Buying tips
Try on both shoes, standing up, with the socks worn for hiking. Try on several models or sizes, if necessary. Check two comfort points: the base of the heel and the front part of the foot going down. Avoid all pressure points when trying them on. Don't hesitate to walk around the store. Gradually start using your boots during your first few hiking trips to break them in.

Best for hot weather trekking
Used for More than 1 year
This shoe is perfect for hot weather trekking. I have been using it for more than 1 year still in perfect shape. It keeps the foot cool. I would not recommend it for daily use as its sole is little hard.

Hot shoes!
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
I bought these shoes as I used similar merel shoes for a couple of years now, but these looked more durable on the outside.
After using them a couple of times I realised these are way hotter, even when its 20degC and sunny. I expected them to be very airy, because of the mesh construction, but it seems that all the plastic used just does not dissipate heat well...
I like how they look like though and they do fit my foot quite well.
Another problem is the tongue gets easily crinkled, so I need to take care when I put them on so they do not hurt.
I would recommend buying the Merrell Maipo over these shoes for comfort, but the Quechua might be more durable as they don't have as many laces on the outside of the shoe, which can get torn.
Excellent shoes
