Tony wrote a review of Merrell True Glove Shoe - Men's on April 20, 2011
So to be honest, I am one of those humans with a reputation for destroying footwear so keep that in mind as you read this review (this is also the reason I purchased the True Glove rather than the Trail. Trail looks better, the True is tougher). By the end of my first trail run (city creek, Ut) the mesh on the left side had looked like I had been doing kick flips in them. When running up any incline with loose you will be getting twice the work out from the lack of traction. Although going down, for what ever reason, you will be king, I can pretty much (bare foot) sprint down a trail. I ran up Delicate Arch in them and the killed it on the slick rock. I have had them for a month now and the mesh tear has not advanced. Over all I am pleased but would recommend if you want them to last (given the price you should) stick to light flat trails: Liberty park oval, lower city creek, etc. hope this helps.
