I was looking for a shoe with stability and protection but a lighter weight and more flexibility than most hiking shoes. This one did the trick. I have custom orthotics to insert, and there was plenty of room for them and my toes too.

When the shoes arrived, I replaced the liner with an orthotic insert, as I have high arches. Like other reviewers, I found the fit comfortable. What I found uncomfortable was when walking in these shoes, they feel like they slant quite a bit at the heal area, high on the inside edge of the shoe & low toward the outside of the shoe. After standing in them for a day, My feet are very sore. I have always worn New Balance before, and use the same brand insoles, but have never had this problem before.

I just got a pair of these. I've been wearing them for one week. It's a great shoe: sturdy, supportive, very custom-feeling fit. The wide size is, in fact, wide.

In the last 8 or 9 years I've purchased five pairs of these shoes. They are the best shoes I've come across as far as quality and durability. The first pair I purchased went for a lot cheaper. The second time I bought two pairs for just somewhat more. They haven't changed a thing with this particular shoe in nearly a decade except for the price. I think I should get another pair before they increase the price again.

Shoes arrived quickly in perfect condition. The fit was exact but I love the fact I could ship them back free if they didn't fit right. I will be purchasing more shoes from Zappos.

This is at least the 6th pair of the shoes I've bought. I love the comfort and durability of them and will buy more when these finally wear out.

I don't know if they've changed in the past few years, but I have had these since 2008 and they've been one of the two shoes I wear on a daily basis (the other being Asics Gel Enduro 4) despite about 4 years of abuse, they are still holding up extremely well. I am one of those people that tends to view shoes as slippers, even if they have laces--while the soft bit behind your Achilles tendon has long since given up the ghost on those Asics, these Merrells are still going strong. I also destroy shoe soles like crazy, and I can still see the original pattern on these shoes. I went to the store and found out just how much of the Vibram is missing, but the pattern still matches. I will say that, being Vibram, the sole is hard wearing but slippery when wet. The lugs on this shoe mitigate that some, but if you're on a stony surface it is very tough to keep your balance in the rain.

Brands I'd also recommend: merrell barefoot, saucony, asics

Best shoes ever! My first pair lasted 2 years with everyday all purpose use. They still look good so I kept them for dirty work. True to size and no break in period. I received them in a day or two with free shipping from Zappos. Very pleased!

I bought these for my brother for Christmas. He has had eleven foot surgeries and is always struggling to find comfortable shoes. I have trouble feet myself (4 surgeries) and I love Merrells for myself. I love that they are light weight. It makes a huge difference when walking. I purchased 2 different sizes for him and e kept one. He put them on and didn't take them off for the 2 weeks he was visiting me. We even traveled to Florida, going through airports, standing in line, etc. In order words, they were a hit!

Brands I'd also recommend: Mephitis, new balance, karhu

Merrells are pretty consistent. This one proved to be a good replacement for my husband. Only one complaint is that the toe box is a little tighter than his last pair and causes minor rubbing on little toes. Wearing thinner socks does help, though. Only 3 stars for comfort because of this. Going up 1/2 size might make a difference but he's already worn them outside.

Great shoe/sneaker if you walk on the outside of your shoe/sneaker this sneaker is for you! It has a built into the sole wedge to eliminate the wearing of outside sole and heel. Before getting the Moab Ventilator I had to have wedges put on sneakers and shoes or throw them out because of outside sole wear these are fantastic for keeping you foot stable, and straight while doing any activity.

These are, hands down, the most comfortable shoes I have ever worn. I just bought my second pair. If you have wide feet like me, buy a half size up and you should be fine.

I had been hearing so many great things about Merrell's and decided to get these as my first pair. They are awesome. I am very satisfied with them as an everyday shoe and a light hiking shoe.

Excellent, well built shoes. It took about a week to break them in, but am very happy with them. They are replacing my New Balance 645's which I would have bought but are no longer available.

I found these to be a great shoe for walking around all day at Walt Disney World in the heat. They are very comfortable, light and breath well, as well as supportive, with a snug heel fit. I returned the first pair in the size I normally wear because they were way too small. I ordered a second pair a full size larger and they fit perfectly. The large-diameter laces come untied once in a while, but not too often.

These are excellent shoes. This is my second pair. I had the others for a year, wore them at least four days a week and they still look new. My feet got bigger, so I needed a bigger size. They are incredibly comfortable, durable, and cool here in Texas. I am getting a pair of gore-tex mids soon for hiking vacations. Who knew your arches start to fall with age and your feet get longer.

I read many great reviews on how this shoe was so comfortable. It did not work for me. I have very sensitive heels. I can wear North Face hiking boots that I got from Zappos but they just get too hot in the summer.

I usually wear a 9; this shoe required size 10 for me. Very comfortable and looks great on the trail with shorts, at the mall with jeans, or scrimmaging in the yard with the kids.
