    Comments about Mens Merrell Road Glove Running Shoe:

    I've been breaking into this shoe for about 3 weeks now. Best pro is that, I have horribly flat feet and normally wear an orthopedic insert to help prevent shin splints, these guys have such a high built in arch that I have no need for my inserts. However, I chose the normal width and in hindsight I should have gone with the wider width. It isn't too bad, bud it would make the fit perfect with the wider version. I'll go with that when these wear out. But so far, I love to run in these. Minimalus shoes are the way to go.

        Comments about Mens Merrell Road Glove Running Shoe:

        The shoe was a great fit. It had some growing pains for the first two weeks. I run in them sockless and I have to keep putting vaseline on certain areas on my foot to keep the skin healthy. I had some pretty bad sores on my achilles tendon, top of my toes, and interior arch at first. Its not a big deal to put vaseline on before I go out. Its a good trade-off because the shoes feel sort of weird in normal socks.

        Also, you may read on the internet that the arch support is really high/molded strange and it bothers people. If you find the right size, it should go right in to place with your arch and you wont even notice it. I bought the shoe a 1/2 size bigger and I felt the arch being more forward, so I returned it and dropped down to my normal shoe size (10.5) and it was right where it should be. If you ask me now, I wouldn't even know it was there.

        Im 71 miles in and over 1 month of wearing them, so I felt it was appropriate to write a review up.

          Comments about Mens Merrell Road Glove Running Shoe:

          I have been running in minimalist shoes for more than a year, including trail running in Merrell Trail Gloves, but have been very cautious about trying barefoot type shoes on the road, primarily because I am a larger runner (210 lbs). I've now worn these running on the road and for a 6 mile beach run. These shoes will force you to watch your form, but that is the point of going to more minimalist or barefoot style shoes. The toe box isn't as wide as I would like, but feels better than the Trail Glove toe box. I also like the lacing system on the Road Glove better than the lacing system on the Trail Glove.
