Merrell Barefoot Line Update

A little bird (OK, a big bird) told me that these are indeed going to be zero-drop. 

Given the disappointment in this department we've suffered from Inov-8 and New Balance, I'll withhold judgement until I've got the new Merrells in my hot little hands, but I'm very excited.  Merrell makes great shoes, IMHO, that fit me well and work well.  This should be a home-run product for them.


  1. Okay, I can't wait.. I love my Merrells, but they kill my feet right now..

  2. From the pre-release pictures I've seen I have a hard time believing they're going to be zero drop.....the pictures make them look pretty similar to the Minimus.

  3. I've seen more pictures that I'll be posting shortly, and they look zero drop.

    The bird also wore the Minimus. He's a pretty reliable bird, IMHO.
