Merrell Women's Access Barefoot Trail Running Shoe
Unbelievable comfort. I need arch support in a shoe, especially a sneaker. I tried this barefoot style for the first time and I'm in love! They are not only the most comfortable shoe I have ever worn, my feet feel better after wearing them for a day. I'll be walking all over Paris in a few weeks and look forward to seeing everything thanks to these sneaks. I have a new loyalty in comfort!

first time with barefoot shoes
I read the other reviews about this shoe and was convinced to try them. I ran a 6K cross country race right after I got them, and then a 5K part dirt/part pavement race with them two weeks later. They seem to do fine. I was a bit leery because I have heel spurs and usually wear prescription orthotics, but just wore these shoes without them. I seemed to have plenty of support and no soreness afterward. I'm also going on a cruise tour in Alaska in a few weeks and plan to take them along for trail hiking. Very lightweight. It was a funny sensation when I first wore them, because the upper is a very porous fabric and the cool air came blowing across my feet. Overall, I am happy with them.

Best shoes ever. Period.
Just bought these & wore them the next day without wearing them beforehand, to go hiking in the mountains. Once I put them on, I forgot I was wearing shoes. I hated to take them off last night.
The wide toe box allows your foot to spread out comfortably. They are machine washable, have reflective material on the sides and an anti-microbial lining, and they are fully ventilated, so your feet stay cool. Honestly, they are the most comfortable shoes I have ever worn. I know they are advertised as running shoes, but they worked fine for hiking too.
I'm going to buy another pair & put them away, in case they are discontinued. Recommend this shoe without reservation. A very fine product by Merrell.

This shoe has a wide toe box.
This shoe is extremely light weight and was comfortable from the moment I put it on. It also has a wide toe box, which helps if you have any problem with old blisters or sore spots.

I would buy this product again and again
Use for long hikes

I may buy another pair for my daughter.
These are the most comfortable sneakers that I have ever owned. They are also very light weight. My teenage daughter also loves them and always asks me if she can wear them.
