trail glove 01: day one
These are the coolest shoes. Here are just a few of reason I like them:
 I love to hike barefooted, and these shoes are the closest thing to barefooted that I have found.
 They fit like a glove, but not tight. They fit snuggly against my feet, with no slippage.
 They are extremely light weight at 6.2 ounces.
 They are extremely flexible. I can twist them into a ball.
 The mesh upper is breathable. It feels like air-conditioning as I'm running the trail.
 The shoes are zero-drop [same thickness at the toes as at the heel], so I feel like I'm running barefooted.
 The Vibram soles flex and bend with my feet. I can feel the trail beneath them. It cushions the rocks, roots and other obstacles, but I still feel a connection with the trail.
 The are easy to get on and off.
 No socks required.
 They look like shoes... not awkward or weird!
Merrell, you did good!
