    I've been a Merrell fan for years and bought a bunch of their shoes. The last good hiking boots I bought from them were Pathfinder 2's which are no longer made. My Pathfinders were the most comfortable boots I've ever worn. Snug, amazingly good padding and extremely well made, which is why they lasted so long. I was quite disappointed to find that my new Phaserbound boots miss the mark by a lot. I feel like Merrell's construction quality has fallen over the years, as the difference between my old a new boots is quite striking. Less stitching and much more glue. The upper and side padding is not very springy or soft, and the sole padding is practically non-existent. The boot description from Merrell mentions sore feet, which I do get, and "padding in all the right places" but I can't find it. I needed after market insoles because straight out of the box every hard foot step goes right into your leg bones. There's also a noticable problem with asymmetry of the boots, with each boot rubbing my feet in different spots. The lace strapping on one boot just does not want to open, and I have to individually loosen the laces on that boot to get into and out of it. The tongue webbing on these boots is a problem where it bunches up and pokes/rubs the front of my ankles, and no matter how I move it it still works its way back there (The pathfinders tongue webbing was made of higher quality, softer material with better stitching and never had this problem). I've been wearing them around as much as possible for about 4 days now to try to break them in, but they're very stiff, and I feel like they're going to take a long time to loosen up. Overall I guess I can say they do feel tough ...you could kick a rock with the chunky rubber toe guard and not really feel it and the high lacing feels very secure, but when it comes to comfort and build quality I'm disappointed that things are not what they were.
