I ordered my first pair of vapor gloves a little over a year ago and recently received my 2nd pair. Love these shoes. They weigh nothing, are very breathable, and have great toe room. They are as close to barefoot as you can get and still have some protection from pebbles, glass, etc. You do need to order a half size smaller than any other Merrell shoe. I hope they don't change this shoe but would like to see Merrell offer a similar shoe with some cushioning for those times you might want some. I have tried the Flux and the Road Glove but they cause foot pain when I run in them.
