This shoe has makings of a great UL stream crossing / camp shoe but... First, R&D better be paying attention- I'm into ultra light backpacking. Most of us in UL are looking for a shoe that can be used to do stream crossings and also serve camp shoe duties. Sandals dont quite get it for protection, walmart water shoes fall off in rushing water, crocs are too heavy but have perfect camp shoe cushion. There are options such as Sockwa, sand socks, etc but all fall short in one or more aspects. My point here is nothing out there nails it. If you guys could make these puppies half the weight and maintain these features (listed below) you would be surprised how many folks would be beating down your door. Features: 1.) ability to stay securely on foot in whitewater and also provide stability 2.) shoes enough sole for traction (grip smooth river rock) and cushion enough to ease sharp edges of rocks on bottom and little of the sides 3.) comfortable and breathable for tender feet after long days of hiking 4.) retains no/minimal residual water weight after getting wet. dries fast 5.) weighs about 3-5 oz (size dependent) 6.) water drains through while using 7.) sizes up to 15 8.) since they won't be having lot of miles put on them they don't have to have as much durability in sole. You may think me crazy but I'm buying these and I'm gonna drill holes in them to lighten them up and maybe cut few sections out along side and melt the material so it doesn't fray. One can only dream....Necessity is the mother of invention

So far, less lateral wear I have run in a bunch of minimal shoes from Merrell and others, and have been a big fan of the Trail Gloves for a while. I have very wide feet, and as a result the sides of my feet would slop over the edges of the sole, leading to very rapid wear and shoe failure. The new Vapor Gloves add some rubber in just that spot, and so far (70 mi) they seem to be wearing well.

Comfy, but only for the narrow-footed Pluses: Light. comfy. Minuses: Of all the minimalist shoes I've owned, this is the one that makes my feet warmest. Also, Merrell promised that the width was generous... but it most certainly is not. If you normally wear an wide-size shoe as I do, this is gonna pinch.

more durable, less feel ive worn vapors 1&2 a lot, running, walking, being. the vapor 3 are cut slightly differently, theres now 'support' for the instep which results in a slight pressure on the arch. which i dont like. no where near as bad as the trail gloves however. sole feels bit more chunky, and will be more durable, but its taken me 2 years+ to wear down the vapor 2, so wasnt an issue. i have red ones and love the color. brand new so feel stiffer, i hope they turn into the floppy vapors ive always worn. still the best minimal range on the market. nothing comes close to vapor gloves.
