Flat, comfortable and quality made shoes
on 11 September 2013
As a runner I am familiar with Merrell and currently use a pair of their trail shoes as my main training footwear. I have always been impressed with the quality and substance of Merrell products & I am frankly surprised at some of the 'quality' comments made by other reviewers, although clearly some of them state their haven't even wore the shoes - yet still they review them!!! I bought these shoes because they are similiar in design to the 'Minimalist' running shoes which Merrell produce and thus they have a very thin sole to encourage the user to walk/run more 'naturally'. As a 'natural' runner I have been extremely impressed by Merrell and these shoes have not disappointed. Fashionably crafted, they are very comfortable, and feel more like slippers than outdoor wear. The only issue I would warn you about is that the fore-heel area is sculptured out and made of a non-leather fabric would could pose an issue if you wore then on a very wet day? That apart I would heartily recommend these shoes.
