I've had these shoes for a while now and would wear them to bed if the wife would let me. I'm not a huge fan of wearing shoes, but Virginia makes me put them on come fall/winter time. However, these Merrell shoes really do feel like you're walking barefoot. The tread on the bottom grips everything and these shoes are suitable for everything under the sun. I'll always keep a pair of these on my feet. I wear them hiking, around the yard, out on the town, and even to work everyday. YOU NEED A PAIR!
