I love Merrell shoes and own like 5 pair, including two pair of the Bare Access 2. ALL of my other Merrell shoes are size 12. I need a waterproof trail running shoe, and when I saw these I jumped on the great price. Sadly the 12 is WAY too tight in the Mix Master shoe. I tried these on, my feet hurt immediately, I took them off and returned them.

The shoe itself is really high quality and very sharp looking (although the other reviewer is correct -- the "black" does not match the picture. Just google it, it's black with a greenish-yellow accent). If you know that a certain size *in this type of shoe* fits, by all means buy it. But I'm really disappointed since a 12 in one type of Merrell shoe doesn't mean that a 12 in another type will fit. Fine, the Mix Master isn't "barefoot" (it's "minimal"), but the Bare Access 2 isn't exactly "barefoot" either -- it's "transitional" or whatever. But I expected the 12 to fit reasonably similarly in the two types of shoe. But it's not even close. The toebox in these shoes is extremely constricting. Why does it have to be like this? The same brand, the same size, totally different fit. BAH! Now I'm back at square one, searching for a waterproof trail running shoe. I'm tempted to buy a size 13 in these, but I don't want to risk it.

It's hard to assign stars to this shoe, since it's an awesome shoe in a way (like every Merrell shoe I've owned). But I guess 2 stars off for not translating shoe size between types.

Did its job of keeping the snow out of my socks, and providing enough grip to be able to run. A bit on the heavy side, as I am used to light and flexible running shoes. I run with a forefoot strike, and at around 4 miles it starts giving me hot spots.

I use these shoes for bartending at a busy outdoor nightclub. They are fairly comfortable, but not as comfortable as other shoes I have purchased for work. The major downfall of these shoes is that they don't seem to be completely waterproof. When the conditions are really wet, my feet are soaked by the end of the night. Decent for the price, and they look cool, but I wouldn't buy these again for bartending.

I really get use out of these shoes and I am somewhat hard on shoes. They have held up great, are comfortable, and are an aid to exercise.

Needed a lightweight, waterproof shoes to take neighborhood hikes. This foots the bill. Prefer the glove line from Merrell better.

I just bought these shoes and love them. My feet have bothered me a lot in the past but haven't at all with these shoes.
