Merrell Bare Access
September 04, 2012

Great shoe! Fit is true to size, comfy from the minute you put them on. If you are new to the barefoot technology, this is the shoe to start with. I don't run that much, I wear them for everyday out & about use. Very light on your feet, feel like you are wearing nothing. Very happy with he colors as well. I ordered the basic black. Not to flashy. Will order a pair for my wife!

Pros: good value

a big winner for the feet
June 11, 2013

This is my fifth pair of Bare Access shoes. I use them primarily for sprint work on a track or shorter distance runs. They are close to track shoes in feel and allow for a quick and natural sprint on the balls of the feet. I play sports requiring a fast start and quick coverage of ground. They also are light enough to toss in a backpack for use around the campsite, and for light hiking in the area, or even as a back-up pair of shoes should your hiking boots/shoes fail. I also carry a pair in my pack to wade streams, because they are lighter than tevas. They are protective and dry quickly. In other words, I use them for multiple tasks and usually keep a pair for the specific task. The much touted 5 Fingers footware has never appealed to me and dosen't fit me that well. Merrell gave me exactly what I want in fit, function and form.

Pros: light weight, great fit, true to size, Cons: soles don't wear as well as i'd like

Would do it again

I bought these shoes recently and absolutely love them! My feet need the mesh for breath ability and the support offered by these minimalist shoes is fantastic. I would definitely buy a second pair if they didn't cost so much!
