New Kicks: Merrell Trail Glove


I’ve wanted to try barefoot running for some time now. The FiveFingers from Vibram are too scary looking and my feet are too weird so those wouldn’t work. But I managed to find a good next level up with the Merrell Trail Glove. It still has the Vibram soles and is nice and lightweight so you get a similar barefoot experience.

My first run went pretty well. Didn’t go as far and long as I normally do (which isn’t a lot anyway) just to break these in gently as they warn you to. It went well although definite harder than typical running shoes but I think that’ll change over time.

Overall, they feel pretty good and the orange shade is a nice touch šŸ™‚
