I bought these shoes for all around hiking and for hot weather. Overall I like the shoes but I will do pros/ cons.
pros: very breathable, drain holes, soft soles, nice cushion in heal.
cons: a little flashy for my taste with the silver on the heel, the heel cup "cord" doesn't really tighten unless they came laced incorrectly.
Overall I think these shoes are way better built than any merrell that I have owned. Hopefully they will bring out some new colors in the future.
