Born and raised in Vermont.
Named after a beautiful valley in Vermont, the Merrell Sugarbush Braden Mid Leather Waterproof Boot is a lightweight hiking boot with old-school styling. The salt resistant leather upper coupled with a D-ring lacing system creates a classic look that is at home in the city or in the mountains. In addition to the stylistic benefits this combination also offers excellent protection from moisture and debris for long days on the trail. Additionally the Sugarbush Braden has a supportive EVA midsole and outsole, as well as a removable contoured insole so that you can get customized support for your problem areas and stay on the trail longer.

I bought these boots in October for my new winter boots as my Doc Martins that I usually wear are not the best for the salt and snow in Rochester, NY. I couldn't fathom wearing these hiking in colder weather as my feet don't stay dry walking through the snow/slush from my parking lot into my building @ work. I am very disappointed with these as they were a decent amount of money and not at all worth it. I have opted to wear a pair of off brand hiking boots that I bought @ Sears 5 years ago instead of these as they keep my feet drier than these.
