Reviewer: Linda from San Juan Islands, Washington State
I have very hard feet to fit. AAA width with a AAAA heel. The shoe fit! That says a lot and it supports my very flat feet. I would purchase another pair.
Wears this shoe: Walking on the beach and on local trails. It is stylish enough to wear shopping.
New Balance WW968 Good shoe but ...

Reviewer: Marie from Southern California
These seem like good shoes. Good quality. My problem is that the toe box is too narrow. Even though I ordered extra-wide and the heel slips up and down, the toe box is so tight that I get blisters between my toes. If you have feet shaped similar to Donald Duck's, this shoe probably won't work for you.

Nevados Sage Good outdoor shoes

Reviewer: Megs from Ligonier, PA
I bought these shoes for everyday wear for working at a summer camp. These are good shoes for outdoor activity and mild hiking and are pretty comfortable. They don't have a ton of support for long hikes though.

Reviewer: Mom of Twins from Austin, TX
I bought these as hiking shoes for my 9 year old daughter before our trip to the Rockies, but she has been wearing them for everything - school, tennis, walks, playing, everything. They feel very light and flexible.

Merrell Chameleon 5 Waterproof Excellence in the Details
May 29, 2013
Reviewer: Cathy from Kentucky
I bought my husband the Chameleon 5 Waterproof for his birthday. He already owns Merrell Moab boots. The quality of the shoes are superior. They are great for casual work shoes, for walking, hiking, and biking. My husband is typically difficult to please, but these shoes have been his "go to" pair. They look great with khakis, jeans, and athletic wear. I would definitely recommend the Merrell Chameleon 5 Waterproof-- and yes-- they are definitely waterproof.
