Bought these two years ago for ~$110. They are traditional leather boots with soles that are glued to the leather of the shoe. Non gortex, non vibram shoes.

They are comfortable. Very thick padding around the ankles. They offer good ankle support. I have had no problems with these boots. I've hiked/backpacked in the Grand Canyon. Through Zion canyon (including the Narrows). I have snowshoed with them in the Sierra's. Surprisingly the glue holding the soles to the leather has held up (especially through the Narrows, 10-12 miles of walking through silty river/creek). They are waterproof up to the top of the boot.

Can't really beat these for the money.

Some cons are :

Somewhat heavy. Especially if filled with water ;). Not breathable, they are a little hot during summer hikes. I have to re-tie them at least once after putting them on. Not a fan of the lacing system Merrell uses in these (locking eyelet bothers me).

I believe these boots are called the Explorer now.
