Great little sandal, lots of cushioning and really comfortable, appropriate for sporty and/or casual wear. Great "Little White" sandal.

The Merrell Gardena thong sandal is my favorite because I can walk in these all day. I usually wear a 7 1/2, but I go up the half size and they fit perfect in a 8. They also have no break in period. I have worn the Senise style also but I find I need a little higher heel and the Gardena sole is perfect and they also have a better arch support. I just ordered 2 pair a few weeks ago in brown and white so I will be all set for spring. My first pair were in a Citron beige, but I think they discontinued that color; wish they still made that color too. Try them, you will love them! They are well worth the money.

Brands I'd also recommend: The ugg sandals and boots are another favorite of mine, very comfortable.

I have about 10 Merrell Gardena Thongs in every color they come in. I wear them all summer long. They are so comfortable and I get so many compliments on them. My co-worker tried on my pair and immediately ordered two pairs for herself. Can't recommend them enough.

I love Merrell shoes and needed a new pair of brown sandals. When I saw these, I knew they were the ones - unfortunately, no one had my size anywhere. Zappos sent me an e-mail once they had them in stock, I ordered them and a few days later they showed up. They are so comfortable and very good looking - I absolutely love them. And, they do not make that annoying flapping sound when you walk, like so many flip flops. I hope Merrell never discontinues this model.

Merrells are God's way of saying that he loves our feet. I have yet to find a pair of Merrells that were not 100 percent comfortable the minute I put them on, and this sandal was no exception. It molds to your foot, the in-between-your-toe piece is totally comfortable, and I wore them the whole day while walking on vacation the first time I put them on. I should note that I routinely order a size down. I'm normally a size 8, but I always order a size 7 in clogs and sandals. Love these sandals and Zappos!

Love these shoes! They are very light and comfortable. I ordered a 1/2 size bigger being they only come in whole sizes and they fit perfect. I have wide feet and these still fit great because of the stretch microfiber in the middle.

Saw these shoes when I visited my sister in Ohio, but the store didn't have my size. I came home and immediately ordered from Zappos. Had them in just a few days, put them on and wore them all day the first day I had them. Awesome shoes!

I love my Merrell Gardena\'s. They are so comfortable from the moment you put them on and I could wear them all day. They give good support for a sandal, are as comfortable as a cloud, well made and fit true to size. And they are super cute!! You will not be disapointed. I am a huge fan of Zappos. I get my shoes in 1 or 2 days, with the most friendly service on the phone, and they have a big variety of cute shoes in size 11 which are difficult to find. Zappos is the best!

Brands I'd also recommend: I like Born too.

This has been the hottest summer I can ever remember and I have had the best shoes ever for this summer. My Merrell Gardena Thong fit true to size and are the most comfortable sandel. I have worn them all day long and my feet have stayed cool, comfortable, and dry. I love these sandels!

Extremely comfortable first time out of the box. I wore them all through London as I was walking 5+ miles a day and loved them. they look a little more dressy than the average sandal too!

I have a problem knee and when I wear sandals my foot is constantly moving (slipping) around. These sandals are not only very comfortable but they hold your foot in place thus preventing tweaking you knees. I have them in three colors.

Merrell Gardena Thong - I wanted to love this shoe. Looks great and is fairly comfortable. However, my feet tired in these; maybe not enough cushioning for my old feet, and the right thong rubbed. At this price, these have to be a "go-to" shoe, but my feet didn't like them as well as I did. This would be a great shoe for most "normal" people, but my feet are extremely picky.

These sandals were a replacement for the Merrel Gardenias that I bought 2 years ago, and that the new puppy chewed up. Before I found these, I tried the Merrel Senise which looked the same, but did not fit the same so I sent them back. I was happy to find this pair, which although somewhat different than the old ones, fit the same and are just as comfortable. I somewhat prefer the old pair, which were suede on the top rather than leather, but since they don't seem to be available anymore, I am happy with these.

These are my third pair of Merrells. A previous pair of their sandals is still holding up quite well, but their appearance limits what I can wear with them. These, on the other hand, are black, and look like a modified thong. I can actually wear these with skirts as well as shorts and jeans. They have decent support for a sandal and are really comfortable, like the other Merrells that I own. Plus, everyone comments on how cute they are!

Comfy and cute! These sandals are comfortable right out of the box. I knew the second I slipped my foot into them, they were keepers. Wish there were some colorful choices - I would get another pair. I bought white.

This is a great sandal. It has all the pluses of a thong with great comfort and without the "flapping" of other thongs.

I bought these Merrell Thongs in black last summer and loved them - and wore them out. Just bought a second pair this month. As long as Merrell makes this shoe, I plan to have a pair!

These are the best. I work in them everyday during the summer and my legs never ache. They do wear down by the end of the season though. You can actually size down if you are in between. I wear a 7 1/2 and ordered a 7 in these.

I absolutely LOVE this sandal. It is completely comfy. I just got back from a three day trip where we were walking all day and my feet felt great on the day I wore these. I can't say enough good things about them. They are probably true to size but just a little on the large side. I usually wear a 5 in sandals and this 5 was just a little long but I love it so much I am keeping them. Zappos is just my favorite online store of all time and I order from them all the time. Their customer service and quick delivery can't be beat.

Merrell's Gardena Thong - I bought this sandal in white and wore it for the first time in Florida. Very comfortable for walking. Has a great cushion in the sole of the sandal. Would recommend to anyone. I buy a lot of Merrell's and love them.

Brands I'd also recommend: The casual Merrell's with a zipper on the front. I have 5 pairs in different colors.

My Merrell Gardena thong sandals arrived yesterday and I love them! Fabulously comfortable and quite stylish. When I travel in the summer, I'll only need to bring 2 pairs of shoes - my white and my black Merrell sandals. They go with everything - shorts, skirts, slacks, capris. Delivery was super fast - I ordered them early Tuesday morning and received them Wednesday afternoon! Thank you!!

Well, I was really excited to get these shoes and I have pretty normal size 8.5 size feet. However, my big toes kept sliding off the side of the shoe. They look great and feel great except for that. Sadly, I'll be returning them. I, in general love Merrells.
