Merrell is a reliable brand when looking for a great shoe to sightsee in. These mary janes are 100% leather, have a removable contoured insole for flexible support, a rubber sole, and are washable!

Amazon User Review: “Love these!! I have the Ember flat also, which is basically this shoe w/o the strap. They broke in easily & are a decently supportive shoe that looks professional & stylish, not matronly. They do get sweaty/smelly (all leather), so a liner is advised. I get lots of compliments on these.’
