The shoe I like is the Trail Glove, but I decided to try these as they were new. I expected more than I got. From the description of the inner shoe you could think this was also suitable to wear without socks. It is not as the volume is too large. It cannot under any circumstances be considered as a "Glove Fitting". Back to the Trail Glove for me and use these for casual wear. I am quite disappointed with these and think Merrell could provide more accurate descriptions of their shoes.
