    The REI Member Dividend

    The REI dividend is a unique benefit of membership in the REI co-op. It's comprised of your member refund—typically 10% back on eligible purchases—and/or your REI Visa® card rebates.

    Each March, active REI members and REI Visa cardholders who earned a rebate receive a refund in the form of an annual dividend notice.

    Only active members receive annual dividend notices. To maintain your active status as an REI member, you need to make net merchandise or shipping purchases of at least $10 per year, unless you joined that year. Member numbers are issued in one name and only that person receives the member refund. Your number can be used by others in your family, but it cannot be transferred to someone else.

    Merrell Vapor Glove Road-Running Shoes - Women's is rated 4.25 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best yet :) I've had the Merrell pace glove and dash glove for about a year now, and I wear a 6.5 in each. For the vapor, a 6 fit better. Super soft inside, very comfortable. I did not want to take them off, even to walk around my apt. These have a very flexible sole, and great groundfeel. So far I've used them for crossfit and some road running, and I like them much better than the pace and dash gloves, even though both of those also get 5 stars in my book.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from So far, quality shoe; 2nd choice Overall, I think that this is a great shoe. I bought these as a replacement for my Vivo Barefoot Neo shoes (since they have unfortunately changed the design...)to wear on shorter training runs and for kettlebell/HIIT classes. I generally wear between a 9-9.5 (40-41), and I wear a size 9 in these. I have not had them long enough to tell about the durability of the mesh, but here are some things I like/don't like about the shoe: Like: -Barefoot feel; they feel so similar to my Vivo Barefoot shoes but with a much more stable fit that makes them great for the more dynamic moves in hiit. A great feel when running, too. -Ventilation: the mesh is amazing for ventilation. Living in the southwest, feet can become quite hot and disgusting in no time. The mesh breathes wonderfully and it keeps my feet nice and cool. -Wide Toe Box: I have a rather wide foot, and the selling point for even trying out these shoes was the wide toe box. I have to really try to reach the edges, and so it is incredibly comfortable when running. My foot actually gets to splay like it should. Dislike: -Narrow in the arch/midfoot-- even more so than the New Balance Minimus Zeroes. The heel and toe box fit fine, but the arch area is so narrow that my foot "spills" over the edge Overall it's a great shoe so far, and for the price (sale or not), I'm happy to have found what I hope will be a good replacement for my Vivobarefoots--as long as they are durable!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best minimalist shoes on the market This is as good as it gets in the minimalist market without having to buy toe shoes, huarache sandals or moccasins. I've been running barefoot/minimalist for 4 years and I've tried them all. These are anti-microbial and lightweight. As true to minimalist without causing blisters. I love these shoes and want to buy 10 pairs just in case Merrell ever discontinue the line. They are fantastic for road running, spinning, gym, outdoor boot camp, basketball, tennis, you name it.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice shoe, but too little cushioning Looked appealing from the description, but once they arrived and I tried them on, it felt like an injury waiting to happen. I returned them.
