Awesome surface gripper & hugs my feet well! - by , Jul 09, 2019
5/ 5 Stars
I purchased the Choprock Shandal (blue smoke) to wear while hiking in dry & wet terrain. I live at the beach and walk my dog daily in sand and surf. Love this shoe/sandal! I used to have to choose between hiking boots or water shoes and now have best of both worlds. It's sturdy & grips the ground extremely well .. perfect if you have a high energy dog like mine (Belgian Malinois) and must wear lace up shoes. And love the lace tightener as opposed to traditional ties! Another awesome use for these shoes: I wore these shoes last weekend to a canine dock diving competition and they were awesome on the wet dock; gripped the stairs wonderfully! Excess water drains out very well & never felt that "squishy" feeling or that my foot was sliding in shoe. Very impressed. Also, I wore them while stand up paddleboarding over July 4th weekend …I'm a novice and these shoes gave me confidence to stay upright and balanced on the board. "Sizing" runs slightly larger …. for example, I'm a long time Merrell customer and wear size 9M in MOAB hiking boots, ended up with 8 1/2M in the Shandal. "Fast Drying" - I put wet shoes on top of dryer (on a towel) overnite & they were ready to go in the morning. Lastly - will be wearing these shoes in a 4 mile long canine obstacle course competition in November; with lots of water & mud …. will let you know how they do!

Too large but comfortable - by , Jun 21, 2019

Like all of my Merrells, these are great bit surprisingly 1/2 size bigger than the Merrells I normally wear.

Too big but I really want to like them - by , Jun 10, 2019
3/ 5 Stars
I just got these shoes after lots of research on what would be the best shoes for when I go on a 2 week Grand Canyon river trip this summer. I need something that allows me to hike in wet conditions, sandy beaches, rocky areas, and that has some protection against sun, dropping heavy things, and rocks. Sadly, I'm disappointed to report that even though I ordered a couple sizes smaller than what I usually wear, these shoes are still too big. I might keep them anyway because (1) I already ordered the smallest size these come in, (2) I really need some river shoes, and (3) maybe I can wear socks or something that will make them fit better.

Hot. - by , Jun 07, 2019
2/ 5 Stars
Despite the openings, even on relatively cool days (low 70's) my feet were as hot as if they were in full sneakers. I wore them only a short while, as they arrived (new, from Merrell, not a secondary site) with obvious defects to 2 of the vent holes on the left shoe. When they were so hot, the decision was clear to return them.

a bit hot for wearing on a warm spring day - by , Apr 24, 2019
4/ 5 Stars
I liked the Choprock Shandal and it did fit me perfectly, but when I wore them I noticed that my feet got hot inside the shoes. This was a bit uncomfortable and it was not a hot day outside. It is still spring and only in the 70s here in northern California. The shandals were comfortable otherwise, but the heat effect was a bit of a downer. Too bad there wasn't a stream nearby where I could dip my feet in some cool waters! Despite feeling a bit hot, I was comfortable wearing these shoe/sandals hence the 4 stars. When I took them off I also noticed that the insole came out with my foot. It was easy enough to put back in however, so no big deal. These are a good comfy pair of shandals, just a bit warm. I won't wear them on a hot summer day. But otherwise they are fine.

They don't dry as quickly as advertised. - by , Apr 17, 2019
4/ 5 Stars
I bought these mainly for kayaking since I needed something sturdier than the water shoes I've been wearing. They take river rocks well and are easy to remove and put back on when wet. I've used them at the beach, too. Sand gets in through the draining holes, but after all, it is the beach. They flush out with a quick dip in the water.
