shoes sent out by this seller were totally different than the ones intially put in photo, i returned item, they now have my money, and the shoes, the original photo had the proper sticky soles, the pair they sent had the awfull checked sole, which is uncomfortable, and wears out much quicker than the original merrell sticky sole. i know this as i have had both types. they changed the photo after i returned them, nice trader, eh! they now have my money and the shoes i bought for xmas. merry xmas to you.
