I love the look of the shoe and though I am a jogger, I never ran in mine. Strickly a fashion shoe for me. However I was disappointed when after about 4 months of light use, the tread separated from the shoe just inside where the ball of my foot strikes the ground. I clipped off the floppy piece of tread on the right shoe. THEN THE SAME THING HAPPENED ON THE LEFT SHOE! That tells me that the separation of the tread is probably not a fluke but is a quality of construction issue. Very disappointing!

Very comfortable right out of the box. I have bunions and need a wide toe box. The shoes are very, very light weight. I use them for running errands, walking (3+ miles). They are great so far. The color is okay, nothing great, but not ugly loud colors.

I run about 35-45 miles per week and so am always looking for the "perfect" shoe. I have run several hundred miles in the Ultras. They are very well made, light weight, and comfortable. I have run in huaraches and minimalist-style shoes now for the past 6 years. These shoes, while a bit more than truly minimalist, are still fantastic. I really like them.

There is little to complain about and a lot to love about these. I was disappointed to see no more Road Gloves being made, but this appears so far to be an improvement. The outsole is more aggressive and versatile, yet the shoes still feel light and fast. Fit is identical - I wear an 11.5 in all Merrells. These will work well on trails, grass and roads. I tend to use these for speedwork and racing and longer tempo runs. I wear socks, but you can get away without them. When in doubt, Merrell is a brand you can trust in the minimalist shoe niche.

I'd also recommend: Altra, Skora

Love my Bare Access shoes so looked at buying another pair. The newest version of Bare Access appears to have some durability issues so I ordered a pair of Bare Access "Ultra." Comparing the two, they both fit the same and both are zero drop. The difference is there is more cushioning in the sole of the "ultra." The ultra also has stiffer arch support. Which one do I prefer - The Bare Access. This is because you feel like you are walking barefoot and can feel the ground. After I have been away from support shoes for a while, any support feels weird. I like the ultras a lot, but I like the original version better.
