  • Most Comfortable Running Shoes

These are the most comfortable running shoes. They are so comfortable and look so good that I bought 2 pairs. They look great and feel great. Merrell is a top notch company with great customer service that makes top quality products. I also own 2 pairs of ventilators and a pair of hiking boots that have lasted quite a while. I expect these shoes to last as well. Thanks, Merrell!!

Thank you for adding another great shoe to your growing Merrell collection! The Bare Acess 3's are an excellent style if you are looking for a long distance running shoe for the road. They offer an great amount of cushioning to help absorb some of the shock you endure while running.

  • Too narrow for my wide foot

I need a wide toe box and these were just a little bit too narrow for me. I returned the shoes and ordered the next size up (which I am waiting for now). What really amazed me was how easy it was to return these shoes (that is why I have the high rating). Merrell included a pre-paid return label with the shoes. I just re-wrapped in the original packaging, pulled off the old labels and taped on the new return label. The box fit in a Fed Ex drop box near my work, so it couldn't have been easier.

I plan to use this for both casual use and running when it is too cold to run barefoot.

  • An even better all-around athletic shoe

With the third generation of the Bare Access, Merrell has made improvements to an already superior shoe. It is my only shoe for tennis and preferred shoe for extended walks. The size is about 1/2 size larger than my shoe size.

We are so thrilled you love them and like the minor improvements. Also, thank you for the tip on sizing.

  • awesome but BEWARE HOT SPOTS

I love Merrell's Vapor Glove. So much that I've purchased a second pair and have racked up over 500 miles on them. But I have been looking for a shoe with a little more cushioning without sacrificing zero drop and I thought I found it with the Bare Access 3. And I'm not giving up on it yet. My first run out of the box was a planned 7 miler. Mile 1, the shoe felt great except the heel material felt a little stiff and rubbed on my achilles. Mile 2, the achilles issue softened and the shoes felt tremendous. Mile 3 and we are still cooking except the area behind the ball of both feet and along the arch near the forefoot started to get hot. I stopped and retied the shoes. A half mile later the area above the toes where the laces are stitched started to heat up too. Mile 4 and we are having some serious issues with hot spots. 4.5 mile I knew I was going to have to stop soon or take the shoes off and run barefoot. Mile 5 I was done and walking back to my apartment. LESSON 1- DON'T WEAR THESE SHOES WITHOUT SOCKS!! (I wear the vapor gloves without socks but they have zero cushioning so the irritation is minimal yet still there at the tops of the toes if you don't lace the shoes loose). I've attached pictures of my feet detailing the hot spots from the shoe. They are identical. I am not giving up on this shoe. It felt amazing up until the blisters. I mean it really performed well. The only thing that bothered me was the hot spots. And that may be my fault. My next run will be with socks no doubt. But if the problem persists I will have to send the shoe back to Merrell, but I really don't want to. They are light, zero drop, reflective, well cushioned and fast. I'm keeping my fingers crossed. Sizing- I wear an 11 in the Vapor Gloves but went up a half size in this shoe and it was definitely the right decision. The attached image is of the hot spots on one foot. They are identical on the other. This is the part where the shoe flexes. wear your socks!!

Merrell's Reply:

With a brand new shoe, it may be best to wear socks the first time or two, so they have a chance to break-in slightly. Make sure to update us and let us know how they do on your next run. Your feedback on these is greatly appreciated! Thank you.
