I bought these shoes for my husband, who is 6'5" and diabetic. Our podiatrist approved of the shoes for him. He is able to fit an orthotic inside. Merrells are great, and I would highly recommend them for anyone who has foot issues.

I really like these shoes. Very comfortable. I had to go 1 size larger to accommodate my wide foot and it's perfect (and not too long). The color is awesome and had garnered a positive comment or two from others.

Just back from spending a week rafting the Grand Canyon on the Colorado River. These shoes held up perfectly, drained fast and worked fine for wet or dry hiking. They were fairly porous to fine sand, but a pair of ultralight hiking socks made for easy walking and no sunburned ankles. A good rinse in the river at nightfall and the shoes were dry by morning. Terrific traction on the raft and on slippery rocks, good support for hiking. Very pleased with my Merrells.

I've had the same pair for 4 years now - 5-6 days a week - and they're still holding up - that's after slogging thru mud, kayaking, hunting... You name it. They've been in the Atlantic, the Gulf, several rivers and a dozen streams. If u consider cost per wear, these are the cheapest shoes I've ever worn. Buying my second and third and fourth pair now before I can't find them again. Amazed that they're still being made and sold. But with quality like this, I guess I shouldn't be surprised at all.

This has a great feel to it. Hugs your feet and still has great air flow.

I found the construction of the shoes to be below what I would expect for a shoe at this price. For example, the insole came out the first time I took my foot out, and some of the shoe was poorly sewn together (unfinished stitches in the tongue, frayed fabric after light use, etc.). Additionally, I found the shoe to run a half size large for me (typically wear 10-1/2, but own a 10 in this shoe). On the positive side, the shoe looks very nice, and is very comfortable. I'm just not impressed with the construction is all.

Just returned from a trip to Costa Rica where these shoes were my primary choice. They endured some hiking, water sports, and other rugged activity. The support is pretty good. I particularly like the light weight and breathability of the shoe. I wish Merrell had ensured that the inside walls of the shoes were softer/smoother since these can double as water shoes. Some of the stitching and seams are rough and can be uncomfortable without socks. I ordered a couple pairs of this shoes and both had the same roughness. That keeps it from getting a 5 star review.

I tried to buy a next generation minimalist Merrells, now discontinued, that I have been trying to kill for 5 years now. Still wearing them...these were the only ones in the lineup that looked even remotely similar. They are not as good. Cushioning isn't quite there, some of the synthetic overlays look a bit cheesy, I have more pressure on my instep too - all in all not a total disappointment - its an adequate shoe, but not the fantastic shoe I bought from Merrell all these years ago.

I don't like them, I been wearing Waterpro for 10 years now. This is my least favorite design. The shoes don't form to your feet well, the shoe strings are too long, the soles are too thick which makes it difficult to judge edges.

I use these for wet wading. I have seen that both pairs I have owned (one purchased the other a replacement) had the straps fray and then break within a fairly short period of time. Aren't other people having this problem? I am very surprised that this has not come up for others as it has happened to me on the two pairs I have owned.
