I sued to wear Jungle Mocs for many years, until one year when Merrell discontinued them.... I see now that they have returned. It was then that I tried the slides. I love all of your slides because they fit so well and are really comfortable. Now that I live in Hawaii and most family request that you "park your shoes at the door", the slides are really wonderful because they are easy to just kick off when one need to do so. Once I started wearing Merrell's, I stopped buying other brands... except for that one time when I bought ANOTHER BRAND because things were really tight that month. Well, THOSE shoes offered absolutely NO support for my foot and when I slipped off a curb, I strained something in the arch on the bottom of my foot. I was on crutches for 8 weeks waiting for it to heal. And once healed, I immediately returned to buying Merrell's. I realized then that you get what you pay for. It's true that some stores carry a limited number of styles here in Honolulu, but none seem to ever carry the styles or colors I like. It's expensive to buy them here because I have to pay all the shipping costs... as it is, I am only buying when you have sales (as with the current one) or if I really, really, really need to buy because I completely wore out the shoe. Still, because I believe in your products and love your customer service, I don't hesitate to recommend your shoes to my friends and co-workers here in Honolulu. MAHALO NUI LOA for providing such great shoes!
