Verified Buyer Reviewed by Lili from Boston, MA on Tuesday, September 11, 2012Cute boots, but size is small. I normally wear a 6. It felt like 5.5
- Pros: Too small
Verified Buyer Reviewed by country mama in the city from Oakland, CA on Thursday, September 6, 2012These seem to run large, but also to just have a very gappy fit around the foot. The shoe just bludged out in strange ways and was really not wearable at all. Usually Merrell is such a great brand. I'm not sure what went wrong with these.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Smee from Wisconsin on Tuesday, September 4, 2012Ordered these Merrells based on previous Merrell experience. Nice quality, comfort, color, materials, and workmanship. Nice low key red. Wear a 10 and ordered the same. Good length but a bit wide for my barefoot. Wear a liner and works just fine. Mary Jane style looks great w/casual dresses, shorts, and pants. Satisfied.

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Mollie from Burlington, VT 05446 on Thursday, August 30, 2012These are mainly made for barefoot and no socks, but I found that no socks made them a bit stinky at the end of the day. So I found at my local grocery store some foot liners for dress shoes and they work perfectly! They are hidden and keep my feet fresh all day!
- Best Uses: Everyday
- Pros: Comfortable, Light Weight, Stylish
Verified Buyer Reviewed by lilpeanutgw from Falls Church, VA on Thursday, August 30, 2012I am a big fan of the barefoot minimalist trend in footwear, and have had my eye on these shoes for a while. I was super excited to get such a great deal on them from STP. With some minor improvements I think these could be great shoes. My main gripe is with the strap that goes over the arch. It is made of very stiff velcro material with scratchy seams that go right over the highest part of the arch. This made the shoes very uncomfortable until I put some moleskin on the underside of the strap. That made the shoes wearable, but the position of the strap is still a problem for me. They might work well on folks with lower arches, but the strap is just in a bad spot for me. My foot slides forward and my toes rub the front of the shoe unless I have the strap really tight. Could just be me... other people seem to love these shoes. They seem to be well made and I love the color (red).
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Cde9522 from Westchester, NY. on Wednesday, August 29, 2012Very comfortable shoes, good for exercise but also good looking enough for casual wear. Only slight complaint is that they are slightly snug for an 81/2 sizing. Still very wearable tho and becoming my go to shoe.
- Best Uses: CASUAL WEAR, Exercising, Walking
- Cons: Just on the snug side
- Pros: Attractive design, Lightweight comfortable, Stylish
Verified Buyer Reviewed by sparks's from NE on Monday, August 27, 2012Great shot. True to size. Great for the trail and the black is sharp enough for work at the office.
