Great shoe

Fantastic fit for my foot; perhaps the best fitting shoe I have found.

I bought these on a whim. The style looked interesting and I love the brand.. I’ve gotta tell you, they are amazing. The sizes, I was told, tend to run small so I went up a half size. The fit is perfect and the look is very nice. I prefer paracord laces so I’m getting some. I absolutely love ❤️ them. Glad I got them. I’m cognizant of the limitations of suede and treat them accordingly. One of my better choices I think.

Garbage Shoe with bad quality control

These new Alpines are complete garbage. I wish they would re-introduce the original Alpine sneakers that were run from 2020 to 2023. These new “recraft” sneakers Have already started to completely fall apart me, and I’ve only owned them for a few months. I only wear them around the house and in the soft grass outside to do some chores. The stitching is coming undone in multiple places, and there is delaminating happening between the sole and body of the shoes. The original Alpine sneaker design was much better, these are not only a worse design, but they have very poor quality control. Don’t buy these if you want issue that’s going to last you more than a month.

LOVE these sneakers

I have these shoes in every color combo offered in both mens and ladies I work as a range safety office at an outdoor shooting range and walk theline about 5-8 miles daily. before I discovered Merrells I often took my shoes off on my way home fromwork as myfeet were killing me. With the alpines I do nto have that issue. Love the colors and wear them daily!

Not my favorite

I have owned alot of Merrell shoes and almost exclusively wear Merrell. I love the brand but I'm not thrilled with these. They are extremely difficult to get on because there is no tongue. I don't understand why Merrell decided to try to reinvent shoe design, but it doesn't work for me. Once you get them on, they are comfortable but the back digs into my heel.

Exactly what I wanted to Travel in

Very comfortable shoe. I purchased them about 2 months ago for something comfortable, stylish and easy to slip on off for a 2 week trip to Japan. They were absolutely great for that purpose. The tongue is sewn in, which is less traditional for a sneaker, but that also made it very easy for me to slip these on and off. They have held up really good after some extensive walking mileage, but the suede in particular feels cheap and I don't expect them to last as long as I'd like, hence the four star rating.

Don’t buy, cheaply made

I wore these twice to coach my son’s lacrosse team and the suede on the toe ripped. Just walking around grass. Disappointed as I’ve always been happy with other Merrells.

Durability issue after 4 months

I enjoyed the shoe for walking and kicking it around town but after 4 months they began to tear. There are holes in the suede on each side of your instep which started to tear. I didn't wear them everyday either so I would have to say the durability of the shoe is poor. I really liked the look and comfort of the shoe so I am pretty disappointed they didn't last longer.

These are slid ins!!!

These shoes are getting a bad rap! They are a laced sneaker which are actually a slip in shoe, so people are complaining that they are too tight and hard to put on. I'll admit, they are a bit tight, but that's the whole idea. When they are on, they are great, and they look so retro!!! I'm a fan.
