I used to be an avid runner, competing in half marathons and smaller races. Then, I developed ITB Syndrome, and for years struggled to find other forms of exercise that I liked just as much as running. I couldn't run 15 minutes without my knee hurting. I tried multiple forms of strength training, from physical therapy to various exercise classes. Nothing seemed to work for the long term. Then, I read up on minimalist/zero drop shoes and learned they can potentially help people with ITBS. After going to Road Runner and having my feet analyzed, I learned I was a great candidate for the minimalist shoe. I bought the Merrell's and could not be happier! My knee pain is gone. It's been a slow transition, where I run only a couple times a week for about a mile because my calves and achilles are sore. But, my aches are gone, and my legs just need to get used to the "minimalist/zero drop" shoe. I'm very pleased!
Not just for running!
I bought these as a casual, street shoe, but they would probably be fine for someone wanting a minimalist running shoe. They are extremely comfortable and I really like the supportive arch. Another bonus is they look nice and somehow don't make my large size 10 feet look so large!

I would buy this shoe again.
I walk around 20,000 steps everyday and these feel great on my feet.
Not an improvement for Merrell
So uncomfortable, I returned it. Very disappointed after owning Bare Access one and two. No cushioning. Very stiff heel.
