I actually use these to work in. I'm a
nurse and on my feet all day. I suffer from tendonitis in my
achilles and use heel cups in my other tennis shoes. With
these Merrells, I do not need to use them!! They feel great
and my feet do not hurt at the end of a long day. I would
recommend them to anyone!
I walk just about everyday for and hour. The best thing is I
do not have any problems at all wearing and walking. They
were comfortable right out of box. They are by far I think
the most comfortable sneaker I have owned and I really like
the look. More hiking boot type then the sneaker look. I
would highly recommend it and I have to friends.
I bought this shoe for a European vacation. I knew I'd be
doing a lot of walking and needed something super
comfortable. I was not disappointed. I walked miles in these
shoes including along cobblestone streets, around town and
light hiking through woods and up rocky hills. I have no
complaints. My only complaint is that they run small. I
eventually had to get them a full size larger than I
normally wear. I HIGHLY recommend this shoe.
I had purchased the identical shoe about a year ago and
because they had become my "very most favorite" shoes, I had
worn them long and hard. I had to order a new pair as a
result. These shoes are so comfortable, give great support,
and have enough stretch that my bunion is not in pain. I
have found them to be a good shoe for summer with enough
leather strips to give the shoe stability, yet cool on hot
days. Well worth the money!
I love the looks of this shoe, but the first pair felt too
short (I normally wear an 8 med.) so my older sister bought
the shoes from me and I ordered them in an 8 1/2, only to
find out that they also felt too short and the left shoe
rubbed below my big toe. I tried to put tape on the spot and
see if I could "break them in", and I also loosened up the
laces as much as I could and still keep them on my feet, but
after wearing them about 8 times they still were
uncomfortable. so I gave the shoes to my younger sister who
wears a 7 1/2 and they fit her perfectly!
My last walking shoes caused me to lose two toe nails, my
other big toe is purple, I still might lose it. I thought I
died and went to heaven when I bought these shoes. No break
in period at all I can walk the mall for hours in these with
no problem. They are so cute & very different than the
regular white athletic shoes, that I don't like. I had to
buy them a whole size bigger, because I wear orthotics.
Right now I am looking at other Merrell shoes, because
they're the ticket to comfort, and that is so important. Get
them, you won't be sorry, believe me.
