Too narrow for my foot - by , Sep 02, 2020
4/ 5 Stars
I was super excited about these sandals because the weight is low, the tread is super grippy, and the strap system is minimal and technical. Also they don't use the thong sandal fixture like Bedrocks do, nor are they chonky like Chacos. Unfortunately when I put them on, the width of the straps across my toes and forefoot was way too narrow. I wore them around the house all day and my smallest toes got crunched. I'm a size 11.5 and went with the size 11, which was the perfect length, but as mentioned the width was not right for me. If your feet are normal width or even narrow width, these will probably work out great! I've gone a different direction and will be returning them, but they shipped quickly and look cool! :)

Finally used up in the beach of Cali, nice foot grip while in the sand as well as in the rocks doing a little hike.

Lightweight with great vibram tread! - by , Aug 28, 2020
4/ 5 Stars
I wish I knew there was a green option, as I only had options of grey or black. These sandals are fairly basic but they are nice and lightweight, and the vibram soles are great quality for hiking and waterways. The size of the footbed is smaller than I would expect, and my toes are close to the edge. I think many of Merrell shoes/sandals have this tight footbed, which fits but barely. I would like to see some models with slightly wider and longer footbeds.

Finally! A camp friendly option in a size 15! - by , Aug 25, 2020
5/ 5 Stars
If you have smaller feet then you may have lots of good options. If you are a size 15 - then stop looking. This is it. These are extremely light, dry fast, very stable on the feet even in swiftwater, don't collect abrasive material (in excess), are easy to get on and off, and are actually the size they say they are. I went through 7 other potential options via Amazon and they all went back faster than prime could send them. Merrell knows how to make a good shoe and there isn't any need for a middleman here. Best camp shoe (in a size 15).

I just took these on their first three-day riverside camping trip. They worked out great. Comfortable in the water and on the trail — exactly what I wanted.

Decent Sandal for the price - by , Aug 17, 2020
4/ 5 Stars
After going through every manufacturer's sandals twice now, I'm fairly happy with these Merrells. They are not overly heavy or clunky, though I still prefer a more minimalist sandal. Tread is grippy and the foot bed is comfortable and the straps are adjustable and comfortable as well.

High hopes, then disappointed - by , Aug 15, 2020
2/ 5 Stars
Loved these sandals and they were great for a couple of months. Very comfortable and seemed durable. To be fair the straps and Vibram outsole are very durable. Unfortunately, it seems the adhesive holding things together isn’t. I’ve only had these for a few months and haven’t really done anything heavy duty in them (just walks, and a couple times in small rivers). On one sandal the sole separated from the upper. And on the other the front part of the straps came out of where they connect to the sole. With both of them you can see that the adhesive has come apart or failed. Still think they’re great sandals. Just hope that Merrell can fix this issue. They’d be a 5 star if they lasted longer.

Sole separated from footbed - by , Aug 11, 2020

These were just what I was looking for to get in and out of my kayak. Sad that the sole separated from the footbed after only a few times in the water.

Great for light duty watery activities - by , Aug 02, 2020
3/ 5 Stars
Easy to slip on and off by loosening the heel strap - with no need to readjust the front or vamp straps. This is really convenient. Webbing straps are not the most comfortable and don't necessarily hold the foot exactly centered in the foot-bed. (Feet may slide forward.) Over-tightening the front strap to stop foot movement could create pressure on the hallux metatarsal phalangeal (MTP) joint. Sole tread is effective. I wouldn't wear them all day but they are great for my purposes.

No regrets here :) they fit perfectly and compared to other sandals my feet didn’t sweat as much in these. They have a good grip and the style overall is very attractive. Worth the price!!!
