Who should buy the Merrell Erie Mid Waterproof

Best used for day hikes in rainy or wet conditions, the Erie Mid Waterproof is sure to bring your feet delight, warmth, and comfort right where you need it the most. Merrell hiking boots are known for their out-of-the-box comfort and versatility. But there is more to expect from the Erie Mid. Check these out:

Lightness with every step

While certainly not the lightest hiking boots around, this model is pretty lightweight for its type. It's normal for a mid-top hiker to put on extra weight. But the Erie Mid utilizes lightweight materials, including a sturdy foam for cushioning. Additionally, it's geared with the Merrell Air Cushion that works by absorbing four times the weight of the wearer. Translation: walk like there's a cloud under your feet.
