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 🙂
