If the glove fits.
When taking an early morning trail run through the desert, you want a lightweight, breathable shoe that still offers protection against pieces of cholla and prickly pear that may be lurking in your path. Merrell's Men's Trail Glove 4 Shoe offers a barefoot feel that maintains rugged sole protection against the sharp surprises of the Southwest. Minimalist construction and a gloved fit make your feet feel practically barefoot as you weave your way through saguaros and creosote, but you'll be able to keep your eyes on the sunrise instead of the sharp rocks.

I bought these as an all around running/training shoe. And so far, I'm loving them. They fit just life a glove and allow me to feel every thing below my feet. The tread is great, haven't slipped and ever step is stable. Highly recommend for those looking for a minimalist running shoe.
