Default Merrell work boots

Picked these up at Cabela’s on sale at a killer price. They seem light and comfy. Anybody try them? Composite toe.

I'll have to swing by Cabelas this weekend and have a look at them in person.

I used that style for hunting for years since they came out.

Not sure how they would hold up on concrete floors and that type thing.

They are light and comfortable.

I had a pair of hiking boots like this once only Salomon. They were comfortable but the Gore Tex liner failed after a year. Hopefully these are better.

Now you tell me. I just picked up a pair of new boots 2 weeks ago. I do more walking than work anymore so those look like they would fit the bill.

Sorry

I don’t know if they’re any good but they were 80 bucks off so I thought I would try them.

Are they really marketing them as work boats or hiking boots?


The Timberland Pro series are the only nylon fabric boots that have held up for me as work boots.

If your wearing a boot everyday that stays waterproof for a year that’s pretty good. I’m lucky to get 6 months
