5.0 out of 5 stars I love them and so does the public!, May 29, 2012
I bought these in the orange and I'm not exaggerating when I say I've never gotten so many compliments on any clothing item I've ever worn.
Yes, they are adorable and Merrell has been brilliant like Apple was with the early iPods in being bold and fun with colors.

I have a couple of pairs of the Pace Gloves. I do most of my running in a more traditional shoe but one at the lightest end of the spectrum, Mizuno Wave Riders. I found the Pace Gloves just a little too smooshy for my running since I am not trying to transition to anything more minimal. My intention was to wear them casually but also for the large amount of walking I do in my frequent travels. They are so compact and light I figured on trips I could do a little running in them to spare me from packing yet another pair of shoes, yet stay reasonably in shape. Aren't shoes always the dilemma when traveling light for us girls? These are like packing a pair of slippers.

When I got this new model, I immediately felt the difference from the albeit modest amount of additional support. With a shoe this light to begin with, it doesn't take much to make a difference. Reading other reviews of this product on other sites, it seems to be a love or hate thing, so I think it just has to do with how one's foot works with the firmer arch support. For me it was love at first insertion. They don't tax my shins and calves as much as the Pace Glove did on some all-day walking in Europe. I also mix them into my running routine now and then. It makes my legs feel stronger when I go back to the Mizunos. I just wore them on a 12 hour flight to Beijing where I am right now and it's the first time I didn't even bother taking my shoes off during the flight.

Finally, it's just back to adorable. Both models make my feet look smaller, so, say, with shorts or capris in the summer, you can wear a real shoe and not look clunky. And not have to wear socks, either.

I haven't washed them but trust the shrinkage someone mentioned isn't the result of putting them in the dryer, which I wouldn't dream of and which is certainly not advised. Instead of putting them in the machine, I've been just rubbing out the dirty spots with a rag, water and a little soap. No problems and they come clean easily.
