First off, i am a loyal Merrell fan cause i don't think that there are better sporty footwear then them... believe me that both my husband and i went through many shoes and sandals! So I just received this sandals and wore them already for a while... and i think they are the most comfortable pair of sandals i ever had so far!! Don't want to take them off!! LOL!! Its like wearing your home slippers! The SIlver Birch are much prettier in «person» then on the website, they are really gorgeous for sporty sandals! And i have to say that the shipping time is amazing! From the moment i ordered online to the time i received them, it took exactly ONE week! SO good job Merrell!
