Comments: Best barefoot shoe on the market. Had to buy 1/2 size smaller than the merrell road glove. Good on track runs and long runs (10-20mi). I logged 600 miles so far and believe they will go another 600. I run mainly on grass. Flexible, durable, comfortable, light weight, a true barefoot shoe.

Comments: Ditto to Henry on the sizing. I am 9.5 in most shoes, 9.0 in Merrell/Inov-8, and 8.5 in the Vapor Gloves. If you get the size right, they are the perfect "barefoot" shoes, more flexible and less clunky than Altra Adams or VFF KSOs, and more comfy than Inov-8 Bare-X 180s. The Vibram outsole on this model is (I believe) the best outsole out of all the models Merrell, VFF, and NB Minimus have to offer, and I'm a big fan of all of those lines.

Comments: There's plenty of info out there on this shoe, but here's a tip: in my experience, these run bigger than some other Merrell shoes. On my feet, an 11 in the Vapor Glove fits like an 11.5 in the Trail Glove and the Road Glove (version 1). While running, they feel like a well-worn Trail Glove where the EVA has collapsed, but without the lugs. Very minimal and super light.
