I LOVE Merrell shoes for the style and, most importantly, the comfort. But I have found sizing to be erratic depending on the shoe so I ordered my usual size in the two colors and one size down in a solid color so I could try them on side by side. The two colors is definitely cute and classy, and I was glad it was the one that fit. The size is ever so slightly a bit large, but I wear a thin shoe insert for my arch and that makes it fit perfectly. It also fits comfortably with thicker socks, and since I plan to wear it in the Seattle winter, it will be perfect. I am glad to see that Merrell now has free exchanges and a flat return postage cost. I can't find Merrell's that I want in nearby retails stores and decided to check on-line. It definitely makes it worth the effort now to order online and get what I want - a good pair of Merrell shoes!
