I bought these boots in anticipation of a hitch-hiking/back packing trip through New England into Nova Scotia in November. I had been using minimalist footwear all summer (when I had to wear shoes at all) and wanted to maintain the experience. Most boots I tried had an aggressive arch and even whe... Read More

    I used these the whole winter. I was outside in the snow for an hour a couple times and my feet didn't get cold or wet. I mainly used them to walk children to and from the bus stop then found I didn't want to take them off when I got home. The reason I only gave 4 stars is because it was a workout getting them on and off even without socks (never wore socks with them). Once my feet were inside they didn't feel cramped though. I will be purchasing another pair if I can find black, I bought gray the first time.

    These boots are very flimsy. They are more like slipper socks than boots.
    I tried them out in the snow and yes they were warm but my feet had no
    support what so ever. My feet hurt for 3 days after wearing them. I am sending
    them back...I understand why they are on closeout....I am surprised Merrell would
    make such a boot.

    I love barefoot shoes and have a couple pairs of barefoot Merrell shoes, but unfortunately these boots simply aren't. They have support in the arch, they have thick soles that aren't actually any more flexible than a regular shoe, and it seems that the heel is actually lower than the toe when you're wearing them. I was really excited about these and thought they would be my waterproof boots, because regular rain boots hurt my joints, but I plan to return these in search of an actual barefoot boot. Disappointing.

    I ordered these because I wanted a non-brown boot that would keep my feet warm, and it does. I love that they are extremely LIGHT weight, I had all my friends hold them to see how light they were.

    I started wearing these as soon as they came out of the box. It is advised to wear them in small doses at first to allow yourself to adjust to the Barefoot design, but I couldn't help myself! My legs were a little sore after the first several days, but I have adjusted and they are currently my most comfortable shoes. They have kept my feet warm and dry in the PNW wet weather-- which is why I got them. My problem is generally keeping my feet warm over the course of a long day. These shoes are doing it! Even if my socks get a little damp from sweat, my feet are staying toasty warm. Very happy.

    • I think it is very true to size, if ever so slightly on the larger side but not enough to order a size down. However, there is NO removable insole.

    • For me it is true to size. However, if you do change a very thick insole, you probably have to order half a size up. but depend on how thick is your insole. Hope my answer will help you!

    • I usually wear an 8 or 8 1/2 - I got these in 8 1/2 and they fit fine, but a little snug. They are narrow, which is why they feel snug to my wide-ish feet (but not uncomfortable). I would go up 1/2 size if you are putting in a thicker insole. These are very comfortable!

    • I found it true to size in length, but narrow (potentially very narrow) foot bed. Different insoles might be a problem. Although, I like just the way the boots are. They are comfortable and warm, with a negative heel, making me wonder why you would put in a different insole that would change the barefoot feel of the boot.

    • The boot does run true to size, or did for me. I have slender feet and long toes. As for putting an insole into it, I wouldn't recommend that until you've broken the boot in. The molded footbed is minimal but feels snuggest at the arch when you first wear them. I wouldn't suggest insoles, but I would suggest good socks.

    • I would order a 1/2 size up. I have a number of Merrell products and I felt that these boots ran small, especially if you want to wear socks with them.

About Merrell

The story of Merrell boots all started with a guy named Randy Merrell, who began handcrafting leather hiking boots back in 1981, shortly after graduating from industrial shoemaking school. By the mid-80s, Randy’s boots had already gained critical acclaim before being named “best boots in the world” by Backpacker Magazine. The next decade saw the arrival of new footwear, including the ever-popular Jungle Moc, which helped launch the after-sport category. Today, Merrell hiking boots, running shoes and sneakers are still among the best on the market, always combining the newest technology, innovative designs and outstanding comfort. Whether you hike, run, walk or just appreciate high-quality shoes and boots, we’re confident that you’ll love Merrell shoes.
