Adventure waits for no man.
The window of seeing the changing fall leaves in their full splendor can be short, so don the Merrell Men's Waitsfield Sugarbush Waterproof Boot and get out into the mountains before the leaves are gone. Made with a sturdy full-grain leather upper, waterproof membrane, and stout Vibram sole, the Waitsfield transitions effortlessly between leisurely fall hikes through deciduous forests and mellow afternoons in town spent sipping coffee and poring over your favorite fall read. Merrell named the Waitsfield after the valley in Vermont where the company began back in 1981, so, as a result, the boot features a classic look and feel that's reminiscent of hiking boots from the era.

Great boot, well made, and light weight. Yet, it is big, I am a professionally measured size 11. Get at least a half size smaller than normal.
Boots run a full size large
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
- Fit: Runs large
- Size Bought: 10 1/2
- Height: 6'0"
- Weight: 165lbs
I ordered a 10 1/2 which is my normal size. The boots are at least 1 full size larger than they should be. My son who normally wears an 11 1/2 size boot now is wearing these boots.
Order a full size down if you want a decent fit. The review below is incorrect stating these boots fit like other Merrell boots. I own many Merrell's in 10 1/2 and they all fit perfectly.
This boot runs a full size large.
The boots are super high quality and the leather is excellent. A little stiff and will require a break in period.
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Fit: True to size
I've used Merrell boots for a while now, and this new heritage collection is by far some of the best product I have from them. It pays tribute to their roots in Waitsfield VT, perfect for fall and the changing weather. So far it has been great, I've had it a few weeks and it's been through varying conditions from hot/cold to sun/rain.
It fits true to size, I would recommend ordering your normal Merrell size. If this is your first pair of Merrell's I have found they run pretty true to any run/performance shoe (same size as nike, adidas etc..)
The most notable aspect of the shoe is the look. I have received multiple compliments on the boot, and each person has been surprised to find out they are from Merrell. It dresses up or down for any occasion and is a great add to any lifestyle boot collection.
