I made the switch to Minimalist style footwear nearly two years ago, and I cannot go back to standard style shoes ever again. I have more agility, flexibility, and feel better overall after wearing such shoes. I work as a pool operator and often walk 4-6 miles a day on all sorts of terrain: sand, di... Read More

    First time for this type of shoe and I'm a convert. There is just enough padding in the sole to make these a good all purpose shoe. They are light weight and fit like a glove.

    First, I really want to like these shoes, just as I really wanted to like the original Trail Gloves. Like the originals, these are well-made, and I think they will stand up to some heavy trail miles. But just like the originals, they fall a little short of being a perfect trail shoe for me.

    - Traction. This was a major weak point in the originals, and these are better. They're still not a good mud shoe, but they are better.
    - Cushion/protection. If you see that as a good thing, these have more, while still being zero drop.

    - Cushion/protection. The downside of the extra build-up is a loss of feel for the trail.
    - Fit. These fit larger than the Trail Gloves, and they don't cinch up around your insole as nicely as the originals.

    Even though these are not my ideal trail shoes, they are a solid product that will last well and that will perform well on good trail conditions, and at this price you probably can't go wrong with them.

    Nice pair of running shoes, but they have a seam under your big toe, If I don't get used to them soon I'm sending them back.

About Merrell

The story of Merrell boots all started with a guy named Randy Merrell, who began handcrafting leather hiking boots back in 1981, shortly after graduating from industrial shoemaking school. By the mid-80s, Randy’s boots had already gained critical acclaim before being named “best boots in the world” by Backpacker Magazine. The next decade saw the arrival of new footwear, including the ever-popular Jungle Moc, which helped launch the after-sport category. Today, Merrell hiking boots, running shoes and sneakers are still among the best on the market, always combining the newest technology, innovative designs and outstanding comfort. Whether you hike, run, walk or just appreciate high-quality shoes and boots, we’re confident that you’ll love Merrell shoes.
