Merrell Polarand Rove Waterproof Boot - Men's

Hold your ground.

Conquer the cold downtown and hiking trails with the Merrell Men's Polarand Rove Waterproof Boots. To prevent slipping on icy and rocky terrain, the rubber sole and toe provide grip, while still remaining lightweight from the air-cushion heel and EVA midsole. The waterproof leather upper and matching lace closure create a rugged mountaineer look that easily treks through the snow to reach the bar with your friends. And since winter brings slush, powder, ice, and other freezing elements, the Polarand Boots have M-Select DRY membrane waterproofing with cozy Thinsulate insulation and an Active Heat insole, which create warmth where you need it most.

I got the duck

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

The right shoe felt great, but there was something off with the left one. The leather in the arch was ripply or felt bunched up and it made a squeaky noise when walking on hard surfaces. Could have dealt with the squeaking since I got them at a great price and was going to use for hiking in the snow and a little snowshoeing, but there was just something off about the feel. Would have exchanged for another pair but they were on clearance and out of my size. Backcountry did a great job with the return though.

These are the perfect winter boots. Nephew is using them at his Moving side job and he has no issues with these shoes, the stability and fit on these is perfect and keeps his feet warm. would recommend!

Great Winter Boots

These boots are great. They fit true to size, are really warm and have fantastic grip. I don't hear any squeaky type noises like the other reviewer hears. Overall I give these boots a nine out of ten.

First off Back Country rocks! Gear heads - awesome. Shipping speed... blazing fast. Return policy... fantastic.

The actual review:
I bought these to replace my Merrell's that lasted 15 years! Loved how they felt. Fit true to size. When I stood up, there was this weird squeak/quack sound. At first I thought it was just the new rubber on my hardwood floor. Sadly this sound followed me around my house and in to the great outdoors. I couldn't take it so I returned the boots... If Merrell figures this out, I'll definitely be back
