I thought these would be a great pair of mocs. They look great and the price says they are, too. First off, they're definitely not suede foot bed. The foot bed is actually some type of mesh wrapped thin liner. The main issue, though, is this: The point where the sides of the moc are sew together with the upper part of the moc, it creates this sort of divot, or ditch on the inside of the moc. So, there isn't a smooth transition, but more of a gouged out area along that whole seam, on the inside of the moc. Therefore, when I walk around in the mocs, my big toe/toenail constantly gets hung up in that divot about every other stride for both feet. This could be easily fixed if Merrell had some sort of fabric that coated the inside of the moc. It's very uncomfortable. But, besides that, these are decent mocs. They're lightweight and they look great. But, for $120 after tax I would expect almost perfection.
