Long time fan of Merrell products and had several heavy buying sessions in the San Francisco store. The on-line store though is great as well, deliveries and returns are dealt with quickly and easily so thumbs up there. Although the UK product line is limited compared to the US and is starting to stock less of the large sizes (I'm a 13), perhaps some kind of special order system as Merrell US won't let us order from them? In addition to my various Merrell hiking boots\shoes I own a pair of these in black that I use for work and the very similar Life Excursion Leather Glove (discontinued) in brown that are for all other time. I absolutely love the barefoot products, after suffering for a series of issues with my knees caused by hamstring issues, these shoes have really helped by improving my posture and gait. They are super comfy to wear far more than the thin sole would have you believe although if you don't walk barefoot anywhere they take some time to get used to, I've always mooched around the house and garden barefoot so was an easy transition. Just waiting for the new trail glove 2's to go on sale at some point and I'll snap those up as well for hiking to supplement my Mixmasters. Keep up the good work guys!!
