I am a walker and have tried so many different brands of tennis shoes, walking shoes, etc. My feet are hard to make happy but I have definitely found the right shoe with my Merrell purchases. I say plural for I have bought this shoe in turquoise, purple and now black. My feet are happy and thank you for a wonderful feeling shoe!!!!!

I love long distance walking on rail trails and around town. This shoe is comfortable, light weight and doesn't tire my feet after a good 6-10 mile walk. A little more substantial sole protects my foot from any possible road debris. Love it!

Merrell's Reply:

You can go for miles in these! Thank you for getting them outside and showing them off around town.

This shoe is very comfy and I just enjoy the bright color as well. This is my second barefoot shoe. I really like the shoe.

  • Love the barefoot shoes but.....

I have been wearing Merrell Barefoot shoes for a couple of years now and love them. They are comfortable and nice looking (I even wear them to work). This pair is almost as nice as the last 2 pairs I have worn, but they are much stiffer and are taking much longer to break in. That being said, I won't wear anything else but my Merrell's for walking (I don't run). I love the way they feel and the way they look! I did have to order a half-size smaller than what I usually wear (a 7 instead of a 7.5). They do tend to run large.

Merrell's Reply:

Thank you so much for these helpful tips on break-in and sizing. We love hearing everywhere our styles get to go. Keep up the great work walking in your Merrell Barefoots.

Purchased these a few months ago for crossfit. I wanted something that would provide a little more arch support than a true barefoot, but yet less cushion and play than a full support run shoe. This model fit the bill. I love the large toe box can never go wrong with a vibram sole, and the colors are fantastic! I got the turquoise and love them. Many people in my gym have purchased these since! Also use them for short distance running - 3-5 miles. My only complaint is that both soles are separating from the shoe near the heel. I never use them in the snow or rain but for some reason, the original bonding agent is failing. Overall, great shoes for cross training if you aren't needing full support.
