Review: Merrell Shoes and Boots

Fifty Sense Seal of ApprovalSprint Junior- toddler shoes

When one is trying to find the perfect first walker for a toddler, it is not always as easy as it seems. We spent a couple weeks shopping for shoes that would fit and found out that our grandson had wide feet and none fit. Then, we came across the Sprint Junior by Merrell.

Not only were they a perfect fit, but easy to get on those wiggly feet. He loves wearing them, which is unusual, because he is smart enough to know if they hurt, he is going to take them off! It is a joy to find good fitting, stylish, multipurpose shoes!

Plaza Peak, Dress boots

We have been looking for a stylish, leather boot that fits well, is comfortable, looks great and has great traction. The Plaza Peak fits all these criteria. We love fashion, but have to be sure they are safe in the snow and rain. Finally, we can wear these when we are dressing up and dressing down.

We especially love the fact that they are made for real women, who have calves. The zipper closes all the way up. For those who have skinny legs, they have the advantage of being able to tuck in their skinny leg jeans or pants. Top all this with the fact that they can be used in the snow and rain, it is a great boot for everyday and for travel.

Yarra Boot

Living in northern Michigan, we have looked long and hard for a boot to slip on after skiing or stylish for shopping and dinner. Finally, we found the Yarra boot that is perfect for this kind of lifestyle. Easy to get into after a long day on the slopes, but stylish and comfortable enough to wear all evening.

The waterproof suede capped by wool seals out the elements, while the anatomical footbed and molded arch shank make for wonderful comfort. The sticky outsole is so important for sure footing in the snow, something we all think about after fifty. If we are going to fall down, let it be on the slopes!
