In my experience, the size range printed on the box is NOT the best way to determine which is best for you. Stand on the insoles with your heels in the cups and see where the arch hits.
In my case, the size range would dictate size E, but really F is by far the best fit.
My first approach shoes and for the price I believe I chose well. Light weight feel, no break-in, cushy inside and sticky outside. Much more fun for quick-local hikes and scrambles than my hiking boots! The lacing works well and helps dial in the fit for scrambling as well as holding the heel back nicely for hiking. The sticky rand goes along the sides and up the heel (see images.)
True to street size in my experience, I have a moderately wide foot.
Still loving these boots, after many miles I replaced the laces and insoles but the outsoles are just about wasted, does anyone know where I may check into a (Vibram) re-sole?
I have the older Throttle but I compared specs and this new Trigger seems the same.
This is an AMAZING 3 season against skin or mid layer or stand-alone. It is quite often listed by retailers as underwear but it looks 100% like outerwear. Start the cold morning with hood and thumbholes, finish the afternoon with the sleeves pushed-up, it has a remarkable temperature range yet is light, allows all movement and packs super small. I got my first one really cheap (at S&C) but I loved it so much I found another and bought it at twice that price. The hood is like a balaclava and works great under-helmet or over baseball hat. The only tiny issue is a little pilling after several washes even though I didn't use fabric softener or dryer.
I like these shoes! I wore them up and down San Gorgonio as a 1 day (16 miles) last Summer with almost zero break-in and had no issues. They are a good lightweight summer hiker. They breathe very well (non-Gore-tex) I would agree the sizing is true. I would not wear these on any further distance or with more than a daypack as they are lightweight with a lot of feel so your feet bottoms would get pounded. I still use the original Merrell insoles.
These shoes also double for me as indoor workout trainers and they have massive grip on regular floor surfaces.
