I like minimal shoes, but they seem to be changing. When I first bought these, they were zero drop and minimal padding. Now they're starting to add padding and structure and they seem to be morphing into regular shoes. I hope they don't move away from minimal anymore. These are useful, and last a while, the only downside is they've always been a bit slippery in the rain.

Just what I needed I wanted a bare foot type shoe with some cushioning so I can use them at work and not have to take my shoes on and off. I have a standing desk and found standing in my socks to be the most comfortable, so I ended up buying the Bare Access 4 shoes. The sizing was a little finicky. Apparently I'm between an 11 and 11.5; one foot being just a tad bigger than the other. I have to wear thin socks, and can't walk too far in them otherwise my bigger foot will be in pain as my big toe rubs. When I walk too far in them I find that my foot slides forward a bit, which causes my big toes to rub. I tried to change the lacing and use the top holes to pull the heel in, but it still happens. As long as I wear thin socks, I'm good. They fit my right foot great, and I love it, but my left foot is a little tight. When I originally purchased them I tried 11 and 11.5, and my feet swam in the bigger size. Now for the sole issue.....I'm in the market for some shoe goo as it has started happening to me too after only a couple months. The corner of the bonded sole on the inside of both shoes, back by the heel, has started to pull away. I feel like the placement of the groove back there is just not the best. I feel like I pivot at that point and catch the sole. Hopefully the shoe goo will help. I do like the shoes, and will continue to look to Merrell for cushioned barefoot type shoes in the future.

Beautifully saimple This is a superb shoe because it's does such a great job of being simple. In times where some companies over-engineer, over-sell and over-price their shoes (I'm looking at you Salomon) it's refreshing to find a shoe that has no unwanted features. It's super light, has a nice and wide toe box and required no breaking in at all. Running shoes should be fundamentally simple things and I despair and the gearification of them, and this is where this shoes wins: It's 'just' a shoe. I don't mean that negatively; quite the opposite. All running shoes should be like this. Just tie them to your feet and run. It's not complicated.

Everything it says it is! Please please keep the Bare access and don't replace it with the Flex!! If you could continue to offer both models it would be fantastic. The Bare access 4 is the best versio so far. It is the perfect road shoe, i have almost 1200km on my first blue pair and soon 400km on my second red pair in rotation and they will just not break down! Great sole durability and on the uppers too.

Great lightweight shoe. My way of judging a shoe is pretty simple. If I don't notice them on my feet, then they must be comfortable. My first day with these shoes lasted 12 hrs. Never once did I feel any discomfort. Perfect fit right out of the box. Good arch support, nice wide toe box, good ventilation, maybe a little thinner on the soles, but overall a great shoe. Very light. No complaints, very similar fit and feel to another Merrell shoe I have.
