Barely there.

The next closest thing to the Merrell Men's Bare Access Flex Knit Shoe would be running barefoot. This ultralight runner sports a zero drop with minimal cushioning to provide the utmost adaptability, agility, and ground connection. Its cushioning, code-named FlexConnect, provides three millimeters of dual-directional-flex-grooved EVA for soft stability that doesn't interfere with the shoe's overall flexibility. The one-piece, 3D knit upper feels remarkably breathable and well-ventilated, and Merrell's HyperLock heel counter to secure your heel for a solid fit.
