I have had these shoes for going on five years now and they have been amazing! I am going to be buying another pair as I have almost worn through the soles of the old ones. There is nothing wrong with the old ones at all - nothing has come unglued and no stitches have come out. There has been some wear on the leather around the toes of the shoe but I consider that to be par for the course for a pair of shoes that I have worn nearly every day for so long. I did find that after a while I needed to put in a different insole, which was fine by me as I have a pair of custom ones that I love. Unlike other shoe manufacturers, Merrell makes it so the insoles are easily swapped with whichever brand you like best. The only reason I rated this shoe "3" for comfort instead of "5" is that I found the original insole to be not quite as cushy as I would like - although I do like a super cushy shoe! But they're perfect with the custom insoles.

Bummer. The are ugly. Face it. But I was buying them for comfort over style. Sadly, they not only run large, but are super wide at the heel, causing my heels to slip with each step. Great Zappos service, as always, but the shoes must go back.

I have foot pain and problems with stability. I wanted a casual slip on that was healthy for my foot. This moccasin is awesome! And lots of toe room. So comfy!

I have leg trouble, and I only wear Merrell's. All my other Merrell's are suede. They are uber comfortable, but I cook a lot, and the suede ones don't look good with spots all over them. I wanted something I could clean and also looked more dressy. These fill the bill. A little stiffer than the suede ones, but that's fine. Hard to get on the first few times - I had to buy a shoehorn, but extremely comfortable and supportive for long walks and on-your-feet work.

Best shoes I have ever worn! And I have tried many high quality brands such as Ecco and others that provide "shock absorbent" heels to minimize back problems. I will forever buy Merrell Encore Eclipse for work and everyday wear.

I love these shoes. I originally bought them as a back up to my Keens for a trip to Europe. They performed great there and lasted over 5 years. I just replaced them today. These are my dressier shoes as I am on my feet all day at work and usually wear Keens or Danskos. Merrell thanks for keeping these in production!

This is my second pair of these particular shoes, my first pair lasted me about 3-4 years before I felt I needed to replace them; these shoes allow me to be on my feet sometimes for 12+ hours at a time without my feet hurting.

The arch support is wonderful and I know I have the traction in the winter months. They are great to wear under pants as the style is a little more dressed up.

Lucky Duck I am...found these on sale. Love Merrells, anyway! Only shoe that I can buy and immediately wear, without breaking in my feet! I find that I need a larger toe-box, and Merrells fits the bill! They could use a little more padding inside, but the insole is easily removable to insert desired orthotic, etc. Bought a black pair...good with jeans or nice slacks. (Sorry, I can't do heels and don't, seriously, know why one would, without the feet suffering.) Love these!

I am a big fan of Merrell's and these did not disappoint. I am on my feet most of the day and found these shoes very comfortable. Most of my other Merrell's are slides so these are a nice change.

I love these shoes. I usually have to wear orthotics and I don't need them with these shoes because they have great arch support. They have toe room also, which I love. Merrell makes great shoes!

These shoes are being used as "duty" shoes, as I am a nurse. They are my first non-white nursing shoe. I picked them for comfort, as Merrells have proved themselves over and over. So far they are working very well. I usually wear my shoes for up to a year.

I bought these same shoes at a local store a few years ago and they lasted forever but this store changed their product and stopped carrying this shoe. Found them at Zappos and extremely happy I did. I work on a concrete floor and am prone to back problems. These shoes have lots of support and last several years before needing replaced.

Great shoes! Supportive but lightweight. Water resistant enough to keep your toes dry in wet weather. A bit chunky looking, but much nicer looking than athletic shoes for traveling and touring.

This was a smart buy, classy looking and fit to show off with jeans or slacks, this Merrell is all you need to make the scene, casual or not. I turn to Zappos every time for quick service and accuracy on every count. Thanks to all the crew!

I so wish that I could put on any shoe as some people can do but that is not the case for me. I have any awful time finding shoes that fit and feel good. With these Merrell clogs, I can wear them all day long without foot or leg pain. I am in love!

I have been fighting foot pain for two years. After just one day of wearing these shoes, I am now pain free! My closet is now full of Merrell shoes and I'll wear nothing else! Thank you Zappos for being well stocked and shipping fast and free!

These shoes are great; plenty of toe room, lightweight, a supportive heel counter, and a smooth footbed to keep my feet comfy all day long. I wear them for days when I will have to be on my feet or walking for long periods of time, and want something that looks nicer than sneakers.
