Thank you, Merrell! You finally did it. I have been running in the bare arc access version one shoes for years! After running low only stock piled shoes I was forced to look for another! This is what I have been asking for! A full vibram bottom, mesh upper that doesn't feel to plasticky or rigid, and last but not least a wide toe box! The same great cushioning that I'm used to in a zero drop shoe, and just in time for my second half of training for a 50k! Love these shoes! Just wish there were more color combos!

Love the 0mm drop and the wider toe box (without appearing massive and odd looking) and was so excited someone made a zero drop shoe that still had some cushion in it, but around the mid foot the shoe is too narrow for me. It seems to pinch the outside side of my foot to much to get a true barefoot style of walk. I would love to find a pair of shoes that has zero drop and is as cushy as these merrells, but sadly these don't fit my foot.

I had considered buying the Bare Access last summer for my annual vacation in Europe but I didn't want a true minimalist shoe. Really I was looking for something clean and simple aesthetically with the cushioning and support of a walking or running shoe. So I was really excited when the Bare Access Ultra came out. Basically it combines the best of both worlds. It's lightweight and low profile like a minimalist shoe but with some extra cushioning and support. I walked miles in these daily and even did some light hiking and they felt good. My only complaint is the sole. After a few weeks of wear, the Vibram started tearing off the bottom. Other than that, great all around shoe. Thanks Merrell.

I wanted to love this shoe since it was everything I was looking for - wider toe box, extra cushioning for a zero drop shoe, cute...couldn't find a fit that worked. The 8 was too small and the 8.5 was huge. My heel slipped out of the 8.5 too much to run in. I'm really bummed cause it could have been perfect.

Very disappointed with Merrell barefoot. Have run in a pair of trail gloves for about 3 years and I love them. Perfect fit. Was looking for a barefoot shoe with more cushioning for longer distances/road running. The 8 was too small - good fit around the foot, but too short on the toe - and the 8.5 was the right length, but my heel came out of it because it was too large on the back of the foot. I had the same problem with another pair of Merrell barefoot shoes I ordered about a year ago. A third pair of barefoot shoes I recently purchased - the Road Glove Dash 3s - are unwearable. I've run in them several times and something about the way the shoe is structured causes bruising and soreness to the outside of my foot. Will now have to try out other brands for barefoot running shoes. Merrell, please go back to your old sizing and quality!
