Product Reviews
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not as depicted in photos The shoe is comfortable, fits as expected...BUT the color does not look as pictured in the advertisement... I bought it thinking it was a soft brown/green & it showed up a old elephant hide grey. Additionally, the sole in the photos appears to be a built up sole with some hard texture & decent traction/lugs. What showed up is a standard soft rubber one piece molded sole with average traction. AGAIN, the shoe is comfortable, just not what I expected based on the photos in the advertisement. Would have bought a different Merrell boot....

Rated 5 out of 5 by from From City To Trail With The Same Shoe Great looking shoe with matching performance. I like to travel light, like a carry-on size backpack and that's it. I wore these shoes as my only footwear on a trip to Seattle. These shoes went from Pike's Place Market to Hurricane Ridge Trail in Olympic National Park and never missed a beat. Very comfortable shoes. I don't have narrow feet and there is plenty of room in the standard size 'toe box'. No break in required for me. Would definitely purchase again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Manufacture defect After receiving the destroyed box and looking under the inserts in the heel where the bottom of shoe is sewn to the back of the shoe has a rip in it, its not from shipping. The colors online are also completely different, instead of a lite brown color they are very dark brown.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome shoe Great looking shoe and comfortable right out of the box. I might say the colors are vastly different than the picture I mean huge!! Great shoe for casual or play

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good looking shoe, not overly functional I was looking for a hiking shoe that was 70% shoe and 30% hiker. The kind that could be worn anywhere, even at work in some settings where an athletic sneaker would be inappropriate, and look presentable. This shoe is about 50% shoe and 50% hiker. If Merrell would cut back on the molding all around the shoe: the tugboat look in the front, the excess molding along the sides, and offer it in more everyday appealing colors that would be fine. I think Merrell is overthinking the name of the brand, "Forestbound". So the colors are dark and rusty looking. Come on! How about a nice light grey and reduced molding? Otherwise, I like the shoe. If they would just tweak it a little bit and stop with the overdone "foresty" look. I also like the functionality of the increased arch support/shank. Not just too much functionality. One problem. The colors shown online are nowhere close to the color of the actual item. Their "Merrell gray" is so dark it looks more like an olive green. Green! We get it! The forest!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Good shoe, misleading colors Bought the "cloudy" version which looks like a medium khaki or tan on the merrell site. The shoe is actually a very, very, very, very dark brown. I thought they had sent the wrong color at first, but the trim and laces match the picture. The shoe is very comfortable, I wore it quite a bit over the winter months and I believe it's going to hold up well. Just the color is way too far off for my taste. If they colors were accurate, I would rate a 5.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very nice shoe, but This is a very stylish shoe that looks good with almost any type of clothing. One thing it lacks is a more comfortable insole.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice boot - insole does not provide much support [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I am a long-time Timberland fan, but their move toward sneaker-style soles made me look elsewhere for this purchase. The Merrells fit well and seem to be high quality so far. The only problem is there is far less cushion and support in the insoles. I fixed this by buying insole inserts. They also run hotter than the Timberlands I'm used to, though I'm not sure why.
