Product overview

Easy on the legs, Marrell’s Women’s Bare Access Arc 3 Trail Running Shoe is great for long trail running and other wide range of outdoor sporting activities.  The shoe has a 13.5mm stack height and 8mm cushion to prevent uncomfortable ground impact as you cruise through trails. It comes with a 0mm heel-to-toe drop that makes for unrivalled convenience and lets you get off to a great start running through trails of any sort. The structure glides with the legs gracefully and doesn’t coerce your feet to move with it when running. Merrell Women’s Bare Access Arc 3 Trail Running Shoe fits the legs perfectly and makes sure it doesn’t get any lighter than the footwear offers.

The structure also snugs up well on most users, leaving little to no discomfort. Frequent use will demand cleaning up, and thankfully, the Women’s Bare Access Arc 3 Trail Running Shoe can be washed with a machine, using cold water, gentle wash cycles and air drying.  With a delicately crafted mesh lining, its goodbyes to repugnant smells after a timeout kayaking or trail running. This is possible as the mesh lining comes with an M Select Fresh odour control. Vibram is virtually a buzzword for Merrell footwears and the Women’s Bare Access Arc 3 Trail Running Shoe is not an exception.

The training shoe’s Vibram sole not only gives good traction on surfaces but ensure firmness even on tricky surfaces. There’s surely little to fancy when a hiking shoe is heavy on the foot, adding more weight with every leap. The Women’s Bare Access ditches this caveat as it comes with a structure that’s excellently light on the feet and lets you traverse through trails effortlessly with a weight of 11oz.

Arch support may feel narrow or stiff, a caveat that may be related to getting a wrong shoe size. The footwear may also cause slight discomfort if you have flat feet which are sensitive to shoe arches. You’ll therefore be better with a decent evaluation of your choices and shoe size before buying a piece.

Getting a piece of the Women’s Bare Access Arc 3 Trail Running Shoe is not likely going to crash your wallet depending on your choice and specifications. Merrell products are giants in the footwear industry with this trailing shoe surely another amazing piece of footwear to try out on your next summer outdoors trip.
