I was skeptical at first, but I decided to take a chance with these shoes and I'm glad I did. After wearing them for about a week, I ordered a second pair in a different color. The fit is great and the sizing is, for me, accurate. I am wearing these shoes for both exercise and everyday casual dress. As usual, Zappos provided great service.

I'd also recommend: Brook's Pure Grit 3

They're nice but very narrow. Fat footed persons like myself can't wear socks with them. Perhaps that's the intention with Bare Access - not sure.

I previously wrote about the bare access trail. I've now had them for about 5 months, and wanted to provide an update. I've consistently put about 20-30 miles a week on dirt/rocky trails, and they've held up remarkably well and provide excellent support. During the initial months, sharp edges of the rocks took small chunks out of the lugs, but this didn't have a noticeable impact on my runs. It is only after 5 months of relentless beating that the lugs are starting to get noticeably worn. At this rate, I'll need a new pair in the next couple of months, which is a bit sad. Overall, great shoes, but I wish it lasted longer. I just ordered the trail glove 3, hoping it will be similar with more minimalist feel.

I'd also recommend: vivobarefoot, innov8

These are quite possibly the most comfortable shoes I've ever ran in. I am new to trail running and these are great for the dry terrains of SoCal. It's been about 2 months since purchase and I am still amazed every time I put them on. Warning: These are not for muddy runs since the sole gets caked, reducing traction to almost zero. I love minimalist shoes on the road/treadmill, but the cushioning on these make the runs more comfortable on harsh terrains that would usually hurt, and instead of pain, I am filled with "runners joy." These offer great traction when it's dry, and I feel like I'm flying when I'm in the zone. Some days, I can't help wearing these to work. And I got these specifically for my trail runs.

Great shoes. Excellent cushion and support. Grip of the sole is great for trail hiking and running!
