Reviewed by Robert Barklamb - 21st Apr, 2021 Comfortable, but poor wear and durability. I bought these shoes to replace a pair of North Face trainers I’d had for years. Whilst these Merrells are really comfortable, I am extremely disappointed in the wear I’ve had from them. After 4 months the inner lining has worn through on one heel. Worse is that the grip is wearing down at the front and has completely worn through at the rear. The latter means they make a squeaking noise with every step. A very comfortable shoe, but one which won’t last long.
