Product Description

Your whole body benefits from an aligned, natural stride. This is the design philosophy behind the Merrell Barefoot Collection and the Women's Pace Glove Lace-Up Shoe. This lightweight shoe is meant to simulate walking barefoot: it encourages you to land at midfoot instead of on the heel, thereby promoting a more efficient gait and helping to reduce walking impact. An EVA midsole centers the heel at impact for stability and cushioning, and the EVA forefoot shock plate flexes as it protects your foot. The featherweight Vibram outsole delivers excellent traction, and the breathable microfiber / mesh upper helps keep feet dry and comfortable.

    Step 1: Read "Born to Run"

    Step 2: Begin the journey to reclaim your genetic rights to a barefoot existence.

    I spotted these shoes on one of the many barefoot running blogs and websites and couldn't wait to get a hold of them. I have slowly transitioned to barefoot running like so many thousands of others who were inspired by "Born to Run," and while I'm very far from becoming an shoeless Ultra Marathoner, I am a dedicated convert. Since retraining my feet and lower legs in my Vibram Five Fingers, the rest of the expensive outdoorsy cushioned shoes in my closet just feel terrible. My hope for these Merrell Pace Gloves is to have a shoe to wear when I'm not running that complements all of the benefit I have received from running in Vibram Five Fingers. Out of the box, these shoes are extremely light weight with the look and feel of a high quality Merrell product and I'm very happy with the look of the Chili Pepper color. I can definitely wear these as a casual shoe with a nicer outfit and feel great about the style. In slipping them on, the soles are very flexible and followed the point and flex of my foot and there are minimal seams on the inside. At first, they seemed long in the toes, which didn't make sense because I always wear a 7 1/2 in Merrells, but this is obviously on purpose. The width of the ball of my foot perfectly fit into the contours of the sole and the extra length allowed for spread of my toes within my stide -- this is very important and I am actually quite impressed with how well this was accomplished. I walked around the house and hopped on the treadmill for a few minutes and the shoes successfully encourange me to support my weight through the ball of my foot with a forefoot/midfoot strike. They were very comfortable while running and my toes still had room to spread without constriction. So far, these seem like an outstanding shoe!

    I am trying to work on my posture and balance and continue my yoga practice advancement, so I was very interested in the barefoot shoe. I just got them and I have to say they are awesome. They fit like a glove. I think maybe I got really lucky with sizing. I got them in chili pepper and they are the cutest little low profile shoes.

    I will update as I start running/wogging in them.

    Word of caution. I have very narrow feet and these hug like crazy. I would think if you have wide feet, these shoes would literally rub you the wrong way.

    So far out of the box.... love them!

    Update 6/28/2011: I still love these shoes. I would rather wear them instead on my slippers. A couple things I noticed. The color bleeds (chili pepper) the first sign of sweat i had pink socks. Second, if my feet swell even a little, they get uncomfortable. Otherwise, I love these shoes and get many compliments on them.

    I loved the look of these shoes until I took my first run. They seemed to fit my foot just fine but in about a minute my heels began to "burn" and when I returned home 15 minutes later because both heels were hurting, I found I had rubbed raw sores on the back of my heels. The back of this shoe has a "gathered" elastic section across the top of the heel section and that just ate the skin off my heels. Now both shoes have blood on the elastic portion so I certainly don't feel like I can return them, but I obviously won't be wearing them again. It seems to me that it is a design flaw to place a rough piece of gathered fabric at the heel where skin is tender. I usually love Merrell but this design seems poor. I can't recommend them.

    I'm writing this review because I thought it might help people out. Before I ordered mine (they just arrived today) I read several reviews here and elsewhere and more than one person commented that they wish they'd ordered a size larger or that they'd gotten a size larger in the store after trying them on. I've always worn a 6 with absolutely no fluctuation and it just didn't feel right to order a larger shoe so I took my chances and went with my regular size and I'm so glad I did. Yes, they are definitely snug, but not uncomfortably so. Since the line is "barefoot" I decided to check out the Merrell website to see if perhaps these were intended to be worn without socks, which would account for the downsizing. Lo and behold, in every photo of models wearing shoes in this style, they are all sock-less. I haven't actually read anything on the site yet as I haven't had time but it seems clear to me these were meant to be worn without socks. Just wanted to save people from ordering shoes that are too big and/or worn in a way that the designers did not intend.

    BTW I got mine in the chili pepper color and they are much more subtle shade than in the photo--much to my delight. So far so good I can't wait to really break them in. UPDATE: I went back and read a FAQ on their website and their official response to the sock question was that they are optional and they suggested lightweight running socks for people who want to wear them. In response to toe fit/sizing the recommended people order their true size and said sometimes they actually run big! Obviously, everyone's feet are different and people should do what they feel most comfortable doing but I think it defeats the purpose to wear socks when the overall goal is to go "barefoot". The company did say that socks might be preferred to control odor but that was it.
