Most comfortable running shoe I have ever owned

Reviewed by Tim from Michigan on Saturday, March 30, 2013
I purchased the Road Gloves about a year ago after spending some time in a pair of Nike Air shoes. I had some concerns about the minimalist construction but I tried on the Merrells and they fit like ... well, gloves. From my first run in these shoes, I knew I had found something special. You can imagine my disappointment when I left my favorite shoes on the locker room floor at the gym. Evidently, the guy who found them wears a 9-1/2 because the shoes never made it to the lost-and-found.

When I got online to search for the Road Glove, I of course found that it had been replaced. While I'm the new model is comparable, I could not find a color that I liked. My wife suggested I try Sierra Trading Post. Lo and behold! There they were, in the same color and size! But the big bonus was I got them for half the price of my original pair.

I am a short-distance runner -- a long run for me is anything over 2 miles. So I can't speak to the benefits of minimalist shoes for you crazy marathon people. However, I can tell you these Road Gloves are among the comfortable shoes I haver ever owned -- that goes for ALL shoes, whether that be dress shoes, athletic shoes, casual shoes. I have had absolutely no pain in my feet or legs after my runs. I am now investigating the entire Barefoot line to see if there is something I can wear at work.

For this sale price, I honestly don't think you can find a better deal on a running shoe.
