Positive Reviews:

Most Merrell shoes are super comfy but incredibly ugly so I was very surprised to find this cute little flat among the Merrells. It is super comfy and fits just perfect. I think these are really good on occasions when you need to walk around a lot but don't want to wear sneakers. They are super comfortable I wore them out to an amusement park on my first day and they were like a dream. These are a great alternative to flats and look less casual than sneakers. Perfect if you are on the go! I would recommend a sock liner if you are wearing them for a long period of time; the shoe liner makes your feet sweat after a few hours.

These shoes are cute flats but didn't fit me like I hoped. They were slightly big for my size 8 foot (size 8 shoe). They slipped in the heel but the width seemed good. I have another pair in a different brand but similar style in a 7 1/2 that are just a little I think my feet are between sizes. These shoes have an adjustable strap across which is a nice feature and are a cute design. I had to return mine.

I love the Merrell Encore Mary Jane, and decided to try these. The back comes up very high on the heel [at least on me], but what bothered me more were the two seams on either side of the heel. I got blisters on the insides of both feet! I bought some gel strips for the heels, and now they fit much better, but I'm disappointed that they didn't feel great out of the box, like my other Merrells.

Comfy, low heel with plenty of bounce. If you have difficulty with straps that go over your instep, the lower placement of this strap (which is adjustable) is more comfortable. I like the fabric liner inside the shoe - very comfy. I think that these will stretch a bit like my Merrell Plaza Ballet shoes. So, don't order a larger size than usual. The blue is a nice color.

This is my first pair of Merrell's. I normally wear a 9, but this style fits a bit snug, my toes feel a bit cramped especially on the left shoe. I'm going to try a 9.5 and hope it fits a bit better. Style is really cute. Hope to wear them on vacation this month. The service at Zappos is wonderful! Love it!

This shoe is very comfortable right out of the box. I have been wearing them since this morning and I feel like I am walking on cushions. I especially like the toe box, because it is roomy enough to wiggle my toes. The shoe also looks very cute (I'm wearing Brindle with jeans). Highly recommended!

I find this to be one of the most comfortable and supportive Merrell's I've tried, and I own numerous Merrell boots, shoes, and sandals. They do feel somewhat smaller but not enough to size up; maybe it's the ballet style. I didn't find my heel slipping in these like some of their other styles.

I love these shoes! They function like a tennis shoe but can be worn as a casual flat. They're not the cutest shoe ever, of course, but they're very cute for how comfortable and practical they are. I haven't found anything else that provides this much support but still looks this good.

I usually wear an 8 or 8.5 in all shoes. I guessed an 8 on this one but was wrong. I'm hoping the 8.5 fits because it is a very cute sneaker type shoe with a little more class than a typical clunky sneaker.

It took about two weeks for my feet to get used to these shoes. Those first two weeks my feet ached by the end of the day. Now, though, I have no problems with the shoes and really like them.

Negative Reviews:

I was very sad to have to return this shoe, because it is very cute and very comfortable in the foot bed, and I love Merrells. However, it is cut a little too high on the outside of the ankle, so that it cuts painfully against the bottom of the ankle bone.

Neutral Reviews:

Oh no! I really love the looks of this shoe but the 8 was too short and the 8.5 was too wide. With the 8 my big toe touched the end and with the 8.5 my heel slipped too much. Regretfully will have to return. If you can get a good fit you'll love it.

While I love the look of these shoes, they rub terribly by both the inner and outer ankle. So far, after several wearings, I can't wear them without bandaids in those areas. If I don't tape up these rub points, the shoes rub the skin raw. I'm hoping they get "broken in" soon.

Super comfortable shoe but not super attractive. It's a bit like a mary-jane style sneaker. Gets me through ten hour long work shifts on my feet.

Really sad it didn't work for me. They are so cute, however, the heel box is too wide and slips off.
