I tried 3 different shoes with the goal of replacing my worn out vibrams. I enjoy a barefoot feel (zero drop) but need a slightly thicker sole due to our rocky hiking paths. Bare Access Arc 4 These worked out great. Perfect fit - nicely snug but not too tight. Great flex when I kneel or climb on rocks. BRIGHT color (I like it). Nice fit around the ankle. Very slim appearance Bare Access Trail Toooooooo tall feeling. Coming from years of vibram use, these felt really tall. Too much distance between me and the ground. I eliminated them right away. Ankle was also too loose. Bare Access Ultra I liked these but they didn't have the best fit. Too loose for my narrow ankle and too tight at the widest part of my foot. Roomy toe box but tight right before. They also felt taller than the Arc 4.

I'd also recommend: Vibram

I really love these shoes. I'm new to a zero drop shoe and wasn't certain what to expect, but not only are they super comfortable (as in, wear all day comfy), but they don't aggravate my lower back as my other shoes do when I walk long distances. I wear thin, ultra low socks with these, so I can't comment on the bare foot feel of it, but I love how my posture seems somehow readjusted after wearing these shoes. I'll never go back to the old clunky style of athletic shoe.

I always love Merrell shoes but now I cannot find a style that works for me. They are not the same, the heel is to wide, the sole is more rigid, and the arch support is not in the same place so it feels kind of funny. But, I'll keep them because is the best of what I've tried so far. Sorry Merrell, please bring back the old Bare Access and the old Glove!

I like these shoes so much that I have bought them 3 times. I especially like the toe box which is shaped a little differently and more foot-like. I like that they are not bulky and that you can feel the terrain thru the shoe - but not in a bad way.

I love the feel of these shoes, but they were too narrow on me. I have wide feet and can normally wear Merrell shoes. These ran narrow. I loved them so much that I ended up buying the men's version. I also recommend sizing down a half size. I usually wear a 10, but a 9.5 (and an 8 mens) fit me.
