I have loved all of the Merrell minimal/barefoot shoes I have owned. I bought these to keep my feet dry and warm while running outside in the Minnesota winters. I felt that in order to keep my feet warm while running on snow packed streets I needed a water and wind proof shoe, with a little more under the sole of my foot than the traditional Merrell barefoot. These shoes have done the job. I ordered them a half size bigger than my normal size to be able to fit a heavy weight wool sock inside. It has been working well. I was not able to get the heavy sock into my normal size, so the sizing up was important. So far my feet have remained dry and comfortable in these shoes. Please note that these shoes are minimal shoes, so they will not have arch support, and if you are not used to running in a barefoot or minimal shoe you may need to adjust your running stride and will need to work up your mileage slowly to avoid injuries. These shoes are great!

I normally wear a C width but these fit perfectly. They have a fairly wide toe box with a nice snug heel. They are flexible, lightweight, have good trail traction, some padding for pavement, and are actually waterproof.

I'd also recommend: Skora, Inov-8, Keen

I have been looking for a zero drop Gore-Tex shoe, and I think this is the only one on the market. Nice wide toe box, yet snug in the heel, a good fit for me. I was concerned that the tread was not aggressive enough to run in wet grass, but it's great. They keep my feet warm and dry. What's not so great is that the tread pattern is too tight to clear itself, so this shoe is practically unusable in mud. The mud just keeps getting thicker. I'll stick to my Vivobarefoot trail shoes for the mud, even though they are not waterproof, but for wet grass and wet pavement, and cold, this shoe is a good one.

I'd also recommend: Vivobarefoot and Inov-8

Wore these for 2 days of agility trialing in light rain and my feet stayed completely dry. I'm thrilled that Merrell finally made a waterproof barefoot shoe! There was a little discomfort around the back of the heel but I think that will stretch out. Hopefully there will be other colors available soon, as I would definitely get another pair.

I love these shoes. I live in Seattle where it rains a lot. I went running a few times wearing these and not even once I got wet. Also, my feet did not get get all sweaty inside. Its a good quality shoe the only thing I wish it had is taller sides. Also, its a bit harder to run in them on the pavement.

I'd also recommend: MizMooz, Michael C
