my advice is order a size up from your normal size, these do come up small for some reason
Bought a pair of Merrell hiking boots with gore-tex for £47 at lightning sale and they're brilliant. I'd buy these but Ive overstretched the card, and Ive got more shoes/trainers etc than Imelda Marcos it seems

That's a lot of boot for under £50!

Very good advice with regards to Merrell shoes.

Indeed, I already own these. But bought another pair because of the great price.
£92 for my size (9.5) unfortunately.
I have some Merrell boots already and love them. Recommended.
Now had 3 different pairs of Merrells from Amazon all have leaked and last pair lasted two weeks before being refunded, not sure if cheaper materials now being used or if Amazon sell inferior stock but wouldn't waste my time ordering any more pairs myself

Sorry to hear that...But were they Gore-Tex? And you have to treat your shoes from time to time to keep them water proof.
The low rise shoe version seems even cheaper, too.

My bad, was looking at the non Gore-Tex version.

Recently I had two pairs of Goretex Merrell Moabs that failed to keep my feet dry for two minutes in very tame conditions. Fortunately Amazon refunded me without an issue.
I have never had a problem with Merrell shoes as others seem to have had and they have always sized well in a 10.

Thats the ones I've got. Thought they were Gore-Tex. Through the heavy downpour of Saturday, I plodged through couple of DEEP puddles, and the Low rise DIDN'T leak.

Couldn't disagree more. Found my size exactly right.
Best to maybe try and see, rather than assume they'd be too big/too small

They do a Gore-Tex version of the low rise, just weren't the cheaper ones I was looking at!

Yes but as mentioned one pair leaked within 2 weeks from new!!!!

I am not saying Merrell are a bad brand my point is Amazon seems to sell less than high quality and this is not limited to just these shoes recently I have had to return other items due to quality issues and a great example was a pair of Aigle boots which arrived with a sticker stating 'Reject' on the outside, upon inspecting the boots they clearly had glue leakage around the toe and would no doubt have not lasted long!!! Hence my warning on Amazon sold specific boots.
I don't agree with the statement "you have to treat your shoes from time to time to keep them water proof"
If water penetrates the membrane it is because the membrane has failed, this is a statement made by retailers as a cop out for defective products
Had a pair of Merrells for a few months now , best walking boots i've ever had.

No shoes are totally waterproof I agree. And of course any product you buy can be defective But I didn't come here to debate about quality control just post bargains.
