Merrell Capra Bolt Hiking Boots Review: Lightweight and Comfortable


Merrell Capra Bolt Hiking Boots Review

Price and Where to Buy the Merrell Capra Bolt Hiking Boots: $140 for women’s and men’s styles on

Pros: Unlike the vast majority of hiking boots, these are so comfortable from the get-go that they require very little breaking in. They feel light but have enough structure and tread to keep feet totally protected on uneven surfaces. And while they won’t pack down small, because they weigh less than most hiking boots, they won’t weigh down a suitcase. They’re also vegan-friendly but still waterproof.

Cons: These boots seem inspired by the running shoe school of design, with bright colors patterns. So if you’re pining for for a subdued earth-tone hiking boot, you’ll need to look elsewhere.

How Merrell Capra Bolt Hiking Boots Rate:

  • Usefulness: 9/10. These boots offer great support and serious tread. And they’re light enough to be a good travel companion.
  • Value: 10/10. At $140, these boots are on the low end of the price spectrum for hiking boots, but still deliver great performance.
  • Durability: 9/10. Well-made and sturdy, these boots handled rain, mud, and rough terrain like a champ.

Final Verdict: This is footwear that manages to blend the can-do attitude of a hiking boot with the comfort of a running shoe.
