Merrell Trail Glove 2 Reviews:


Great shoe, great design. I purchased these and the New Balance MT10v2 and I like these much better, in part because of better sizing. (See my review of the MT10v2 for more details.) I have a relatively narrow heel, but because of 1) the extra eyelet for a lace-lock loop and 2) the intersection of the heel reinforcement strip and the mid-foot plastic reinforcement, it was easy to really lock my heel down. The lacing works very well, in part thanks to the plastic/rubbery reinforcement lattice. Going downhill my toes weren't pushing into the front of the shoe. The because the heel and mid-foot areas hold the foot so well, the forefoot can be (and is) very roomy letting my forefoot and toes spread out. The mesh fabric seems tough (I've only put about 20 miles of jogging and fast hiking on them) and breathes very well. I can feel it when a breeze comes up. The forefoot plate (I'm told there is one there, didn't feel it) seems to protect well from pointy objects on the trail, and the heel padding seems to be adequate for protection as well. Lastly, the sole pattern seems to provide really good grip. Ascending and descending a very steep section of trail with loose, powdery dirt on top, I was able to keep my footing and descend with confidence. I haven't tried them in mud or smooth rock surfaces yet. Pros: Well sized. Excellent design for holding foot in shoe. Good protection from rocks. Light and breaths well. Spacious forefoot lets foot spread out. Cons: If you're running in really cold or wet/damp conditions, you might try a different shoe or use warmer socks. The laces are a bit short if you are using a lace-lock loop at the top. I'm currently in touch with Merrell about getting longer laces. (I want to get the same kind because they work so well.) Overall, I love this shoe and highly recommend it.

I had the first version of the Trail Gloves. I did everything in them, still do. Road running, trail running, plyo's, weight lifting, hiking, backpacking, overnight trips. They're the bomb. I don't know how Merrell managed to put solid tread on barefoot shoes... You don't feel like you're walking on tread, it is a very accurate barefoot experience.
I've done quite a bit of actual barefoot running. These remove the draw backs of barefoot running and leave you with all of the ideal. If you misstep and stub your toe, its not gonna keel you over anymore. Its gonna give you some grip and a bit of warmth. And of course its gonna dull the pain of stepping on roots and stones. Plus they're durable as all hell. I've been beating them to shit for a year now and they're still in great shape.
I could go on and on about these. But I won't. I'm not going to compare them to any other barefoot brand because they can't compete. The new version is as good or better than the previous. Plus they're vegan, so you can't go wrong there. An amazing shoe you can feel good about wearing.
Get this shoe and enjoy.

I have to clarify that I do not use this shoe for trail running.
I initially purchased this as a lightweight second pair of shoes for backpacking. I wear boots when hiking with a pack and wanted something super light to throw in for around camp and day hikes while out. It turns out that I love these shoes for everyday use and wear them almost everyday. They are super comfortable.
If you love the feeling of going barefoot; but, hate actually going barefoot... buy this shoe.
Very soft and flexible with enough of a sole and protection to keep rocks and other items from gouging your feet.
I recommend this shoe to everyone as a comfortable summer shoe or as a second shoe for backpacking. If you actually participate in minimalist trail running... you'll probably like this shoe even more.
Me 9.5 US. Shoe runs true to size. I usually wear 9.5 and sometimes 10. The 9.5 gives my foot ample room to relax and spread out.
I do wear with socks. Currently out of stock; but, if the DC Shy Guy No Show socks come back... buy the 5 pack and be happy.

These are great shoes. They really do fit like a glove. Their barefoot line feels like you are wearing moccasins. If you are going to do a lot of running on trails you might want to get the Road Glove which provides a better buffer between the rocks and your feet but I have both pairs and love them both.

Great shoes. I wear for workouts and it takes some time to get used to minimalist shoes but now I love them. Get asked a lot about them.

Great fit, very light while feet remain ventilated with the mesh design. Fit like a glove. My first pair! I am sold on these runners.
