I'm a professional Soldier in my early 40s with a bad back, and I used to HATE running, but I did it because it's my job. Shin splints, sore knees, and the worst of it: back spasms that would take me out for days at a time. These shoes made me run properly for my body. It took about two weeks, maybe a little less to condition my feet to running in them. VERY short runs, like 30 seconds of running, followed by several minutes of walking, to equal a mile of running. And a bit of ice after the run. Six weeks later, I can run four miles in about 35 minutes at a very comfortable pace and NOTHING hurts when I'm running, and NOTHING hurts when I'm done. No, that's not entirely accurate, these shoes make your calves work, and that's where I feel it, but it's a "good" ache, not a "I-just-broke-something" pain. These will not be the last Merrell's I buy!

OK, Merrell. Tell us. Were you or were you not trying to find a middle ground between the original Road Gloves and the Road Glove 2s? Whether you were or not, you succeeded. I love the tighter area around the arch of the foot, as well as the rise in the platform that gives a natural roll to a mid-foot strike. I just took these out of the box and walked around all day in them. I'm run in them on Sunday. I suspect these things will feel very fast. Maybe just a tad long in the toe box, but otherwise, great job!

I found a older pair of these on the clearance rack at shoe store. Reading that first sentence you would think "why five stars"? It seems some of the best things can be found on the clearance rack. I tried them on and that was it. No question I'm taking these home. Before these I never owned a pair Merrell's, now I planning buying my third pair very soon. They are super comfortable and lite weight. I can't wait to try the Road Glove 3s.

The Road Glove 3 is a great shoes as are all of Merrell shoes. They are very light weight and comfortable. You, almost, feel as though you do not have any shoes on. They are that comfortable. I am already looking at buying my next pair of shoes. Do not hesitate to purchase. You will not be disappointed. Thank you, Merrell!

Thank you for adding another excellent style to your Merrell collection! We are glad you love them and are able to wear these running as well as casually.

I use this production to walk around in. They are even comfortable and styleless and good looking enough to wear casually during the course of my day.

  • Question about arch support

Hey I've my Road Glove 2 and I love it for running but I'm not confortable walking because the arch support. I've been searching for a review but I didn't find any. Do Road Glove 3 correct this issue? Thank's!

Merrell's Reply:

Thank you for your concerns about this style. The Road Glove 3's are going to be built on a similar last (mold) as the 2's, so they will have that slight arch in them. A style that may suite you better is the Vapor Gloves, they are going to have less cushioning and are more of a glove-like covering.
