Not as long lasting as I had hoped otherwise good - by , Sep 28, 2020
3/ 5 Stars
I've only had these shoes for a few months and they're already showing moderate signs of wear. The wear is mostly on the two sides of the toe box. This is not a high area of friction but rather an area of flexion when I am walking or jogging. I had had the trail glove 3 for three years on the other hand and those were extremely durable. Otherwise, I like the way that they look, the 0mm heel to toe drop, fit, amount of cushion.

I love Merrell shoes, doing a lot of running over the years and now CrossFit I need a show that performs. Merrel have excelled in both. Man of there shoes has an amazing gym floor grip. I bought these for new running shoes. In and out of the gym. The Bare Acess feels lighter than advertised and is heartier when i run on pavement or side streets. Highly recommended these shoes for any foot.

I'd forgotten how used to metal eyelets I'd become after 77 years! Voila! EYELETS! Wow! How did we ever forget them? Oh, yeah. 'Progress.' 'Newer' is much better than 'older.' 'We can only sell something if its 'cutting edge.' Blah, blah. (Sorry.) Ahem . . . oh, yes, the review! Although I've been a runner when younger, I walk for daily exercise, now. I've been buying the '0 heel to toe,' series, ('Glove' ??) from you for several years . . . maybe 5, or 6 pair. . The 'barefoot runner' is a perfect shoe for this. The last several pair of your shoes I've used have the terrible cloth eyelets that tie okay, but always tangle and trap a foot, (or both,) when putting them on. Most often the laces end up under my foot, so to tie the shoe, one has to remove it, sort the laces, and put it back on to tie. These modern idea marvels probably look great on paper, but they're really a lame design. Marketing and sales staff probably love them. I don't. Now, the great thing! These 'new' Bare Access XTR are, overall, the best light weight shoe I've ever had. I love them! I use them as walking shoes, but also have pretty much replaced a couple pair of my Brand X 'sneakers',(also with cloth eyelets,) with your excellent shoe. They 'look' good, are very comfortable, and 'go with' jeans, Khakis, etc. Five stars, follks! (And PLEASE keep at least a couple eyelet laced shoes in your line!! GA

Bare Access XTR Review - by , Sep 02, 2020
3/ 5 Stars
I received the shoes promptly from Merril. I was excited to open the box. The shoe looked very good. It was very light and would have complemented my Merrill Moab which I use for my long hikes. Unfortunately I had ordered 8.5 size as per my past purchase of Moab shoes. The shoes were larger than I expected so I had to return them They were out of size 8.0 so I will wait until they are back in stock. Certainly a good pair of shoes to have.

Im 62 y/o 5 "7 150lb, I hike 3-4 times a week up a 1.75mile 1000 foot elevation gain up and 1.75 mile back. I been doing this hike for about 3 years, tried a few differnt shoes, Solomen speedcross most recent. I find different weather conditions for different shoes, latley the speedcross has caused me to twist my ankle, might be due to the very aggressive tread in the dry and loose terain of the summer , so I tried out me new Bare Access XTR shoes and felt very grounded, like walking barefoot without the pain of rocks etc. Great traction in the dry steep trail dirt, great across rocks big and small. Its like my foot contoured to the ground and I felt very agile. Confident going up and down and was amazed with how well they shield me from the sharp rocks. Light and grounded, Bare Access is accurate description. For a summer hiker and a secure footing and feel i would recomend. They do take some getting used to so I wore around the house for a few days and tried a few innersoles as I do with most shoes I own, the jury is still out on that some caused to much arch support for my low arch feet. I removed all innersoles and just back to the bare boens the shoe comes with.The toe box is wide and seems to provide a minimum of protection, yet to stub my toe and not looking forward to the outcome, but maybe i will be as surprised as I am with the rest of the shoe.
