fit just right - by , Oct 03, 2019

"Bare access" is almost like "barefoot" they fit very nice but I find they're best-used jogging on a track. I walk my dog roughly 8 mi daily and these shoes aren't ideal for that. I would recommend nonetheless. They fit very nicely and are SUPER lightweight.

Excellent shoe! - by , Sep 18, 2019

This is the shoe I have been looking for for about five years. I have used several brands of running shoes but non of them gave the exact dimensions I have been looking for. Merriell knocked it out of the park with the level of detail provided about the shoe in order to make an informed decision. The design fits my extra wide feet perfectly while giving much needed arch support. The material is extremely light weight yet durable.

Best shoe for sprinting - by , Sep 17, 2019

I use these for walking around the gym I work at and for my weekly sprint sessions. They have held up wonderfully and are the most comfortable sprint shoes I've owned. Highly suggest getting them if you need a barefoot shoe with some cushion for sprints.

Nice shoes for using no socks. - by , Aug 28, 2019
5/ 5 Stars
Shoes are nice and fit very well without socks. Was hoping that they were able to accommodate socks, as that was what I was looking for. A little too tight for socks, but I will still use them around the house and for casual walks and hikes. I have other Merrells for hiking. I should have realized that "barefoot" really means no socks. I have lots of Merrell shoes and these were just as nice. Love the brand.

Great, comfy, multipurpose shoe; but both pairs squeak - by , Aug 13, 2019
4/ 5 Stars
The fit and feel of these shoes is great. Certainly not a full minimal shoe, but excellent if you want something with 0 heel-toe drop and a little bit of foam. I started using them for everything (daily city, running, weight training), so I bought a second pair for light duty / to keep cleaner. The first pair are holding up fairly well considering heavier usage, around expectations. Toebox and arch are great even though I tend to have narrower feet. The little rocker/flip at the back of the sole under the heel is nice touch as well. My only real complaint about the shoe is that both pairs have developed (or came with?) a somewhat annoying squeaking sound -- it doesn't matter if the surface is carpet, wood, cement, tile, or a rug...they squeak. I'm guessing there is an issue with adhesion quality between the rubber outsole and the foam that results in some small area of delamination internally, so possibly you get an area of foam that rubs against rubber when the shoe deforms, resulting in the sound. This is not a total dealbreaker, but I also have never had a shoe with this noticeable of a sound; at this price-point, manufacturing standards should be higher. Please fix this for version 3!

Can’t hear anything over the squeaking. - by , Jul 31, 2019
1/ 5 Stars
I was very excited about these shOes. I have worn the barefoot line for the last 8 years and have owned almost every style Merrells has made, the goretex version, even the leather slip on. These started out great, but about a month in, they started to develop a squeak. And now it is unbearable. They squeak ALL THE TIME. Pretty bummed about it.

I can count on Merrell’s Bare Access to fit the same even across styles. This one feels a little loose, but not enough to lose a star.

Extreme comfort - by , Jul 14, 2019
5/ 5 Stars
I have severe foot pain due to peripheral neuropathy and was seeking a shoe that combined softness with roominess with support with good ventilation, qualities that would neutralize the pain resulting from loss of fine nerves in the skin of my feet. I decided to take a chance and order a size larger than my usual 14. The result has been outstanding (no pun intended).. I suggest to my fellow neuropathy sufferers that they give the Bare Access Flex 2 a try. Although these sneakers are true to size, consider ordering a size larger if you want to experiment with extra padding and/or double sox to give yourself some extra room.
