The shoes came pretty promptly. The color is true to the photos online. If you didn't notice though, where the back strap is, the material is like a nude stretchy fabric that doesn't quite match the gray cutouts on the top. It doesn't bother me but just FYI. I was so disappointed when the tops of my toes hit the front end of the shoe. I had to basically keep my toes scrunched up the whole time.
So I tried to wear them in the river once to see if they'd stretch out or if I could learn to live with the tight toes, but it just wasn't going to work out. I purchased a size 6 to compare the two in fit and comfort. When the new shoes came, they were TOO BIG!!! The size difference between the 5.5 and the 6 looked to me like way more than half a size. I looked up a new shoelace pattern to tie them tighter and that helped enough to keep them on. I wish the back straps actually did more to that end, but they honestly seem to be mostly decorative.
I've worn my shoes on two kayak trips so far and they have worked out great. They don't dry miraculously fast or anything, but they are comfortable and stay on my feet. I'm looking forward to wearing them on a hiking + paddling trip, to see how they do then. But for now, they are definitely my go-to shoes for river field trips!
P.S. I also bought the Keens Venice H2 (in a size 6) and I love them. It remains to be seen which of the two I end up gravitating to over time.
However, I am very dissatisfied with this pair of shoes. Although they fit well and are very comfortable, there are holes in the soles that allow water to soak your feet when you walk on concrete in a slight drizzle. I just spent the entire day teaching with water-soaked socks and wet cold feet. When I got home I immediately checked the description of the shoes. The shoes have waterproof uppers. Nothing is mentioned about the not-at-all waterproof soles. I don't know why it matters if the upper part of the shoes stays dry if the soles let water flood in. I already owned a pair of Merrell's river shoes to use in the river we live near. I guess I now own 2 pairs for the few times I wade in the river. I'm not at all happy that these shoes were not described accurately on this page and I'm now stuck with an expensive pair of useless shoes.

I've had other barefoot merrells and this particular model is a very awkward fit. Should have returned them. Pricey fail on this order.Published 13 months ago by d williams

Very comfortable and cool. (Literally cool coz it has vent underneath the shoes.) They actually look better when you wear them. Read morePublished 19 months ago by Sora Min
I like them... just a little big. I normally wear 7.5 and it's just a little off. I think 7 would have been too tight/small.Published 20 months ago by Momma G
