Ditchiewrote a review of Merrell Trail Glove Shoe - Men's on January 20, 2012
Give these babies a try and never look back. They will change the way you run and give you stronger feet, a much healthier gait and maybe even cure your fasciatis (sp?) - worked for me. PLus you really will feel more connected to the earth - seriously!
You must get used to them at first and your calves will ache but it goes away. I cannot run in my old Asics anymore. Old shoes are like running in a mushy cloud - these are so much better.
The true gloves rule too but these are better for wider feet or if you prefer more toe-box freedom.
Wear can be an issue as they are quite thin, but I am pretty easy on shoes and mine lasted me a whole season. Well worth it!
