Rated 2 out of 5 by webistrator Overpriced for what it isn't
I'm a sockless sandal wearer, and so I expect some structure and substance in a sandal. For years I bought footwear in Europe where sandals are more common than shoes. This Merrell sandal, while looking substantial, isn't worth the $100 LLBean gets for it. Its main shortcoming is a lack of arch support that should provide cushioning and also position the sandal such that the straps don't chafe the sides of the feet. As it is, the sandal feels more like a flip-flop, and the straps bite into the sides of the feet.
All in all, not worth the money.

FIT: is good, I usually were 9 1/2, but went with 10. PERFORMANCE: Went for a 4 mile walk on a unpaved trail and the back of my heels had skin rubbed off.
APPERANCE: Love the look.

Rated 5 out of 5 by geraniumjack Just what I hoped for.
Comfortable right out of the box. No break in necessary. Both casual and dressy. I opted for a half size larger and was pleased with the fit.

I wanted a pair of sturdy sandals that you could put on first thing in the morning and wear all day and which would be suitable for a variety of activities. I found them in the Merrell Traveler Fisherman Sandals. I can wear them lounging around the house, or running errands. They fit perfectly. The big toe is protected, as well as the heel. The flexible sole is molded to provide extra grip so you feel more sure-footed. The tread is ribbed for a good grip on wet surfaces. They are light weight, but provide firm support.
I would have given the sandals five stars if Velcro straps were used, as the buckle is a bit old-fashioned and not always convenient when bending over.
Overall, highly recommended

I bought these sandals for my very particular husband. He LOVES them! One of his comments was that he felt like he was walking on clouds in them! I would definitely recommend them to family and friends. The sizing is right on target. Thanks, LL Bean!

Great look, most comfortable sandals I've ever had.I've only had them a few weeks but if there as durable as I've been accustomed to from any merchandise from LL Bean then these sandals are not a home run they are a "GRAND SLAM." I love LL Bean!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Elila Very nice style.
You should keep the "buckle", because, occasionally, velcro tabs
will separate from a shoe and if and when you TRY to re-glue the tab back on, it never really "holds" adequately enough. I like the style of the closed-type toe. But it is a bit pricey.

These sandals are well made, fit nicely, and look very classy. The odor-eating soles work very well. The sandals are very comfortable and I can wear them all day without stress. The only change I would make is to use velcro fasteners instead of buckle fasteners. The buckles are hard to get at unless you are more limber than I am. However, these sandals are an excellent product and I heartily recommend them.
