Shoe Size: Felt true to size Shoe Width: Felt true to width Bought these to hike in and wanted a cooler shoe so I opted for the mesh construction. They fit well and were comfortable from the first time I wore them. They fit and are comfortable with or without socks. They provide great traction while hiking in sandy or rocky trail conditions and support well. I would buy these again!
Wears this shoe: Hiking and general running around.
These are, for me, just like all Merrels December 07, 2011

Shoe Size: Felt half size smaller than marked Shoe Width: Felt narrower than marked I've had 2 other Merrells and these are the same - the issues and the "goods".Size - about 1/2 size too small in length and width - allow for this.Comfort - takes some breaking, but once there, it's a solid, supportive, trail hiking shoe. If I want a street walker built just for cushion and comfort, I would go to another brand. BUT for on the trail in AZ long hikes, etc. these are the best IMHO. In the Midwest, I would want something a little more water repelling.
