Most Helpful 5-Star Review

I have been using these shoes for a couple of years for running. As they are a 0-rise shoe, I use a minimalist (barefoot running) type of stride to which I had to initially and gradually adjust in order to get up to the higher mileage (4-5 miles for me). I started out in Vibram 5 Fingers and will ... Read More

    I bought these for use at crossfit, they work great for deadlifts, front & back squats, also running short distances.

    Had these less than a month. I use these just for walking about, not running. I'm not a runner. I like the minimalist sole, but need to put my orthotics in these shoes to have them correct my foot's tendency to collapse inward. So not sure how much I've gained. But they seem to be made well. A leather version might be nice for walking.

    This is my fourth pair of the Merrell Glove series. I like the sole on these first generation Trail Gloves better than the second so I'll keep buying them until they are no longer available. I think it's funny that someone commented that the concept of barefoot shoes is a manufacturer's excuse for no cushioning. Well, duh, that's kind of the demand of minimalist/barefoot runners. If you heel-strike and want to continue to heel-strike, these are not your shoes.

    I owned a pair of the VFF several years ago and couldn't get past the faddish, goofy looks. I ditched them as soon as I found a better alternative for someone like myself that wants a little protection from the elements for a forefoot strike. These shoes have a very comfortable wide toe box so there is no need to purchase a size bigger like many running shoe stores recommend. These shoes are true to fit.

    If you plan on doing rugged trail runs, I wouldn't recommend these either. Look into a minimalist shoe like the Brooks PureGrit that will give you a little cushion from coarse or uneven surfaces such as rooted or gravel trails.

    In summary,

    -You hate the look and style of VFFs
    -You're already a barefoot runner

    -You're a heel-striker
    -Need cushioning for coarse trail conditions
    -Are interested in transitioning to barefoot running (you'll want a "minimalist" shoe to transition first)

    This is my third pair. No they don't have any support in them.....over time your feet become very strong!

    I purchased 3 pairs of this shoe when they first came out. I finally wore one pair out and ordered a replacement pair. The new version was Trail glove 2. I can only say, if you loved the original version of this shoe ( as I did), you will hate the Trail glove 2 version. It is stiff and anything but a glove. Iawas lucky enough to find some of the original Trail glove shoes online and purchased them.
