking on unstable terrain. This highly breathable and lightweight low-top (GTX/waterproof version also available) is stylish enough for everyday use, and therefore is ideal for both trail as well as town use. This trail shoe suits the fast packer/speed hiker/trail runner, as well as a backpacker carrying a substantial load. Photo Credit: D. Jankovic Lowa’s… Full review
