The Encore Breeze 4 does not provide same level of arch support. - by , Oct 15, 2020
2/ 5 Stars
I recently purchased a pair of navy Encore Breeze 4 shoes. I have been wearing this style of Merrell shoes for several years and they always provided wonderful arch support which made them super comfortable to wear all day. Unfortunately, that was not the case with the newest version I just purchased. The arch support was weak and felt sloppy. Sad to say I probably won’t buy these again.

I have trouble finding shoes that are comfortable and I love Merrells my shoes - by , Oct 12, 2020
5/ 5 Stars
I have trouble finding shoes that are comfortable. I have a narrow foot and a high arch. I wear sandals most of the year, but when winter comes, I need a closed shoe. I discovered Merrell's ICE suede shoe about ten years ago, and I wear them all winter. The support is great, and the fit perfect -- it's like my foot is being hugged. The inner "fur" is a it ragged at the back edge, but otherwise the shoe is as good as when I bought it. When I was raving about my Merrell ICE shoes my daughter-in-law said, "Didn't you know -- Merrells are the best shoes there are!" I always have to try shoes on to make sure they fit, so I decided to go back to my stand-by, Merrell when Covid has made in-store fitting impossible. I decided this fall to try a mid-season, lightweight shoe. I ordered the Encore Breeze Moc, but it was very hard to get it on because my arch is so high. So I did the easy return and ordered the Encore Breeze 4 in two sizes, 7.5 and 8. My size for most of my life has been 7.5 but as I've aged, my foot has spread. The size 7.5 was a bit too snug (socked toes touching the front of the shoe inside) but the size 8 fits perfectly. I love these shoes ! They are simply styled, very light, but offer good support. When my ICE shoes wear out I'll order them again. It might take ten more years, so please, Merrell, stay in business that long!

1 STAR AT MOST....Not the same shoe I have ordered for at least 10+ years. MAJOR DISAPPOINTMENT - by , Oct 09, 2020
1/ 5 Stars
Obviously the shoe has been redesigned....lower heal, cheap mesh on inside and around the foot, one shoe felt extremely crooked, uncomfortable, clunky, not the GREAT SHOE it has been. I am at a loss because I wore this shoe in every color, every day forever. I just donated my older pairs, slightly stretched out, waited for the two new replacement pairs - black & blue, and I only have one pair left. The new pairs were so POOR, I had to send them back. Where in the world were these made. This is not your trusted brand. Something went terribly wrong with your product. Shame!

Material Changed in 2020 and is not sturdy - by , Oct 09, 2020
2/ 5 Stars
I have been wearing Encore Breeze for 15+ years and buy a new pair every year - not because they wear out but I wear them so much they get dingy/dirty looking. It's the shoe I go to 90% of the time for everything and up until this year I have loved these shoes. This year the material changed and it's not sturdy. I wear these without socks and do lots of walking of dogs and I have worn a hole in the top side material in 6 months. Also the material "collapses" so it's wrinkled looking. I have attached a picture (and I keep my toe nails trimmed and short!). Really bummed that this shoe has changed, it was my staple and I loved this shoe. But due to this material change I won't buy it again.

Great shoes, comfortable and stylish - by , Oct 06, 2020
5/ 5 Stars
These are such comfortable shoes!! I had a pink pair years ago that I wore for MANY years. I took these out of the box, put them on, and wore them all- comfortably. They feel more like slippers but have better support. I just love them!

These shoes are perfect for anyone who is experiencing low back pain, achy knees or ankles. The support they give is amazing! I love them because they are comfortable, look great (I bought the light blue) and I can walk all day in them and my pain is gone.

Squeaky soles drove me nuts - by , Sep 16, 2020
1/ 5 Stars
Shipment arrived on time, I opened the box and tried 'em on for a test walk around the house. It sounded like I was walking on crickets! Continuous creak-squeak creak-squeak from both shoes. I have hardwood and tile floors, so maybe that was the problem. The shoe was comfortable, and I could wear a lightweight sock on my size 9 feet, no problem. A heavy-weight sock would not have fit. Sleek profile and navy color were both very nice. however, I boxed 'em back up and they are getting returned to Merrell. Too bad.
