Winter Doesn't Stand A Chance.
It's been a record-breaking winter and your old snow boots just aren't going to cut it for a week up at the cabin. So, it's a good thing you've got the Merrell Women's Aurora Tall Ice Plus Waterproof Winter Boot. Built with a tall, durable leather upper and backed by a waterproof construction, these boots keep your feet dry as you're digging out the front porch. And when it's time to snowshoe along wooded trails, the lightweight M Select Warm insulation traps heat to protect your toes from winter's chill. Merrell finished this boot off with a Vibram Arctic Grip outsole to provide unrelenting traction in cold, icy conditions.

- Q & A
Dont depend on the artic grip too much
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
2nd pair of merrells like this. Loved the old pair, laces stayed tied and you could jump in quick and zip up. New version laces wont stay around brads no matter how you try tying and tightening them, so you have to relace everytime you put on. Artic grip is nice but just when you think you are ok in icy roads, you end up on your butt. Comfortable and warm. But disappointed in ther wearability and quick on and off. Dont think their Artic grip is as good as their video of people dancing and running on ice shows...... p.s. zipper stops short down around the ankle. Harder to put on than old pair.
Wore around the house for two days
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I loved the boots. Tried two pairs of them but the lower zipper part would hit on my bone causing it to hurt in short order. Thought something was wrong so exchanged and still hurt. If they changed this part, I would order again as I loved the ice grip part and the look of them.
taking time to break in
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
definitely warm, but some heel rubbing and difficulty getting them broken in
good zipper bad zipper
I like these on a lot of levels including the ease of getting them on and off, however the interior facing part of the zipper hit right on my ankle bone. After wearing them around the house for an hour it was pretty clear these weren't for me. Would have kept them otherwise. Also wished they can with an approx temperature rating.

- 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.
