Our daughter has a lot of trouble finding shoes that stay on well and are comfortable. She absolutely loves these sneakers so we are coming back to buy the next size up. The plastic part that holds the lace tight does tend to loosen as she wears them, but it doesn't seem to affect the comfort and I think it could easily be replaced if it needs to. Definitely recommend these!

My daughter had another pair of these and was sad when she outgrew them - so we ordered the next size! These Trail shoes are good for other purposes than the trail, they are sturdy enough on the trail but flexible enough to use them as tennis/gym shoes. She loves the easy pull string lacing system, which gets her in and out quickly.

I bought these for my 10 yr old. She broke the plastic tab on the laces in the first couple of weeks! Very frustrating. The shoes themselves are nice and very comfortable. It's too bad that they are ruined by such cheap laces.

I bought this shoe for my daughter who loves to run. She broke the cord lock (that little plastic widget that they feature in place of lacing the shoe) in record time this time: 3 weeks. I don't know who's in charge of these cheap things, but someone needs to inform the folks at Merrell (maybe me?) that there's a problem here. This isn't the first time this has happened.
