At the last minute before a vacation to Kauai, I realized that I needed something sturdier than flip-flops to do some hiking on the island's trails - something with good tread, traction and airflow. Zappos' elves did a heroic job of getting these Merrells to me on the eve of my departure. I then proceeded to do what all advice said not to do, which was to skip any break-in period and take the shoes straight to the muddy, slippery, rocky and steep trails. These shoes were great! They fit comfortably, my feet were well-supported, and I felt sure-footed on the slippery slopes. Bonus feature for those buyers who will take them hiking on Kauai - they are the same color as the red mud, so if you are not meticulous about cleaning them after hiking, they do not really show the staining. I am very happy with my choice. I should mention that I tried Keens. They are good shoes but are just too wide for my feet. When I say the Merrells felt true to width, I mean that they fit my narrowish feet nicely.

They were very comfortable at first. I wore them at home for about a half hour before I couldn't wait to get them off. Too much plastic stuff. And my feet hurt when I walked. Even sitting they didn't feel good to me.

I first tried this shoe on with thin liner socks and loved them! Later, I took off my socks since I planned to wear them without and they hurt my feet. The stitching is very scratchy and uncomfortable on my skin.

I absolutely dig the style of these and wanted to love them. I am not a huge fan of sandals and these covered my feet the best of several that I tried. They fit well, true to size, but unfortunately were just too flat. No arch support at all and no bounce in the step, almost like an aqua sock. Since I needed something that I could wear all day at a theme park and also on a boat, I opted for the Teva Abbett, which does not look as cool, but is a better sandal at a much lower price.

Perfect. I purchased these and a pair of Keens for a trip to Costa Rica. I returned the Keens and kept these. They're so much more comfortable. They were great in the water, walking around hiking in the rain. They wash easily. Perfect.

I love the feel of these shoes! I am a size 11, and they are a perfect fit, except...the heels are just a little too loose and will probably get more so over time, and there is no way to adjust them. Bummer. Also, I did not realize that the back heel is a sling, so not workable for hiking.

This is a well constructed water sandle kind of shoe... I was hopeful until I wore it around the house for a while, alas, my large toe joint was fused two years ago, and because of the way it is raised up a bit, one of the straps up by my metatarsals rubbed painfully and left a significant red spot on my skin... a signal that this is not the shoe for me. No fault of the shoe... I'm grateful for Zappos return policy and customer service!

Bombed out on Merrill again. I ordered three pairs of Merrill shoes and none seem to fit. I really wanted to like these shoes but again, they seem a bit too narrow and a bit too short. Without socks, my foot sticks to the bottom and the rubbery insole just feels weird. This shoe would also look better with a dark lace. It looks silly with the yellow. I'm returning them and will continue on my quest for the perfect shoe to explore the Mayan ruins.

Love the style and has a good fit. Solid construction so it needs to be broken in a bit but so far I love it.

Bought these in March 2016 for trip to Oahu, Hawaii. Love them for kicking around town...even in the rain. But, they do not grip wet or muddy rocks during a rainforest hike (although they did fine on ocean lava rocks). I didn't fall, but had to be super-duper careful. (This is obvious in mud, but people are saying these shoes grip muddy rocks...and they just don't sorry.) The sole is comfy and the width is good for my bunion-feet. But, the backstrap is not adjustable, so plan on your feet moving around a bit b/c you can only draw the string so tight before it becomes too tight on top of your foot. Also, the support of a hiking shoe just isn't there with these shoes. I'd get a trail runner if you re looking for beefy athletic support. If Merrell included an adjustable backstrap and made the soles truly non-slip, these would be perfect. Other benefits: These are super cute with jeans, dresses, skirts, shorts, etc. and I'll be wearing them for yard work, general running around, wading through the river, bike-riding. They dry fast too!

I've had a pair of these for about 2 years and am still wearing them (granted I don't wear them in winter months). They are my 'go to' shoe for casual outings - walking in town, light hiking on trails, beach walks, and more. Mine are grey with teal and yellow trim and laces. I need a wide, roomy toe box and these fit the bill while making my feet look narrower than they are. And these shoes stay on snugly without rubbing or discomfort. I will purchase another pair when I can find colors I like again, not big on the flashy purple or other themes, and I don't want black.

This is my second pair of these, the first pair lasted five years. Because they keep my feet cool, I wear them in the spring, summer and fall. There is room for Dr. Scholl's arch support as needed. I have wide feet, and I love these shoes.

