Great shoes, my second pair. I hiked with them near Moab this last week and won't go back to my old, heavy hiking boots. Great on slick rock and water crossings. I also like the looks. Keep up the good work.

Walking and hiking. It is great for travel as they don't look as "dorky" as white sneakers.

I love barefoot. I have longer toes than some people and have to order a half size larger. They fit perfectly. I have the same problem with sketchers brand, but can't get them in 10.5. But after wearing Merrrells who needs them! I was skeptical at first. I'm 64, overweight, and have some knee issues and thought I would need thicker soles. I was wrong, these are very comfortable and I can walk with no discomfort!! Thank you Merrell!

I just love them. I tried them on a trail run this morning too and so far so good. Can you make a winter trail running model?

Lightweight, comfortable and breathable. Makes it easy to walk or hike long days without feeling pain. The colors are awesome as well! Would definitely buy again!

This shoe is perfect for me--super light weight,decent arch support, and a sole that cushions while still allowing my feet to feel what's under them. I have worn them on long days of walking as a tourist in cities and towns, on well tended trails, and throughout any typical day as I do errands, take walks, cook, and am otherwise on my feet. My feet never feel particularly tired or sore. I have worn them nearly constantly in warm weather for the past 2 years. I did initially try a very similar Merrill barefoot shoe which wasn't as good a fit for me. This one felt just right as soon as I put it on. It helps to be in a local retail setting, since not all lasts are identical.
