Exactly what I needed

My Tevas had developed minor leaks that kept the bottom of my socks wet all day. Sigh. I ordered the Merrells though I've never worn that brand, attracted by the waterproof feature. Opened the box, put them on, and have hardly had them off since. They are indeed waterproof (or as much as shoes can be) though heavier than I expected. The soles are stiffer as well—more like a boot than a sneaker. Yet they are very comfortable. If your foot is very wide, they probably would not work for you (my foot is medium—a friend with a wide foot tried them on and said that they pinched slightly at the toes. On the other hand, they were only a couple of days old at that point). Bottom line: I would order Merrells again, as I do Tevas and Keens without concern for fit, and these will get a hearty workout. They are extremely well made and will last.
