I ordered these shoes for a trip to a golf tournament in the size that I usually wear. They felt too tight, so I returned them and got a half size larger which worked. I wore them to the tournament for one full day during which we did a lot of walking...big mistake as the sole was too thin, and by the end of the day, my feet and legs were suffering. It's a great shoe for wearing around if you are not going to do a lot of walking. Really like the looks and have gotten many compliments about them.

I'm so disappointed in these. I usually love Merrell shoes, but these are just not comfortable. I expected them to feel like a sneaker, but the sole is rock hard and there is very little cushioning. I even tried using a better insole but they still aren't comfortable, especially for walking outdoors on pavement. Too bad, because I like the way they look.

Lightweight, attractive, and very comfortable. My regular size fit well with my orthotics. Not as much arch support as I would have thought, given all selling points of being tailored to women's stride & preventing pronation. But fine with my own orthotics. I'd recommend this shoe highly. And Zappos is awesome, as always. Pretty much the only place I buy shoes these days!

Bought these shoes for my girlfriend, she loves them! She has always sworn by Merrells and how comfortable they are. She raves about them so much that I bought another pair for my mother as well.

I like the fit, they are comfortable but they don't have enough arch support if using to walk long distances. I didn't buy them for that, so they are okay for me. I like the colors too. Not easy to have an orange that is muted and coordinated.

Excellent shoes for moderate hiking. I did have to put pads to raise my foot in back, as the back of the shoe is high and rubbed until I raised my foot a bit.

I purchased the Mimosa Lace in Cocoa and love the look of them. I was looking for a comfortable walking shoe that had a slimmer look than a typical workout or hiking shoe and these were perfect. They are comfortable for daily walking or short hikes but I don't think they are made to do any serious trekking in. I gave them four stars in comfort because the insole padding is comfortable but light. I have had other Merrells that had a bit more cushioning inside. As always, Zappos is the best...free next-day shipping. Thanks!

Very comfortable, spongy insole and extremely flexible outer sole. It would make a great biking shoe because of the sleek, foot-hugging style. I ordered a half size larger so it wouldn't be too snug, just as a matter of preference. Cute, too!

I ordered the Mimosa Lace in the olive suede and a pair of simple brand suede tennies (half the price) as well. I tried on the simple ones first. They were pretty cute and pretty comfortable. I tried on the Mimosa - no comparison. They are so comfortable. They are very cushioned and felt perfectly formed to my feet. Also the style/cut is low-profile and makes my feet look smaller than they are. The Dusty olive color is pretty and will match everything. I love these shoes!

These shoes work for me. I like the flexible sole, and they can tie up around my narrow feet to enhance support. A bit more cushioning would be good. My favorite shoes are big clunky running shoes. But I can take a day on pavement in these, and they are cuter/dressier than my Saucony Grid Cohesion 4.

I love the look and comfort of these shoes. My normal size is nine, and these nines fit well with a thin sock or barefoot. I will wear them with jeans and shorts. My only complaint is that they offer very little support, so if you're considering them for hiking or serious walking, don't expect much support. The reason I gave them a four-star overall was because of the lack of support. But they are really cute!

Been wearing these shoes for a good few weeks now, and I have to say they were definitely not what I expected. First thing that hit me was how different the color of the dusty olive was. In pictures it looks more brown (which I would've liked better), but when I got it in my hands it was very much a dark olive green. The soles are pretty good with traction, however the third day of owning these shoes I went to have a full day at a picnic in the park and I was all over sliding on the dry grass. These shoes are very cushioned on the bottom, so I can walk around for a long time with them on... and the light weight definitely helps. I started with two 6.5s (got them in the dark gray too), but ended up returning the dusty olive's 6.5 for a size smaller, 6. I don't wear thick socks so having almost 1.5 inches from my longest toe to the front end of the shoe was weird. The 6 gives me that secure fit, and the laces still seem to pull everything in without it looking like I'm busting out. I have "hobbit feet" so they are wide and do stretch out the shoe a bit, but most of the time my pants cover it up, so I'm fine. I wear these pretty much every day (especially with jeans) and I love how this shoe is VERY flexible. Those of you looking for a support shoe, this isn't it, but if you are looking for cushioned, light weight, and HIGHLY flexible shoe, this is great! I probably wouldn't take this shoe on the various terrain I'm in while traveling, but for just easy every day wear, it works great. Now if the colors were better this would have been perfect. Just watch out for the different fit in the different colors. Like I said before, the 6 in dusty olive worked for me but the 6 in the dark gray REALLY didn't... smashed my toes so I had to return the dark gray. The 6.5 in dark grey fits my 6 to 7 sized feet (though could be a smidge tighter), but I guess this shoe is just extra long.

I think these shoes look super cute (even with my big size 10 feet), but they won't work for me. I need a very supportive shoe for work, but there is not very much support here, and the soles are fairly thin. The shoe seems a little narrow, too, and just a tiny bit too short. I'll be sending them back and keeping the Keen Amblers I also bought.

These shoes have great style but are uncomfortable. I read other reviews saying the same but decided to buy them anyway...they are very narrow and have little support.

This shoe looks more stylish on the website than in reality. I found it comfortable but not at all supportive. Not up to Merrell's usual high standards.

Pretty sneakers, but the back is a bit too hard, and they scratch my heel quite a lot. I'll try them a couple of days longer, and in case bring them back. I normally have a 7.5/8 and I had to get a 7.

I bought these in size 5, grey/black. They look great and are very comfortable, but were a bit deep and I had to get some heel cushioning insoles just to raise my foot so that the sides of the shoe would not rub my ankles. But I have very small feet and have to do this in a lot of shoes, so that may not be an issue for everyone. After that they have been very comfortable and I wore them all day the first time I put them on.

The right shoe was fine, but the left one did not fit comfortably. Maybe it was just that pair. It hit my foot on the outside. They did not feel as supportive as most Merrells.

While I would love to keep and take these shoes to Europe for my primary walking/light hike shoe, the ongoing negative reviews about support have me thinking this is not a worthy shoe at this cost. I am a double AA narrow and they seem to fit well...too bad. I can't wear them long enough to tell if they are crap and then lose the amount of hard earned money. What was Merrill thinking in the lack of support structure? Form must follow function!

Do not buy these shoes. They have a major design flaw where the collar of shoe rubs ankle bone. After wearing them occasionally for two months this still hurts on both feet. Also, they are not thick enough under the balls of my feet. Do not do it. Trust me.

These were totally comfortable after a long hike today. When I opened the box I thought they were two sizes too small. Not so, they just looked small. I picked them for style and they did not disappoint there plus the comfort is fine, equal to the more expensive models.
