This boot wears like a DREAM - no break in - great all around support. Support means it doesn't feel "light" - and yet as a true Merrell, it is light - only 2 oz. more than the style that looks more like a sneaker. My feet and heels are narrow and with thick socks the boots are still perfect - no rubbing after a couple of miles first time out of the box. THEY RUN SMALL -I ordered a 1/2 size larger than my usual size (8) and had to return them for a 9. Great traction and survived rain and puddle test - Merrell's have never failed a waterproof test before, so I'm certain these will meet my expectations. I've worn Vasque and Danner and while these are firm (great support for your ankles and instep) they are much lighter and the footbed it amazing.
