Thanks! I am going in a couple of weeks. I am pretty new to the hiking scene so not sure if Merrells will work. In any case, these ones seem a good price point. I am only going to do the end of the Camino Frances (5-6 days).
When are you going I'll join you :) Depends on the weather. (Isle of Jura was my last trip, wouldn't have been any good there and it was dry and sunny). Personally I'd prefer some ankle support, something like the Lowa Renegade GTX, they do a shoe too I think of the Lowa. Comfortable boot, light, a bit too much stitching, but if Merrell fit you, Lowa should (as I wear both). Not in the same price range though. I did the GR20 on Corsica in Lowa Renegade GTX, no blisters, month: July.
Are these shoes good enough for summer hiking on the Camino Frances?
Funnily, the goretex version doesn't have great reviews on both the Merrell website and gooutdoors. On the other hand, this normal FST version seems to have stellar reviews.
Just noticed that Amazon have the goretex version for 59.99 at the moment if that’s any use to anyone.
