Merrell Shoes: Men's Barefoot J06527 Run Bare Access 3 Running Shoes
The ancient Greeks sure weren’t wearing padded footwear at the first Olympics, and lately a lot of runners have been assessing the merits of running barefoot. For those of you who’d like to dip your toes into the proverbial pond of barefoot running, let these Merrell Men's Barefoot Run Bare Access 3 J06527 Running Shoes warm up the water for you. With these, you can experience the desired zero-drop, flat-foot stride while still having some protection between your feet and the ground.
The uppers of these Merrell shoes are made with a combination of breathable mesh and thermoplastic polyurethane, or TPU. The mesh is treated with M Select Fresh Odor Control, and TPU is fungus-resistant, keeping your sweaty feet smelling sweet. TPU is strong and long-lasting, featuring superior resistance to abrasion and tear. Also, the strong material of these Barefoot Run shoes is highly flexible over a wide range of temperatures. Inside these black shoes you’ll find a protective toe cap, giving you the unique combination of the feel of barefoot running while still protecting your toes from rocks and debris.
The light-weight EVA midsole offers cushioning that doesn’t compromise the flexibility of these running shoes. Combined with the Vibram Rubber outsole’s shock-reducing quality, you have the most cushioning possible without losing the barefoot-feel. The outsole of these Access 3 shoes is even made without lugs on the arch, giving your feet the most natural flex possible. The reflective details give you increased visibility, which is a key safety feature for any runner.
If you want to feel close to Mother Earth on your run, Bare Access 3 running shoes not only give you the feel of running barefoot, but are made with Vegan-friendly materials. Want to take care of your body and our animal friends? Merrell understands, and we at WPS think the Barefoot Run Bare Access 3 J06527 Men's Odor-Resistant Shoes are just the footwear for you.
