5 out of 5 stars Fantastic light hiker! 09/29/2013

Reviewer: ashleyg from
I'm an active, athletic early thirty-something and picked up these shoes after a great experience with my Siren Sports that have treated me well for 5 years and are still going. These light hikers are perfect for my frequent day hikes and for everyday use around town. They cradle the foot nicely without being bulky at all. Love the lightweight nature and breathability. Fantastic shoe and will absolutely recommend to friends!

3 out of 5 stars Mixed feelings... 09/06/2013
Shoe Size: Fits true to size
Shoe Width: Fits true to width
Reviewer: Nina from
Initially I absolutely without a doubt loved these shoes. The style took a little getting used to, but the comfort was fantastic. I typically use these at work (on my feet 80%+) and have also taken them to the trail for light hikes. These shoes have performed great in all aspects- keeping in mind what they are and are not capable of. My only real complaint is how quickly they wore out. Seriously, I've had these only a few months and theres holes on the inside heels and the material is nearly worn through from the outside in where the toe box flexes. This is the first time I have been remotely disappointed with Merrell shoes. I want another pair but I want them to last longer.

4 out of 5 stars Women's Proterra Vim Sport 07/30/2013
Shoe Size: Fits half size larger
Shoe Width: Fits true to width
Reviewer: mc from
Have been using barefoot shoes as my everyday shoes now for about a year and bought these to replace my last day hikers. Was hoping they would be supportive enough and give enough protection for hiking on rocky terrain while keeping the same feel I've grown used to with minimal drop shoes. A difficult balance to strike but I am very happy with these so far! Very comfortable, good contact with the terrain. Toe box is very large, might prefer it snugger but shoe fits through the rest of the foot very well. Haven't tried them yet on slippery conditions, but very happy so far, definitely won't be going back to regular hikers. Looking forward to seeing if they can be used for backpacking trips!

3 out of 5 stars Super comfy, but dewy grass soaks 'em! 07/28/2013
Shoe Size: Fits true to size
Shoe Width: Fits true to width
Reviewer: Dog Walker from
These shoe are comfortable, stable, and lightweight, I love them. They are suitable as I scramble up sandy hills and rocky terrain, very responsive to the terrain. However, I wear them to walk my dogs each morning, and even going through slightly dewey grass leaves my shoes, socks, and feet wet! I am surprised that even 20 seconds of dewey grass makes them soaked...embarrassing to say but after getting wet a few mornings, leaving them outside to dry, they completely reek! None of my other hiking shoes have this odor, even my (gasp) Nike tennis shoes don't leave my socks wet like these shoes. Would return them but will use them as walking shoes only on the pavement. Disappointed in this development, but very comfortable and super cute shoes.
