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 am not a huge fan of barefoot technology, but needed travel and walking shoes for exrtra-wide feet. They put full insoles in, which improves the amount of support without turning it into a standard shoe. Perfect balance between two worlds if that is what you want.
These shoes seem well-made, very comfortable, good for walking on grass without additional insoles, fine for hours of walking with insoles (for me personally), and absolutely awesome for trans-Pacific air travel and cross-country road-tripping.
I imagine this width will fit too wide for narrow feet, but they are fine for wider ones.
