Very comfortable and durable casual shoe
on 18 January 2014
A very comfortable shoe for everyday use indeed. I've been wearing the Merrell Trail Gloves for casual wear as well as running for the last five years or so and they have lasted extremely well but are now getting a little frayed and tatty. Purchased these to replace them in day to day wear and I'm very pleased. The fit is similar with ample room for my toes and a generally snug but breathable fit.
They have been worn with and without socks and are very comfortable either way, got drenched last week cycling to work but no areas rubbed and were dry by the time I left for home. Unlike the trail glove these shoes have an elasticated heal which is perfect for slipping them on and off without relying the laces; I have yet to experience them slipping off at all and they don't move off when worn
6 month update: still in very good condition, been muddied, washed and worn in all Scottish terrain but still the soles show no sign of debonding, the material shows little more than the expected inside scuffing and they are as comfortable as ever.
Would definitely buy these again (although my last merrell shoes lasted 5 years so unlikely to be soon!)
