Reviews - Merrell Shoes Men's Proterra Sport Hiking Shoes
I like these shoes, but their fitment is very strange. The opening for your foot is much larger than any other shoe I own, and as a result, I have to have them tied so tight that my feet hurt in order to keep my heel from slipping out the back. A combination of the slippery fabric along the heel and this large opening make for a somewhat uncomfortable fit, especially for trail running and hiking, which I bought them for. I'm hoping they'll fit better as they break in, but for now I'm a bit disappointed with them. Also, the fabric on the inside is basically taped together at the seams and after several days is already separating. I do like the minimal sole and concept of the shoe, but the fitment and build quality seem to outweigh the pluses.
