Verified Buyer Reviewed by Devinjak from SLC, UT on Friday, April 7, 2017Bought these to glacier hike in Iceland. They were perfect! Warm, waterproof, good traction and no need to be broken in.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Judy Sailor from California on Thursday, March 16, 2017I purchased two pairs of these shoes in two consecutive sizes. They are very sturdy and warm. Both sizes feel OK - my test for good shoes (for bad shoes you can never find the right size)
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Ryan from Maine on Thursday, March 9, 2017They are both warm and comfy! The only drawback is that they run pretty big. I ordered a size 8 since they come in whole sizes, and I wear a 7 1/2. Even with thick socks on they feel a bit too big on my feet.
Reviewed by ForestLass from Mountains of Arizona on Wednesday, March 1, 2017I hesitated to purchase these Merrell Kiandra Snow Boots since they do not run true to size. Many reported they were 1/2 size smaller than stated, I found them to be a full size smaller. I normally wear a 7.5 hiking boot with thick ragg wool socks and purchased these in a size 8 since a 8.5 was not available. Wore them inside for several hours and found them tolerable, although the toe box is narrower and boot length is shorter than my Sorels. I was concerned that the ruff at the boot top may inhibit use of gaiters but they fit well. One poster stated that there was no padding/insulation in the foot and I found that untrue. A snow storm here initiated their use outside and I'm glad I did not return these boots. The fit is already conforming to my foot and my foot stayed warm. Haven't tried with snowshoes yet but I'm confident they will work well. They do not prevent slipping on ice but I don't expect any boot to do that without ice traction devices. In the end, I recommend. I downgraded 1-star for the sizing: 1/2 size larger will certainly work for thinner socks, a full size is optimal for thick wool socks.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Northern Ohio outdoor lover from Ohio on Monday, February 27, 2017I usually wear a regular shoe size 7.5 but ordered size 8 and the fit was good, even with thick socks. I have a pair of regular leather Merrell casual boots in a size 7.5 so I was concerned the 8 would be too big. Boots are comfortable out of the box but have not had the opportunity to test the waterproofedness or if they will be warm in single digit temps.

Not nearly as high as it looks. What appears a high heel from the outside is cosmetic -- the actual heel of your foot inside the shoe is only 1/2 inch from the ground -- your heel would be at the same height as the ball of your foot.
I love these shoes. They are so comfortable! I had ordered the 2015 version but found the heel huge and slippy -- this older version has a better-fitting heel. Best boots ever.
The heel height is 2". The bottom of heel to top of boot is 8". Very comfortable boot.
The top of the boot is 2-3 inches above the ankle bone. It's not a high boot. I wanted it a little higher than ankle height to accommodate for some snow while walking. The boot isn't flat either. It lifts me up probably 1 1/2 inches. They're comfortable in the right size.
They would be considered ankle height, but they are shin height. The heel is less than 1 inch.
According to the product specs tab:
Heel height: 1-1/4"
I just got out the measuring tape. The boots at 8 3/4" in the front and 7" in the back, The heal is 1 3/4". They are very easy to walk in.
I work at warehouse where temperature don't get any warmer than 55 degree and I wear 3 woolsock, to answer our question,
I don't think so.
You could use these for snow-shoes if you choose to.
