Love the shoes. Fits nice as expected. I won a gift card from Merrell and to my surprise I really was unaware of them. I have been a runner for roughly 28 years so I've long since stopped reading magazines and checking out the latest fades. I have always counted on my best control shoes so researched the Merrell barefoots all over the internet to find out they have been rated one of the best shoes of this type. Thankfully, I had been able to easity break them in during the fall. Love them so much, I am ordering a pair for my son who has been getting into running the past few years. Thank you Merrell for the great shoe for an old timer running - let's keep up the good work.
