I love the shoe as far as fit and overall comfort. I like the simplicity of the lines and the overall look. The one thing I hate is the rubber coating around the toes. it is the one unattractive attribute - and it is the one part of the shoe that is failing. Within the first month of wearing the shoe, the rubber coating around the toes started to crack, making an unattractive feature even worse. I'm also not a huge fan of the suede. it isn't smooth trimmed, so when it picks up a little dirt, it looks kind of ratty, but as theses are my casual shoes, that is not a major concern for me. Overall i am very happy with the shoe, but there re some glaring issues that Merrell should probably address.
Feels true to size
Feels true to width
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
