Why We Like The Merrell Nova 3 Hiking Shoe

The Nova 3— Merrell's best-selling trail running shoe—stands out for its trail-to-town versatility. With its lightweight construction, moderate cushioning, and everyday traction, we can wear the Nova as a trail running shoe or as a light hiking shoe or as a casual, outdoor lifestyle shoe. Updated for 2023, the 3rd edition includes more durable uppers to protect the tops of our feet, a new outsole design with moderate 4mm lugs, and softer midsoles with FloatPro Foam pods under the heel and forefoot for some added cushioning.

Very happy with these shoes

I have enjoyed these shoes quite a bit. Lightweight but sturdy, with plenty of room in the foot box. I’ll be training for a fall elk hunt with these shoes.

Nova 3 - very nice

I bought these to wear doing maintenance work for our local school. We do a lot of everything from mowing lawns, changing lights and a/c filters, projects and whatever needs to be done. I purchased a goretex pair because I have to walk in wet grass often. So far my feet have been dry and the shoes are possibly the most comfortable I have ever owned; I find myself wearing them most of the time. I accidentally at first ordered a no-goretex pair, but decided to keep them to wear out to town or church because I liked them so well. I hope you do not discontinue these, they are really nice.

Great lightweight dry weather hikers

Lightweight yet sturdy and supportive hikers. Very cushioning and comfortable footbed and sole. Breathable fabric that doesn't allow to much dust intrusion. I think these are my favorite Merrells.

Great All-Around Shoes

My favorite all around shoe so far. Great for running, hiking, and general wear. I'm on my third pair.

Very stylish looking, comfortable shoe.

I purchased these a few weeks ago, overall I’m pleased with the fit and comfort. The only issue I’m having is the heels slip quite a bit when walking, feels like my foot wants to lift out . Don’t think I would buy this style shoe again
