As an ER resident physician, I've worn these shoes every day, six days a week for 10+ hours a day, and flat out, they are still as great one year later as they were the day I bought them. I'm about to order my second pair only because the I got some seriously gross stuff on them at this point and it's just time to start fresh. They actually clean really easily and I've hit them with bleach wipes quite frequently with no ill effects. I've had clogs and crocs in the past, and these are way better. And plus, I've always liked wearing something different than everyone else in the hospital. Strong work Merrell.

I am a landscape photographer by hobby, as a landscape photographer I wasted a lot of money buying shoes not meant for rough terrains, I used casual shoes, sports shoes, namely ( Lacoste, Nike) and all of them didn't last long. The last casual shoes I used when I went to blue mountains to photograph sunset was beaten up really bad, I don't want to use it again coz it was soiled, wet, and stinks so bad I just wanna throw it out. Then I saw this guy next to me photographing the same sunset wearing the proterra sport and ask him what shoes he's wearing and too make my story short, I bought one and i will never wear casual and sports shoes again when I'm out taking photos of nature. So I think I'm going to purchase one again soon, and oh! I bought one for my wife as we'll the proterra Vim and she like it so much she wear it to sleep... No just joking! :) Merrell keep up the good work cheers!.

Excellent shoe for all surfaces. The inverted cleat system is something I hope to see in future Merrell shoes. Very comfortable to where around town, trails, and off the concrete tee-pads on the disc golf course.

I love this shoe! Already have Merrell Barefoot running shoes for working out and love those, and wanted something close to that with the same benefits but without such a low profile for work. I'm currently a nursing assistant working towards becoming a PA and am on my feet 12hrs a day; these shoes have been a godsend. I'm very fit and have never really had back problems or significant joint issues, but often after work wearing my old tennis shoes my feet would be pretty sore, and sometimes I'd get minor pain in my lower back if standing in one place for too long - neither of those things occur now. My feet feel great after work, and I even notice while walking that my posture seems to have improved and my gait feels more natural. Incidentally, I wear a half size smaller in these shoes than I do in most other shoes, so they run a little large for me.
