Patricia D.wrote a review of Merrell Phaserbound Waterproof Backpacking Boot - Women's on August 4, 2017
Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size
These fit very nicely; they really hold onto my narrow heel while being supportive in the arch and comfortable in the toe. I wear them everyday as a gardener and would only wish they could withstand the excessive wet I put them through, but maybe only a rubber welly could do that! The glue has separated a bit where the toe meets the leather and in very heavy rain, my feet get wet and it is hard to completely dry the boots once they are soaked. I'm really very pleased with the fit and the support they offer my feet and knees as I walk a few miles each day.
