Comments: Wore these shoes for one run and was so sore and beat up the rest of the day I sent them back. I ran on a paved trail (these shoes are meant for pavement) and they felt extremely firm without any cushioning despite there being a thick-ish mid-sole. I didn't particularly notice the arch as other reviews have claimed, but the shoe felt so awful I wouldn't rule it out. The toe boxes aren't nearly as wide as previous Merrel shoes (I have run hundreds of miles in the Trail Glove and Ascend Glove) so my feet felt pinched. I have done a ton of running in the Altra Lone Peak 1.5 and they are a much softer ride with more room in the toes. I was hoping these shoes would be a faster feeling trail shoe with wide toes and zero drop, but I felt slow and clunky. Thank you RunningWarehouse for allowing me to run in them and return them, I would have been stuck with a worthless pair of shoes.

Comments: Lisa is right allthough i don`t really mind the arch build up, it is kind of soft also. I sold my size 10 and had to go for 10,5 by the way. 10 in Bare Access.

Comments: This would be a great zero drop shoe if not for the built up arch. I'll stick with Altra from now on.

Comments: Great shoe.. Very happy with it. Light, well made, very versatile, just a very good light shoe for long runs and speed training/ races A bit firmer and not as mushy as Virrata, and much more connected to the ground compared to Kinvara. Cant speak of durability yet, but had issues with Bare Access on that. This shoe is a very easy transition shoe for those who are keen on lower drop. I am very used to zero drop and very minimal shoes, so to me it is almost a bit too much protection. Size is as expected, maybe a hair smaller than Bare Access 3. But i wear the same size. A great buy!
