I ordered the size eleven in these, which I always do with Merrell, whereas I'm usually a size ten elsewhere. Shoes were ok for length but tight across the instep, so I had to send them back. Easy returns process so no complaint there. Apart from the sizing problem, which happens, the shoes were nice, well made and what I would expect from Merrell. Can't comment on what they were actually like to wear but they looked like a 5* shoe.
