Oh My Goodness! What a great pair of shoes. I bought mine 2 weeks ago and have worn them around the house for a couple of days and today went out for my 1st run in them. It was only a 30 minute run but I was already imagining myself using them when I do the Great North Run.
My trainer told me that barefoot shoes help maximise the muscle use in my ankles and legs and so when you work out, more muscles in the legs are used. I have been using my Merrells for about a month now and I am delighted with the results.
These are funky, comfortable shoes. They really give a sense of being in touch with the ground. Cool styling and color too.
350.8 miles since I bought them in early February. My first Marathon completed on Sunday in 3:54. I think that's all I need to say apart from I love my Trail Gloves!
