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.

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.

This is my second pair of Merrell Bare Access Ultra's. I wear a 15 and these are hard to find. The comfort is exceptional and they are very easy to wear all day. I'm a little disappointed about the tread life of the sole, mine are showing significant wear after six months. But I'm a big guy 6'4", 250 lbs so will put more stress on the sole. Can't say enough for the delivery system...Zappos does an exceptional job...I continue to rate them a 12 on a ten point scale.

After reading a bunch of reviews for a this pair of shoes and other shoes, I decided this was my best option. These were purchased about a week prior to going to Disney World, since I wanted to make sure I had the most comfortable shoes possible for all of the walking I was going to have to do during a 6 day/7 night trip. I would estimate we walked anywhere from 5-8 miles per day. I couldn't have been more happy with my purchase. They were extremely comfortable, very breathable, and so lightweight it felt like I was walking barefoot. Would recommend to everyone.
