Why We Like The Bravada 2 Waterproof Hiking Shoe

For those hot summer hikes under ominous skies, we lace up the Merrell Bravada 2 Waterproof Hiking Shoe for a lightweight, breathable option that also keeps our feet dry in case rain decides to interrupt the hike. The knit mesh upper keeps cool air flowing through while the waterproof membrane keeps the elements at bay.  Plus, not only does this shoe tackle trails with protective, cushioned comfort, but it also does it in eco-friendly fashion thanks to its use of recycled materials.

Bravada2 waterproof shoes

Great fit, really comfortable straight out of the box. Exactly what I needed - waterproof shoes for wet/sloppy weather.

Great fit!

These shoes were perfect fit, straight out of the box, and were perfect for hiking on vacation

Loved the look and water-proofing, but...

I loved that the shoes are water-proof. The style is good, as was the navy color combo. But no matter how I laced or tied them, my heal slipped when walking. Sadly, had to return. (The heal also felt too low compared to rest of foot.)

Beautiful colors in black with fuschia midsole

These sneakers fit well on the length and width, and I love the colors, especially the practical fuchsia midsoles (I avoid white midsoles). However, just trying them in the house on carpet and hardwood floors could not convince me to keep them. I felt pressure on the TOP of my foot each time my foot was bending to step forward. Even completely loosening the laces to the maximum did not help. I think the pressure was located where the lacing panels are sewn down where they start, not allowing any stretch as one steps forward and the foot lifts up. I chose these shoes for the soft knit texture, but it did not help because of the way the lacing sides are sewn down, and therefore keep the foot constricted. Too bad because everything else was perfect, plus they look great and stylish! Hopefully, my review will guide Merrell to revise its design.

Comfortable secure hiking shoes

Have not actually hiked in these yet, bought for a trip to south america, but they fit well and have a good support so far

Comfy, but awkward looking design

Super comfy for all day wear! I knocked off two stars for the incredibly awkward asymmetrical toe design. Every time I look down at my feet I feel like I've put the left shoe on my right foot and vice versa. They don't look much better from the side, also due to the asymmetrical toe.

Do Not Like the New Models

Unfortunately I loved my original waterproof Bravadas. The Bravada 2 does not fill or feel the same. There is less ankle support and overall does not feel as stable. I sent mine back. That's 2 strikes against any new designed Merrells. I also can't wear the waterproof Andorra's. Again not supportive enough and put my foot in a position that hurts my knees. I love my old Merrells but not the newer models

The fit is a bit narrow but that’s ok for me. I really like that these are gortex.

Disappointed-I loved the first pair I bought and wore for 2 years, replaced with the new version and they have not maintained the waterproof nature and are not as comfortable.

Big and bulky !

A little big and bulky but comfortable! I returned because they felt too big.
