Get closer to the road with the Merrell Road Glove Dash 3, a zero drop option featuring minimal cushioning and a firm ride.



The Merrell Road Glove Dash 3 brings a natural running experience onto the roads. Built on a low profile, zero drop platform to encourage a more foreword footstrike, this shoe allows for excellent proprioception while maintaining just enough protection from the hard ground below. An anatomical fit provides room for your toes to splay, while a Vibram outsole underneath provides lasting durability.

Customer Reviews

Comments: I really like these shoes. I will run distances up to 15 miles in them and would like to venture farther but need to tweak my stride to minimize calf exhaustion (my fault, not the shoes). They are very lightweight and comfortable, true to size and roomy in the toe box. I also have the Merrell Vapor Glove which I totally love too. Those have zero cushion and are perfect for shorter runs up to 8 miles for me. These Road a Gloves have just a touch of cushion to make longer distances more comfortable. Ideally I would like to run my marathons in Merrell's barefoot style shoes but I need to build up to it. I'm always happy with Merrell's construction quality.
