Not that I noticed. 

When Merrell first came out with minimal shoes, I was disappointed because I found them all to be too narrow and I couldn't wear them.  I've steered clear from Merrell shoes since than.   My wife bought me a pair that were on sale years ago and I never wear them because they are narrow and not comfortable. 

The All Out Drift boots are the first shoes by Merrell that I've tried on in a long time.  I didn't notice the width so perhaps that's an indication that they are a bit wider than their "glove" line of shoes.  They were certainly wide enough for my feet and often that is not the case.  The few seconds I got to run in them, my toes were able to splay naturally and the boot felt secure but not tight.

I've been looking for a back up pair of Crazy Horse brown ones. They are on "the bay" auction site almost weekly.  I have auto-notification set up that as soon as a pair are listed, I get an email...  Unfortunately, they have been selling for $240.00+... Shocked

Are they a narrow fit, like many Merrell shoes?

I started running with the couch to 5K program, theres a few different routes into it and apps for it, and wore VFF from the off. Takes about 8 weeks to do.

Didn't have any problems but then I wasn't transitioning from regular running shoes, plus I was already wearing a pair of vivobarefoot and am barefoot anytime I possibly can be anyway.

I've been looking for a pair of minimalist boots to wear snowshoeing this winter.  I tried these on yesterday and and smiled when I opened the box to see a picture of a barefoot and a description of how you should take plenty of time to get adjusted to these minimal boots.  It felt like opening a box of VFF or VivoBF shoes.

I put them on and was immediately impressed with the fit and flexibility of the boot.  I ran up and down the shoe aisle a couple of times and felt like I could comfortable run in these.  Given that they have a waterproof membrane and cost around $160, I'm going to give these a shot for sure.  The 4 mm drop and wide toe box seems like they would make a great alternative to traditional waterproof boots.

If 1.5 miles kills you, and the 5k is in 4 weeks, there simply isn't enough time. And pushing to be ready in that short a time will most likely result in injury. Normal shoes for this 5k, and slowly up the distance in your Vibrams.

Also, you say you did no running, does that mean you slapped on a pair of Vibrams and IMMEDIATELY attempted 1.5 miles? That's asking for problems!

I can't see them on the UK Merrell site.

I actually found some in my size about this time last year. I didn't like their looseness round the shins it felt weird to me. As I had paid nearly full price (about 180), I sent them back for a full refund.

How hard are these to find? Desperately looking for some but think I'd have more chance of finding a real life unicorn! Anyone have any suggestions for where i can find some? Found some at site but think it's bogus by the reviews. Any ideas anyone?! Thanks.

Has anyone tried these on? The description on the Merrell website includes the word "minimalist", but I have a hard time believing it while looking that the pictures. I'd love any insights as they aren't carried by any of my local stores.
