My son is typically hard to fit when it comes to shoes. This was the first pair that fit on the first try! He says they are very comfortable and fit well on his typically narrow feet. They have held up very well being worn daily over the last several months. Would definitely buy these again.

My son LOVES these shoes! I was surprised when he picked these but the splash of yellow reeled him in! He says they are very comfortable and recommends them highly!

My 5 year old loves these shoes! Very comfortable and allow his foot to breathe...which equals no sweaty socks! The shoes are very lightweight which he enjoys. And the green is a great alternative to the typical white, black, or neon color choices.

One of the best sneakers I've bought my son in a long time. Flexible sole and not over the top with the cumbersome designs and features that so many boys sneakers now have. These sneakers don't get in the way of letting him run as fast as his legs (and feet) will take him.

These fit my son comfortably, right away. They are light but have a rugged sole so it will be great for outdoors in hot Texas. They fit a bit tight on his instep which is actually pretty high, but he still managed to tie them and they didn't feel tight like most shoes. The heel was also wide enough which is often a problem for him.

My 6 year old son loves these sneakers! Great looking sneaker. I did have to return the same pair for my older child because the tongue on the inside was too think (not comfortable for him). I love the way the sneaker looks as well.

I'm an adult with a small shoe size. I love these shoes!. They are lightweight and flexible. Moisture is wicked away, so my feet don't feel like yuck at the end of the day. I can work a 10-11 hour day in them and my feet do NOT hurt. I'm going to buy a couple more pairs in different colors.

Lightweight. Fits the foot well. Sizing seems right on. Great style. My son loves these shoes, and he can run fast in them.

These are great shoes! They are versatile and my son seems to be comfortable in them. The only knock is that they are white, but I knew that when I bought them.

My 8 year old LOVES these. We were looking for something to replace his old Merrell's (with the velcro strap) since they were starting to come apart at the toe. He picked these based on design and they he says they are very comfortable and that he thinks he runs faster in them. Great shoes and, as ever, superb service!

I ordered the green for my 5 year old son. He loves them! He's also a big Oregon Ducks fan, so the colors were perfect. I agree with another reviewer that it's hard to find boy shoes without a ton of "stuff" all over them. I also can't stand the clunky and heavy look so many have in his size. These are simple, clean lines, and light weight. I have washed them once all ready and air dried and they still look great. This is our first pair of Merrell's and they are holding up beautifully to a kid that LOVES to run! I ordered them in the morning and we had them the next afternoon. You can't beat that.

Awesome shoes but they run a whole size smaller than Keens, Saucony, New Balance, and Sperry. My son wears a 9 in all of these and the Merrell in a 10 fits him perfect.

My kids like this shoe a lot. It is light and flexible, with just enough protection in the midsole. The outsole is not as durable as I'd hoped. I was expecting it to last as well as the Vibram soles on their Merrell Trail Gloves. With a more durable sole, this would be a five-star shoe.

Great light weight summer sneaker. Great shoe for boys with wide feet. Medium width runs fairly wide. Only down side, profile on sole lasted only two months of constant wear in school and rough playing during recess. My son is very hard on his shoes and these Merrells did not disappoint. No seams torn, despite its light construction. Ordering second pair.

Merrell makes a great shoe -- just not this one. My son has had this shoe for one month today. It already has a tear on the inside right shoe and shoes a lot of wear and tear. His other Merrells last 8 months; so, I'm quite disappointed in the durability. On the positive, my son said they were very comfortable and were true to size.

My son wore these shoes for 7 months and had 5 big holes all the way through the soles of his feet. Not super impressed with the shoes. Would not buy this shoe again.

I bought these for my 8 year old son. The mouth of the shoe collapses when he puts them on...from the first day. There is not enough structure in that part of the shoe. Also, it runs small. The design of the shoe looks good, but I would not buy this again.

These are so flimsy, they would not hold up for long. They're going back. This is my first Merrell purchase, and the last.

We have had these shoes for two weeks and the grey lining at the toe is already worn through on one foot. I knew they would show dirt since they are white, but these shoes seem to be a dirt magnet and looked dirty and dingy after just a few days of normal wear. These shoes aren't the Merrell quality that I have come to expect. I do not recommend purchasing these shoes.

Great shoes, but not as durable as I had hoped - my son has holes in both shoes after only 4 months. Pity, as I love Merrell shoes, and they are a great fit.

I was so disappointed in this shoe. I bought a pair for my 4-year-old. After 2 weeks, the fabric around the laces started to fray. I contacted Zappos, and they were wonderful about sending another pair. Unfortunately, the same thing happened. Maybe the fit was strange on him, but they seemed to fit okay, and he loves them. I'm afraid to buy another pair of Merrells.

My 7 1/2 year old is measuring a solid 1 1/2 size shoe. So I ordered these in a 2. His toe was right up to the edge. Reordered in a 2 1/2 and while his toe is fine, the rest of the shoe is very wide on him. Very disappointed. Going with a pair of Keen's instead.
