    Like a glove.

    Running barefoot gets old pretty fast when the ground is rocky and rough, but Merrell's Trail Glove 3 Men's Trail Running Shoe gives you the sensitivity and flexibility of a bare foot with lightweight cushioning to keep your feet from getting bashed to smithereens. It weighs just seven ounces per shoe, but still sports a supportive EVA midsole and impact-reducing TrailProtect footbed that let you feel the terrain underfoot. The flexible but grippy Vibram rubber sole gives you confidence on tough ground, and the zero-drop design encourages a natural, smooth, and repeatable stride. Best of all, the Trail Glove is treated with M-Select Fresh, which prevents microbes from growing and causing your shoes to smell like that dairy farm you just ran past.

    Fits Like a Glove

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 12

    These are my go-to casual and light hiking shoe. The fit is spot-on, with the back 3/4 of the shoe comfortably hugging your foot while the toe box allows ample room for that "barefoot" feel. The large amount of mesh in the forefoot also makes the shoe very breathable.

    Good shoe for lots of uses

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 11.5

    Bought these because I needed a solid workout/ running shoe. Wore New Balance Minimus for years before switching to the Trail Glove, and the change in drop took some getting used to but didn't pose any problems. A properly fitted pair should fit your foot like - well, a glove. Any extra space in the toe box could lead to blisters if you decide to take them out for a run.

    I am by no means one of those minimalist shoe junkies who swear that this kind of footwear will correct your posture, extend your life expectancy, and fix the government. However, the versatility of this shoe really does add to its appeal. They weigh next to nothing, pack up small, dry quickly, and grip lots of different surfaces quite well. I just recently wore mine at a music festival which involved four straight days of standing for hours and hours at a time, and often came out of it complaining less than my friends. A very good shoe, and durable. I will definitely be buying a new pair when mine wear out.

    right shoe wrong color

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size

    Shoes are great. Love Merrell glove series. Fit true to size. The goat shipped the wrong color and returns look to be a hassle.

    Different Uses

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size

    I don't use this shoe as a trail running shoe, although I'm sure it's fantastic for that. I use this shoe as a water shoe/adventure shoe. This is what I wear canyoneering/hiking (if I know there will be water)/cliff jumping/anything that's back and forth from water to land. I LOVE these shoes. I would recommend them to anybody.

    Ruined a good shoe

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    Merrel took what could have been a good minimalist shoe and put an arch in it. WTF merrell? Please stop putting arch support into your minimalist shoes. Arch support is a myth. Anyone using minimalist shoes understands this.

    Hell Yea

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size

    I'm really digging these shoes. I do a pretty good job mixing up my terrain between road, gravel, and single track, and these shoes do well on all of them. The lugs are a good size to grip on steep downhills but not too aggressive that you can feel them with every step. The fit is tight around the mid-foot with a wide toe box which is mega comfy - no slippage here. I'm also a fan of the slightly thicker sole/rock plate - much more enjoyable on gravel than my Bare Access pair. However, any more than 10 miles on nothing but gravel still leaves my feet a little sore. The only less-than-positive experience I've had with the Trail Glove was at the Zion Ragnar. It rained the majority of the time, turning the trail into a soupy clay that literally sucked the tightly tied shoe right off my foot mid stride. The real problem was the lack of traction in the unusually slick conditions... I could literally surf down the steep sections like sliding down a snow covered sidewalk. But I really can't hold it against them as I seemed to fair better than most - I think the only way to get traction in those conditions would be with an extremely aggressive La Sportiva or Solomon (...or football cleats).

    Long story short, the Trail Glove rocks.
