I have plantar fasciitis in both feet, a spur on my right heel, and also inherited painful ingrown toenails. Finding shoes, or I should say sandals so my toes are open, has been a challenge to say the very least.
In the last couple years, my feet have gotten really bad; only have about 45 mins on concrete floors before I am in so much pain, I need the store's complimentary electric cart to finish shopping. I found this sandal a year ago, after leaving a podiatrist's office with strict orders to get an orthopedic shoe.
This is the MOST WONDERFUL sandal, or shoe, I have EVER had! The comfort and support are literally breathtaking! I am now looking to buy another pair, or 2, or 4, or 6, in other colors too, to last me for as many years as I can. It is the ONLY shoe I will wear! I can even go walking through the bush if I wear the heel strap for more stability.
Hands down; or better, Both Feet Down and Walking, to this shoe! Thank-You, Merrell, for creating the most orthopedic, comfortable sandal in the world; never mind that it's also feminine, rugged, and sporty all at the same time!

The Merrell Siena sandals meld style and support into a comfortable design to keep you going all day, whether at work, strolling through the park or relaxing in the sun. Supple full-grain and nubuck leather uppers wrap insteps for a comfortable, secure fit; soft toe loops are comfortable between toes. Heel and instep straps have rip-and-stick adjustments so you can fine-tune the fit; remove the heel straps to convert sandals into slides. Smooth pigskin linings are soft next to skin. Suede-wrapped, anatomic footbeds with AEGIS Microbe Shield(R) antimicrobial treatment manage odor with ease. Triple-density EVA midsoles with Air Cushion(R) shock-absorbent heel pockets offer all-day cushioning comfort. Injection-molded nylon arch shanks add stability and support on uneven terrain. Q-Form(TM) alignment system provides women with a precise anatomic fit for superb, tailored comfort. Merrell Sunflower(TM) sticky rubber outsoles offer reliable non-slip traction on all types of surfaces.
Merrell adds feminine flair to the cheerful Women's Siena Sandal in a soft leather upper, casual slingback style with a round open toe. A leather toe thong loop and delicate braided nylon strap meet an asymmetrical leather vamp strap, wraparound Velcro® closure with removable slingback heel and wrap ankle strap. Features include a pigskin lining, Q-form aligning Cita-XY Aegis footbed, nylon arch shank and Air Cushion midsole. A Sticky Sunflower rubber outsole with a 1 inch heel gives exceptional grip.
