Lately I'd had bad luck with shoes, in fact I had no shoes for every day wear except a very, very old pair of Merrell's that were suitable for bush trails but definitely not grocery stores, art clubs and civic centers. They were/are still serviceable but pretty beat up now after 9 years of hard trekking. Thinking to support my local economy I went to the local stores that carried shoes and made the mistake of buying a pair I thought would be good, serviceable shoes for every day "town" wear. I couldn't have been more wrong. Within hours, this brand name shoe was causing me serious foot pain. In desperation I went online to see if I could purchase some Merrells because they'd never let me down. You see I live in a small city surrounded by thousands of acres of wilderness and 2 1/2 hours from any major shopping center. I googled Merrell and found this website. I spent the next several hours drooling over all their shoes. Finally I settled on this lovely serviceable Jungle Moc, even though I wasn't sure ordering shoes online would result in a good fit, but the Merrell return policy made my decision easier. The shoe is classy enough for any occasion that I would have cause to partake in, is very, very comfortable and I love how easy it is to get on. We seniors appreciate "ease" of use. The service from Merrell's was excellent and my shoes were received in a very timely fashion. My feet have not been this happy in ages. I highly recommend this shoe.
