User Review: Merrell Men's Chameleon II Stretch
Price Paid: $80 (sale at DSW)
Currently looking into the newer version of the chameleon stretch. Might try the GTX.
I stumbled on these old reviews and just had to add... My first pair of Merrells were the Chameleon Stretch 2, and they are AMAZING. The stretch "bootie" and elastic "laces" are unique but really make this shoe shine. VIBRAM... 'nuff said. Comfort level is top notch, durability has not been an issue, still look pretty good minus the soles which have been punished for the last 4 years.
Have mostly used these while working in retail (aka hours upon hours of standing), walking all over Athens and the UGA campus x 4 years, backpacking/hiking in North Georgia and Western NC. In a physical therapy clinic (more standing). All have been comfortable, and have outworked all other shoes I have worn.
If I weren't a student living on student loans and watching the debt meter rise with every new week of DPT school I would buy a hand full of these shoes. I'd already be on my second pair by now but the first pair lasted so darned long.
Very Happy Customer, will look to buy these shoes for many years to come. 4.5/5 only because I'm a very tough evaluator.
