5 out of 5 stars Love the Shoe 09/16/2013
Shoe Size: Fits true to size
Shoe Width: Fits true to width
Reviewer: lwamp85 from
I have only worn them a few times so far but I absolutely love them so far. I have been wearing barefoot shoes for about five years now and I will continue to purchase this pair for as long as Merrell offers them. I owned the original road glove for over a year and was dissapointed to see them change the design. I see that 61% of people said the shoes were larger than expected. Barefoot shoes are typically a little larger than conventional running shoes in the toe region in order to allow the toes to spread and form a larger base while running or doing physical activity. This allows the runner to maintain a better running form and land on the balls of the feet rather than the heels. These shoes are a great barefoot shoe.

3 out of 5 stars Amazing shoe but horrible durability 08/14/2013
Shoe Size: Fits true to size
Shoe Width: Fits true to width
Reviewer: timothy.bramlett from
This shoe was possibly the best barefoot running shoe I have worn. The only problem is that it developed holes/tears in the upper lining of the shoes after only 4-5 months of sporadic wear. Would buy the shoe again if the durability issue was fixed.

5 out of 5 stars Vapor Glove is the best shoe ever! 08/07/2013
Shoe Size: Fits true to size
Shoe Width: Fits true to width
Reviewer: Abea8 from
I purchased the vapor glove for barefoot running. I do everything from sprinting to long distance to trail running and these shoes are my favorite shoes of all time. I like them more than the vibram toe shoes of which I own 4 pairs. I like them so much I purchase one more pair so that when one is getting washed I can use the other ones. I recently see that they only come in black and green/blue which is disappointing because I bought the red and orange ones and am looking forward to buying them again once these get worn out. I really hope they bring back the other colors. I tell my friends that if I live to be 300 years old and this company and shoe style is still available I will probable still be buying it :-)

2 out of 5 stars Far too narrow 08/02/2013
Shoe Size: Fits half size smaller
Shoe Width: Fits narrow
Reviewer: hiigaran from
I have been running barefoot for about 4 years now. I have always had wide feet. In fact, because of wearing too-narrow shoes growing up, I have toes that are deformed. Running in huaraches and completely barefoot helped them begin to straighten out. Unfortunately most gyms don't appreciate people lifting weights in "sandals" or socks. I bought the Vapor Gloves because of how light they were and because of people rating them high for build quality and durability. Well, they meet my expectations on those two fronts. Unfortunately they are way, way, way too narrow. The toe box feels like somebody's hand squeezing my toes together. There is absolutely no way I could ever run in these shoes. To anybody who can, congratulations, you must be normal-to-narrow-footed. To anybody with wide feet (or extremely wide feet) you'd do better with another shoe.

5 out of 5 stars Everything I Needed 08/01/2013
Shoe Size: Fits full size larger
Shoe Width: Fits true to width
Reviewer: RUNNINGman from
A I was searching for the perfect barefoot running shoe I had an idea of what I wanted the shoe to be like. I wanted a shoe that was lightweight, low to the ground, breathable, flexible, and a shoe that had a wide to box. This shoe was exactly what I wanted and the fact that it only cost $80.00 was amazing. I wear this shoe everywhere I go not just for running.
