To say that this will be sturdy in time is premature, but I've owned numerous Merrell products, so I'm confident. As well, it's apparent in the build and finish that their quality is still there.
The footbed is smaller than a lot of flips, but there's no sacrifice…just a visual difference. There is a size factor though and it's consistent with other opinions…order a size larger. I almost always wear a 10, but an 11 in these was the best choice.
In re: to comfort and support, this deserve a "5," which isn't common in flips.
