I just ordered my 8th pair of these shoes. I have bad knees, and foot issues. These are the only shoes I can wear 24/7. My left knee is bone on bone. I have had at least 50 other pair of shoes, constantly searching, but I can't beat these shoes. I get lots of compliments on these shoes. That's Zappos for being my perfect shoe shopping store and to all the wonderful people that work there.

I loved these shoes, but they wouldn't stay on. My old Merrells that I loved had a 1.5 inch back and these only have a 1 inch back (measuring from the back of the sole up the material). I don't want to curl my toes and walk slow in order to keep them on, so I had to return them, even though I loved them.

I usually wear Keens band shoes but haven't been able to find my favorite style in a while. These are my go to shoes these days. They have a slim smooth style that I wear with pants and skirts. They are light weight but have incredible support. I purchased the black and I am looking at the other colors now. The only issue I've had is the label is glued at the top of the shoe and on the right one it rubs the top of my foot if I don't wear socks or hose. These are so easy on my knees. I love them.

Upper part of the shoe provides no support. If your foot pronates, this is not the shoe for you.

I live in Florida and this are perfect for our climate. I have these shoes in 3 colors and my husband has them in two. I suffer from achilles tendinitis bursitis and these are the only shoes I can wear at the moment. I live in them 24/7. And of course, what can I say about Zappos? They are the best. I no longer go to stores for shoes. I get them the next day from Zappos.

These are comfortable shoes that provides lots of support, are easy to slip on and off, have insoles that can be removed and replaced by an orthotic, and are not too warm. These are my "indoors" shoes which I wear only inside my house, but if I forget and wear them outside, the bottoms of the shoes are easy to wash off and dry quickly.

This is about 1/2 size too large. Either that or I should not have ordered a wide.

The shoe is very comfortable, however I felt that it is about a half size larger than marked, and ran slightly narrow. Also Silver is much more metallic in person than it appears in the picture, I was hoping it would be more like a light grey. I originally ordered the Silver in an 8, but exchanged for a 7.5 W in black.

I love Merrell shoes. I a happy that this shoe comes in a wide width. I'm sending back the 6 1/2 to exchange it for a 6. I never wear a size 6, so I am wondering if the wide width had anything to do with the shoe being 1/2 size larger.

I first ordered my regular size , 8, in wide and it was too loose. The 7.5 in wide was a better fit. But the wide size, generally, seems extra wide to me. I have a very wide foot but the shoe could be narrower, even with sizing down. It's probably because I have been wearing the M for so long.

Brands I'd also recommend: I wish I could find other brands as comfortable as Merrells. I am spoiled for anything else which is a problem when I have to get dessed up

I am overall delighted with this product, my first Merrell encounter, and I appreciated the info about the design for female anatomy. The only negative: the awful industrial smell that is slow to offgas, and I worry about conditions to factory workers, and to absorption by my feet.

These shoes are great! I work 12 hour shifts in a hospital. I am on my feet the whole time, walking five miles each day. I used to come home and my feet would ache for days. My Merrells keep my feet feeling much better than my pricey tennis shoes ever did. I highly recommend them for anyone with pain from being on their feet all day. I also have very wide feet, and in a wide they are quite roomy.

Great summer clog! Check the other colors too! black runs a little narrower and is not quite as soft as the other colors. On the pro side, the sole is back and so matches the shoe. Other colors are more gym shoeish with a white side and sole.

I was looking for a comfortable pair of vegan shoes, something that I could wear with jeans or work pants, and these really fit the bill! They're comfy and easy to slip into (I got the wide size and they're just perfect) and I'll order these again. Only downside is that they seem to retain more foot odor than other shoes I've had, but it's a minor inconvenience that is easy to overlook because they're so comfortable. It'd be great if Merrell created a faux/synthetic leather version that includes wide sizes, so it'd be even more work-friendly (hint, hint).

What's not to love about this shoe? At "my" swimming pool recently, happened to look at the shoes lined up...of 6 pair, 3 were Merrell's. They are true to size, always comfortable, rugged and perfect for anyone's casual lifestyle. The best!

I love these! Merrell has a great reputation and I knew I had to buy comfortable practical shoes instead of just cute, often uncomfortable shoes, and these fit the bill. My feet are wide and the wide width fits great. They are extremely comfy right out of the box on bare feet.
