Every woman should own a pair of merrell chase cycling heels. This is my second pair. I bought a pair of MJs previously and have put miles on them. They wore very well. I had the heels replaced when they started wearing down. Result was acceptable, but I wanted to replace them. I walk and use public transit everyday to go to work. And these heels are both comfortable and smart looking. They work well with pants or a skirt. When I put my foot in the shoe, I'm in heaven!
