I was very surprised and very pleased with my first Ahnu purchase. I have several Merrell shoes, including their minimalist running shoes and didn't expect the results.
I am a sometimes 7.5, sometimes 8, always 38 (euro) foot. I bought the 7.5 in the Ahnu and at first thought it might be a little tight, but after a couple of days realized it was perfect. I've had them over a month and they are my new go-to shoe.
Appropriate for casual work and perfect for mommy-duties and errands. I've worn them all day for shopping, work, etc. and had no problem with the support they give (keep in mind, I'm a barefoot girl at heart).
They were also wonderful to throw in my carry-on for a work trip to have casual (read: non-heels) shoes without taking up much space. Another plus.
I bought the plum and when I came back today to buy another color I figured I'd wow you strangers with a very non-pithy review on why this shoe was worth $90ish. The only time I spend that much on shoes is for running (shoulda bought stock in Asics) and boots that I think will last me many seasons. I'm the queen of discounted shoes and pride myself in finding deals and never spending more than $40 (which includes some danskos and soffts). These are my new dirty secret to my frugal shoe habit.
I bought mine at a brick-and-mortar retailer, which had in stock black (leather) and pewter (suede), so I got the chance to try on a couple of sizes before buying. What I found was a tad interesting-- the black in my true size (9) were too big. It didn't FEEL patently too big in the classic way until I tried on a half size down, it was just weird: a little floppy, very bad toe cleavage, awkward-fitting all around. The half size down fit like a dream. Then, however, I tried on the pewter in the same half size down. It was significantly snugger and the straps cut into the tops of my feet. The length of it felt about the same, but think the basic reason for the disparity was the material, which was stiffer and had less give. Also, the bottoms of the straps on the leather pair were ridiculously soft and smooth; the bottoms of the straps on the suede pair were much rougher, less stretchy, and more uncomfortable overall. Ergo, to get a comfortable fit I think I might have needed to get my regular size in the suede. Therefore overall I'd recommend sizing down a half size if you're getting a leather pair, but buying your normal size if you're getting a suede pair-- especially if you have a high instep like I do.
That said, once I figured out the sizing, everything else about this shoe is fantastic. The only word of warning I'd have is about toe cleavage: in the correct-fitting pair, there is still a minimal amount of it. Nothing extreme, but if any amount of toe cleavage bugs you, I'd stay away. Aside from that, I'd recommend these flats wholeheartedly. The price is a little steep, but they're so ridiculously comfortable and cute that I think they're worth it. I'd DEFINITELY buy at least another pair or two if they weren't so spendy!
UPDATE 5/13: I just wanted to add that, with a coupon, I did end up purchasing a second pair, in silver sage. Since I was a bit confused and unsure about the color, thought I'd post specifically about it. Here on Amazon, as well on some other sites, it looks like a neutral beige sort of color, and mostly definitely leather. But on a different set of sites, it looks more green than beige, and more on the suede side. Given that I didn't like the feel of the suede pair I tried on, I was a bit nervous but went for it, hoping for leather/beige over suede/green tinge. Glad to say, they ARE leather, and while I think they're a bit more grey/taupe than the photos here on Amazon represent, and can have greenish undertones in certain lighting, as a whole the green isn't overwhelming or too noticeable. They are a very good neutral and seem like they'll go well with almost anything.
