Closeouts. Who says your style has to suffer when you wear earth-connecting minimalist shoes? Merrell's Wonder Glove shoes feature a cute, Mary-Jane-style appeal with a superlight, Merrell Barefoot design for the best of both worlds.

Very cute shoe to help transition to barefoot running! Looks great with a skirt and I will be wearing them to work. I was concerned that they would slip with the elastic in the back however they don't move at all once on. I only gave them a four because my feet are hot in them even on cooler days.

Comfortable and stylish! Looks good with capris. The toe box seems wide enough for my somewhat narrow feet to spread, as any good minimalist shoe should do. The toe profile is very rounded, and so for me there is some contact with the end of my middle toe (a slightly squared profile fits my feet just a bit better). When I securely push back into the heel cup my toe doesn't run up against the end of the shoe.
The heel seems a little wide (loose) for my correct size. A woman's last should have a narrower heel, and the heel does not need room to spread, so I'm not sure what the designer was thinking there. The strap over the instep keeps the shoe on, to make up for the excessive width.
Overall I like the shoe and look forward to wearing it all day. My size ran out before I could order a 2nd pair in another color.
