Merrell's M-Select MOVE foot-frame is anatomically designed to follow the natural flex of your foot, to give you an ideal combination of natural movement, stability and all-day comfort. M-Select FRESH prevents odors. Merrell's unique GRIP outsole delivers durable, highly slip-resistant traction on any surface. Fashionable and vintage stitch-down construction adds suppleness and flexibility to these extraordinarily lightweight and distinctive shoes.
I have owned four of the predecessors to these...2 black and 2 brown...loved them...my go to shoes with jeans. These...not so much. Leather feels cheap and stiff...not breaking in. The others were soft out of the box. The sole seems cheap...not sure of the point in trying to make them so light...they are not running shoes. They don't fit the same...narrower and longer. The appearance is ok, but not nearly as nice as the others. Donating them to the mission and purchasing another brand. Herrington Catalog Response: We apologize you were disappointed in your Merrell Diplomats. We contacted Merrell on your behalf, and were given the following information: The construction and technology has not changed since the introduction of this shoe in 2013. The full grain leather is thicker than some of their other footwear, and is not meant to form closely to the foot. Maybe a more casual, form-fitting Merrell would better suit your needs.
