Finally found a great trail shoe to replace a lightweight favorite of mine that was discontinued. I found the Ascend Glove at Woolrich Outlet Store in PA. We found the shoe to be lighter than described in the literature. It weighed in around 6.5 ounces(women's size 8). I wear an 8.5 most of the time, but had to go to a size 8. The shoe hugs the heel but gives your foot room for natural toe splay. With more support than the more minimal "gloves" and just enough cushion and rock stop protection for the sole, these shoes have everything you are looking for in a lightweight, semi-cushioned, minimalist trail shoe. I was so confident in the way they felt on my feet, that I wore them the next day in a 13.1 mile trail race and technical course, with lots of rocks. Trust me when I say, 'don't be afraid to try these winners'.

Reviewer: Minx618 from
I just bought these shoes in the pink and black. I tried them on and wore them for almost 20 minutes before deciding on these. I could already feel it in my legs and butt and it felt so much better. I was a little skeptical for awhile but I talked to my brother who has a pair and he won't get another type of shoe but these. I have high arches but so far my arches done hurt like they would in a normal pair of shoes. Wish me luck as I start my barefoot training. Thanks Merrell!! You have another happy customer!!

Reviewer: Wasabi from
This is my first barefoot shoe and love them. And yes, they took some getting used to but I really do feel like it has allowed me to run true to my body's natural form. I do have a couple of questions though ... these are trail shoes yet I use them for regular road running, is that okay? Secondly, typically the running shoe industry suggests that you trade out your running shoes every 300-400 miles, is that true for barefoot type of shoes as well? Thanks for a great product.

5 out of 5 stars Favorite Trail Running/Hiking Shoe 08/11/2013
Shoe Size: Fits true to size
Shoe Width: Fits true to width
Reviewer: ~Peaceful~Pulchritude~ from
I love this shoe, I wear it every day. I, like others before me, had the original Pace Glove which I absolutely adore but once I tried on the Ascend glove I noticed 3 major differences: 1. enormous toe box 2. wider platform on sole (flat not rounded at edges) 3. cupping feel on inside for your heel not to slide around. I have to say, I've been doing barefoot training for 2 years with my Pace Gloves and this shoe has more cushioning so you "feel less" if you step on rocks while running and its been great even just for strolling around on concrete for miles. I'm constantly on my feet and this is the most comfortable shoe I have. One thing I will say is that I tried wearing them without socks for a while and they smell kinda funky now so I only wear them WITH socks now. Other than that everything is positive! The Blue one is my favorite but I've seen the pink/gray one and it's actually really cool how the colors fade into each other but the Fuchsia one is just weird. It looks like either a faded purple or a pink that's too dark. I never have like fuchsia though so... Anyways, enjoy your new shoes!

Reviewer: lovetrails from
I've been waiting for this shoe!! Have been running in Merrells for almost 2 years and have always felt I needed something a little more rugged for technical trails...this does a great job! I'd love to see an even stronger rock plate at the forefoot, and even some bigger lugs for muddy trails; but overall it's a great shoe! Very happy to have Merrells back on the trails! Keep up the great work!!
