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.

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.

I wanted to love these but unfortunately, they did not fit well. The length was fine but the band across the top of the foot was extremely oversized. As a result, it's hard to keep them on my feet and they flop around. I feel like I could walk out of them! I don't have particularly thin feet either! Too bad.

Extremely comfortable shoe. Straps could be a little tighter but overall a good fit. Have 3 pairs of this style & absolutely love them.

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.

I only wear Merrell sandals but this one doesn't measure up. I also ordered the Avian slide and it had great support and good fit. The Lorelei did not have nearly as much support and was a bit loose in the fit. I'll stick with the Avian!

Merrill Thongs can't be beat!! I have bought several Merrill shoes and wear nothing else. A new style may catch my eye but Merrill win every time. Besides being so very comfortable they are hard to wear out.

These are cute looking, but as others have said, they really make a loud "flip-flop" noise! I sent them back. They weren't nearly as comfortable as other Merrell shoes, either (yes, I realize they're thong/flip style, so shouldn't expect much).

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.

I have 2 pairs of merrell shoes and 2 pairs of their thongs. Order the same size, but my heel hangs over the back on this pair. The toes are fine, but the heal is not long enough. Why?

Style is cute. Arch support is a bit lower than other Merrell styles, but this also seems to be a lighter, less clunky flip than other styles.

Love these! I own several pairs of Merrell sandals. They are great comfort and come in many colors. I choose Merrell again and again. You can't beat the comfort and color selection. I do order a size 7 in Merrell rather than the 7 1/2 or 8 I usually take.

I love the color, but I guess I am used to the support of my Gardenia Thong flips. This pair does not have the strong arch and heel support of the Gardenia. But nice for kicking around.

Brands I'd also recommend: none, I stick to Merrell's!

Recently got these thongs in blue. I thought what's the difference in flip flops but I was wrong. These have so much more support and comfort. They feel great but the toe piece could be softer. Next I want hollyleaf.

I love Merrells and have many pair in my size (9), but this seemed a bit narrow/small. Sending them back for a 9.5. Looked cute in general (I got the pink), not the normal boring athletic flip flop like other brands. Hoping the 9.5 fits better.

Foot bed is narrow. Toes hang over sides and I have med width. The straps are perfect and comfortable. The length is very close also. They look too small but I don't think a larger size would fix the width so returming.

I love these shoes. I wore them at Disney World for 4 days. My back and legs never got tired. This is first time I've ordered shoes online and the fit was fine . I'm probably going to order another pair in another color.

These are not very comfortable shoes to walk in. Standing is fine, supportive, etc. but while walking I find the bit in between the toes quite uncomfortable. Also, the shoes are a little heavy.

I did not think that Merrell thongs could ever disappoint, unfortunately these did. I have many Merrell thongs and need to replace some. I struggled to find a cute and casual pair. I settled for these which look like any brand's thongs. I was unhappy with Merrell for the first time. The post is uncomfortable between the toes. The footbed lacked some cushioning that I expect from Merrell.
