I've had trouble for YEARS trying to find a good athletic shoe that fits my wide toes and narrow heels well! This is especially important after my foot surgery. I can't believe I've FINALLY found one!!! I borrowed a pair from my very tall granddaughter while visiting her family out of state to go on a day mountain-hike. I actually thought I'd be miserable and hold everyone up due to foot pain/blisters/problems. WAS I EVER SURPRISED!!! I normally take a womens size 9 in athletic shoes. The borrowed pair were womens 10s. They didn't slip on my heels at ALL! I asked my husband for a pair for my upcoming birthday.These shoes are EPIC!! (very functional, flexible, have the great footbed support for which Merrell is known,and are actually attractive!!!) I think I've died and gone to Heaven! THANK YOU!
