I've worn these shoes daily for the last two years. They have survived mauling by puppy and the wet & snow from time to time. I've finally got a small hole in the mesh and noticed that the bottoms are almost worn flat... So, time for a new pair! These are by far the most comfortable shoes I've ever worn. I have several pairs of the lovely Merrell sandals for summer wear and I've worn them hiking many times. (Both the shoes & the sandals!) I noticed a friend was wearing the exact same shoes last weekend too, so obviously I'm not alone in my Merrell love. Thanks for making such great shoes. Keep up the great work! I'm a fan for life.
