    Mainly I use hiking boots for upland bird hunting due to the fact that they are typically lighter and more comfortable. When I got them they felt just a tad big, but after I wore them in and out of puddles they just formed to my foot. Awesome light weight boot!

    One word DISAPPIONTED! I bought these based on the great reviews. They ARE comfortable, true to fit, supportive but none of that counts if the metal buckles pop right out when you're lacing them. I'm not talking about excessive pulling here, just lacing them.

        Comments about Merrell Mens Legacy GORE-TEX Hiker:

        I bought these boots 2 years ago for strenuous hiking. Northern Pennsylvania, Glacier, Wyoming Rawah Wilderness. They have proved to be comfortable and durable and it takes a flood to get water inside. The leather needs cleaning and lubrication just like any good hiking boot. 2014 they are going to be my go-to boot for the AT. I am sure I won't be disappointed.

          In the world of hiking boots, you truly get what you pay for, and these Merrell's are no exception. I bought a pair of these at my local Gander Mountain, and drove straight to Palo Duro Canyon where i hiked 8 miles worth of trails wearing these straight out of the box. My feet feel were no worse for wear. No break in period. No blisters. The boots look good and feel great once they're laced down in your ankles. Good job Merrell.

              I love everything about these boots except the price! I own a residential lawn care company with over 200 accounts and me and my guys do PLENTY of walking. These are the best boots on the market they hold out the best that I have seen. Before we had found these boots we were buying a new pair of boots every month now we are down to about 4 pair a year! Keep up the good work Merrell!

                I am going hiking in Arizona in July. Are these appropriate for the heat? If not does anyone have a recommendation. I am an avid runner but new to hiking. Thanks for the help

                  A:

                  These boots are very comfortable and lightweight (about 1.5 ls per boot) But they are not going to breath very well, so heat will be an issue.

                • A:

                  These boots have a decent amount of insulation built in, but its not excessive. Ive used these on hikes with temperatures in excess of 90 degress with no issues. Have fun with hiking!
