Even better than expected

Just received the vapour glove and they’re great! Love the space in the toe bed but they don’t look like duck feet. No arch support so if you need that, barefoot shoes aren’t for you. Also, I learned a while ago to order a half size larger than usual for Merrel brand and they fit perfectly. They’re comfy and let my foot move naturally. Very happy!

Poor quality, but comfortable while they last

Washed after their first muddy trail run and the lining came apart and the puffy ankle padding fell out of both shoes. Never had this issue with SIX pairs of vg3's...I'm really disappointed in the quality of this new style. Please return to making actual minimal trail gloves?

Poor quality, but comfortable while they last

I've worn out 6 pairs of Vapor Glove 3 and finally had to switch to a newer model. The 6 is slightly more bulky but still light and comfortable. The sole has much more grip than the 3's, which is nice. BUT - and they only come in very light or dark colors. After the first muddy run in my Oyster pair, I threw them in the wash and lining came apart and the ankle padding washed out. Now they are useless. Not even close to the build quality of older style :(

Nice shoes, not worn outside yet

Haven’t worn them outside yet. Feel super comfortable. Glad they are making colourful gloves again. The only reason I gave 4 star is because (a) had to pay shipping cost and (b) my previous pair the elastic shoelace broke rather quickly and they wouldn’t replace. So I’m hoping this won’t be the case with this pair. Love the colour.

Read "Born to Run" and then buy these! No Regrets!

Did a lot of research before making this purchase. Needed a barefoot style shoe for long distance running. I have very flat feet and struggle with shooting muscle pain on my dominant side after extended periods of time spent running. Based on running experts recommendations I began looking for a shoe that would instill the feel of barefoot running- which shifts an individual from pressing on their heel first (shooting foot pain) and trains the runner to push off with the front pad of their foot. Almost overnight the pain is gone- after 2 months I feel incredible. Can't wait to see how much it improves my form after 6 months to a year.

Love the Glove

Very minimalist but protects my feet when needed. They are not overly wide which is perfect for me and the toe box has plenty of room. I am quite happy with them.

Shoes don't breathe

I have discovered that these shoes cannot be worn without socks or they get smelly. They don't breath sufficiently to be a barefoot shoe and I am disappointed.

Loving the Vapor Glove 6!

I find the Vapor Glove 6 to be an excellent comfort shoe. I have Rheumatoid Arthritis in my toes, ankles, and the balls of my feet, this shoe enables me to grip solidly and to bend my feet to my capability with comfort in a spacious and versatile shoe, in all weather types. Love these shoes! This is my 3rd pair!
