Merrell Refuge Core Mid Hiking Boots - Waterproof (For Men)
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.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Roller Man from Nashville IN on Wednesday, October 10, 2012Only problem with the two pair I bought is the laces seem to come loosened when on rough terrain or just every day walking. First pair I recieved were not water proof at all, they were soak the first time I walked through wet grass. I called, returned them, and they sent me a new pair that are good and water proof as advertised. I expect a lot out of my foorware as I'm out in the elements everyday, we'll see how longterm durable they are, if they fall apart after a year like other high priced boots I've purchased. I normally wear 11 had to return for size 11.5 USA

Verified Buyer Reviewed by dab from gridley,ca. on Thursday, October 4, 2012Work in dusty conditions and occasionally bike on trails, then out for refreshment.Multi use athletic boot/shoe.Problem is that tho has ample tongue padding,needs more width so as to tuck in,achieving more of a closed system prior to lace-up- top sides of socks get dirty.

Verified Buyer Reviewed by MNIAW from SSNY on Tuesday, October 2, 2012I have owned several different models of Merrell footwear. These are the first that didn't fit like the others. They're listed as a 10.5 with a Euro size of 44.5 and a UK size of 10; I was worried they would be too big, but in fact, they are on the small side. Not too tight or narrow, but definitely not 10.5 US, 10 UK, or 44.5 Euro in length. I have used them only once so far, an all day hiking/working day on the mountain at Magic Mountain Ski Area. My feet hurt at the end of the day because of the length. I'll keep them because they're too worn to return and hope they stretch out a little bit.
- Best Uses: Light hiking
- Cons: Fit is a little off
- Pros: Decent support, Good Traction In The Wet, Lightweight

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Tony - Photographer from Fullerton, CA USA on Tuesday, September 25, 2012Will use them in my travel in Europe. I have worn the boot daily and the fit is comfortable. I order the boots 1 1/2 size larger and the size was perfect.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by The city hiker from Hoboken, NJ on Monday, September 24, 2012Good boots, but sized extremely small. I had to return them TWICE, and ended up getting an entire size larger than normal. Sierra Trading Post should note that in the description.
