These zero-drop running shoes let you feel the freedom of full-foot connection, with bonus cushioning for comfort on hard surfaces and long distances.


While the best part of anything is debatable, the Merrell Men's Bare Access 4 Running Shoe's best feature is clear--a nearly naked feel that still protects you from the sole-splitting rubble that lines your running routes. Merrell accomplished this with a 0mm drop, MBound midsole, and integrated EVA insole. This minimally-minded shoe keeps fresh air flowing over your toes while the rugged Vibram outsole stands guard against shards of concrete and bits of broken beer bottles as you log your morning miles before heading into work. Mesh and TPU keep the upper hugging you foot without suffocating your little piggies. The M-Select Fresh-treated mesh lining manages moisture while minimizing the inevitable onset of stinky shoe syndrome, and reflective details add a shot of visibility during early morning and late evening runs. The 0mm-drop profile keeps your digits and heel on a level playing field to emphasis your midfoot strike and encourage a natural running motion.
