I do not write reviews very often but when I do I chose the Vapor Gloves. I have been wearing barefoot shoes for 3 years now and have gone barefoot for a year. I first order a pair as soon as these puppies came out. These shoes are the closet thing to barefoot without being barefoot. I wear these shoes every day and have not once regretted buying them. I hike in them, run, walk, bike and much more. The Vapor Glove is a well built shoe but there is an aspect I would change (very small aspect). The fabric on the toe box is quite thin and will rip if you are not careful but with this said I am not saying to watch your every step but because I wear these shoes consistently they have ripped. This is just due to wear and tear. I love the Vapor Gloves and I am extremely stoked to buy a new pair in the upcoming future. Also the Orange is BAD-ASS!!!!! Good job Merrell, I would give this ten stars but Merrell only does it to five.
