I have to wear custom orthotics, I can only wear flat heels, and I'm a size 5. So let's just say that my shoe options are somewhat limited. Since I can no longer wear my beloved flip flops, I was looking for a light weight shoe that I can run around town in during warmer weather that is NOT a sneaker. I decided some casual maryjanes were the way to go. After trying several pairs I found that thanks to my oh so hip orthotics my foot slipped right out of most of them, despite the maryjane strap that I was hoping would hold my foot in. What I really wanted were the Ecco Biom Lite MJs, but a euro size 36 is NOT a size 5, I don't care how many shoe sales guys try to convince me otherwise. I finally stumbled on these mjs from Merrell. Perhaps due to the diagonal strap of these puppies, they actually manage to stay on my feet really well, although there is some minor slipping in the heel. They are also pretty comfortable. The sole is fantastic and seems like it will have a good amount of grip once rainy weather sets in. I can definitely manage to get away with wearing these to work as well, as they are a little less casual than other options. The leather is quite thick though so these are warmer than I was hoping for a summer shoe. Will definitely transition through early fall at least. Now for the negatives, which can best be summed up by a question a friend asked me the other day: "Cute shoes, are they Keens?" Sorry Keen aficionados, but I am not a fan. Like Keens, these mjs are wide. I don't rock narrow width but I have a slender foot. On me, these fit like I imagine a wide width might. They are especially wide in the toe box, like Keens, so they have that "I've sacrificed fashion for comfort" look that I struggle to avoid. Overall, they were keepers. But I'm still searching for the elusive comfort shoe that does not look like a comfort shoe. Some of us with foot issues are not yet in our 80's and need shoes that are appropriate for the office and not just foraging in the forest for mushrooms. Also, Merrell, please stop using pigskin liners in your shoes! Cow leather is bad enough. Thankfully this pair doesn't, but many others do.

Oh no! I am a 20 year fan of Merrell shoes, starting with a pair of hiking boots long long ago. Then when they branched into daily wear shoes some years back, I slipped right into them and continued to enjoy the great fit (for my feet) and wonderful comfort no matter how many miles I logged on my job. I have worn (out) at least 9-10 pairs of Mary Jane types. They are comfortable right out of the box. They lasted through two years of almost daily wear. I diverted to Keens or Olukai or whatever, now and then but always came back to Merrell. Sadly, I guess the love affair is over. This pair of shoes, albeit kind of pretty, is really painful! The leather is really stiff and I had multiple rub spots within five minutes. There is a funny upward tilt to the forefoot which shortens the length and makes my toes hit the end in what has always been my perfect size 6½. I took them off after two minutes as I did not want to get holes in my footskin, and they were just painful. I have no interest in trying a larger size due to the stiffness of the leather...

I normally am wearing a Keen shoe for support but needed/wanted something with more style. Zappos suggested this shoe, after reading reviews, I thought there was a chance I could be comfortable in it. Obviously it was cute and about the same the price I would spend on a Keen. I first tried the dark brown but it is so dark that it's nearly black. I already have a black Keen Mary Jane, so I returned it for a light brown. Love! Wore it all day with no hint of discomfort. It seems to have stretched out a bit so I tightened the strap. Which is a crazy thing to do since I have a high instep. But the way the strap is laid diagonally, makes it work for me. Very satisfied with the shoe and also Zappos website for suggesting it. I much prefer to buy based on reviews so thanks every one!

I'd also recommend: Keen

I have very old Clarks Privo shoes, no longer available. Seeking a replacement. These Merrells are beautiful but will not accommodate my bunions and hammer toes. Need a comfy shoe with a large toe space, any suggestions?

These became my "winter shoes" as soon as I put them on. They are comfortable and stylish. The only change I made was taking the removable insoles out and substituting some athletic ones with better arch and heel support. The diagonal strap does not irritate my foot like some with a straight strap across the instep do. I just like these shoes.

Love this shoe. Looks appropriate with a skirt at work, and I could walk anywhere. I have wide feet and the medium fit well (felt like a wide). Shoe stays put when walking. Nice padding at back so no rubs.
