Why change a very good thing. :-(
September 26, 2016
I have owned many pair of Merrell sandals over the years and have always loved them until now. This style, in my opinion, does not live up to the quality, comfort, and support that Merrell fans have come to expect. I have the older version of this sandal and they lasted appx. 3 years and still look half way decent. Merrill changed this style slightly by making it with a different footbed; more of a comfort foam style rather than the fitted molded type of the earlier version. The foam footbed flattened after a few wears which made the shoe fit differently. It is definitely not as comfortable; not as much support. I bought these at the beginning of the summer and sadly will not wear them another season. They look awful...very worn and old looking and it's mostly due to the footbed. I'm still a Merrell fan, but not a fan of ones with this foot bed.
