Closeouts. Tromp through rivers and streams, over mountains and ravines, and through forests and deserts in Merrell's Refuge Core mid waterproof hiking boots. The waterproof nubuck and suede upper keeps feet dry, and the Split Technology midsole discourages over-pronation.

I've been wearing Merrell's Moab Mid Goretex for quite a while and liked the look of the Refuge a little better. The lacing system on the Refuge gives you a little more ankle support than the Moab does so that's another good point.

Light weight comfortable no break in but not sure how long soles will last walking in desert. I did have thorn come through the sole into the bottom of my foot. But I do like these boots & have ordered another pair.
