Merrell Makes Another Winner

Wow, SO glad I took the chance on these boots! I was concerned about some reviews that said the ankles were huge, and the heel cup rubbed, and the calf was too tight. I have skinny ankles, huge feet, and muscular calves but am a slim build. These boots fit perfectly. I'd say they run true to size (I got a 9.5, will be a little snug with thick wool socks). Great traction on the lug sole. Very comfortable. A little bit narrow in the toe. The fit on the calf for me is perfect, the ankles don't look too wide, and somehow they make my feet look a little smaller-- bonus! I haven't had the opportunity to use them yet in cold or snow but am sure I will get a ton of use out of them in the New England winters. My previous pair of insulated waterproof knee-high leather Merrell boots have 7 winters out of them and were true life savers. I'm so glad I found a replacement pair that is stylish enough to wear on a daily basis. The Bungee Cord color is a perfect olive green, such a great neutral and will go with ANYTHING, and the toe and heel of the boot have brown accents. My husband swears they don't look like winter boots and that they're cute enough to wear shopping or to dinner. Winter will be a little less dreary with these in my closet!
