    I’m reviewing these mostly because my son has owned three separate pairs over the past four or five years. These are my kid’s absolute favorite shoes. While his recently replaced 1-year-old Merrell Trail Chasers definitely show wear, they have not failed in the way so many reviewers have experienced. I’m uploading photos of our 2nd pair, replaced one year and 12 days after purchase and worn almost every day during the school year (excluding rain boot days and sandal weather days.) Merrell quality control must be spotty, or my son is surprisingly easy on shoes compared to other kids. We send him to a school that prioritizes play outside every day (in New England), so his shoes definitely get a healthy share of wet weather, mud, and running around on grass, gravel, and brick pavers plus concrete and asphalt around our home. I can say that my kids have both sometimes worn out the velcro fastening strap on *other* pairs of shoes from other brands. I don’t think we are being particularly careful or delicate with the Trail Chaser shoes. 🙂 Ours have held up as I would expect from sturdy hiking sneakers. I bought the first pair of Merrell Trail Chaser shoes in person at a Nordstrom store after having my son’s feet measured. As he outgrew them (yet refused to wear any others), I found them on Amazon and purchased his second pair in January 2019. In January 2020, I bought his third, and current, pair. The Amazon listing has changed a little bit from: Merrell Trail Chaser Hiking Shoe (Little Kid/Big Kid), Gunsmoke/Orange, 2.5 M US Little Kid to: Merrell Kids’ Unisex M-Trail Chaser Sneaker, Gunsmoke/Orange, 4.5 M US Big Kid Aside from what is probably just a product listing change, we’ve had the same color combo of army green (Gunsmoke) and Orange for all three pairs, and neither my son nor I can find any visible difference between the old and new pairs. From the photos of less satisfied consumers, it does appear that more of them show alternate color combos. Perhaps the Gunsmoke/Orange combo is a better bet for anyone reading this with quality concerns? My child’s passionate love of these shoes is the best review I can provide. It’s not easy for me to get him to wear any other casual shoe. He likes the speed of velcro over old-fashioned tie laces. He likes that they are weather resistant so he can wear them on rainy days. My son says his feet stay dry (unless he steps in a puddle so deep that they fill up with water from the top.) For other parents whose kids love these Merrell Trail Chaser shoes, I can recommend this particular style for boots that might fit the same child: Merrell Chameleon 7 Access Mid Waterproof Boot Big Kid 5 Black I bought the boots a half size larger to allow for thick winter socks. My son has been happy with the boots, too, but we’ve only had them a few weeks now. From my perspective, if you like the looks of these shoes, it is worth trying them, but make sure you buy from a seller with a generous return period in case you get a pair like those displayed in the other reviews. I will keep buying these until my son has outgrown the largest size (or finally decides he likes something else!) Read more

    FINALLY SHOES WITH TREAD! I have been frustrated with athletic style shoes for toddlers that have zero tread. We love to hike with our 2yo and worried about the number of times his feet would slide out from under him on loose gravel trails. No more with these shoes. He calls them his “grippy shoes”. They seem to be comfortable because he chooses them for everyday wear too. They seem very well made and I have zero worries that they won’t last. I even had to put them through the wash due to an unfortunate potty training mishap and they washed well (air dry). They are a little bit hard to put on but the pull tab on the heel makes a huge difference compared to others we tried. My 2yo can take them off on his own but definitely needs help getting them on.

    These are great shoes and I expect that they will last longer than most of the other shoes I have purchased for my 3-year-old. However, I have an issue with their width. They are marked as “wide” and that is why I ordered them – my son needs wide shoes. I can’t tell if they aren’t as wide as they are supposed to be or if the tightness caused by the elastic no-tie-laces is simply making it hard to get the shoes on my kid’s feet. In other words, I *think* that the shoe is wide enough, but the laces make it difficult to get a child’s feet through the opening in the shoe and into the wide space. Read more

    Edit 11/24 they are falling apart at the top of the shoe where her foot slides in. The fabric around her ankles is wearing through and this part of the shoe looks like she’s been wearing them daily for 10 months not 1 or 2. The sole and rest of the shoe are holding up ok. They are still her favorite but I’m not sure how much longer they will last. My daughter is picky and hard on shoes. I have been buying her Walmart sneakers and replacing them every month !!! She absolutely loves these. These are durable and comfortable shoes. Merrell makes a great shoe and these did not disappoint. Read more

    I’m a bit of a crazy person when it comes to my kids shoes. Our main brands are Plae, Keen, and Merrell. I love them all for different reasons. This is my son’s first pair of Merrells, and he couldn’t be happier. You know when you slip your heel into the shoe and you hear that perfect fit noise and feel that perfect fit feel. (Think Mr.Rogers going to the shoe store). That’s how these fit my son! He is very proud of his more grown up looking sneakers, and wears them often. We will probably stick with this exact shoe for a while, or until he gets bored of the style. We tend to only have one or two pairs of shoes at a time, quality over quantity! So far quality is spot on, and I’ve already talked to my son about being gentle with the velcro, and he is. Read more

    These are really nice looking, well constructed shoes. The only problem is my son’s feet are wide. I got these a size up from his current size but found that the opening of the shoe wasn’t wide enough to get his foot into. I got one shoe on but for the life of me I couldn’t get the other on. Since I was sizing up and expecting these to last a few months I had to return them. These are probably great if your kid has normal or narrow width but really tough to get on a wide foot. Read more

    Bought these in blue/gray/green, size 10 little kid and they fit well. Lasted longer than his foot stayed that size, When my son was 3 1/2. He’s 5 now, incredibly active, and is starting to run 5k’s. These, however, are extra sturdy and supportive and excellent. We are now up to size 12 and the 3rd pair of Merrell’s Only because he keeps growing! I’m not seeing signs of daily “wear and tear” that I have seen in less durable shoes which show scuffs if you look at them too long, and wear out in the toe after a run around the yard. Excellent traction even on slippery surfaces. And they look pretty cool, too. I have read about people’s complaints about the Velcro but we have never encountered that. We will continue to buy these as my son’s feet grow… Read more
