Absolutely love them. Very sturdy build. Comfortable with no pain points. Hope to wear them for a long, long time. Most retailers in Toronto only carry the black & the light beige but it's the dark brown I like and which I had to order from the company directly. Would have preferred to try & buy at a store. But Merrell's staff was very pleasant to deal with and the shoes arrived at promised time. Size was just like how it felt at the stores.
