Performance
extreme comfort and performance - by , Mar 31, 2020
5/ 5 Stars
I was on the search for an extremely comfortable high performance shoe and tried many other high end big brands. The Bare Access XTR did the job and I was extremely pleased with the comfort level. I haven’t owned Merrells in many years and I’m so glad I came back where I belong. Thanks for a great shoe.

updated and way better! - by , Feb 10, 2020
5/ 5 Stars
I've been a Merrell fan forever. I started wearing the Bare Access the year it came out, and I liked the "sure-footed" and lightweight feel. Bought them again. My 2nd pair was getting raggedy so I decided to get the new model. Whoah, big changes for the better! This model has even more of a glove-like feel, seems to have more buildup in the sole (though still zero drop), the stripes in the design are more subtle, and-- there's tangible arch support now! I immediately got another pair in another color. They are handsome, lightweight but supportive, and feel amazing. Also, I should note that Merrell used to run small; but these are spot-on for sizing. I should also say that I'm not a runner but do a lot of walking. This new iteration feels comfortable on hard surfaces for much longer. I'm just really happy with the shoe.

The only athletic shoe for European feet! - by , Jan 20, 2020
5/ 5 Stars
This is my sixth pair of Merrell active shoes. I love the bare access XTR as they feel as if their at one with my foot. Being a ballet dancer for many years; I am used to being, "At one with my shoe." Merrell shoes feel natural with proper support of the many arches of the foot.

Light & comfy ~ perfect for travel & casual wear at home - by , Nov 07, 2019
5/ 5 Stars
This is my third pair of Bare Access shoes, each pair somewhat different from the others. I have loved each of them but this pair is my favorite so far. These shoes are quite light and pack/travel very easily. I find they have enough support to see me through long days of walking on light trails, around home, or through the cobbled streets and stone floors on European adventures. I have a high instep that these shoes comfortably accommodate. I purchased the solid black which is proving to be very versatile with my wardrobe. I am in my 60’s and moderately active.

Not what I expected from a merrell product - by , Aug 29, 2019
1/ 5 Stars
The shoe doesn't come with a removable insole. The design had virtually no arch svupport at all and no cushioning. Without an insole to remove the shoe simply has no room to put in an orthotic or insole. I have bought many barefoot type shoes from merrell in the past that are designed with support in the areas of shoe such as the arch. Really disappointed as I can't return for the store in which I purchased hours away from my home. They are nice looking shoes but for casual wear and in frequent use

These shoes are great for cardio classes, weight lifting classes, step classes and all around working out! I own them in three colors and am considering ordering a fourth!

Great for barefoot / minimalist feel with a little more cushion - by , Aug 16, 2019
5/ 5 Stars
This shoe feels great and supportive but not cumbersome. I have been a long time wearer of minimal/barefoot shoes but have been doing more intense hiking and scrambling lately and found my feet getting tired. I also wanted a shoe that looked less out of place in non-athletic / indoor settings. This shoe feels great, I prefer it over the other Bare Access options (likely because of the Vibram sole). Enough support to keep my feet from getting as tired but still a structure that feels like natural walking. Love the teal color!

Good for occasional wear - by , Jun 25, 2019

Love the color. Love the fit. I have to remove the inner sole to accommodate the use of ankle foot orthotics. Found the toe box to be a little tight. Also found the shoe lacking in the kind of support I have found in other Merrill products; therefore I can only wear them for occasionally.

Light weight, well made shoe - by , Jun 11, 2019

I liked the style of this shoe. It fit approximately to size except that on me the fabric area over the toes was very baggy. I ended up returning it as the Bare Access Flex 2 was a much better fit for me. I think it would have been a nice light weight summer shoe if it had fit me.
