I like the low-to-the-ground feel. I wear it with a custom-made orthotic, so the padding is fine. I ordered up half a size because of the orthotic, but I think my regular 6.5 would have been fine without it. I use it for Combat-- a mixed martial arts inspired aerobics class. I feel my balance is better because of the flatness of the sole. The colors are nice, too!

I was looking for a pair of shoes that would take me on a 5 mile walk and look good (low key stylish) on errands around town. I wear 7.5 W shoes and hurt from a touch of heel pain when I walk.
Imagine my utter delight when I put this pair on and felt like I was walking on air!! They offer very good support, and they are super-light. The bonus is they are pretty on my feet! I would not usually say this about athletic shoes.
These shoes feel like they were crafted in shoe heaven with shoe angel feathers! Well done Merrell!

I am loving these shoes! I spend hours on my feet in surgery and these are the most comfortable shoes I've ever had. Lightweight, very breathable, great colours, good support, great price point and super comfy. I will be ordering another pair.

Rated 5 out of 5 by VivianV These are the best sneakers ever!
I am running for political office and my number one job is to door-knock to meet voters. I have bought at least a dozen pairs of shoes hoping to find the right ones that won't bother my feet after 4 or 5 hours of going house to house (lots of the time actually running from house to house). These are them! Can't wait to get more. There is nice room in the toes and they are light. I find although some shoes feel comfortable on right away, they make my feet hot after a while and I can't stand that. No problem with these; I can't say enough great things about them!

Rated 3 out of 5 by scubalr Fit well
Toe box is plenty big and does not cram toes. Shoes are very light at the expensive of losing some support in the soles. Probably would not use for running but works well for everyday use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by IowaCountryGirl Lovin' these shoes!
Purchased these shoes based upon other reviews mentioning width? I have somewhat wide feet, especially in the front, and these Merrells are perfect for me. I normally take an 8.5-9 medium-width in name-brand running shoes, and went with the 8.5 in these. They are plenty long enough so that I can wear cushioned socks. I've had them for a few weeks now, and can say that they're very lightweight and hold up well to bootcamp style exercises and running. I would say that there could be more arch support, but that's why I usually wear cushioned socks anyway. Hope this helps!

These shoes were comfy from the minute I put them on. They fit true to size. The shoes are super lightweight and perfect for walking around with the dogs or running errands or whatever. Although they are lightweight, there is good support. Not sure they would be right for marathon runners, but for everyday activities and general comfort these are perfect. I like the minimalist shoes for walking and working out and these are close to that but have more structure. They are a cross between a heavy weight runner shoe and the no cushion at all minimal shoe. The best part - no break in time required.

I just recieved these shoes today and I love them! While I haven't yet done any running/walking or hiking in them, my initial impresion is: they are so comfortable, they are lightweight and stylish. The toe bed is not too wide or too pointed like the other pair I ordered (NewBalance) I can picture myself wearing these all day long. Very happy with my purchase. Thanks LLBean!

Rated 4 out of 5 by 4Outside Light and comfortable
I have a hard time finding sneakers that fit right. These are very lightweight and comfortable and don't move around on my heel like many others I've tried. I have a wide foot at the ball and narrow heel, so most that fit up front are too loose in the back.
Now if they'd just make them in a neutral color....
