These Boots are made for exploring

A waterproof hiking boot that is awesome for travel, whether you are hiking in Forest Park in Portland or taking a walking tour. They also rock when you have a day job that keeps you on your feet all day on a hard cement floor. I tested the women’s boot but I’m certain guys will dig the boot for men.

Key features: ultra light Nubuck, suede leather and mesh upper with a protective rubber toe cap, molded TPU heel plus a Vibram® TC5+ outsole for stability. The Merrell air cushion in the heel adds comfort and additional stability.

The only things I don’t do in these boots are shower and sleep. And speaking of showers, they are great for trekking around in the rain.
