Comments about Womens Merrell Bare Access Arc Running Shoe:
I have been anxiously waiting to read reviews of these shoes by other runners, so am writing my own asap. I was hoping these would fit like the Merrell Pace Glove, which I love, but add additional protection in the sole of shoe for longer road runs. Unfortunately this is not so. These do not hug my foot nearly as well as the pace gloves-they feel like a soft loose bedroom slipper. As far as the additional sole, I can't really tell if it is any better than the pace glove. The pace glove's full vibram sole actually feels better underneath my feet as it is slightly stiffer and firm on the road. The Access Arch sole feels softer to me. A bummer is that after only two 4 mile runs the non-vibram part of the sole right behind my midfoot is starting to chafe off. I had high expectations for these shoes that they did not live up to. Perhaps runners looking for a real barefoot feel will like these as they truly do feel like a soft slipper upper with a bit under foot for protection.
