Upon first fit around the house they felt great. Just the appropriate size. My previous Vasque pair of boots was a 10.5, which is unusual because I hover around 9.5-10 for shoes; the Vasque pair were the first to go over 10. Nevertheless, I ordered a 10 for the Merrell Moabs. I wish I would've gone to 10.5 just for a smidge more comfort, but the 10 isn't too unbearable. There is some pinch at the sides and on my right pinky toe, though all my shoes are regular width at D(M). I didn't feel the tightness when first trying them on. It wasn't until I actually wore them outside for a day that I felt it.
Of course, the shoes will stretch a bit, as all my non-dress shoes usually do, so I'm relying on that to make these shoes perfectly comfortable. I ordered from a third-party seller on Amazon, so I'd rather keep these around and have them stretch a bit than go through the hassle of returning/exchanging them.
As for the rest of the feel, they feel great. Not heavy at all, and I've worn them a little under a week thus far. Very good feel and bounce. There was a rainy day here and I did not slip or slide on any surface, either.
I have to note that I've yet to use these for actual hiking. I'm a city commuter, but half of my commute is walking, so I need a good pair of comfortable shoes for every season. I have some good sneakers for the spring and summer, but I prefer to use hiking boots for the fall and winter for the days when there's little to no snow.
There was definitely a painful break-in experience for these, particularly because they run a bit small. I should've tested a couple but at the time I couldn't afford to test two and my old ones were falling apart (literally--part of the heel had worn off completely) and I needed a new pair as soon as possible. In the future, I will go 10.5 for hiking boots; this is odd, because all of my shoes never have run over 10 (even my bulky Sorels), but Vasque and Merrell fit half a size too small.
Been wearing the Moabs for about a couple of weeks now and I'm pleased with how they perform, but it's a painful honeymoon since the fit is very small.
Great at first. They are comfortable, and were working great, then I noticed that the soles were separating from the shoe. The glue that holds the rubber to the leather had failed. I had a pair of Timberland's do this in the toe area after a year, these are separating along the arch, in under 3 months. I found this very disappointing, as they are very comfy. I have never had a pair of boots separate like this. Only one month return, so I am out of luck there. See attached picture! it is happening worse to the right boot, but is apparent on both. I will be gluing them, to try and get more life from them. I always hold off to writing a review until I use that item for some time, and this is why.
