5 out of 5 stars Recently Switched To The Road Glove 2 09/12/2013
Shoe Size: Fits half size larger
Shoe Width: Fits true to width
Reviewer: jjc03 from
I started with the Trail Gloves in July of 2012 and put a lot of miles one them. This year I decided to run a 1/2 marathon and also felt the need to switch to a shoe designed more for paved surfaces. I decided on the Road Glove 2. Typically I wear a size 9, but in the Trail Gloves I wear a size 8.5, so I felt safe ordering the Road Gloves in 8.5 as well. When I got them I was surprised as to how wide the toe box is and that I could not wear them sockless. I tried wearing socks while running in them and hated it, so I decided to buy another pair but went down to a size 8. Size 8 was perfect and I wear them sockless when I run. Another major difference between the Trails and Roads is the Road Gloves have somewhat of an arch, but when I run I can't even tell it is there. Great fit and feel. I love them. I now use the size 8.5 Road Gloves as everyday shoes and my 8's for running. Check them out and you will not be disappointed.

Reviewer: Riefa from
I have the first version of this shoe, and it fits perfectly with my feet from the first time I try it at the store. Been using this shoe for several months for 5K or 10K run feels great.

1 out of 5 stars Not what I expected 08/15/2013
Shoe Size: Fits half size larger
Shoe Width: Fits true to width
Reviewer: Brian from
I absolutely love the original Road Glove, I had a running store fit me for 8.5 size and they fit me like a glove. The Road Glove 2 shoe is so much different, way oversized, the inside has a terrible change to the lacing structure that now gouges the top of my foot. I happened to find some clearance original Road Gloves online and bought 2 pairs, I hope Merrell rectifies future versions.

4 out of 5 stars Great Shoe Except for One Thing 07/28/2013
Shoe Size: Fits true to size
Shoe Width: Fits true to width
Reviewer: jnorman.nyc from
I had the first generation of this shoe and fell in love with it. I just ordered the new version. It is the same great shoe and has a little more grip than the previous generation. However, the plastic striping on the side of the shoe is definitely noticeable when you run. The stripes hit up against your two small toes. Other than that issue, it's a great shoe.

2 out of 5 stars Road Glove 2 07/08/2013
Shoe Size: Fits half size larger
Shoe Width: Fits true to width
Reviewer: Tito from
I definitely like the original Road Gloves feels. I was really happy when I bought the second version. The new design looks awesome compared to the ugly RG1. Walking around the store was not enough to notice some things. The sole protect my foot from the rocks, but it also feel too thick. The upper shoe feels uncomfortable and the arch feels to high. Even walking makes my foot sore. I wish I can return them but I bought them on a road trip and the store is too far from home. Also the yellow inner sole looks dirty easier than the black inner sole. It is sad that I have a new pair of running shoes that I looked forward to use, but they are not what I expected.
