Now that the roads are clear from another 10 inches of snow here in Massachusetts, I decided to go out for my first run in my new Merrell Pace Gloves. Was supposed to be an easy 5 miler - ended up being much faster because I felt so great! The Pace Gloves are the BEST shoes I’ve ever run in and I’m not just saying that…they felt tons better than even my VFF Bikilas (see my shoe history below). I have somewhat wide feet (not excessively so) and between the Injinji socks and the wide toe box of the Pace Gloves, my feet were in heaven! My toes were free to splay as much as they wanted with no excess movement. The sole is just thick enough to keep my feet warm and provide traction (for those times I was in the snow/slush) but not so thick that I lost the ground feel. I think as the sole breaks in a little that will improve even more so. They are breathable, but felt warm and comfy in 33 degrees (a heat wave!) I’m SO glad I got them! Shoe history (in chronological order since I first started running 2 years ago): Asaics (a variety of styles), Nike Lunar Glide, Mizuno Wave Rider, Saucony Kinvara, Nike Free 3.0, Saucony ProGrid A4, VFF Bikila.
