|Merrell have a longstanding reputation for making excellent outdoor leisure shoes. They are substantial US brand so it is remarkable and admirable that they are the first truly big player to add barefoot shoes to their range.
The Merrell Glove range shoes have received high praise from early reviews because they are not a cautious attempt to produce a transitional shoe that makes exaggerated claims to be a barefoot shoe.
The Glove range are full on serious barefoot shoes with zero heel differential and minimal sole cushioning.
Whilst the range started with the Trail Glove, Merrell have expanded the range considerably to suit a wide range of users. In particular the Road Glove is designed to optimise use barefoot running on flat hard surfaces. The Current Glove is another specialised barefoot shoe designed for use in water.
