Merrell Trail Glove Cross-Training Shoes - Men'sis rated4.6923out of5by26.
Rated5out of5byfromAwesome almost barefootedness -As an occasional five finger wearer i have been eyeballing the trail gloves for some time, wish i bought them sooner! They are fantastic, a little more protection than the five fingers, little thicker sole, love running rough terrain in these - grip well, hold up well so far, comfortable, lots of room for the toes. Great minimalist type shoe - no complaints from me...

Rated4out of5byfromGreat shoeI'm now in my 2nd pair of these. I worn the 1st ones right off my feet which took a long time and a lot of miles. I run in them both trail and road and they are a regular in my running shoe line up. They are great sock less. I use them with a set of elastic laces for a slip on fit. I understand these have been discontinued in favor of a next generation which I will try out out when I finally kill this pair

Rated5out of5byfromMy Second Pair!!!This is my second pair of these babies. True work-horse merrell's. My first pair took down 2.5 years of trail running, backpacking and climbing 14er's before the soles finally wore out(and this was probably caused by any road running I did). Break in quickly, stylish, very comfortable and they build your legs' muscles in a proper manner. All shoes should be shaped like this, its natural! Only wish: The had a hard plate for tougher, rockier terrain.(Running downhill on rocky trails, Moab slabs)- Wearing socks will save some impact shock on roads, tough trails.

Rated5out of5byfromGreat minimalist shoe!I have several pairs of minimalist shoes, and this quickly became a favorite. The soles are flexible yet rugged, the uppers breathe well, and the laces do a great job of cinching down and hanging on. I've worn them for field and office work and just around as a casual shoe and I have no complaints.

Rated5out of5byfromBackpacking essentialI'm a serious backpacker, and originally purchased these to use for stream crossings and around camp, but have found them to be so comfortable that they have become my day hiking staple. You have to play with the lacing a bit to get them on, and I think that is why some have complained about them being "too tight". They have a wide toe box and once laced up, they are extremely comfortable. I typically wear an 11.5, and found that a 11.5 with these is perfect for me. The vibram soles are great for durability, and because they weigh virtually nothing and dry relatively quickly, they are an essential part of my backpacking gear. I have a slightly wide foot and have had an assortment of foot related issues over the years, but these are the most comfortable thing I have ever worn while out in the mountains. I typically wear socks and use green sole inserts (for a little additional padding), and have never had any type of foot discomfort hiking on/off trail, regardless of the terrain. These are great for crossing streams when the water is too deep for your boots. As soon as I get camp established, I park my boots and wear these the rest of the day. Paid full price for my original pair, but when they went on closeout, I decided that I needed to pick up a couple more (assuming my originals will eventually wear out). I also bought them for my adult kids to use when they accompany me on backpack trips. If you are a serious backpacker where weight and utility are critical elements in choosing your gear, I highly recommend you consider these (while they are still available). You won't regret it.

Rated5out of5byfromAwesome shoes!These shoes are great. I have a pair of the vibram five fingers, but I enjoy this style much better. Lightweight and extremely comfortable.

Rated5out of5byfromGreat runnersVery comfortable, I wear these without socks. They seem to wrap around your foot and feel great. Lightest shoe I have ever had.

Rated4out of5byfromWearing Around the HouseI bought these as a lightweight option to wear around the house. They feel great on my feet. I realize that with no support they wouldn't be great for all day asphalt-pounding, but around the house or a hike around the woods they're great.
