In terms of feel, the closest comparison I can make is that the Trail Glove feels a lot like the Vibram Trek Sport http://www.domoreso.fr underfoot. The sole is similar in terms Nike Roshe Run Mujer of ground feel permitted, which is not as much as the Vibram KSO, but far more than a typical running shoe. They also solve one problem I have with the Trek Sport – fit is better. I find that Vibrams can sometimes be tricky in terms of sizing because of the toe pockets. My KSO’s are a tad large, and the Trek Sports are a tad snug – I think I’d probably be best in a size 41.5, but Vibram doesn’t make half sizes. Merrell overcomes this problem since the lack of individual toe pockets allows for a bit more leeway in terms of sizing.I find the Trail Glove to be very comfortable out on the road. On a few of my initial runs I felt a strange kind of cramping sensation in the arch on my right foot, which scared me at first, but it doesn’t seem to have re-occurred on my more recent runs. I suspect it Nike Air Max 95 Femme may have been just an adjustment to Nike Air Max 270 Mujer the shoe, but will pay close attention going forward. I’ve done a few 7-8 mile runs in them without issue, and suspect that they will be a regular part of my rotation going forward.Conclusion: For those wishing to go full-time into an ultraminimal shoe, the Trail Glove would be an excellent choice. If full-time ultraminimal running is not your thing, the Merrell Trail Glove is a great choice for form work and/or strengthening as an alternative to the Vibrams. Perhaps most importantly, because they lack the toes of the VFFs, fitting should be easier in the Merrell Barefoot shoes, and they will appeal as a more conservative zero-drop option for those not fond of the Fivefingers’ funky looks (which I personally still like). Merrell is also doing a nice job educating customers about how to run Nike Air Max 90 Hombre Negro in a barefoot-style shoe, and I highly Nike Air Max 720 Femme recommend that you visit Merrell’s barefoot education site. All in all, the Merrell Trail Glove is a great shoe.You review confirms my suspicion – the Trail Gloves I purchased must have a defect in the right foot. The right shoe has a really pronounced area of raised stitching around the inside arch which in ~ 3 miles rubbed a hole in my skin (far beyond a blister!). Additionally, the left and right shoes feel very very different – the left shoe feels awesome while the right shoe HURTS to wear and my right knee hurts after wearing them. Something about the way the shoe was constructed must be off.As for durability, the lining fell apart on the first run (middle section of the shoe) and there is a good bit of piling on the fabric around my achilles tendon. Note Nike Air Max 90 Femme that I have been running almost Adidas Superstar Homme exclusively in VFF KSOs for about a year and have had nothing but rave things to say (other than that they are COLD to run in – one of the reasons the Trail Glove sounded so good!)I really (!) wanted to love these shoes and at $116 it took two months to stash enough disposable cash to justify buying them. If both shoes felt like the left shoe I would be a happy camper. As things stand I have $116 shoes that cause physical pain.Thanks for the quick reply. I didn’t really mind the arch on the Trail Glove. What I felt was a kind of squeezing sensation on the widest parts of my foot – on both the medial and lateral sides. For me, those promininces are pretty pronounced (bony looking feet). On the shoe, it is right were there is a little black part that curves up and around the ball of the foot. It Adidas Superstar Dam kind of felt as if my foot was http://www.jamlikhalsavast.se being cupped, like with the Nike Zoom Waffle XC, but not as extreme. I could only run up and down the aisles at REI, but it was enough to think that it might get worse on an actual run.They also had the True Glove in black/red. The pics on-line do not do them justice. That’s a good looking shoe in person.My real quandry is whether to buy the Merrells at all. I’m in Chicago, so I really don’t run trails more than once or twice a year. I am pretty much restricted to pavement, crushed granite paths, and grass. Some have said that the Merrells make for good road shoes as well, but I am thinking the Hattori might be a better choice (oh, if I could only justify buying both with my wife).
