Offering a near-barefoot experience for runners who want to get connected to the road, the Merrell Road Glove 2 provides no cushioning and an extra-firm ride. 



Get in touch with the road with the Merrell Road Glove 2. This shoe is built with a zero drop platform and a thin midsole offering just enough underfoot protection from the ground to allow for unhindered proprioception. A breathable mesh upper offers a breathable and supportive fit with an open toebox to allow for the natural splaying of the toes, and a sticky rubber outsole provides excellent traction and durability.
