Lite Duty Hiking Boots
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Hiker/Hunter from Oklahoma on Thursday, August 25, 2016
I have several pairs of heavy duty, waterproof hiking boots that I use for hiking, scouting and hunting in colder weather. I purchased the Merrell Yokota's Pulse for use in warmer weather and in fairly rough terrain (setting up deer feeders, checking tree stands etc.). Ankle support is minimal, but what I would expect of a mid-high boot. I've had the boots out once in wet conditions and would say that they are more water-resistant than waterproof. As a result, I rated them a 4 star. I did subsequently find a water proofing conditioner which has helped greatly. The boots are very comfortable and broke in quickly. From what I've seen thus far, they seem to be fairly durable and, I would recommend the boots for lite-duty outings.
