Like a supportive mocassin Great arch support, and a super flexible sole for feeling the ground under your feet, something I find very useful for balance. There is no sole cushion at all, however, and no insole, a problem if you have arthritis. I bought a thin cushioned insole and had no problem fitting it and my high-arched feet in, and they are super comfortable. I have been wearing them in the house (winter in Wisconsin), but will be using them for day hiking. I love the dark blue color I ordered.

Second Best These are pretty decent sneakers that need some initial breaking in, but are fairly comfy afterwards. They don't feel as much like a barefoot sneaker as I would like and I highly prefer my Trail Gloves. These seem to have more support to them that actually adds unwanted pressure to my feet, but overall they're a good shoe.

Comfortable and great fit! This shoe is so lightweight and comfortable. It fits perfect and I have narrow feet (usually most shoes fit in length but are too wide.) Awesome arch support too! Highly recommend this shoe.

Smaller than my old (same size) Merrells I ordered the Bare Access Flex as a replacement for my current Merrells and was sadly disappointed. Ordered my usual size but could barely get them on. When I held them up to my old Merrells (same size), they were a full inch shorter! And narrower. And alas, nowhere near as flexible at the arch. Merrell has always been my go-to brand - I'm puzzled and sad that I'll have to look elsewhere now.

Love These Shoes I stumbled upon these shoes when I needed new workout shoes because I was having really bad shin splints. I knew I needed something with great arch support, since I have really high arches, and my shin splints were a result of a lack of an arch. These shoes didn't look like they would give me enough support, but they were light and I tried them on. Also, I wear a 10.5 and therefore, I am limited in my selection of shoes I can wear as it is. Upon slipping these on my feet, they were satisfied with the length and roomy toe box. I think I have usually weird shaped feet, but I'm probably not alone. Anyhow, large ball, narrow heel, and really high arch. I supinate when I walk and my heels turn inward a little as well. I did not notice any of my weird feet issues when I put these shoes on! After lacing them up, I was really surprised at how much of an arch support there really is - and just how well they conform to my feet! The ultimate test, though, was how well they felt after a workout. I know these are primarily for trail running, but I use them for my workouts at OrangeTheory and I wear them every day out and about! After ONE week of wearing them to the gym, my shin splints disappeared!! I couldn't believe it, because I'd had shin splints for a long time! I was so impressed with my first pair, that I bought another pair, and am about to buy 3 more! I love these shoes and I really hope Merrell never discontinues them as it's really difficult for me to find shoes that work with all my weird feet issues, and these do!
