I bought these under the assumption they would be similar to a pair of Merrell Trail Gloves that I have worn through over the last year. Boy, was I wrong. They are very stiff and have a very dense and heavy sole to them. When I walk on any hard surface it sounds like a horse trotting around.. Also, the toe box feels way more narrow. Definitely not the minimalist feel I was hoping for.

These are some of the most comfortable shoes I have ever owned. They have a relatively narrow midsole but a wide toe box, so the shoe provides good support though the arch but leaves plenty of room for toes to move. I bought them to try out as CrossFit shoes, and have now purchased three pair so I can wear them whenever.

I normally wear a 10, and these fit pretty well. They're a little narrow in the toe box, but I have a fairly wide foot. They definitely took 5-6 days to break in. They are fairly stiff, I had some rubbing on my instep and on my Achilles tendon. But after 6 trips to the gym they've become really comfortable. So much so that I'm tempted to buy another pair to use as a casual shoe.

I got these to replace my trail gloves as a gym shoe. I have found there not as aired out as the trail gloves or as flexiable. I have found them to be good running shoes with a little more support than my trail gloves had.

Exactly as the name says- these are true glove. My absolute favorite workout shoe, hard to imagine anything more minimalist next to bare feet. I wear a 10 usually, but found the 9.5 more to my liking with no binding or toe space issues. Switched the lacing style from traditional to adding a runners hitch and the fit was more custom and to my liking. Strangely, I needed a couple days "break in" due to how they fit across my achille's tendon, but after that- perfect. Current favorite shoe for everything. Truly a glove-like fit.
