        Comments about MERRELL Women's Bare Access Arc 2 Barefoot Running Shoes, Aqua:

        This is my first minimalist shoe. I used to wear vans and converse before I made the switch. It's light, breathable, and has decent arch support. The traction was mostly designed for rougher surfaces, but it can be fun to slide around on dry leaves as well.
        I wanted this for everything (walking, running, hiking, casual, etc) and it's been holding up so far. I prefer lighter weight shoes that make me feel in control with my balance, and this shoe does a good job of that.

          Comments about MERRELL Women's Bare Access Arc 2 Barefoot Running Shoes, Aqua:

          I purchased theses shoes because I wanted to change my running style to a barefoot gait. I haven't used the shoes much yet but they seem like great training and transition shoes. There's plenty of padding to switch between toe-heel and heel-toe strikes, which is necessary when first changing to barefoot running. Overall, I am very happy with the product.

            Comments about MERRELL Women's Bare Access Arc 2 Barefoot Running Shoes, Aqua:

            I got these shoes because I was looking for a minimalist shoe that would not be fully a 0 degree shoe which would be bad for my ankle. These are roughly halfway between a true minimalist and a sneaker.

            I absolutely LOVE these shoes, they're comfortable, stylish and breathable. I did have a problem with a piece of the sole separating on the left shoe around the ball of the foot. EMS was nice enough to give me a different pair and am seeing the same problem developing though. But I love the shoes so much I'm not too worried about it!
