Very light weight, extremely comfortable, and love the colors. Wish I would have purchased another pair! The only drawback is that I must actually be a 7.75. I have purchased many Merrell shoes and found that the ones that were dyed a color usually ran a little smaller (don't know if this had anything to do with dye). This time, I ordered the 8 instead since I ordered the berry color and they are a tad loose, but I think the 7.5 would have been a tad tight.
