Thank you for your feedback.
I have not worn these very much and fitted them to the guide on Merrell's website (trying on multiple pairs).
I'm sold on the Merrell Chameleon's, I've very selective when it comes to shoes I wear for support and comfort.
These shoes are the best i have ever worn very comfortable all day long I have been wearing them every day.

    First, a few things about me. I'm an avid day-hiker. This means I carry lightweight loads (three liters of water, lunch, a few extra layers, etc.). I live and hike in Colorado. I've been doing this for many years. I'm not an extreme hiker - I don't like bouldering, and I'm not crossing streams/rivers with my shoes on or anything like that. And as I age, I don't like rapid descents (bad knees). I like intermediate level hikes.

    I read a great review of these shoes in Backpacker magazine. I read online reviews at REI and Amazon. I found a pair on sale at a local retailer in Estes Park, CO for about $85, so I took the plunge and picked them up.

    Here's what is good about them:

    1) They're light. Honestly, when I hold the shoe in my hand, I'm surprised at their weight (or lack of it).

    2) They slip on and off quickly. I'm impressed with the unorthodox cord-lock instead of the traditional laces. Never once have I needed to tighten the cord lock while hiking.

    3). The style is cool, if that's what matters to a buyer. I have the gray/blue ones and like the way they look.

    The not-so-great:

    1). The heat generated inside these shoes is head-spinning. The ventilation is terrible. I noticed the heat building up inside the shoe as I was crossing the parking lot during my first hike with them, and also in repeated uses since then. It is even worse when wearing cotton socks. I only hike with SmartWool PhD Lite socks (more on that below).

    2). I don't have a long or exaggerated stride at all, nor do I drag my heels, and after three hikes averaging about 15 miles, the heel section of the outer sole is drastically worn. I don't see these lasting into next year's hiking season at this rate.

    I have owned about 4 pairs of Chameleons over the past 8 years, and every pair has been amazing. These shoes have been the most comfortable, durable and versatile shoes I have ever owned. I was really looking forward to my next pair, the Chameleon 4 Stretch, but was extremely disappointed after taking them home and walking around in them for a few days.

    Now don't get me wrong, these shoes are very comfortable. They don't need any breaking in and you feel like you are walking on a cloud, but Merrell has slipped in two crucial areas; the heel and the materials.

    I wore these shoes while finishing up my Christmas shopping at the mall and was concerned that my heel kept slipping. This has never happened with my previous Chameleon Stretches. I got the same size as last time (11) and decided maybe a half size smaller might fix the problem. Well, that was not the issue. The smaller pair just didn't fit. My other pair of Chameleon Stretches have a deeper heel with a hard plastic material which helps hold your foot in. The new version got rid of that plastic heel, lowered the height and uses a more elastic material which leads to the slippage.

    My other gripe with the material is the hoop on the back which you use to slip the shoes on. It just feels cheap and I'm sure it would rip off within a few months of regular usage. While this may seem like a small detail, it really helps having tough hoops to pull your shoes on, and it can be a pain when they come off like they did with my last pair (even with a more durable hoop).

    All in all, I really can't recommend buying this shoe, and it actually hurts me to say it. I have given Merrell a lot of money over the years in exchange for a durable quality product, and I am sad to say that the new model just feels cheaper. I will be heading to a box store to hopefully find a different model of Merrells that actually fit, but I may just decide to give my business to a different shoe company.

    I practically have nothing but Merrell shoes in my closet & this is one of the best pairs I've owned. I worked AAA roadside service I & wear these 5 days a week, 10-12 hours a day. Excellent wear, very good in weather, very light but still secure, comfortable as can be, & def. worth the money. Going to buy a few m ore pairs as soon as I've worn through these. Great shoe...period...

    I have owned Merrell Chameleon 2, 3 and a previous pair of the Chameleon 4. The most recent pair started to fall apart in less than 2 months of normal usage. The heel started to separate and the stitching has started to come undone. I am quite surprised at the poor quality of this Merrell shoe since I have worn them for many years and have loved them in the past.

    I love this pair of Merrell which is lightweight and best of all comfortable. You can walk in them all day long and your feet does not feel sore or tired at all. I would recommend this as a good pair of walking shoes!

    These are the daily commuters. I wear them six days a week and they are great so far. Up and down ladders, on concrete and rooftops all day long. I wear 11s in nike, adidas, and most other shoes/boots. These fit true to size. The sole is softer and grippier than the two Merrell Continuums that I had before. Can't wait to take them off road.

    I used to like Merrell a lot-high quality products, I've got a total of three pairs. You pay more up front but you get more at the long run. Until lately-it looks like Merrell is turning into one of the many companies that would rather make a few more dollars of profit than secure a loyal returning customer. How does that happen-easy and simple-they cut down on the fixed cost and instead of making a high quality long lasting shoe they start using cheaper(and less) materials and aim at short term profits by keeping the same high prices or even bumping them higher. I think people are gonna turn to other brands on the market that are just as compatitive with their prices and quality. I least I am. Some facts-I still have a pair of the Chameleon three-very well built inside and outside. I just bought the Chameleon 4 and to my surprise these are not really made to last-the inside lining is a JOKE, honestly, compared to the old ones and the outlining is a little thinner-"lighter is better hohoho" tells me the sales person, nope, if lighter is gonna be at the expense of how firm the shoe stays when I hike-nay, I'd choose the Cham 3 over the new cheaper(as materials, otherwise just as pricy) one, but guess what? They don't make the Cham 3 anymore. Discontinued. Why? This question only hurts. Because they have to write off big bucks supposedly going to their designers and the designers have to come up with new and newer models but the bottom line is that the new models are nowhere near as good; on the contrary-cheaper, built to last less so you can buy more pairs-ha! Go to Marshalls-I found a brand new pair of Teva Men's Raith eVent Waterproof Hiking Shoes for $25! A steal! This is gonna be my next pair of hiking shoes.Read more ›
