First off, I wear nothing but Merrells (except for my running shoes), so I'm a HUGE fan, to say the least. I'm usually an 11D (10.5D in rare cases), but these boots were crushing my feet as far as width goes. Length was fine. I'm sure they'd be amazingly comfortable, but they do in fact run pretty narrow.
If there was a wide option, I'd exchange them in a heartbeat, but I guess I'll have to settle for a refund and look for other Merrell offerings.
PRO's : Warm..man they will cook your feet. Your feet will get damp from sweat. I bring extra socks and change them out.
Durable (well made) They are a heavier style boot for sure, should last you a good while.

I have worn a size 10 in other Merrell shoes before and they fit great. This time I took the advice of another reviewer and ordered a 1/2 size up. That turned out to be a mistake. Over rough and steep terrain, the oversized boots slid around on my feet and, along with the extra length, this made for a very awkward hiking experience. It was kind of weird because the top snugs up nicely around the ankle but the feet slid around inside. I actually felt unstable coming down steep slopes. I knew right away this wasn't going to work so I cleaned them up and exchanged them for 10's. Oh what a difference. With a liner sock and thick hiking socks they fit perfectly and feel really good on the trail. So my opinion is stick with the size you normally wear. As for the too narrow comments, they seem fine to me.
I love the warmth and overall design of these boots. And I think they are good looking too. I gave them four stars because they could use a little more padding around the ankle and sometimes I feel rocks protruding through the sole into the ball of my foot. I wish they were a little more isolated from the ground. Maybe these aren't a pure hiking boot but that's just fine with me. Not only do they work for hiking but are great for snowy days at work and around the house or possibly even muddy conditions. Overall I am happy and expect to enjoy these for a long time. Never owned insulated boots before so I'm really excited to get out for more cold weather activities.
By the way, for those of you interested in weight, I measured the size 10 at 23.6 oz per boot and the 10.5 was 23.9. That's not light in my opinion but probably on par for insulated boots.
Fit and finish. These appear (as expected from Merrell) very well made. They fit my somewhat narrow feet very well and comfortably although, as some others have noted, they seem to run a little small. I bought a half size larger than I usually wear and they fit perfectly. They go on and come off easily, and there was hardly any break-in period. I've worn them on all-day hikes and showshoeing trips, and no complaint with comfort.
Warmth. Seems OK for casual use. These claim 400 gm of insulation (same as the Baltoros) but head-to-head (same temperature, same trail, same socks) they are noticeably colder. They are adequate for working around the property when I can come inside from time to time, and certainly much warmer than summer boots, but definitely not best in class.
Water resistance. The claim of "waterproof" seems to be a tad exaggerated. Walking through rain, snow, or a slushy parking lot, they're fine. On a couple of occasions when I stepped through thin ice into a inch or so of water, however, I knew it immediately. The water didn't come gushing in, but I could certainly tell I didn't want to stand there very long.
Traction. These have Merrell's "Ice Grip" sole.Read more ›
