Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size

During the winter, I used them mostly in the gym and have loved them. They are breathable and have just enough cushioning so that my feet don't hurt like they do with a true barefoot shoe. Now that the weather is nicer, they are out of the gym and I wear them everywhere on sunny days. They are the opposite of waterproof, more like sponges. I do a lot of walking on a college campus and I also usually walk a couple of miles home from school and these are fantastic walking shoes. I'm not a young college student either so I really want comfy shoes and these are my favorite. Also, they have a nice wide toe box so my toes aren't squished together.

These shoes have been very comfortable. I love a big toe box and these are great. I have hiked in the Utah snow and in Death Valley and no blisters or sore feet. However, they are not very durable. After 2 months, there is a hole in the top of one shoe. I am not hard on my shoes, so I expect them to last better than that. Until the hole, my feet stayed nice and dry, now I get a wet spot by my big toe every time it rains or if I'm in the snow. It's really annoying because although I do hike, I bought these shoes to keep my feet comfy AND dry while walking around a college campus all winter. Because of the durability issue, they are overpriced. I would not buy them again.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

I bought these for walking around a college campus in the winter. I was sick of wet feet all day in classes. I was initially a little sad, they aren't as wide as a lot of other Merrell shoes, and not quite as comfortable. Yesterday made up for it. We had a big snowstorm and the buses weren't running all the way to campus, so I had to walk for an hour in a blizzard. My feet were the warmest part of me, and though the snow was pretty wet, my feet stayed dry. So I may not wear these every day, they will definitely be worn any day that may be wet.

I bought these as a good all around shoe, it looked nice enough to wear to my office too. The biggest problem (and it's a biggie) is that the strap rubs against the top of my foot and gave me blisters. So I NEVER wear it hiking, running or without socks. I will keep it for wearing at work, the black is a very nice look, but disappointed that I can't wear them much otherwise. With socks and for lighter duty, they are still very comfortable. Oh and unlike the previous post, I did order my normal size and I'm glad I did or the strap probably wouldn't even fit on my foot.

We've had an older model of this for about 2 years now. We love it! I'm not very tough, but bought it for hiking while my husband was deployed, I was able to carry my 1 year old on several long hikes with little discomfort (just a little in the shoulders). When my husband came home, he was able to adjust the carrier to his size and he's alot taller and bigger around than I am. Our daughter is now almost 3 and still can ride comfortably. The balance is good even on snowy and steep trails. We constantly get asked where to buy one just like ours. There is also enough room to carry snacks, water, diapers,first aid kit, and a few other odds and ends - and we can keep dirty stuff separate from the food which comes in handy.
