    I did wear thin socks and could still feel small rocks and twigs under my feet.

    I have gotten back into running the past 6 months or so after being a near-sedentary couch potato through college (I was reprehensibly lazy). Because I live in New Orleans, the places where I jog/run are full of broken bits and boulders of concrete, tree roots coming up from the sidewalk, and rocks. It might seem counterintuitive to trade a padded, protective shoe for a minimal shoe in such an environment, but after a couple sprained ankles due to tree roots and lack of foot to brain input, I figured it would be easier running barefoot. That said, tetanus from urban ground debris just wasn't an option, so I chose the next best thing: these shoes!

    I can feel what's underfoot and my feet can bend over obstacles without balancing on them as with a traditional running shoe. When transitioning to these shoes (I just went cold turkey), you will notice soreness in muscles you didn't even realize you had. However, the pain I can only attribute to my persistent heel striking in traditional shoes is now gone. I had horrible, and I mean horrible shin splints, and they are also completely gone. I do have some muscle soreness, but that's mostly just me being pretty out of shape, and it's a "good" pain, not a pain that I would attribute to an injury, or a pain I can't train through. It goes away with a hot bath.

    Overall, this is a great, fun-looking, lightweight, cool shoe. I can feel the air on my feet when I run which is a far cry from my old damp/hot, overpadded trainers. Ditch the padding! This shoe forces you to change your biomechanics back to what nature intended: a shorter stride, faster cadence, upright posture, and springy landing on the forefoot. This minimizes injuries by keeping you in tune with your body and the ground.

    Bonuses: 1. the fabric has a really cool reptilian feel to it.
    2. The styling is adorable.
    3. THE COLORS! DOUBLE RAINBOW ALL THE WAY ACROSS THE SKY! IT'S SO BEAUTIFUL!

    Love everything about this shoe except the pink...wish they would make one that is just black. But, with regard to the actual shoe, it is great. For those of you used to wearing any of Merrell's other "barefoot" shoes...this is MUCH more minimalist. So, be warned. If you are like me, then this is a good thing. You can feel everything underfoot, every pebble on the sidewalk, etc. but they provide enough protection if you watch where you are going and have a good midfoot strike. Yet to try them on the trail, but I assume they will probably work fine. Only purchase these if you truly want a barefoot feeling while running, because that is what these are. There is no support in the shoe at all. It is very breathable, I can feel the air through the shoe when I am running.

    Anyway, personally, I love this shoe - If it came in just black I would order three more pair, for every day wear, golf, hiking, running, everything.

    the seam around the laces on the inner part of the shoe was very rough and jagged. so rough is made my foot bleed on the first run i use them. I did like how lightweight they were and the toe box was awesome!

    First, let me say I am not a beginner minimalist shoe runner - transitioned with the Free 3.0 for a couple of years and been running for the last year in Vivo barefoot.

    Likes
    -Great toe box (that is what drew me to them)
    -Super light
    -Stylish

    Dislikes
    -Narrow footbed (I have average width ladies feet. I would recommend getting the mens, but I haven't seen them in a men's 6)
    -I can't figure out why, but these gave my first injury in a long time, an Achilles irritation, so I have gone back to the vivos for a while
    -I could not wear these without socks. The insole is rough and the seam along the sides of the narrow footbed is monstrous. The shoes tore up the bottoms of my feet.

    Now I must say, I'm new to the barefoot shoe trend. But after spending days researching and reviewing every piece of evidence I could find on them I took the chance and bought them. I have had them for about 3 weeks now and I'm amazed at the comfort. I have always been that one person who walks around the house and yard barefoot so the transition wasn't bad at all. I love feeling connected with the earth and these shoes do just that! They let my foot flex so naturally and are not constricting at all. I read the reviews about the seem on the inside for the laces and tongue rubbing and being a little rough but I honestly didn't notice it at all. These shoes are just so amazing I cant find enough good things to say about them. Comfort is amazing. Breathability is amazing. Flexibility is amazing. And the benefits to your body are off the charts. My feet and legs feel so much stronger already. The sizing is pretty much spot on too. If you struggle with back pain, knee problems, or weak ankles, stop spending money on thick soled shoes, foot doctors, chiropractors, and shoe inserts and try these out. You will not be disappointed. I personally bought these shoes to help me get motivated to start working out and getting back in shape and they have done that for me. I feel stronger and more connected with my body's natural movement and rhythm. And they have corrected my sore lower back and knees. They force my body to move naturally and land center footed so my legs will cushion the blow Of every stride I take. The science and mechanical aspects behind these shoes are worth the read. These shoes have done wonders for me and I think anyone second guessing these shoes should just take the chance and give them a try. You won't go back.
