I love the brand and I will continue to but them...but not this style.

This is at least the tenth pair of Merrells I have bought. I love the brand and I will continue to but them...but not this style.
Merrell Rant are really, really, narrow shoes.
You may be thinking...my Intercepts took a bit of breaking in but they were fine after a while...but so did I and they did, but these wont.
These are very narrow shoes indeed.
I am an 8 in every pair of Merrells I have bought. I ordered an 8 in Merrell Rant, but couldn't fit my feet in them.
I sent them back in favour of an 8.5, but I am still not happy with the half-size up. Again, too narrow, and now they're feeling a bit long.
If I order a 9 they'll probably be the right width, but will feel like clown shoes on me.
So, if you're reading this and have long thin feet rather than my fashionable short fat ones, crack on, buy them, you'll love them. They look like they'll last, they're good looking daps and have a comfy sole - as you'd expect.
They're so nice, in fact, that I'm still considering keeping these in the hope that they wont hurt my feet anymore...but common sense will-out and the 8.5's will be going back too.
