Merrell is the only company I have found to make sandals with any real comfortable arch support. I purchased a pair of Stellablooms last year and they are still in almost new condition, despite the nearly daily use they had last spring, summer and fall. I couldn't wait to wear them this year. I am already wearing these, and would not want to part with them. This pair is very much like the older version, the Savannah, and I still own several pairs of them too. I own over 30 pairs of Merrell shoes, work shoes, sandals, boots and sneakers. Through the years, I have also purchased this brand for my now adult children and family members as gifts, upon request. Everyone always puts these on their wish lists, and it makes my shopping easier. Many, many years ago, I had a pair of suede Merrell shoes, which got stained by salt water. I thought they were ruined, so, I put them in the washing machine, to give it a try. I let them air dry, and insoles were air dried separately, as well. I never thought they would recover, but they were as good as new, I'm not kidding. My only critique would be that you add pastel colors to this line.
