Just because most of your socializing is done on the trail and around the campfire, that doesn't mean you don't get to have a nice pair of leather shoes. Grab the Merrell Annex Recruit Hiking Shoe and class up the campground. With an upper designed from a mix of leather and textile, these shoes have the durability you need for long weekends of hiking. A breathable mesh lining ensures that heat doesn't get trapped as you start to work up a sweat on hot days under the sun, while a brushed rubber heel and toe give you added protection against any unexpected bumps on the trail. Merrell ensured that you'd have a comfortable ride as you trek, with a cushioned midsole giving you a smooth stride and Merrell Air Cushion technology absorbing shock in the heel and maintaining proper alignment. On the outsole you've got the trusted grip of Vibram rubber helping you scramble up steep slopes and slick terrain.

- Q & A
Hurt my heals after long duration
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
- Fit: True to size
- Size Bought: 8.5
Needed a couple pairs of shoes, these ones are a little on the bulky side and they’re not the most comfortable to me. Liking the Merrell brand, I also bought the Merrell Burnt Rock Travel Suede Shoes, a more flat less bulky shoe. If I was going to only keep one pair it would be the Burnt Rock ones. Im picky with shoes, usually with the width of the toe box.....these have plenty of room in that area, theres just something about them that hurts my heals. They do have great tread though, just not for me.
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: True to size

- Merrell Sizing Notes:
- Merrell boots are designed to fit like your street shoes.
When ordering Merrell boots, shoes, or sandals, you should reference your normal shoe size.
- What to Expect:
- A snug fit in the heel: In a stride, your foot bends at the ball, and the heel tries to pull away from the boot.
Because of Merrell's precise fit, the upper follows the heel. This prevents the slipping and sliding that eventually causes blisters.
Snug over the instep: Besides preventing the toes from sliding forward when you go down hill, a precise instep fit gives you internal control.
When you're standing on sloping rocks, the boot sole doesn't sideslip underneath you.
Toe Room: Merrell gives plenty of room to the toes. This room, combined with a sturdy toe box, protects the toes from getting bashed by rocks.
- Choosing Socks:
- For Hiking Boots choose heavyweight, thick, dense socks, with or without a liner sock.
For Multi-Sport choose light-or medium-weight dense socks.
- Before You Take Your Merrells to the Trail:
- 1) Try your new boots on over the correct sock combination without lacing.
Stand and push your toes forward so they touch the front of the boot.
You should be able to slip one finger into the space behind your heel.
If there isn't enough room, the boot is probably too small and you should try the next half-size larger.
For boots to be used while carrying a moderate-to-heavy pack, a full finger space is recommended.
- 2) Tap your heel back in the heel cup and lace the boot.
The boot should feel snug across the ball, around the instep, and in the heel.
The arch should be comfortably supported and the toes should be free to wiggle and curl.
- 3) To check the fit in the heel, walk up an incline. The heel should lift a maximum of 1/2 inch (1.75cm).
- 4) The toes should not jam into the front of the boot.
Checkthis by walking down an incline or tap your toe lightly into the floor or against the wall. If the boot fits correctly, the toes should gently touch the end of the boot.
