by fromWould buy again and again I have now used these several times on trails and they have been great shoes. They are very comfortable and flexible over uneven terrain. They are light weight and my feet stayed cool all day. They are comfotable and good looking enough that I wear them around town too and am considering buying a second pair just for daily use. I would recommend these shoes to everyone from hikers, backpackers, walkers, and just for dailu wearing around town.

by fromComfort I would have liked a heavier sole, but I needed a soft upper to keep from getting a sore right lateral malleolus. Everything's a trade off.

by fromGreat Multi-use shoe I wore nothing but these for 30 days straight and encountered a range of terrain during that time (urban, hiking in the alps, coastal treks, and desert mountains). They performed almost flawlessly and still look brand new. The traction is very hit or miss in wet situations and for the first 10 days there was an odd raised support on the outside edge of the foot which somewhat uncomfortable. I don't know if it eventually compressed or if I just stopped noticing. Either way these are very comfortable with a wide foot box and can be taken up/down/across just about anywhere. If I had a choice I would go everywhere barefoot so that will give you an idea of how little "support" these offer. I tried on a size 12 and a 13 and wound up with the 13. What I need is a 12.5 in this shoe.

by fromawesome shoe for multipurpose use I bought these for playing disc golf when my dog ate my last pair. These perform well on all of the different tee pads, (cement, dirt, grass) as well as quick hikes in the sand dunes down from my house.

by fromLightweight Leather-Free Shoes I've been searching for good quality "vegan" (leather free) shoes for months. I couldn't find anything suitable on the market until these came out. Even though my leather free restriction excluded 95% of the shoe market, I don't feel like I'm making any compromises with these shoes. I ordered these online without trying them out first, and yet they fit perfectly. They are lightweight, durable, and have excellent traction. I use these every day and have also taken them on difficult hiking terrain without any issues.

by fromGreat for long day hikes! I purchased these for long (14 to 20 miles)day hikes in the Shenandoah Natl Park during the warmer months. I've had them out on two long hikes on trails featuring mixed and rocky terrain. The shoes exceeded my expectations. They fit true to size, are very comfortable, lightweight, provide good support , and provide good traction. Merrell has hit a homerun with these shoes.

by fromBest shoes I've ever owned I bought these shoes because I needed a wide toe box to fit my fat feet. I have owned them for about three months and have worn them everyday. They are extremely comfortable and well made. They are wide enough that I was actually able to buy the correct size rather than a half size larger which I normally have to do. I liked these so much that I bought a pair of the mid highs as well for the ankle support in hiking and I love them both. If you have fat feet, this is the shoe for you!
