Footwear that rises to the ankle or higher; can be casual or dressy, practical or fashionable. Boots that are designed for protection from the elements may be made of a single, closely-stitched piece of leather, rubber, or other material to prevent the entry of water, mud or dirt. Other types of boots are sturdy in nature, intended for protection in wilderness or industrial settings. Fashionable boots for men and women may have all the variations seen in other shoe styles, including high heels, platforms, and lacings.

I have had these shoes for roughly 2 months and am very pleased to date. I purchased these shoes as my every day winter shoes and am looking forward to see how they handle the wet weather next winter. Size wise they compare well to other Merrill products I have purchased previously.

Merrell Moab Mid Gore-Tex XCR Great Light Hiking Boot
January 08, 2013
Reviewer: Gwen from Dayton, OH
I read the reviews for this boot before buying it and am glad I paid attention to those who suggested to order a half size larger- I did and they're so comfortable! They didn't need breaking in, although it feels a bit "flat" to walk in compared to the other hiking boot brand I'm used to. I only wish they came up on my ankle a bit higher. They're a great boot for light hikes, yet I'm not sure they'll give the ankle support needed for rugged, rocky terrain.
