Last week I retired my Merrell's after 4 years. They've been to Thailand, Cambodia, Malaysia, Singapore, the US and Indonesia. They've seen the Killing Fields outside Phnom Penh and the cow pastures of Bowling Green, FL. They've been deep in the rainforest and 10-story Asian malls. They've been trampled by a cow, climbed inside the caves of a smiling mountain, given rides to numerous leeches, crawled under orange trees and gotten stuck in the mud of a very mossy forest. They've gone camping next to waterfalls and stayed in a Balinese resort.
Don't you worry, Merrell - I will get more of you.
Here's a few pictures (you'd be amazed at how often your shoes aren't in frame, but here are a few I found):
One of the ridiculous number of leeches I've gotten while hiking in my Merrell's. Lest you think it's the shoes fault, Sharon has a pair too and has never gotten a leech (much to her dismay surprisingly).
