Awesome shoe. Spent 3 days going up and down rocks, mud, muck, slippery terrain and serious inclines and never slipped. Not once.
I wasn't so sure about the slipper fit design, not having a tongue like a normal shoe, but I grew fond of it. I'm young, I've got to try new things, right?
I like the pull string shoe laces, and the only reason this shoe doesn't get a whole 5 stars is because the shoe bungies are hard to deal with once you tighten your shoes. But it was my first time wearing them out really, so I'm sure I was just being dull and not thinking about it the right way.
My feet hurt very little after putting on about 13 miles in a day, and about 23 in a 3 day span. Awesome shoe, would highly recommend to anyone else. Great multi-terrain, very good on the GA rocks and muck.
Way to go, Merrell.
