Merrell Hikers

About a year ago I bought a pair of Merrell low top shoes in "dusty olive" color with the "select Grip" sole for a trip to France. Just want to say they are the best shoes I ever bought. I have slightly narrow feet and the shoes give great support with the proper length so toes do not contact the end. The color actually goes great with most anything and they do not look out of place when wearing around town or up to the top of Les Baux des Provence. After a year, they show little wear and are just as comfortable as ever.

I have worn a pair as my walking shoes (about 8 miles per day) for the past 2 years. I just purchased another pair.

Which Merrell hiking shoe is that? Name? Merrells fit my feet so well I can buy them online with no problem, so I would be interested in knowing which this is.

It's comforting to hear good things about Merrell shoes. I don't know if my shoes are the same as yours, but I have a pair of Merrell Moab Rover waterproof shoes and I plan to wear them on my 21-day Best of Europe tour in May. I've had them for about four months and find them to be very comfortable with a good sole. I had worn Dunham Windsor waterproof shoes on previous trips to Europe and liked them a lot, so I was a bit hesitant to switch over to Merrell. Sounds like I'll be in good shape with the Merrells.

The shoes did not have a style name on the label, and since I got then about a year ago I did not save box or receipt. Checking the current website, they look similar to the "Moab Adventure Lace" style, but with less aggressive outsole - more like the "Parkway Emboss Lace" - if that helps. I confess I bought them at a Merrell Outlet store, so they are probably a discontinued model. I continue to wear them for walking, prefer over the Adidas trail runners I have.

I have been wearing Merrell hiking shoes, low tops, for several years now. I have some "foot issues" and I have found the Merrells to be pretty good. I will be taking two different pairs of Merrells to Paris soon and then to Italy later. They don't solve all of my foot problems, but they seem to be the best I can find right now. I have the Moab hiking shoes and another style (the name escapes me right now.). Always on the lookout for better options, but the Merrells work now. I have long, wide, flat feet. Regardless of the shoe, I will have blisters within 1-2 days of travel. So, I also pack SmartWool socks and usually take sock liners, too, and my orthotics, of course.

I quite like Merrell shoes and have a collection to prove it. My favorite are mix master glide running/trail shoes. I wear them daily to walk the dog, which is over 4 miles a day. I have only found these at REI. We used to have an outlet very close to my home, but it is now closed.
