BethRawrote a review of Merrell Iceclaw Mid Waterproof Boot - Men's on March 26, 2015
Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size
I was looking for a good multipurpose Winter boot - something that fit and wore like a hiking boot, but was waterproof and a bit warmer. These fit the bill on all counts. I have worn these for shoveling snow (a LOT of snow - it's been a long Winter here in Boston), commuting, and a couple of 5-6 mile hikes with both snowshoes and microspikes for traction. These have kept my feet warm and dry without being excessively heavy or bulky. I do wish the ankles were a bit less padded/insulated, and that the shaft was a tiny bit shorter, but that's personal preference.
