Merrell shoes are the only shoes that I can wear, besides running shoes. I also am on my feet all day so I need comfortable shoes. These shoes are able to accommodate my orthotic arch support and they are stylish. Thank you Merrell and Zappos!

Very comfortable and lightweight shoe. Unlike other mules these do not make my feet look twice as big. I ordered a pair for my mom who had leg surgery recently and she loves them.

Not the most comfortable Merrell shoes. I usually love this brand but have been disappointed with the low comfort level. I fine I avoid wearing them when possible.

This shoe is a floppy mess, and that's coming from someone with wide feet. They almost felt like wearing a loose flip flops. Fine for a very casual shoe/slipper type shoe, but not for much more.

Absolutely love these shoes! They're not only great everyday shoes (so comfortable and supportive!) but perfect for the airport when you have to slip shoes on/off quickly yet have something supportive enough to run from gate to gate to catch the next flight if needed.

I love the encore series but need the adjustable ones because I have a low instep. I love these, but needed to have a cobbler make a hole between the 2nd and 3rd holes as one was too tight and one too loose. The need more holes or a Velcro strap to make them more adjustable. Otherwise, these are great.

These shoes are awesome! No break in, very comfortable footbed and they are stylish yet toned down enough to be worn as work shoes. I have a very bad bone spur in my heel and my podiatrist recommended Merrells. I may have bought them for a specific purpose but I'd wear these any day, anywhere.

I have a pair of brown Merrell slides that I purchased in Dallas about 10 years ago. Now I needed a black pair and knew I loved the Merrell fit and support. I ordered and received my shoes the following day. They are not as snug of a fit as my old shoes but I love them! Very comfortable, no break in needed!

I needed a quick on quick off pair of shoes and these are perfect. Very comfortable. I find they stay in place well enough that I even drive in them at times. Very supportive, and although I don't find clogs stylish in general, these are not too bad.

I love Merrells in general. This shoe lived up to my expectations. I wanted a little dressier Merrell to wear with dress pants, if necessary, in our snowy state of Minnesota.

Fantastic! Just perfect. Comfortable, which is rare for me after 2 major surgeries to rebuild my feet. I like the buckle so I can loosen it to wear with socks and tighten to wear none. Cute too.

Super comfortable, although not the "prettiest" shoe in my closet. I bought these as my indoor shoes. Easy to slip on and off at the door and offers great support. I had to go a whole size up so my heel wouldn't rub on the little ledge.

I absolutely love thise shoes. Even though I'd like a tad more arch support, for what they are they are great. I have several Merrell's. My feet seem to really like them. And I like this shoe. I call them my house shoe...slip right in them. Very comfortable.

This is the most wonderful shoe I have had on in 7 months. I have Achilles tendonitis and bursitis. This shoe is a God send. Thanks you Zappos and Merrell.

After trying to get a pair of Dansko to fit, I came back to Merrell. I can always depend on the fit. These shoes are an addition to the 12 other Merrell that I own. Do I need to say anything else? By the way, Zappos is great to do business with - no hassle returns makes buying easy.

I don't go out to shop anymore. So I order the brands of shoes that I know will fit. The shoes are handsome and comfortable. Zappos shipped promptly.

I have a closetful of Merrells, my #1 shoe. These are my faves. Perfect! Interested to see the other reviews. I also have a high instep and have some problems with the Encore Breeze. I find the Mary Janes less stable than the Merrell with full tops. Those with full backs cut into my Achilles tendon. I repeat these are perfect!

Brands I'd also recommend: Merrell is my 1st, 2nd and 3rd. Peerless.

I found these clogs to be much more stylish than others that I have worn for the sake of comfort. These can be worn comfortably all day long, even with a lot of walking and standing.

Love this shoe. It looks so different than the plain encore that I have been wearing for years. Strange problem, though. The black Encore Buckle shoes fit fine, but the bracken color (brown) ran a half size smaller. This occurred twice, so I finally ordered a half size larger and it fit fine. Never ran into that before. Has anyone else?

Great "work" shoes! Am on my feet most of the day as foodservice mgr. for private school. Love the comfort and fit of these shoes, and ordered them in both brown and black. Kudos to Zappos! Great place to find the right shoes...also, need size 10 1/2...Zappos comes through for me on my size. Very quick to deliver, also!
