I bought this shoe for a trip to Costa Rica so I can walk through water and hike in the same shoe. I sometimes wear a 9 and sometimes a 9.5 in Merrells - needed a 9.5 in this model so my toes would have room. With plantar fasciitis, I'm always looking for good support and this shoe has it - plus it's pretty cute, too.

I ordered normal size (9M) and they seemed a bit long so have ordered an 8.5 M to be certain I find the right fit. The shoe is really comfortable but did not run short on my wide foot. And they are light but have structure which is what I need.

I ordered 1/2 size smaller as they run a little long. So far they are comfortable, have structure, and are lightweight which is what I need for summer walking in the city!

Awesome. I have very fussy feet after two surgeries, and these fit and felt great right out of the box! I'll be wearing these forever.

These shoes were just what I needed. I went walking through out all of Israel, hiking and water rafting, walking and sightseeing through out Jordan at Wadi Rum and in Petra, in the desert and in the Dead Sea and these shoes handled it all. Would recommend them to anyone.

Like these shoes a lot. I have toe problems on one foot and need a larger toe box. Used to wear Asics to walk but can't any longer. These shoes have felt great since day one with no toe problems. Yeah! I am glad I have finally found a comfortable shoe.

Very comfortable shoes. Love the color. I wear them for my gym workouts. Good support, and sturdy. I have a narrow foot and it fit just fine. The toe area was very roomy although I don't actually need it. Have received a few compliments on them too. There is NO other company like Zappos, love their so fast delivery.

Cute and cushy! These are perfect for warm weather walking. They felt so comfortable; the fit is what I have come to expect from Merrell. I usually wear 8 1/2, but ordered up to 9 so I could wear heavier socks in the fall and not be squished in summer when your feet may be a bit bigger due to heat. Fit just right. The colors are perfect, and these make my feet look smaller. My feet are wider in front and slimmer in the heel and I find The medium always works well for me.

Instant comfort! These are great shoes I walk about 4 miles a day in them. I am not a tennis shoe person, but wear these all the time. As a dancer, I have my share of foot problems, but not with these! Worth every penny.

I'm so glad that Merrell is making these again! I had a pair years ago, but they wore out and were no longer available. These are amazing shoes, super comfortable, roomy in the toe and the ventilation feels great this summer! The teal color is very pretty and goes almost anything. I can't recommend these enough- I'm on my feet all day and these are the only shoes that don't leave me aching by the end of the day.

Great trail shoe with a stylish appearance. My wife loves them. She wears an 8 and I bought the 8-1/2 and they fit fine but I would say they truly run a 1/4 size bigger than indicated.

These shoes are awesome! So comfortable and I wore them 2 days for my Tag Sale with being on my feet all day. Highly recommend; however, I usually wear a 7 but got a 6 1/2, so order a size down.

These shoes are AMAZING! I bought them for my trip to Hawaii (like many other reviewers) and they were perfect for trekking around the island. The thick tred on the bottoms was perfect - my feet were really protected from jagged rocks and I really felt secure on slippery, wet, muddy terrain. The mesh upper allows the shoes to dry really quickly, even after fording through rivers and the ocean. We did rinse them after one particularly muddy hike, and they took a bit longer to dry after that. Like others suggested, I ordered a half size down and they were perfect. Definitely money well spent! My boyfriend also ordered the men's version and loved his as well.

I love these shoes! I actually got them for Parkour, though I'm not sure they are snug enough on me for that. I have size 10 1/2 narrow foot, and it's always a challenge to find shoes that fit. These fit me in 10 1/2 after I used the extra adjustments to fine tune the fit. They are lightweight and great looking. They are great to kick around in.

I purchased these shoes to wear on my two week vacation in Hawaii. We did moderate hiking on rocky and loose dirt terrain, and through shallow water. These shoes were great! They have fantastic traction on all types of surfaces and dried quickly after becoming wet. I wore them without socks, and they were very comfortable and did not cause any blisters. The arch support was good and they fit very well for my narrow foot. Also, they were pretty stylish. I highly recommend them for water to land walking/hiking.

These shoes are incredible! My boyfriend & I bought these shoes for an outdoor adventure vacation. We wanted one pair of shoes to do everything: hiking, rafting, mountain biking, ATV, etc. These shoes were more than we could have dreamed. They remained comfortable during the most rigorous activities. We will continue to buy these shoes every year for all of our outdoor adventures.

These shoes did not fit me well; the back of the shoe is very stiff material, which caused a blister on the back of my ankle. However, I did replace them with another pair of Merrell's, and still enjoy the brand. My new shoe is cut higher, so that it will not rub in the same place.

These Merrell shoes will be perfect for an upcoming Alaskan cruise! They're extremely comfortable, have tons of traction and are cute!! They feel and look like sneakers. My husband actually complimented me on my new workout shoes. I went up a half size as I do with all sneakers and they're perfect in length and width--i have slightly wide feet. We'll be walking through grass, mud, ice and snow in Alaska's constantly changing climate, and I know I'm ready for anything.

The shoes were very comfortable from the start. The only drawback is that I had to add extra padding, because they are so deep, they were hurting my ankles. With the extra inserts, they're great!

These water shoes have very good support and traction. They run a half size big, so I returned an 8 for a 7.5
