These are fantastic! I love these shoes. They are lightweight, true to size and cute as all get out. I am partially paralyzed and walk with canes or walker. Being barefoot helps me keep a feeling of contact with the ground. But I cannot go barefoot all the time so these are the next best thing. They are truly gloves for your feet. I get lots of comments and the yellow actually goes with almost any summery outfit. I got them in two sizes and just returned the one that was too big.

These shoes are adorable and very comfortable. Like the name, they do feel like you are barefoot. I walk a lot and expected more support being that they are Merrell's, but I have worn them several times and expected my feet to hurt at the end of the day and they didn't! They are a little narrow at the toe, but when I push my foot into the heel the way they are supposed to sit in the shoe they fit perfectly. They are very cute and I'm happy with my purchase!

I love this shoe! I was looking for something that would feel close to barefoot, but without the need to wear those crazy five-finger shoes (which I also love, but don't work for a lot of settings). This is perfect. It's super cute, and I get lots of compliments on it. It's easy to slip on and off. It's light, and it feels really durable.

This is my second pair of Merrell's barefoot and they are so comfortable perfect with jeans or a casual dress - they simply look very smart. I plan on getting another pair in a different color and I would recommend them to anyone no matter your age, I am a 71 year old very active Grandma. They are barefoot so there is monarch support just like bare feet! As always Zappos is so easy to work with I had the shoes in a couple of days

I have been a fan of Merrell clogs for years so I trusted that these would be great shoes. They are my new favorite... I wear them instead of sandals for work and play. So comfy and the color goes with everything. I did have to get a half-size larger for comfort; and, had to return a pair because the button rivet had an issue; but, as usual, Zappos was outstanding in making all of that a great experience.

I absolutely love these shoes. I wear them as often as I can. As I expect in barefoot shoes, there is very little arch support, the sole is thin and flexible (which offers some cushioning, but not a lot), and the toe box is spacious. I can wear them with socks or without. My feet are narrow with high arches; the elastic keeps the shoes on but does not pinch nor cause a gathered look to the shoes. I have ordered the aluminum color in the Delight Glove also because I liked this style so much.

I totally dig these shoes and have worn them almost every day since I received them. Those that don't like the barefoot thing will probably have a hard time, especially if you're a heel striker. Nice neutral colors go with everything, will be great for summer work. So far not smelly, let's hope they stay that way. Great versatile shoe.

I needed something comfortable but nice I could wear to work (I commute and hate to wear 1 pair of shoes TO work and another pair AT work). These fit the bill wonderfully. The detail is delicate and classy, the sole is comfortable and casual. I wear it all the time now with dresses, skirts, dress pants, etc. It might be a little too informal for some office settings, but it works for mine. I have a pair of vibram 5 fingers, and I did not like them very much because they were not comfortable (though I was professionally fitted, they pinched my ankle and what little support they provided were in the wrong place). These feel nothing like that. They are comfortable, my normal shoe size is my size in these, and I would definitely recommend them to anyone who wants something a little more dressy and does not need a lot of arch/foot support (these are barefoot, so anyone not used to that may experience some discomfort when using them in the beginning...that would be the case for ANY barefoot style shoe).

This was my second pair of the Merrell barefoot wonder glove. They are my go to shoe. They were comfortable from the first time I wore them and they run true to size. I love buying from Zappos. They have great prices and I love the free delivery and return.

I love these shoes! I have problems with small yet painful bunions that make it difficult for me to find shoes, and these were wonderful straight out of the box. They have roomy toes but are still narrow enough in the heel that my feet do not slip. The barefoot aspect does take a while to get used to, but it makes my feet feel good and healthy. I think they are really cute (especially compared to most of the bunion-friendly shoes that I have looked at). I hope Merrell will make more styles that I can wear to the office.

The barefoot wonder glove is a very comfortable shoe. Almost like barefoot. Quite flexible as well. The strap over the instep keeps the shoe on your foot if you are like me and have difficulty keeping ballet flats on. Not a lot of cushioning through, not sure if would work well for extensive walking. I've received several complements on these. Overall great shoe.

I bought the aluminum color which is a nice beige/khaki/grey depending on what you're wearing. I love the look of the shoe and the color is awesome! They seem comfortable but it will take some time to get use to the barefoot technology (no support); however, I am intrigued and look forward to the benefits. I am also happy to have found a cute, yet functional shoe, that works like a tennis shoe but looks much better. I normally wear a 6.5 or 7. After reading reviews and trying a 7 on at the store (that was huge on me), I ordered a size 6 from Zappos. Alas, it was too short, so wonderful Zappos, exchanged them for a 6.5, which fits but is still a tad on the short side; however, knowing the 7 is too big, I will stick with the 6.5. I have normal to slightly wide feet and they hug my feet perfectly. My daughter has very narrow feet, and they fit her as well; so the challenge is the finding the right length in this shoe. I am already looking forward to buying another pair in black and a pair of the Pace Barefoot shoes, but I will wait to ensure I have no problems adjusting to the barefoot technology first. These will make the ideal shoe for traveling: super light weight, packs small, comfortable, versatile and cute. Hope Merrell will make them in Red!

I was looking for comfortable shoes that look good without socks and with shorts. These are exactly what I was looking for. I get compliments every time I wear them. Just a word of caution. When they call them barefoot they really mean it. So if you are looking for something with arch support or cushioning, these are not for you. I usually wear a 6 but every once in a while I wear a 5½. For these I liked the 5½, so they may run just a bit large.

I was looking to buy a pair of shoes to wear on a trip. I wanted a cute comfortable pair for a lot of walking that weren't sneakers and these are perfect. I'm really digging the barefoot shoe. I don't get blisters no matter how far I walk.

I have never tried a barefoot shoe before. I love it! Unlike a ballet flat, the strap and the elastic heel ensure it stays on your foot and you do have some arch support as the shoe conforms to your foot at the arch. I bought these shoes because I developed lower back pain and heels were aggravating it. So far so good! It is a joy to walk in these... I always enjoy being barefoot when I can be.

Best shoes ever. I am on my feet all day running around at work & I tried all the other good for your feet shoes and I would still come home with blisters and sore feet. Not any more. I love being barefoot and these are a stylish work friendly way to do it. If you commute by mass transit or walk at work...you don't need to look odd with tennis shoes and a skirt suit anymore! I love these shoes. This line is pretty much all I wear.

Love this shoe! Super comfortable. I ordered 1/2 size smaller, since I tried this on in a local store before I purchased. I'm thinking of getting these in another color too.

I had the wrong walking shoes for a city vacation and my feet hurt unbearably. I bought these at another store (sorry Zappos) and walked out wearing them. I bought them in guava and am considering a second pair in another color. I wear an 8 1/2 M and they are true to size. I live in these shoes when I am not walking barefoot in my home. I'm 61 and love the style.

These shoes are unlike any others I've tried. I need comfortable flat shoes for being on my feet all day. I've tried lots of different styles and these are hands down my favorites. They stretch to fit really well -- no sore spots, no rubbing -- and they're as truly flat as anything else I've ever worn. They breathe nicely and my feet don't get sweaty in them. I like them so much I'm getting a second pair. They're certainly not for everyone as they don't offer much in the way of support, but for being on my feet all day I don't think I could be happier with them.
