I found the Merrell's too narrow as well. I have VFF Spyridon LS's and NB Minimus 3090's (these have a 6mm drop) for running. The NB MT20v2 is my next shoe. I tried them on and they are awesome. At the end of the day, the Merrells and NB's are comparable in what they are trying to be so just go with the one that feels most comfortable. Since you may where them to the office, the NB MT20v2 in all black make a nice discreet option.
