Phaserbound 2 Tall Waterproof Backpacking Boot

The durable leather Phaserbound 2 Tall Waterproof Backpacking Boot from Merrell is designed to protect and support your feet when you're on long hikes with a heavy pack. Its full grain leather and mesh uppers feature a protective rubber toe cap to guard your feet against sticks and rocks on the trail while an M Select FRESH treatment keeps your feet fresh on your long treks. Additionally, a bellows tongue helps to keep debris out and the mesh lining ensures breathability. For stability, the Phaserbound 2 features an external heel counter, heel stability arm, and Merrell Air Cushion Viz in the heel. This Air Cushion technology absorbs shock, cradles your heel, and enhances stability when you're carrying a heavy load.

These boots fit well, have great tread, ankle support, and the waterproofing is great. I did lots of hikes in these boots and they've always done me well. My favorite part is the non slip bottom - I was saving my friends from slipping on rock face!

Returned But Never Tested on a Hike

Familiarity:
I returned this product before using it
Fit:
True to size

They fit true to size but the appearance was ugh to me. Kind of a plasticky looking material rather than something more natural. They're also grey and not brown. Might be great for hiking but I wouldn't know. Returned right away.
