Sonic Glove Review

Trail Run is an online publication dedicated to all things trail running. Its a great read and its free, so why not check it out at www.trailrunmag.com
The good guys at Trail Run tested out the Merrell Sonic Glove recently and have put together a pretty comprehensive review, here is just a little bit of it:

"A minimalist shoe needs to tick certain boxes. It has to have minimal and preferably no drop between heel and forefoot. This gives true barefoot function and in the trail world the best trail ‘feel’ – something of the point of going minimal. It needs a wide toe box to allow toe splay, important in achieving a correct barefoot running action. The upper should be minimalist in terms of it interfering with foot action, but it also need to provide some glove-like hold to the foot. Many will also say that the inner needs to be so comfortable that no socks are required. And finally, it needs to be lightweight.
 
The Sonic ticks all these boxes. Easily"
