I think Merrell makes a wonderful product and while some may think them pricey, I am happy to pay for such good quality.

It's been a month since I got these and I want to order another pair, just to have them on hand for when these wear out.

I started the coach to 5k program to get myself out there and running again. It' s been 25 years since I actually ran, that is not to say that I haven't exercised, just haven't run. So I started out with a pair of Nike running shoes, spent a lot of $$$ on them and still felt weighed down and just didn't feel I was running right because of my shoes. I read an article on barefoot running shoes did some research and found these merrells. Truly they were worth every cent. First they are super light, they practically weigh nothing. Your foot feels naturally comfortable the moment you put them on. Now for usage, for me there was no breaking in period, they were perfect right out of the box. True to size. I am a 9 and ordered a 9 and the fit was spot on. My warm up after a stretch is a 5 minute brisk walk, this ismwhere my nikes started hurting. Not so with these shoes! Wow, i felt very springy and really wanted to get into the running portion of my program. To me my run felt lighter, I was able to keep a good pace whereas before, I had to keep adjusting because the shoes just were not helping. Because, i was able to pace myself, I was able to endure longer and even go a little faster ( I am in no way a fast runner - not at all). When I say endure I mean I felt like I could have gone even longer with the run. It's been a month since I got these and I want to order another pair, just to have them on hand for when these wear out. For me they are perfect. I even got my daughter and husband to buy a pair. My husband has problems with just about every shoe he buys ... These not one complaint ... He loves them. Ditto for my daughter who now started running too.

This is my first pair of barefoot shoes and so far I am hooked. My feet, specifically my arches, are very sore in the mornings when I get up. Someone suggested I try these shoes and when in days I have noticed a difference. They are very comfortable and it feels like u are wearing slippers. I would definitely get a half size bigger. I am a solid 9 and had to return my initial pair for a 9.5.

I wear these every day; I'm on my feet most of the day as I am a massage therapist. Love these shoes! They are light weight and comfortable but beware you need to order at least a half size larger than normal. I ended up giving my first 2 pair that were a half size larger, to my daughter and actually ordered a whole size larger (7.5 normally and wearing 8.5) because I wear socks and my feet tend to swell after 6 straight hours of standing. They are just what I needed! Even my chiropractor approves of them. After wearing these for a month I tried to wear my favorite Ecco's and found they are not my favorites any more.

I have wide toes & narrow heels (duck feet) so I wear a lot of clogs - Merrell clogs -because everything else rubs my heels raw. I saw these in a store, but not in my size, so I ordered them from Amazon. Even as a Merrell lover, I really didn't believe I could wear them without socks. Surprise! I wore them a whole day, walking quite a bit. And another day. And another. Not even red spots on my heels. And my toes are very happy with so much space. I'm not a runner, but I walk a lot. I need to order another color.

I am amazed at how great these shoes are, especially since I ordered them sight-unseen through Amazon. I was tired of rotating through different shoes depending on where I had blisters/sores on my feet - one rubbed my toes, one my heel, etc. These are perfectly comfortable straight out of the box, socks not required. I did notice different muscles in my legs being used (especially the backs of my thighs), but no soreness in my feet. I already spend most of my time barefoot (while inside at home), so this may be why I didn't need time for my feet to adjust to these new minimalist shoes. I ordered a half-size up, as I do with all running shoes to account for foot swelling, and these fit perfectly.

Love these sneakers. I used to never wear sneakers because I hated the heavy clunky feel of them so I tried these out. Perfect! I walk and run in them.

Not so "barefoot" that you get bruises from running on the road, but "barefoot" enough to get the benefit of the free form movement.

This is the second pair of these I've bought. They are thin enough to feel the ground but thick enough to endure long runs. They are incredibly light and the upper is breathable. Most importantly, unlike most running shoes that try to jam your toes together, merrells have wide toe boxes to let you spread your toes out and actually use them to run.

These shoes are so comfortable, I wear them for everyday use as well as running, and when they start to smell funky, I douse them in alcohol and throw them in the washing machine. Yes, they're machine washable.
