Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size
This is the start of the second Summer with these boots, and the seal between the sole and the uppers are separating on both. They now act as a pump to suck in water any deeper than 1 1/2" . They are my fourth pair of Merrell boots, and lasted the least amount of time... normally I was getting good wear from other Merrell models. I can't say I was hard on them as they were used when I was trail hiking with a light pack.
I can agree they were quite comfortable when brand new, but feel flat now. The traction is good, and very little wear on the bottom of the sole.
They are now all sealed up with ShoeGoo, and I will be replacing them asap.
