First of all, the soles should last ages. My previous ones had Vibram soles like these and even after all the walking I've done in them they still look good and show hardly any sign of wear. These ones have a different tread pattern but feel sturdy yet flexible. The footbed is comfortable and waterproof, so you can splash around in the sea or wear them in the rain and they'll dry quickly.
The straps are where things are a little different. My previous Merrell sandals had velcro straps in the same position as these, and although they were comfortable to wear the canvassy material could rub a little if you were walking an extended distance. I didn't notice when I looked at the product image but when they arrived, I saw that these ones have a neoprene-like "sock" of sorts, that runs behind the heel strap and underneath the two that cross the top of the foot. Your foot isn't fully enclosed, but these three bands prevent the straps from rubbing and make the sandals even more comfortable. Again, the material is quick drying.
The three velcro straps allow the fit to be adjusted, so if they feel a little snug or loose out of the box, have a mess with them and you'll be able to tailor them to your feet in next to no time.
All in all I'm really pleased with these, and if they last as long as my previous pair I'll be delighted.
I have very normal shaped feet. I've never had any trouble wearing standard shoes, boots and sandals. However, these sandals, which I ordered in my normal size, were an inch and a half too long while the velcro on the straps only just overlapped in some cases. They were obviously modelled on someone with long thin feet.
The neoprene pads under the straps seemed like a good idea when I ordered them but they had just been poorly fitted. The one over the toes was too loose and so moved around under the straps, the heel one was also too loose and so slipped down and the one over the top of the foot was too tight and didn't fit under the straps properly resulting in a sharp, plastic corner of the straps digging painfully into my foot.
Another problem was getting them on. In order to get into the neoprene the main straps had to be loosened and the neoprene carefully pulled back into place under the straps. The straps then had to be juggled so that they fitted as well as they could over the neoprene. Even then, after walking for a few minutes, everything had moved out of place and sharp bits of plastic were eating holes into my skin.
I rapidly gave up with them and sent them back.
Unfortunately for me, I bought these because they are described as hiking sandals which, given how soft and flexible they are, they are not. I would describe them as either a beach sandal or, if there is such a thing, a strolling sandal.
I've been for a few ~6 mile walks in them and they were ok over that distance, not perfect but ok. I've just got back from a 12 mile walk and my feet are aching more than they have in a long time and I have a blister on the ball of my left foot. I regularly walk longer distances so I know how my feet should be feeling right now and this isn't it!
Long story short - for the beach or very short walks they are perfect. For hiking, buy something else.
Pros: comfy, good tight fit, no rubbing, excellent sole with solid grip, comfy cushioned strapping.
Cons: cushioning material is synthetic, it really makes your feet sweat and gets wet - and smelly unless you wash them. The main flaw is the strapping - although the velcro is adjustable, it's velcro and it's now badly losing its adhesiveness to the extent that it randomly comes undone.
This pair won't last a third year and were not as good as my two previous pairs of Clarkes, one of which lasted 10 years and 6 years and were only dispensed with when the sole wore out or the strapping finally gave way. These were much more expensive.
In short, you can hammer these Merrells for 2 years and then they're pretty much done.
