The fabric on the shoe is too stiff compared to the ones I bought in the past. When I walk and they bend they pinch the top of my foot. I am disappointed. My "ex" Merrells of the same style felt like gloves. Cheaper products, more money. I will try wash them to soften up the fabric. Also the top used to fit me well on my last pair and these have baggier tops. Disappointed in Alberta.
