Men's Barefoot Bare Access 2

Select Color:



Free up your running style with men’s barefoot running shoes. Barefoot running helps you adjust to your natural gait, strengthens muscles and often alleviates pain. However, it’s important to ease into this new style to avoid injuries. Our men’s Barefoot Run Bare Access 2 is a minimalist running shoe with a 0mm drop and uniform toe-to-heel cushioning to let your feet land flat with less impact as you adjust. Choosing a more cushioned men’s athletic shoe is ideal for runners who like longer distances, train on harder surfaces or are transitioning to barefoot running. Plus, its breathable upper and feather-light construction adds to your foot freedom. Start your next adventure with men’s barefoot running shoes from Merrell.

I had the old bare access but I think the new one is even more comfortable. The extra cushioning compared to the other Merrell Barefoots are instantly recognised and means the shoe almost feels like a normal running shoe but with the benefit of 0mm drop. My back and knees are much better now since wearing barefoot and I can wear these all day for work or for a run on the streets. Great style and comfort...will get another colour soon.

I got a pair of the Bare Access 2 in the charcoal colour 4 weeks ago and haven't taken them off my feet. Lightweight and soooo comfy.

I biught a pair of these Bare Access 2 shoes early December 2013 to replace my aging Merrell Trail Gloves. The BA2s are amazingly comfortable and light which is great for travel. I am however very disappointed that after only a few months of moderate wear the uppers on both shoes have become wafer thin and about to open up on both sides where they meet the sole behind the toe cap. Such a shame as they are such comfortable shoes.

Merrell's Reply:

Sorry to hear that you have had this problem with your Bare Access 2. They are one of our most popular shoes, but from time to time a faulty pair may slip through quality control. Please take them back to the place of purchase and they can help you with a refund or replacement pair.
