I wore the OVerlook 6 Ice+ boots for a collection of hikes over assorted terrain. The primary hike was alongside the Atlantic coast and over many ice lined and slippery rocks. Being the swish individual I’m, I figured a great take a look at could be to slip immediately into the ocean. To my nice shock, the water stage didn’t go above the boots and the inside stayed fully dry!

The opposite hikes have been extra inland, via thick forest and deep snow. As a mid-height boot, they lend effectively to equipment. I’ve used them with gaiters, crampons, and snowshoes with nice outcomes.


The Merrell Overlook boots characteristic the Vibram Arctic Grip™ which has confirmed helpful in icy situations. As a mid-hike take a look at, I switched boots to my summer season hikers (additionally with Vibram grip) and there was a noticeable distinction in traction. The boots handle to have a light-weight design, but nonetheless really feel rugged and true to measurement.

One other stand out characteristic is the air cushion constructed into the heal. The extent of consolation and shock absorption decreased the perceived influence vastly, proving to be an amazing knee saver.

Regarding the fashion, I really feel that they switch effectively from the icy path to metropolis sidewalks. This isn’t at all times the case with climbing boots, however the Merrell’s match equally effectively with common denims or snow pants.

General Opinion

I’m fairly impressed with the construct high quality, consolation, and sturdiness. They’ve confirmed themselves in freezing, moist, and slippery situations and I might advocate these to anybody planning winter actions. The one draw back I seen could be the non-public desire of a better minimize with extra pace hooks.