This sandal fits well and is comfortable so far. It is roomy enough to accommodate my custom orthotics as well.

Personally I LOVE this shoe. I needed something for Galapagos and I read ALL the reviews of the Keens, the Tevas and a few others in addition to these. I ordered a bunch all at once because don’t we all love Zappos for letting us do that! Anyway, I find these to be the easiest to wear with or without a sock, no rubbing and no break in time. I’ve been wearing them around the house and to yoga and errands and I feel super comfortable but they have not been tried for the Galapagos yet. They are lighter than the keens and less bulky than the tevas. There is no adjustment on the back heel so at first I worried and tried both a six and six and a half but stuck with the six and a half. The back moves a little but it doesn’t blister but some people might not like that. I like that I can slip into and out of them quickly. I like the adjustable cord on top because my foot changes size throughout the day and if I sit too long - simple to each down and adjust without fully untying a traditional lace. I think I learned that ultimately you just have to try them all yourself. I hated al the others that a lot of people swear by so I guess I’m just a Merrell girl as they have worked for me in the past in other styles. As I’ve aged my foot has gotten a little wider across the front and I have a bunion on one foot and my arches have fallen a bit. My ankle is still normal to narrow. These don’t come up high in back on the ankle and I liked that too. Best of luck to al finding the perfect water shoe for your journeys.

I’m a loyal Merrell wearer and got these in the same size as my hiking boots. Fits perfectly. They are light, but offer support. They feel soft and already broken in. I use these for water activities and hikes when Im crossing a lot of rivers. Love the color!!! I also love that I can wear these out and about with regular clothes.

I love this shoe so much I just received my third pair. I live on a river and these are perfect for the short but steep hike to and from the dock. I also swim in them and they hold up well.

I absolutely love this shoe. After having 2 knee surgeries and 2 foot injuries, I really need a shoe to provide support. I bought this shoe for our trip to Croatia and it fit the bill perfectly. I wore it swimming (as the beaches in Croatia are rocky), rock climbing, hiking through the mountains, and cliff jumping. The shoe is incredibly supportive, very light on my feet (which is why I chose this shoe over Keens which I felt were heavy), comfortable, and stylish. MERRELL— please make this exact shoe for kids! I purchased MERRELL Hydro 2.0 sneaker/sandals for my 3 Kids and they were not that great. The Hydro 2.0 was very heavy and made it difficult to swim. The Velcro on the Hydro 2.0 kept coming undone. So please make the All Out Blaze Sieve for Kids!!

I bought these in anticipation of white water rafting. The rafting didn't happen but i had an opportunity to wear these during other portions of my trip, mostly during the airport travel and in the cooler mornings/evenings. They were immediately comfortable - I haven't worn them while doing any hiking or for very long periods of time but i don't anticipate any issues with them. I'm between a size 5.5 and 6, usually a 6 in closed toe shoes and the size 6 in these fit perfectly. I have the Castle Rock color and liked that they gave me a little color without being obnoxious and i could wear them with everything I brought along on the trip (outdoorsy/sporty clothes). One note - I mostly wore them with socks because it was during cooler weather and my feet get cold; when i wore them without socks the first day I had them it was pretty warm and i don't think they breathe particularly well. But that wasn't an issue for me as I had planned to wear either sandals when it was warm or actual hiking shoes on the trail.

Wore them for a weekend of whitewater rafting and camping without time to break them in first and they were GREAT! Very comfortable! They dry pretty quickly. They feel and look far less clunky than the similar Keen water shoes. Great purchase!

This is my second pair of the All Out Blaze Sieve. The first pair I wore into the ground, literally, left it at the end of a trip at the departing hotel, they had done their time. Waited 2 months to order another pair and I don't know why I waited so long. The All Out Blaze Sieve is not a heavy duty hiking shoe, but it will take you everyplace else in comfort and style, and I use wear them frequently for hiking on light trails. Ordered it in the Cadet Blue, a color that has a lot of lavender in it. LOVE the color and it gets compliments everywhere. Merrell: DO NOT DISCONTINUE THIS SHOE!

Awesome shoes! Light, comfy alternative to bulky hiking shoes. No need to break in as these are super right out of the box. I returned my first pair for a half size smaller as they run big. My toe was below the black rubber in front. Half size down was perfect!

I loved them right out of the box! So comfortable I worked out in them. I had a pair of Keens that needed to be replaced and my boyfriend has told me to try Merrill’s for years. So glad I did! They are way better made then my Keens. Can’t wait to try them out in Gulf Hagas Maine!
