SPECIFICATIONS of the Merrell Men's Wilderness Boots
After breaking these in (which takes a while) they remain very strong and sturdy yet comfortable. Even tho they took some time to break in, I did not get any blisters because the interior is so soft and supple. Whether you're wearing a 10 or 60lb pack, these classic boots will protect your feet from strain. Highly recommended.
"The last boot you will ever buy, until you decide to buy another one."
The Merrell Wilderness is one of my all time favorite products. A piece of great all season footwear that with proper care will last you a lifetime. Once broken in, it is the most comfortable thing that I own. Before that, well, not so much. I use this for hiking, snowshoeing, everyday use, surfing, cliff diving, and hunting snipe. Vicious creatures, snipe. Take down a fully grown chupacabra, let me tell you. But they are not tougher than this boot. Go ahead and buy them. If you have gotten this far, you know you want to. Double dog dare you.
