Trail Glove 5 Running Shoe

Merrell studied the foot in motion to engineer the Trail Glove 5 running shoe—a trail running and training shoe to enhance the foot's natural ability to stabilize your body during rapid changes in movement. This is accomplished through its Barefoot 2 construction that shapes the shoe to your foot and 0mm drop that allow the foot to splay naturally through each stride. A Hyperlock TPU heel counter delivers a secure hold while a TrailProtect rock plate guards against underfoot debris on the trail. Finally, Vibram TC5+ outsoles provide you with highly durable grip, stability, and slip-resistance across varied terrain.


  • Minimalist shoe with stability for trail running and training
  • 0mm drop reduces impact and encourages natural gait
  • Mesh and TPU upper delivers breathability and a secure fit
  • Hyperlock TPU heel counter provides a comfortably secure hold
  • M Select FRESH repels unwanted odors for fresh comfort
  • Constructed with an anatomical shape for natural feel
  • TrailProtect rock plate guards against underfoot debris
  • Vibram TC5+ offers highly durable grip across varying terrain

Sore feet love these shoes

I like these shoes so much I wear them everyday. After 2 foot surgeries I am comfortable in these shoes

Back for more

So comfy, not durable though and the fit of these are a little different than the last pair so not super consistent on that. I have to say though I keep coming back for another pair just because I love the way they feel. I more than trail run in them I walk, hike, run and work in these shoes. Maybe why they are wearing out so fast?

Very comfortable

I love these. They have great grip, and are very comfortable. I have a high arch and they provide support for it. They are a nice minimal shoe (I love that I can move my toes in these) but I still feel like I'm wearing something protective.

The most comfortable shoe I have ever owned! They are so light and comfortable! I wear them all day every day!

Nothing like barefoot shoes. Super stiff sole. Toe box is narrower than all other Merrell's I've owned (many), and the front trim further constrains the toes. They hurt my feet just trying them on. All but one pair of Merrells I've owned were good out of the box for long walks. I don't know why Merrell has stopped making the vapor gloves and bare access, but I will have to look for a new barefoot style shoe because these, and the other recent models by Merrell, suck. Way too expensive for uncomfortable, poorly fitting, and STIFF soled shoes.

New favorite

They are amazing shoes! They have a barefoot feel with some arch support. Have do plus minus 70 klm a week. With other trail shoes I was using I developed periformus syndrome. With the Merrill’s I have had no problems. I bought a back up pair in case Merrill decides to change these up.

Best shoes ever!

Love, Love, Love these shoes! I like my shoes to fit just right. I order a half size smaller with these. I had surgery on my right hip and knee. These shoes make it possible for me to feel the ground but be protected from sharp objects. They are well worth it!

Great walking shoes

This is a great walking shoe. I walk in multiple terrains, including sand, rocks, hills and occasionally encounter wet areas. These shoes easily handled all of these conditions, with no slippage. In addition, they do have arch support which is welcomed by me, who is someone with high arches.
