I have three pairs of the Merrell Encore Breeze shoes, and they're a breeze! They're extremely comfortable and required no break-ins. When I saw this MJ I thought they would be as comfortable so I bought a pair for a little kick of style. Big mistake! This shoe has the same footbed as the Breeze but the sole is much thinner and the toe area is higher so it offers no support whatsoever. It actually hurts! The straps are itchy and the open ends rub against the back of my heels. For the price and the ability of being able to wear only once, this is the most expensive pair of shoes I've ever bought!
However, I applaude the vendor (Shoeflake). They're extremly fast in shipping. I placed the order on Friday 7/10 and received the shoes Monday 7/13. I will buy from this vendor again, just different shoes.
