My everyday boots!

What a great pair of boots! Merrell has yet to disappoint. These boots are comfortable enough for me to stand for 5 hours straight in, walk the 4 miles to and fro campus each day, and survived many rainy days without getting my feet even slightly wet. They look classy and high quality as well. The first few days they were painful on the back of my ankle, but now that I've broken them in, there is no pain. I wear a 7.5 in most shoes but went with an 8 for these; I'm happy with the fit. I've got pretty athletic calves, with my circumference equaling the circumference of the boot, so I was a bit anxious, but they fit perfectly and stretched a tiny bit so I can fit wool socks and skinny jeans comfortably inside on cold days.
