I absolutely love these sandals, they are very light on my feet, love the color, however, I have the same complaint some of the other reviews have, the strap that goes across my instep is on such an angle that it cuts into my instep. Just trying these on I noticed it, so definitely could not wear them in hot weather when my feet swell. I am regretfully sending them back. I have two pairs of a similar sandal which I purchased from Zappos and wear them ALL the time around the house, they were called "Merrell Waterpro Animas" that I just love. I ordered them on July 28, 2008, I wish Merrell would bring them back.

Great sandals. They have a vibram sole, which I have found to be very good for my feet. Also, love Zappos' service!

I was looking for a super comfortable pair of walking sandals to take to Rwanda on vacation. These were a last minute splurge, arriving the day before my trip. I was amazed and pleased with how well the sandals performed from the first day with no break in required. Excellent arch support and a sturdy, adjustable fit kept me stable and comfortable on uneven terrain. The design is attractive also. Highly recommend!

Love these sandals. They are a little more feminine looking than previous Merrell sandals but are just as comfortable.

This is a light-weight, very comfortable sandal that keeps feet happy all day. Since I either stand or walk 6 hours a day, I need happy feet. I get them with this sandal. Also, I have narrow feet, but this sandal may be slightly fits very nicely, so I think it may be a slightly narrow M size.

I love this sandal so much that I bought it in both colors. It is light, comfortable, and very supportive, but doesn't have that clunky look that so many sport/hiking sandals have. If it came in more colors, I would buy them too!

Merrell has produced another winner! I usually wear a narrow shoe, but, fortunately, this sandal is adjustable. The first couple of time I wore the shoe the lines on the inside bothered me. After I got used to them this has become my most comfortable sandal ever. The Brindle seems to go with everything and is a nice neutral. How I wish the company would begin making narrow shoes!! The Merrells I have gotten that aren't too wide for me are my favorite and most comfortable shoes.

I love my new sandals from Merrell. I have them in brown and was hoping they would come out with a black pair in my size. The fit is good, little tight when first started to wear them but have now loosened up great. Great to wear with shorts or dress pants.

This sandal is light, very adjustable (although not quite narrow enough for my foot), has good support. I'm using them as a walking/hiking sandal. They feel very stable, with good tread.

Excellent, comfortable shoe. Lightweight and flexible, accommodates my high arched, different-width, bunioned feet wonderfully. Makes hiking a pleasure.

Very comfortable and lightweight. Great arch support. I can be on my feet all day in these and be comfortable. I would prefer straps that were not so stiff for easier packing.

Merrell shoes are a bit more narrow in the front compared to other shoes. For me this meant stretching them out the first time I wore them. Once I did this, they fit perfectly, are very comfortable and durable. The keep a snug shape around my foot, yet do not rub, like other shoes.

My first pair of Merrells. I am very disappointed that the forefront support is not really adjustable. My feet have very different forefront widths and this shoe appeared to be able to adjust. The front strap is really only cosmetic and not useful. A waste of money.

I am a big fan of Merrell's but found this style too stiff and uncomfortable. I wish they would bring back the Via III's, those were the best!

These shoes run too short. I bought them to do a lot of walking and had to return them. I ordered about 5 Merrill shoes and had to return them all. The front angles too much and my end toes don't stay on the shoe.

No amount of adjusting could get these to work for my narrow feet. Plus they were just plain ugly. Maybe they would look better on a wider foot, but not on mine.
