Terrrible Durability I got 2.5 months out of these shoes before the sidewall ripped on both. Totally useless. Contacted support and never heard back. Save your money and get something else.

Fit and feel is great. Doesn’t hold up to use like previous versions. Have bought many of these. Have 6 pairs overall. As others have noted the material doesn’t hold up as well as the older versions used to. Quickly gets worn spots around the toe area. So, great for indoor and light use. Doesn’t hold up to wear and tear of trail or heavy use.

Dont't hold up I have bought the Vapor GLOVE 1, 2 and 3. Not the 4 Love the show, when new. I only use for travel and the gym so they really are not abused. I do wear them in work like a slipper because they are comfortable and good for your feet. The problem is they do not hold up to any standard of use it seems. They always begin to tear away at mid height, above the sols in the fabric, thus it is not repairable. They only have a 6 month life if you care that they don't look ratty.

Very comfortable but not durable I’ve been wearing various Merrill minimalist shoes for many years starting with the original trail glove. Unfortunately I’ve found that (at least to me) they have been getting a bit less “minimalist” with each new version, so I decided to try the vapor glove 3. I absolutely loved the feel of VG3 shoes; so much that I immediately ordered 2 additional pair just in case VG4 comes out and they aren’t as minimalist as the previous edition. Unfortunately shortly after I received the additional VG3 shoes I noticed the soles on my first pair were showing premature wear. My use up to that point had been walking on unpaved trails as well as casual wear to work, etc, and compared to the wear rate I’ve experienced on all of my other Merrill shoes I was really disappointed.

Needs some improvement I've had Vapor Glove 1, 2 (still do), and now 3. The major difference that I've found with V3 is the material appears to be more durable. In addition, the sole of the shoe is a bit stiffer than the previous versions and there is greater arch support. I like the fact that the shoe appears to be more durable, however I don't like the fact that there is more arch support and the sole feels a bit stiffer. One of my biggest gripes with the Vapor Gloves is they tend to develop holes pretty quickly in the mesh. I always line the problem areas of with Gear Aid fabric repair tape to cover the holes. Previously to wearing Vapor Gloves I wore the original Trail Gloves. If Merrell could replace the mesh they currently use with the Vapor Gloves with the mesh they use with the Trail Gloves I would be one happy camper. In regards to sizing, I wore a size 10 in version 2 and a size 10.5 in version 3.
