About a year ago I bought a pair of Merrell Passports from L.L. Bean. In my 68 years I have rarely had a more comfortable pair of shoes. One of my footwear frustrations has been the difficulty of finding an identical pair to replace a loved pair of shoes, so though my Merrells were not nearly to worn out, I returned last month to L. L. Bean in Lebanon, NH, and asked for another pair. "We no longer carry them," I was told. So, I went online and found tnese Merrell World Legends. They were made on the identical last to the Passports, and have the same wonderful ruggedness and excellent leather and gore. Now, I have my (almost) identical shoes, and am at peace! I urge Merrell to keep this last alive. It is a gem.
