First of all, I hate buying shoes...I hate wearing shoes. If I could get away with being bare foot all day, I would but alas the no-shoe memo has already been buzzing around the work place. It's hard to believe with all the stilleto wearing gals in the building, I would be getting compliments from people - albeit probably just the granola eating, tree-hugging sorts. I'm thrilled with the color - very neutral and versatile. I've paired them with khakis, shorts and casual skirts. I've been told they look like ballerina slippers (by a girl) and ninja butt-kickers (by a guy).
Some reviews have complained about the velcro but I haven't had a problem with mis-alignment or discomfort because of it. They are extremely comfortable although I don't notice a whole lot of difference between these and regular shoes - my body may know on some level but perhaps because I walk around barefoot so often, I don't have to adjust as much (or perhaps there is no difference and I've been duped...cue the dramatic music).
I typically wear a size 9.5 shoe although my feet are closer to 9.25. I went to a store to try these on (they only had bright red and black) before and I was more comfortable in the 9.5 (some have suggested going smaller). They don't fit like a glove but are still pretty secure and I don't feel like I have to worry about my ankles turning as much - a major problem with sneakers higher off the ground - OUCH!!
Overall, I'm thrilled with the shoe and am so happy Merrell and Vibram made the non-5-toe version for us folks with "special" feet.

I bought these as a gift for my Mom and she raves about them. They fit like gloves (no pun intended), so they seem to be true to size. Plus they are really nicely styled. The soles are perfect for all the rainy days in Seattle. She even says she can hardly tell she is wearing shoes! Great quality as always from Merrell. I think we are both very satisfied with the purchase.

I was surprised that I like this shoe as much as I do. I bought it because it was lightweight and flexible but it is very comfortable and cuter than I anticipated. This shoe is a very practical, well-priced shoe for everyday casual wear. I am very pleased with my purchase and will probably order another pair.

This is the type of shoe that many of us look at, contemplate, and then don't buy. If you're really going to run in them, logic tells us to get a "real" running shoe. However, it's so much easier to suspend logic for purchasing for someone else. I bought these for a friend of mine who is traveling light, and running light. She loves them. In fact, she gave them such verbal praise that her roommate, who is traveling to India for six weeks, went out and bought a pair too!

I love these shoes! They are the best shoes ever! Light and beautiful on your feet, yet very supportive. Will buy more of these.

I have never experienced such comfort in a shoe. I have a wide foot and a high arch and finding a shoe that fits is extremely difficult. This shoe is perfect! I loved my first pair so much that I ordered two more in different colors. I can move so much faster and I like the fact that I can feel the ground better, helping to keep my 70-year old balance. I hope Merrell makes more colors so I can order more to match other outfits!

This shoe looks great with casual wear and is great for travel. Very comfortable to teach in all day. It has a "0" heal raise and is extremely light weight. It is just what I was looking for to walk the dogs, travel, or go shopping in. I may purchase a second pair.

I want to love these shoes more than I do. They are light, comfortable, and very cute. The problem is that my third toe is the same length as my second toe, both of which are longer than my big toe. My fourth toe is quite long as well, though shorter than the two proceeding toes. Sadly, these long toes of mine rub against the shoe in an uncomfortable way. I am solidly and eight and a half and if I would go up a size to a nine the shoes would flop around. So, I guess I will ACTUALLY be going barefoot more than wearing these shoes. However, when shoes are a must, I am sure I will grab for these. I just wish the manufactures of barefoot shoes could be a little more accommodating to people with differing toe lengths.

I ordered these in black and this color. There is a world of difference between them. I feel I could wear the black shoes any day without looking too sporty. That is not the case with other colors, they also don;t look as nice. They are very comfortable though.
