Master of mixing cush with performance.
The minimalist Merrell Men's Mix Master Move 2 Running Shoe handles a wide variety of trails with a combo of cushioning and ground connection. Made mostly of mesh, the Mix Master's upper is highly ventilated for breathable comfort in warmer weather. Merrell also added TPU reinforcements and synthetic leather to keep the upper durable for many seasons. M-Select Fresh helps the mesh lining resist odor for long-lasting freshness.
Underfoot, the Mix Master Move 2 features Merrell's MBound midsole for immediate feedback on all sorts of terrain. Merrell also added a removable footbed for easy cleaning, and Merrell's Air Cushion gives the heel extra cush without the weight. This shoe also features a protective toe cap for rocks and the M-Select Grip sole that lives up to its name.

What a rockin shoe!
I have gone through 3 pairs of these over the last few years and I still keep the old ones in my closet for kicking around. I did a full year of training in them leading up to my first 50 mile run in the Marin Headlands and then got a new pair for the race. These have a nice light feel to them and they have plenty of room in the toe box.
I use to work for Fleet Feet sports and I had the opportunity to try and run in every shoe out there and these have become my got to shoe for hiking, running, and kicking around. (every foots different)
Great shoe. My goto shoe for general use
This is a fantastically comfortable, light, breathable, versatile shoe. Running, walking, hiking all great. Look good with jeans out on the town. Dry quickly if they get wet. Low stack height -- close to barefoot but with more cushioning than other barefoot shoes including other Merrells. I have quite a few pairs of running shoes and these are the ones I always return to. The only downside is that the soles do seem to wear a tad more quickly than the average running shoe.
One star for only light weight. Fall apart after 4 months of wearing around the city. After first two weeks I noticed already first signs of cheap material on soles. Wasted money. Moving back to La Sportivas!
