Poor replacement for Ascend, smaller than expected toebox I have to echo the other reviewers who considered this shoe a poor substitute for the Ascend. Having logged hundreds of miles in these, the Ascend, and the Trail Glove, I feel confident saying that the Ascend was the "just right" shoe even though it wasn't quite as durable as the others (I spent a lot of time perfecting the art of sewing the rapidly disintegrating side fabric/mesh so I could continue to use them). All of my running is on fairly technical rocky trails in VA. The 8mm cushion in these coupled with the taller lugs significantly changed the feedback I received from the trail. In contrast, the 4mm cushion of the Trail Glove was too little on runs of 13+ miles. In contrast, the Ascend were perfect. Ideal cushion, excellent feedback, and a very ample toebox. I don't have particularly wide feet but, with the Bare Access, I had to modify my lacing to not feel severely cramped in my forefoot.

Thank you Merrell! Finally a shoe that has the perfect heel for those of us with Haglund's Deformity. I can run again pain free! These shoes have dual horizontal padding in the back of the heel area that cradle the foot to provide abrasive free comfort. No more pain in the heel and achilles tendon after running.

Thank you Merrell!

I really like these shoes Shoes are comfortable, with good room in the toe box. They are light, and have good traction on trails.

Falling Apart after worn less than 15 times The tread is separating and falling off these shoes. I bought them in the spring and have only worn them a handful of times and they are already falling apart like cheap payless shoes.
