I had wondered about this shoe brand for
years but never bought them, what a mistake that was, these
are the most comfortable shoes I have ever worn. I wear them
every day. I have knee problems and these shoes have all but
ended the daily discomfort I lived with for years. I only
hope they ware as well as they feel.
I was looking for a walking shoe that looked like a dress
shoe and felt like a true walking shoe. This Rockford World
Tour shoe fit the bill perfectly. There is nothing about it
I dislike. I would recommend this show for older people
(like me) who do not wish to wear one of the many white
walking or sport shoes, but wish to have the same comfort
Merrell is a brand I know I can always buy without trying
on. There are others similar to the World Tour that I can
get to fit from time to time but must try them. Barefoot
fits me the same every time. I am not afraid to buy online.
I wear a size 15 normal width.
I do a lot of training -- on my feet an hour at a time,
several times a day. These shoes are great for that with the
cushioned sole and heel. My only complaint is the shoe laces
are not a standard length; so when they eventually break
after a couple of years, the replacement laces are either
way too long or way too short.
I bought this shoe for my husband. His size and width were
true and he just swears by these for his job as a high
school custodian! It wears like lead and saves his legs and
knees which suffer from arthritis pain at times. This is the
3rd pair of these he has had. He wears them for work and at
home so they really are worn a lot - and I do mean a lot!
Every time I ask him if he would like to try something else,
he just says "NO"! This shoe has taken the buying woes out
of my search for comfort and durability!
The Lychee holds up much better than the nubuck finish. The
shoes hold up well on the construction site, and the leather
cleans up beautifully when exposed to sheetrock dust,
sawdust and mud. They clean up so well I can wear them for
dressier occasions as well as on-the-job.
