by fromHands Down Hands down the best running / workout shoe I've ever bought. I've got to hand it to Merrell...they make a good shoe. As soon as I put them on my immediate reaction was "wow." It hugged my foot just right. Not too tight not too loose...and it is so breathable. I am still amazed every time I put it on.

by fromPerfectos These are great. I wanted a pair of lightweight shoes to get into barefoot running and these are perfect. They are so light and comfortable, I forget they are even on. I wear them with and without socks and have never gotten a blister. They provide some arch support and a very slight amount of cushioning.

by fromSo far, so good! I just purchased these shoes and did my first long run in them (6 miles). I walked around in these shoes for a few days prior to my first run, and I must admit these are quite comfortable for every day walking. These is just enough cushioning in these so that you aren't feeling every single pebble in the road. These are extremely light weight. Which I am a huge fan of. Those new to minimalist running should REALLY read about transitioning into these shoes as your legs/calves will not be happy with you if you do not ease into these shoes. The width is good, I feel like I can spread my toes while walking/running. Overall, if you are looking for comfortable shoes for walking, these are a MUST. If you are looking for comfortable, lightly cushioned, and very light weight, these are also a great option. I would recommend. These are exactly what I was looking for and look forward to many more miles in them.

by fromGreat Shoe This is my third pair of Merrell barefoot shoes. With minimal cushioning and support, they are great for building strong, healthy feet. My previous shoes I was able to wear without socks, but these have given me blisters whenever I run in them without socks. I go sock less in them if I'm going to the gym or walking around. I like that they don't have any white on them so they don't appear as dirty as they might be!

by fromLove this shoe! I wear these mostly for recreational bike rides and just running errands around town. They are meant to simulate a "barefoot" experience so there's very little cushion or arch support. Do not buy these if that's something you need. I, however, do not need the extra support/cushion and absolutely love these shoes. They are lightweight and very comfortable. Bonus: They are the best shade of green ever! I always get compliments on them!

by fromGood purchase Transitioning to zero lift running shoe, minimal issues. As with anything new, be easy on yourself to adjust. Great comfort, wear almost everyday.

by fromgreat for trail running I use these shoes for running on firm gravel trails. I usually run on roads and need a bit more padding than these provide, as I can easily feel it in my shins after running on road without much padding. However, these are great for trails. They are lightweight and breathable. As with any of the running shoes, if you run a lot as I do, they will wear out, which is why I didn't explicitly list that as a con since I'm used to shoes getting worn after lots of use.
