I bought these to replace a pair of Keens of similar design which are no longer made. I needed a fairly sturdy slip-on which would be up to the rigors of dog-walking, yard work and other chores in all four seasons. The Olmecs look promising so far. Comfortable, secure on the foot, sturdy outsole with aggressive, high-traction lugs. I'd advise giving them a good waterproofing with Nikwax or similar, even though this will darken the nubuck and sort of eliminate the grain.

While the service that I have received from Zappos was faultless, I have been disappointed with the quality of construction of this shoe. The insole at the Achilles notch wore out within a couple of months revealing a piece of plastic that rubs against the back of my foot and spoils any socks that I wear. I did not expect this to happen so soon, and with such gentle use, especially from a Merrell product. Customers would be advised to stay away.

With a long, storied history of numerous pairs of Jungle Moc, I'm a ginormous fan of this shoe style. And, I'd love to give my new Olmecs 5-stars in every category - They met all my criteria for what I was wanting in the shoe: Easy on, easy off. Perfect for airline travel or to take the garbage out. Uber comfortable - like slippers with knobby soles. Simple, yet durable construction. (I have an abused pair of 3 year old Jungle Mocs that are slick from wear and the uppers are still intact - They've been retired to the garage-shelf-of-fame, to be brought out for special occasions, like painting.) To that end, Olmecs are boffo. However, these pair could have used a touch more patience in manufacturing. One of the soles is out of alignment compared to the other. The toe tip on one points forward. The other shoe's tip is higher and points to the left. Also, one has a slight buckle/wrinkle in the leather at the forward, inside seam. At a brick and mortar store, they would probably pass most people's scrutiny, but there's still a chance one might find, or should, find them in a second's bin. I suppose such is the danger of buying online with a tight deadline. Even so, I'll admit, these blemishes aren't enough to convince me to return them. I don't have the time, and I'm going to abuse them anyway. I fully expect to perform fine and in another week they'll be scruffed, dirty, and broken-in...as an outdoor shoe should be.

I'd also recommend: Clarks, Timberland, Rockport

This was my 2nd pair of Marrell's. While I like the quality and the comfort I was a little disappointed to see they changes the shoe insert. They are still great quality and I'm not giving a bad review, I think it lost a little quality. That said, this Olmec shoe is great and I still give it a 5 star rating. I have worn this pair for just over one full year to date and after giving them a good shine, they look and feel great! Still supportive still comfortable and no wear on the sole at all. Little wear on the uppers after 13 months isn't bad in fact it's great. Good job Merrells. Use me for a commercial any time you want!

Excellent outdoors moc. Excellent sole, more durable than the Jungle Moc. Fits a little more snug than the Jungle Moc (which I still love). For running around town or around the home, the Jungle Moc is perfect. But if you still want the Moc comfort and want something that can go off trail, the Olmec is for you. Actually, get both the Jungle Moc and the Olmec. Both are winners.
