Merrell Chameleon Gore Tex


Description
Designed for ever-changing terrain, these Gore-Tex hiking boots are built on an athletic last for on-demand performance.. Full-grain leather uppers with waterproof, breathable Gore-Tex® membranes and bellows tongues keep feet dry, even in a deluge. Removable EVA footbeds, compression-molded EVA footframes and Air Cushion® midsoles absorb shock and stabilize feet. Backpacking-grade nylon insoles provide the optimal blend of stiffness and flex underfoot. Heels are held securely with the injection-molded wishbone external counters. Merrell Vibram® Octogrip™ soles with multi-directional oval lugs are matched to EVA footframes that wrap high for protection.

Summary:
These are the most horrible shoes I have ever owned. These shoes made so many weekend trips pure hell. My heels got the worst blisters I have ever had with these shoes. I will never buy merrell again. I logged 500 miles with these easy and they got worse with time.

Summary:
Great shoe! After an overnighter with 30 miles logged and a 40-pound pack (was carrying much of the gear for the group), I got no blisters! Beautiful suspension also kept my feet from hurting except at the very end of the day. In addition, the stability of the shoes is a dream!

Reviewed by: Ted Cadigan ,  Backpacker , from Toronto, Canada

Summary:
I found these at a non-hiking store on sale from $280 Cdn to $59.99 Canadian (about $40 USD). They weren't selling at this particular store, and I grabbed the last pair of size 9s, just because they were so cheap. I've work them on about 55km worth of dayhiking over varied terrain during the last 3 weeks and am very impressed with them. No blisters, no hot spots, easy to walk in on the smoother bits, totally stable on the rough stuff. Buy them a half size smaller than your normal size. Only complaint is that the laces are about 10 inches too long- I cut mine off. Great boots for $60!!
