Love these slippers. The suede is so soft and flexible.
Wanted a slipper I could wear around the house but also when
I take the dogs out. I did order a 1/2 size down, and I am
glad I did. I normally wear a 9 and ordered the 8 1/2, and
they are perfect. They were a little tight at first but
quickly the suede relaxed and they are just right, I think
the 9 would have been too big after stretching a bit.
I have 3 pair: blue, tan, and black. I'm on my feet at work
and my feet are well supported, and stay comfy all day. I
find these more comfortable than my sneakers. I have short
wide feet and these mold to my foot structure. Waiting for
other colors- wait just saw the lavender ones! Hope they are
at my store!
Last year my daughter wanted to go to Vegas for her 21st
birthday in May. I need to wear orthotics, but didn't want
to wear a heavy shoe in hot Vegas. Our friend who works in a
Nordstrom's women's shoe department recommended the Encore
Breeze 2. It felt very comfortable and bought the Deep Tan.
Anyone who's been to Vegas knows how much walking there is.
My feet did ache only because at day's end, it would not
have mattered what shoe I was wearing. I couldn't believe
how wonderful these shoes were. With their built in
orthotics, I don't need to use my special made ones. A few
weeks later, I returned to Nordstrom to buy a black pair,
but they were out of season. I had to wait until this
spring, but then Nordstrom didn't have my size. To my joy, I
discovered a Merrell store. I left with black and silver
mist. This shoe isn't good for rainy Portland, but I wear
them every chance I can. My feet are in heaven. Keep making
them and I'll keep buying them. I've been telling everyone.
