I bought these shoes mainly for my yard and light trails. They were purchased in August or September 2017. I honestly didn't even really use them for anything more than urban traveling until April 2018. Super comfy after a short break in and really loved the look. The first time I wore them in the rain walking my puppy with my umbrella, my right foot at the big toe area got wet. Needless to say I was not impressed. Now the shoes are separating from the sole area. I have owned sandals and flip flops from KEEN but these were my first hikers. Probably will return to Merrell since my last pair of those lasted 4+ years and were only replaced because my walking had worn the sole down. The Merrells are still waterproof and not falling apart. When I spend 100+ I expect the shoes to last for more than year but especially longer than 6 mos of actual use.
