My favorite shoe
I love these shoes. Ive been wearing them nonstop for the last 8 months, for everything from going to the grocery store to 10 mile trail runs. Given how much I wear them, they have held together really well (just now seeing a couple of small holes in the mesh and recently tore the right heel loop).
I would consider these a minimalist shoe, but the sole is too stiff for them to be truly barefoot (compared to e.g., Vibram 5 Fingers, but the sole does soften with time). The plus side of that is that they are MUCH nicer to wear on rocky trails. And they look normal enough that I can wear them to work.
On grass or sidewalk I usually run barefoot or with Vibrams. The Trail Glove's my favorite for everything else - winter or rocky runs, at work, playing soccer, etc.
