Very narrow

Reviewed by RB from CA on Sunday, June 21, 2015
These are just about the ugliest Merrell shoes I've ever tried. The brown, plus the purple, and then the striped purple and white laces just make them hideous. However, they are also very small and narrow. I got my usual 10.5 size and they squeezed my little toes off. They are cut very low on the sides, making it easy for gravel or tiny rocks to fall in. They are almost minimalist hikers, as the soles are kind of hard and thin under the toe area, but very nicely solid and substantial under the heel. They have a lot of padding but it's on the sides of the shoe, the purpose of which I cannot understand. They were comfortable enough, just very narrow and small, but were long enough.
