This is my third pair of Merrell MOAB Goretex. The first two were shoes and this pair the boots. I use these boots for walking my dog in hilly/rocky areas. These boots, like the shoes, have zero wear-in time. They are comfortable when you first put them on and stay that way. I have wide feet and these boots are a wide fit. They are relatively lightweight given their sturdy construction and breath well. Its winter here now so I cant comment on whether they are comfortable in hot condition. I have found they keep my feet dry when walking through wet grass and the occasional puddle. I haven't stood in running water with them. I have knee problems so purchased this brand for their quality Vibram soles. The soles provide some shock absorption but aren't overly soft. Overall these boots are a quality product, very comfortable and keep your feet dry without overheating.
