I have bought many sandals from Merrell, and, like this pair, most of them have been very comfortable. I also like the subdued blending of colors in this shoe. It runs true to size and has adjustable straps which I need for my foot size. I would have rated the shoe 5 stars but there are a couple of inside seams that I hope will not cause sore spots if the shoes are worn for several hours of walking with no socks on. However so far, during my short walks, there have been no problems. I will probably buy more Merrell shoes when new styles and colors are available.
