Most Helpful 5-Star Review

Reviewed by JT from Florida on Friday, December 27, 2013
I have been using these shoes for a couple of years for running. As they are a 0-rise shoe, I use a minimalist (barefoot running) type of stride to which I had to initially and gradually adjust in order to get up to the higher mileage (4-5 miles for me). I started out in Vibram 5 Fingers and will ... Read More

    Finding a good fitting shoe is like playing a game of Goldilocks. Too narrow, too squishy, too stiff, not enough arch support, or Just Plain Ugly. These are light, flexible, just the right amount of cushion to protect the tender parts of your foot. The toe box is roomy, no crunched toe nails. The Vibram sole takes a lot of abuse whether you're running, hiking or chasing a kid through the mall. They stay grippy in the wet too. They are a little thin for walking/running on gravel, you'll feel every stone. I use them as my daily shoe, have used them as my running shoes and even did some trial hiking with them a few times. I've lost track of how many pairs I've worn out over the last couple years. Sizing is close but very consistent, I buy a half size larger than my typical casual shoe.

    This is the shoe that converted me. I thought about getting the 5-finger but that shoe only works if your toes fit it perfectly. This shoe has the same effect with a wide toe-box without the individual toes. I love it. I wore through my previous pair (it quickly became the only shoe I wore). There are some small changes but I still love my new pair. Only problem is hiking with it over smooth-wet rocks. It is more slippery than my conventional hiking shoe. Having said that I wear it all the time in the city and on my last trip I didn't even bring by hiking boots.

    I purchased some Merrell mocs and loved the barefoot feel, so I decided to get some regular running shoes. Both are primarily for everyday use. The mocs have a really comfortable fit. Unfortunately, the trail shoes don't fit so well. The inside part of the ankle opening seems to be too big so there is a fairly large opening when I stand. It's weird, I've never had that happen before. Also the laces attach to a mechanism that pulls down on the tongue. This provides a nice tight fit, but at the cost of flexibility.

    The construction of the shoe is first rate, and I really like the Vibram outsole.

    I also noticed that both of my Merrell barefoot shoes seem to run a bit big compared to other running shoes.

    Best shoes I have ever owned. I have had a pair for a year and put many many miles on them. I tried to use a traditional pair of running shoes a few days ago, and I don't think I could go back. I bought two more pairs of this shoe because I like them so much and I want backups for when I wear my first pair out!

    Again, Merrell does not disappoint. These shoes look good, fit great and are super comfortable.
