New to barefoot

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Peg-leg Pete from Virginia on Tuesday, June 19, 2012
Been looking to get back into more serious running and have followed the barefoot movement for a while now. After trying various brands/models at local B&M stores, Merrell was the way to go for me and I was was very excited that STP started carrying the Trail Gloves. They're lightweight, flexible and comfortable. I also have low arches and these allow for minor adjustments to get a good fit. They run true to size and have a roomy toe box. Though it's a little loose in the heel for me, I don't expect it to be a problem. No clue how these will hold up in the long-term, but they feel well made. For the price, these are definitely worth a try.
