suffering from "large feet" (51) it has always been difficult to find shoes/trainers that fit. Most shops stop at around 46. growing up it as always a case of accepting what fit and living with minor discomforts. The internet has reduced that need as you can now search more places and Merrel have made it so I don't need to look any further. Honestly it was like strapping a couple of pillows to my feet. This is the third summer in a row I have purchased a new pair. To everyone out there with big feet who has yet to find a comfortable and light training shoe, please treat yourself to a pair of Merrel's. You will not regret it!
