I have a low arch, so I found these plenty supportive. The draw back - and reason I intend to return - is that the vamp comes up too high and digs in as I walk. If the top had more give (maybe larger) or if I had more toe cleavage (like with Born's flats) I don't think this would be problem. But, I'm unsure that going up a half size will help since they might just end up loosey goosey overall.

Close, but no. Aaarggh! Will someone please make a barefoot ballet shoe, without stiff material that jams toes, that does not have an insert that raises the heel? Merrell used to make a shoe like that. This is close, but ultimately a failure.

I love(d) Merrell, and so I gave them the benefit of the doubt and ordered these even though all the reviews said they were not good. They are just not worth the cost. There is absolutely no arch support, which is the main reason I like this brand. And there isn't very much cushion either. The toes also lift up in a way that puts pressure on the ball of the foot and looks awkward. Sadly, I'm sending them back.

I wanted to love these, but I couldn't. The biggest drawback was the lack of support. And, the right shoe was not made correctly as there was something sharp that dug into the side of my foot. I had to send them back.

I really, really wanted these to work. I have a pair of Merrell Plie flats from years back that I needed to replace. Naturally, I thought that Merrell might have an adequate replacement. I received these and tried them on - the sides where are too tight and the toe cup cuts into the top of my foot. Sadly having to return these.

I'd also recommend: clarks, born, ecco
