This sandal runs on the narrow side. Have another Merrell Siren Thong, which I love and although I ordered it in same size it's a wider fit and better arch support.

Had to return it. Looks cute but the toe spacer part is very hard and painful. Also the sandals are smaller than Merrell's typical sandals.

These are super cute and sporty. My goal was to find a flip flop that had more support than average flat ones and this works really well. It is a bit wide for my narrow foot, but because of the shape of the footbed and material my feed don't slide around so I'm able to walk just fine in them. Very happy with them!

I love these shoes; they are cute, comfortable, and perfect for walking every day, all day! I am especially pleased with them because I thought that in order to get shoes that were "good for your feet," they would have to be bulky, but these are light and airy. I highly recommend these shoes; they are a great alternative to the cheap plastic/rubber flip flops people tend to wear (which offer no support at all). All in all, a great buy for the upcoming summer season!

Comfy sandals but they don't have the arch support like some of the other Merrell sandals. I wish I had picked another style with arch support.

These are great flip flops. They are sturdy and comfortable. I get a ton of complements. Order a half size down. I usually wear 6.5 in 9 West and most sandals. I ordered a 6 and they are good.

The top of the sandal is made of stretchy material, so it conforms to your foot. Very comfy! I have trouble with shoes due to a high arch, I would by 10 more pairs of these sandals, they are so comfortable.

Amazingly comfortable, it feels as good as barefoot! Good arch support, straps right size, not too big or too small, true to size. Definitely worth the money! And I love Zappos customer service...the best I have found on the internet! No long waiting time on hold, talked to real person quickly, handled matter faster than I expected on my exchange of other shoes for these. Wow! I will be back again and again and will tell everyone I know.

If you're a fan of Merrell footwear, you'll love these. The bottom is supportive (slightly more "rigid" than I expected, not super flexible/foamy), but very comfortable, like you'd expect with Merrell footwear. Great quality sandal. I am happy with this purchase and would recommend them to anyone looking for a quality sandal.

Is this a lot to spend on a flip-flop? Well now, that all depends. I teach Pilates and flip-flops are the easiest thing to throw on to get to & from the studio. My old cheap flip-flops gave me no support, were taxing to keep my feet in as I walked (not good for your body!) and they turned my heels black. But these Merrells are a dream. They feel like they were made for my feet, the toe separator isn't too thick (a common problem for me), and the sole is a treat for my feet. They are narrow for flip-flops but that's part of why they fit so nicely. Heaven.

Love these shoes, but I really love Zappos! I have ordered from them many times and have always received first-class service, whether it was prompt receipt of my order or returning something because it was flawed or did not fit. Thanks to Zappos we can all still enjoy customer service.

These are the cutest pair of Thongs I own. This slightly grey/white color goes with everything. They go with everything. The sole of the shoe will never wear out,very well constructed. The only complaint I have with them is they are not comfortable at all. The foot bed is quite harder than I thought. I still wear often because of the style but if I will be on my feet a lot in a day I choose one of my more comfy thongs

I love Merrell's. They fit me perfectly and give me the support that I need to be a happy girl. This pair, however, rubbed a spot on my right foot enough that I couldn't wear for more than a few minutes. After about 2 weeks, I'm finally able to wear them for longer, but they took a long time to break in.

I am really disappointed in these sandals. I usually love Merrell sandals, but these are both short and narrow. Perhaps more importantly, the piece that goes between the toes is very rough and hurt my skin the minute I put them on my feet. They are going back immediately. Just a note: They have a very sporty look - the bottoms have neon coloring, which is not a bad thing, but something to be aware of in case you hope to use these as cross-overs with skirts etc.

Great sandal - has got a leg up (so to speak) on the average flip flop. Also comfortable and great looking with virtually any summer dress, shorts, jeans or cropped pants.

I love Merrell shoes and these are no exception. Very comfortable, well made and worth the price if you're looking for an everyday sandal that goes with just about everything. Zappos is great too. I returned another sandal that was horribly uncomfortable and they sent replacement immediately at no cost. I live 30 miles from the nearest shoe store so this service is great.

Very comfortable and cool - as in my feet don't get sweaty in these! They have decent arch support and proper soles too. Only downside is the price - big cost for a little pair of summer flip-flops...but hey, they are the perfect shade of pink, and my feet are happy in them all day and night long.

Super cute and super comfortable as expected from the Merrell brand! Unfortunately, I need to return them. I have a few pairs of Merrells that run fairly narrow, these are not as narrow and flop around to much.

These are very cute and comfortable flip flops with some arch support. I ordered two pair in two sizes because I am a 1/2 size. The smaller size fit good.

These shoes are very comfortable. They have some arch support. The do run on the smaller side of the size. My normal size still worked but with no extra space. My heel is at the end. Very cushiony footbed.
