    From someone who is not into wearing shoes, these Trail Gloves are really great. Plenty of toe-room, and super lightweight, yet durable. I live at the beach and these shoes are the answer to my prayers. I prefer being barefoot, and do so most of the time, but Social Norms dictate footwear in public places. I slip into my 'Gloves' and it's like I'm wearing a tougher outer skin on my feet. I liked my first pair so much that I bought two more! Good job, Merrell !

    decided to get back into trail running recently and found these on stp. other reviews said they ran too short. having owned many pairs of merrells over the years, i went for my typical size. definitely short for a typical fit. after some reading, you don't want the extra room in the barefoot shoes. after taking these for a spin, they are great. very comfortable. so light weight and minimal you hardly know you have shoes on. seem to offer adequate protection.

    Very light and very minimalist pair of shoes. I love that they feel like a tight pair of slippers. I'm a huge fan of Merrell's and these did not disappoint in any way.

    Very comfortable, but not suitable for very long walks on pavement for a big man.

    I was eager to get these shoes for Cross Fit training, with short runs and weightlifting. In general, I like the style and would like the shoes a lot if they fit. The problem is very strange-they fit perfectly, and snugly, in the heels and arch, were slightly long in the medial foot by my big toes, but my little toes actually hit the front slightly. What is bizarre is that there appears to be a large amount of fabric on top of the front part of the shoe, stretching from the lateral aspect of the mid foot to the medial aspect of the forefoot, which bunches into a ridge when the shoe is tightened. I am a 13 mens, and typically have not problem with a medium width. I realize that these shoes are supposed to have a big toe box, but this was ridiculous with the ridge making them look like clown shoes. I am returning these shoes. I went to a Merrell outlet store and tried on multiple versions of these shoes in various sizes and all size 13 had this problem and all 12 were too small. The clerk said that the Trail glove has this problem for people with narrower, but not completely narrow, feet. I ended up choosing a different pair of Merrell barefoot shoes, the Road Glove. These shoes does not have this problem and I love them.

    Very nice shoe. Ultra light and comfortable but runs a little small.

    This is my 6th pair of Merrells, but first "Barefoot" style. I wear them with socks (sorry barefoot people) and they feel great. Size perfect as usual! They are very light! You can feel the contact with the ground very well, but the stability is good! The grip is amazing, can't wait to test them on a trail! I hope the Vibram sole will last for at least 3 years!!! I got black/red colors and they are very stylish! Got complimented on them right away!

    The first pair I had seemed to shrink after getting wet. The other two pair havent had that problem but have stayed drier. I'm not a big runner, but I've used them for streets, trails, and a tough mudder without a single blister. I love the wide toe box and the ventilation. Sand and dirt will get in easily but so with a breeze.

    This is my second pair of these shoes. I switched to barefoot shoes 1 1/2 years ago and I love them. I had been on the verge of having to get orthotics (had an appointment already set) but decided to give minimalist shoes a try first. Good decision! I no longer have pain from a neuroma I had dealt with for years (used to have to wear a metatarsal pad) and the Taylor's bunions that were starting up are all but gone (no pain and hardly a bump anymore). My first pair has lots of wear left but when I saw these at a good price, and a different color, I had to get them.

    nice looking and like a slipper for all terrain. I am not sure if the barefoot design is the best approach for feet, but this seems to be really good for the type of shoe it is.
