I love them.
I really do love them, great traction, they look great and they are easy to slip on and off. I have worn them all over Afghanistan, Malaysia, China and other hotter than hell middle eastern countries. They are a great shoe that goes great with your hiking gear or a pair of jeans. The one hang up preventing 5 stars is the toe where the vibram sole meets the upper. After two days of non-stop hiking up limestone and granite terrain the sole separated from the toe area and also a little in the heal area... To the shoe's credit, I was beating the hell out of them, running, sliding and pinching them in between rocks (hind site tells me i should have been wearing boots...). All in all, I love Merrell products and will continue to buy their shoes.
