I needed an insulated, waterproof boot to watch my son downhill race. There were two choices. I purchased both: this pair and one called Lowa Solden. Though I prefer the Lowa over the Merrell. Both boots do what is said they will do. I just found the Lowa more supportive for my ankles and since I have Lupus, that made the difference in the rating. The Lowa were lighter than the Merrell which was also important to me. I kept both pairs since both fit my criteria and price range.

I always wear a womens size 8. I ordered and 8 and can't get them on! The ankle area is really tight. I am unsure if I could get them on if they were a bigger size...??
The style and quality is so pretty, as is typical for Merrell. They should prob. be made with a size zipper. I am bummed they don't work, for such a great price. I am mailing them back.
(I have a very narrow, skinny foot, and read a review of someone with similar that had no issues getting them on.... I wonder if they are not all made the same?)

Once I got them on they were comfortable, but they are very narrow around the ankle and tough to get into. I returned them for that reason. I want to be able to get in them without a lot of effort. They seemed well made.

I was really disappointed in the fit and size of these boots. I bought them in a 1/2 size bigger than what I usually wear and they did not fit. I returned them for a full size bigger and still did not fit. I had to return those.

After reading reviews of this boot, I ordered a size larger and had to send them back. They are true to size,but made for narrow feet. My foot slipped right in! Usually wear a 6, ordered a 6.5 and they are perfect w thick socks.

After reading many negative reviews, I took my chances ordering these boots. I have a very high arch, and I was leery about sizing. However, I ordered my regular size 8, I order that size for all my shoes, boots, running shoes, etc., and they fit fine. I can pull the boots on/off without too much effort. I love not having to deal with laces, and these boots are warm, comfortable, and have good traction. I am very pleased with my purchase. Also, I wear a thin sock with these boots, and it took a few wears only of these boots to break them in. I did not experience any discomfort during the break-in period, either. Overall, I like these boots, and I would buy them again!

These would be awesome boots, as far as the footbed, arch support, and comfort. however, the top opening is so narrow it is almost impossible to get your foot into the boot. I wear a size 6 and I tried to get my foot into a size 7 and it was almost impossible to pull the boot on. My friend wears a 6 wide and she could not get the 7 boot on her foot. Big disappointment!
