    hi-tech, vasque, asolo,lafuma.punta ka sa ROX sa the fort. minsan sale sila.

    goretex-note that when water seeps in from above the ankle, it doesn't get out either

    don't you just love/hate how the vibram soles stink up the whole room when these merrels are new?

    check out Oakley's bro... they are very comfortable, I can't complain. They have new ones, check their website. I have the Law Enforcement issue- both the 6" and the low-cut models...The S.I. Assault models (both Black). They are very comfortable. I thought my Bates combat boots are comfortable but these are more superior.

    Did they improve the soles? A lot of my friends complained about how they're very slippery when wet.

    Daym, these things are heavy pero my feet sanay kasi sa flip flops at lightweight running shoes
    But very comfortable feels like crosstrainers , and very solid
    Kulang nalang ng bundok
    Antayin ko muna mag sale ng bundok

    Quick and Ed ,
    Got it sa merrell shop 5t bucks at 6mo to pay
    Original price was 5500p so mas mura dito kesa states
    Yes, mejo mahal nga wag nyo na paalala hehe but ok na rin 10% discount considering the col was released ngayon 2010.......w/c means absolutely nothing haha

    I got the darker coffee brown color
    I'm wearing it everyday
    It feels just like a basketball sneaker pala pati weight, very comfortable but feels as solid as a gi issue trpoical combat boot
    Pwede pang araw araw and unlike other hike boots they look darn good w/ Levi's or dockers both heehee my biggest requirement
    Gagamitin sa construction site , apparently those are the guys who buys these boots along w/ airsofters
    I'm not a fan of hiking but a friend from an NGO is inviting me on a trip to the rural areas of the non-christian south , sasama lang ako para masulit tong hayop na boots na to

    Ganda, pang himalayas na yata yan
    My original choice was the merrell sawtooth , ganyan din hicut
    But I dont think anyone can convince me to carry 60lb packs paakyat ng bundok so i realy dont need too much ankle support
    Midcut, balance nang speed at support ( at porma! :) so yan na kinuha ko

    If speed and consideration mala Bear Grylls, low cut ginagamit nya
    I think yung merrel chameleon

    thanks allegra.

    i'm a diehard merrell fan (i wear two sets of merrell boots on a regular basis. that also means absolutely nothing, but that doesn;t mean i don't still want to get another one... tama ba grammar ko? heheheh.

    basta naka zero interest. yun lang ang importante. :supergrin:
