I had some merrell trail glove and the heel would bury into my foot and bothered me. This was about 2 years ago when I got those but luckily I got them from REI and was able to return them. I think the generation after those they got much better and the heel was softer. For this price it is a great deal. I thought $50 for the trail gloves was great.
was researching these shoes when purchasing the vibram bikila deal a few weeks ago. although i like my vibrams, a lot, if this deal was live back then i prolly woulda purchased these instead as my first foray into the whole minimalist movement. heard nothing but great things about merrells and these look sick.
fyi, i am not a runner so i wear these primarily for working out and around the house.
These Merrell's are my favorite minimalist shoe I've tried. They run a tiny bit small on me, I usually wear 10.5 and wear 10 in these. They are super durable and overall good quality.
If you start running in them, start off at a lower mileage, maybe a half mile or 1 mile. And try to land on the balls of your feet as you run rather than heel. You'll be really sore in weird places if you haven't run in minimalist shoes before. Feels great though.
Awesome price, I bought mine for $80 and haven't seen them on sale too often.
I am concern about size I usually wears 10 for running and trainers and 10.5 for few dress shoes.
How does this shoe size are, should I go with 10 or 10.5?
Though I am an avid runner but I run one or two times on concrete pavements unlike on muddy or dirt trails and mostly on the treadmills.
Given that how long this last, after reading quite a few comments I found the major complain is about the flimsy mesh upper of this shoe, some people comment that their sole stays like new but the upper mesh gone bad which overall counted as bad quality shoe because if one of the two things doesn't long last then its not good quality.
Since you own a pair I am asking these questions.
