I have taken up trail running of late. I'd been tackling some light off-roading in my Road Gloves, but those had to step aside as I've begun running on some rockier and slicker terrain. After reading lots of reviews, I decided on the Mix Master 2's. They fit great, give my toes lots of room, and have a very lightweight and responsive feel. They're surprisingly agile and comfortable on pavement and so far have done a great job (over about 30 total miles so far) reducing the impact of small rocks under the forefeet. I'm already a midfoot runner, and these shoes promote that natural form. I prefer a 0mm drop, but that small difference, while slightly noticeable on pavement, disappears entirely on the uneven surfaces of trail running. And, I found these shoes for half the price of some 0mm options! :) My one small problem is this...the cosmetic "stripes" along the side of the shoe, which are either sewn or glued on, run down around the inside of the arch of the foot. It's barely noticeable with the cushioned insoles, but of course I prefer running without the cushioned insoles for better ground feel and less of a drop (several reviews have said the insole adds about 2mm to the drop of the shoe). With that insole removed, the "stripe" digs into the arch of my foot and becomes pretty uncomfortable after about 3 miles. It's much more of a problem on pavement...on trails there's plenty of other things that dig into my feet. I would still recommend this shoe to anyone looking for a lightweight trail runner. Most people probably will leave the insole alone and not notice the problem. I also only notice it on my right foot, so maybe it has to do with the shape of my foot. At any rate, I'd recommend that Merrell consider redesigning the cosmetic details to stay away from the arches of the foot. But I'm still a Merrell loyalist :)

Reviewer: NHR from
I've been running in Trail Gloves for about 2 years. I was looking for a new shoe that was more appropriate for more demanding trails. The Trail Gloves are excellent on pavement and well-kept trails but lose traction on wet rock, mud, grass, leaves, etc. The MM2 I had to buy a half size larger than my TG to keep my small toe from rubbing on the toe cap. I've done a couple of runs and have given the shoes every chance I can but I just don't like them. They have too much cushion, too much drop, and just feel overly clumsy on any terrain. I can't run for any real distance in them before I get bizarre pains in my foot and calves. The shoes are well made, comfortable, and very grippy but they are so far removed from the other minimalist shoes that I simply can't run in them. They are much closer to a traditional running shoe than a minimalist shoe. I'll keep them for light hiking and yardwork but my search for a grippy trail-worthy minimalist shoe continues.

Reviewer: Riefa from
I use Mix Master 2 shoe for a longer run above 10K. I also have the Road Glove if I only plan to run no more than 10K. This Mix Master 2 is really a great shoe! All Merrells shoes I own has forced me to run with a better form! Thank you ;) I just purchased Mix Master Move & Flux Glove, and I'm pretty sure that those shoe will perform just as good as my previous Merrell shoes!

Reviewer: johrn0 from
the mixmaster2 has totally changed my running.I used to think more cushioning was the answer to sore knees. I now land midfoot with my feet under my center of gravity with a slight forward lean from my anckles with no more knee trouble.Iwent from a pegasus to the mixmaster overnight. Im not ready to go more minimal yet. The best shoe ive ever owned. Joe Horn KCMO>

Reviewer: ThaMessenjah from
I'll be honest. My purchase of my new Mix Master 2's came with some great hesitation. I am, and probably will be forever, a HUGE fan of the NB MT101's. I have 2 pairs with over 1500 miles each on them. Since they were discontinued I found myself in search of something similar and nothing compared...until I found out about the Mix Master 2. The fit is amazing and incredibly similar to the 101's. The night I got them I put 10 miles on them on the treadmill. The next morning (less than 10 hours later) I put another 10 on them. They performed very well on the treadmill, but I knew that the true test was going to come on the trails. This is where these shoes exceeded my expectations. I took them out for a run in a torrential downpour this morning on the single track and they were MARVELOUS!!! Traction was good. They shed water incredibly. No movement whatsoever. I think this will be my new go to shoe. Great job!!!!
